Default Just installed the Max 360, any need for Escort Live anymore?

Short description: I have a Smart Radar on my motorcycle. The SR only works with Escort Live 2.1.3. As far as I can tell, 2.1.3 crashes when using with the Max 360.

I was just thinking, since I have a Max 360 now and it's replacing the Passport (which needed EL for GPS), do I have any need for EL now? I realize without it I can't help others with Live Alerts, but that's not my fault, it's Escort's for not making 2.1.4 compatible with SR.

Thanks!

I don't use it with the 360 and never did with the Max and never received a ticket. I think its a waste and you will get more false positives with Escort Live than it will help. Plus a lot of people do not use it so its usefulness is limited.

I'm not sure what "Smartphone" you have but the 360 Max should work with the latest version for Apple or Android. In my particular case I'm using an IPhone 6 with my Max 360 on my Goldwing M/C. I have had no crashing issues. I feed the audio to my helmet headset.
I find the updates to the EL to be helpful so I keep it current. It may give some false alerts but I make the decision to ignore them or not. After 45 years of riding with RDs, I'm pretty good at quickly sorting out real or false alerts.

It ended up being a moot point since as long as I don't open the settings on EL it doesn't crash.

Not sure it if was clear, but the issue was that the newest version of EL (2.1.4) won't work at all with the Smart Radar on my motorcycle so I have to run 2.1.3. When I paired 2.1.3 with my Max 360 and opened the settings it crashed. But as I said above, it ended up being a moot point since as long as I don't open the settings on EL it doesn't crash.

It seems I'm all good!
