Las Vegas, NV November 3, 2011 -- ESCORT Live™, ESCORT's ultimate ticket protection network, has received a Popular Mechanics magazine Editor's Choice award, given
to the top "must-have" products at SEMA, the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world.
"At Popular Mechanics, we celebrate innovation in every facet of life," said lead automotive editor Larry Webster as he presented the awards at a ceremony at
the Venetian hotel here. "These are the most useful, the most innovative, and, simply put, the best products of the year."
"The entire ESCORT team is honored to receive this important award for ESCORT Live, a revolutionary new product that will unite drivers in a social network for the
road," said ESCORT PR Director Ron Gividen, who accepted the award.
ESCORT Live™ is on display along with ESCORT's other award-winning, premium automotive accessories today through Friday in the Las Vegas Convention Center, North
Hall, Booth 11349. In addition, ESCORT will discuss details of ESCORT Live at a press conference at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, in the Media Center at the show.
ESCORT Live™ is the social network for the road where drivers share live alerts with other drivers so everyone in the network can drive smarter. Now on sale
through ESCORT ( http://www.escortradar.com/escort-live/ ), ESCORT Live uses Bluetooth technology embedded in
SmartCord® Live™ cords and a unique app for the driver's smart phone. 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 these live alerts, the system provides ESCORT's industry-leading
Defender® database of fixed position cameras and speed traps.
The key to the ESCORT Live community is real-time national reach and scale, and the fact that it is ready to work with more than one million ESCORT and BELTRONICS
models already in use today. Multiply this data gathering and sharing process by millions of miles and driving hours and the result is a nation of protected ESCORT Live
"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," says ESCORT CEO and President John Larson. "ESCORT Live is a nation of protected drivers helping other drivers in the
ultimate live alert network."
"Our radar detector products have always provided drivers with the highest level of ticket protection in the marketplace," says ESCORT's Vice President of
Product Development Tim Coomer. "Now, with ESCORT Live, ESCORT drivers don't need to be in the range of the threat, they just need to be in the network."
