ESCORT Live™ Expands with Prizes for Top Ranked Alert Contributors - Preps for CTIA Mobile Wireless Announcement

ESCORT Inc., the industry leader of radar detection technology, announced that it is continuing to reward top users and chief early adopters in its multi-award winning ESCORT Live™ real-time ticket protection network. Prizes include premium consumer electronics and cash awards.

West Chester, OH, May 04, 2012 -- ESCORT Inc., designer of ESCORT Live™, the social network for the road, today announced it is continuing to award prizes to the most active 'scout' contributors in the ESCORT Live™ nation of drivers. Initiated in early Q1, the prizes are awarded monthly based on statistics pulled from scout network reporting. The top ESCORT Live™ users receive prizes including iPads, premium ESCORT products and cash. "We continue to see the population of ESCORT Live™ 'scouts' grow exponentially. As part of our gratitude for our early adopters who continue to pave the way in sharing the most network alerts, we are expanding our gift appreciation program," said Dave Smidebush, ESCORT Vice-president of Marketing. ESCORT Live™ information, monthly rewards and details can be found at or by calling the firm direct (800-433-3487).

Repeatedly called out in prominent reviews as a leading new technology (Edmunds 'top ten best new product', Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice and a Car and Driver 'Top Ten Most Promising New Technology' award winner), ESCORT Live™ continues receiving national market exposure. Added to the long list of accolades, ESCORT Live™ was recently named a CNET 'must see' new product.

The revolutionary radar and laser ticket protection provided by ESCORT Live™ is accomplished by using real-time, cloud-based threat and information sharing among countless drivers using the app on their smartphone (iPhone and Android).

Additionally, ESCORT will debut a completely new product at the CTIA Mobile Wireless week in New Orleans. That new product is designed to exclusively compliment ESCORT Live™. Both the new product and the award-winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app will be featured by ESCORT at both major CTIA press gatherings: ShowStoppers @ CTIA 2012 (6:00 to 9:00 pm, Monday, May 7th, Astor Crowne Plaza, Canal Street at Bourbon, downtown New Orleans) and the PEPCOM MobileFocus event (7:00 to 10:00 pm, Tuesday, May 8th, Hyatt Regency, 601 Loyola Avenue, downtown New Orleans). ESCORT invites press and media attendees to visit their booth at both press gatherings.

Since its recent introduction, ESCORT Live™ has saved networked drivers countless potential tickets (ESCORT Live™ can alert to all speed enforcement guns and bands used in North America today including laser, Ka, K and X band monitoring devices).

ESCORT Live™ uses Bluetooth technology embedded in SmartCord® Live™ cords and a unique app 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. In addition to network alerts, the new smartphone app technology provides ESCORT's industry-leading Defender® database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as ESCORT's patented GPS features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.

Unique to the radar detector and ticket protection category is the ESCORT Live™ community's real-time national reach and scale. Growing daily, there are more than 1 million ESCORT and BELTRONICS ESCORT Live™ compatible radar detectors in use throughout North America. Multiply this data gathering and sharing process by millions of miles and millions of driving hours and the result is a nation of protected ESCORT Live™ drivers. "Following an ESCORT Live™ driver yields excellent information about what lies ahead because the first vehicle's alerts are seamlessly transmitted to other cars equipped with the ESCORT Live™ app," Smidebush said.
