Your sarcasm is not appreciated. What would be appreciated would be for Escort to drop the Network requirement to use the EL App so I can actually use my Redline Detector and Smartcord Live and the EL App.

The EL App even has the on-screen option to use the App without a Logon - which you obviously have disabled.



And yes, having invested over $600 in a device that stops working just because there is no network when I'm on the road is very annoying.

I was not being sarcastic before.

That button is to use the app without logging in, it is quite functional. Log out and try it. The app still requires a data connection. That is not going to change.

Your Escort detector will function when the Escort Live app does not have a data connection. You only lose Escort Live related features: Live alerts and speed limit data.

Escort doesn't have enough of an EL community to worry about crowed sourced data and I don't need the Speed Limit data since EL doesn't know the Speed Limit on half of the minor roads in the Western US. When I'm in metro areas, I don't speed. The points being, I don't need EL's "Live" data since there isn't enough of it to make a difference.

I use EL as my 'Dash' for the Redline installed on my Motorcycle. EL sends Alerts to my Bluetooth Headset. If there is no Cellular Data connection available (≥50% of the Western US) I cannot use EL. Therefore I cannot use my Redline since EL is the link between me and the Redline.

I don't have a problem giving Escort access to my location data. You could resolve this "connection" issue by making the Logon/Data Connection a background operation (User configurable) so that when there is a Data Connection, EL preforms a Logon in the background. If the data connection is lost, change the persistent "Network Connection has been lost." to a Dashboard indicator rather than the current persistent popup which is going to cost me, and I suspect others, a speeding ticket - the persistent popup inhibits EL from passing Alerts to my Headset.
