Boston, MA, October 16, 2012 -- ESCORT Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world's best premium automotive accessories,
continues with its widespread 'social network for the road' media campaign with live demonstrations of the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app. The expanded campaign

radar/laser detector at GDGT Live, Boston. GDGT Live is scheduled for October 17, 6 - 10 PM, at the Bijou Nightclub (51 Stuart Street). The GDGT Live Boston show features

new SmartRadar™ detector provides drivers a class-leading out-of-sight radar detector that connects seamlessly with the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app
designed for their smartphones."
ESCORT SmartRadar™ is a supercharged, out-of-sight radar/laser detector with built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology. The SmartRadar™ unit, similar to
the PASSPORT series of radar and laser detectors including the 9500ix and 8500 X50, is designed to easily connect with ESCORT Live™, the multi-award winning ticket
The real benefit of the new SmartRadar™ unit is its seamless connectivity to the award-winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app. Once connected, drivers
have instant access to real-time shared alerts passed through the Live™ app network.
Frequently seen in national reviews as a leading new mobile technology (Edmunds 'top ten best new product', Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice, a Car and Driver 'Top Ten
Most Promising New Technology' award winner and a CNET 'must see' new product), ESCORT Live™ uses Bluetooth technology to connect in real time with the unique ESCORT
Live™ ticket protection app designed for the driver's smartphone. When alerts are detected, they are transmitted to the ESCORT Live™ "cloud" and then
broadcast across the ESCORT Live™ network, notifying drivers of potential ticket threats.
"ESCORT compatible radar detectors including the PASSPORT series and SmartRadar™ models, when connected with the award winning ESCORT Live™ ticket
protection app, provide ticket protection technology and road awareness unmatched in the industry," Gividen added.
The smartphone app also provides ESCORT's test-winning Defender® database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as patented GPS
features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.
