You can use Escort Live with limited features for free as long as you want with no additional hardware. Download it and try it.

OK...I wasn't seeing any alerts, and the app implied I would need to pay for a subscription in order to do so. Unless there are simply zero alerts in the entire Las Vegas area. Am I missing something?

Also, add to the list of suggested features:
Allow mph/kph to be set in the application settings. I'm not sure how useful this would be for me if I'm stuck looking at kph because of "where my phone is registered", which is very much in the USA.

You can only see 25 miles away from you in any direction (50sq miles around you). Also alerts fade away after about an hour. Both of these limit alerts that are no longer useful.

You will also only see Cop Spotted and Mobile Camera alerts on the free version. To see radar alerts reported from Escort Live user you will need to subscribe.

When you first start the app it should tell you how many are using it in your area. I believe it checks this once per day.

Would like to be able to overlay live traffic on the map. I travel a lot and use live traffic to keep me from traffic problems when using live I have to switch back and forth from live to maps and back. Since both are google maps I would think this could be done fairly easy.

I don't want auto dimming... I'd like an actual night mode like google maps or any other stand alone gps has.

night mode:

This one is Catch 22 IMO. If people end up not subscribing because there are little or no alerts then it will never or it will take longer to get better to be useful. You have to start somewhere. The drawback as you may be anticipating is that the first ones trying it will not see a big advantage until more users try the system. That can be said for a lot of other new or alternative products. Hydrogen fueled cars come to mind.

Default What about

Since it is using the phones gps for tracking encounters. What about using the same information to have the radar detector go from city to high way based on speed? Possibly make it adjustable of speed threshold..

Cool please make these changes

I spend 3/4 hours a day in the car, NY/NJ area. I want to use this rather than trapster. Just got DW, so now ZR$ works. Thanks.
However, these features would make a big differance, please add.
I have latest EL, lastest DW firmware, Latest android for Droid 3, Verizon

1) Big issue: Need Night mode. The screen is way too bright for night use. Basically brinding, even in my off center dash mount. this is saftey issue.

2) EL report button function. This would be better with the option that first push brings up large report menu (with our 6 choices) and second push (if I don't hit a large button on the phone) would report cop spotted, as it does now w/ 1 push. Right now, acidental first push reports immediatly without confermation. I would like to report speed traps, but the tiny report menue button on phone is too hard to hit while driving.

3) Buttons on phone screen need resizing. The map/Dash buttons are huge, perfect for hitting while driving, but these are really almost never used. I feel the dashboard screen is really not usefull unless your spedo on the car is broken. The commonly used buttons, for reporting and centering are too small. These I need all the time, and are too small and close together to use easilly without mistake. Please reverse the sizing, maybe shink/eliminate/make trasparent in corner, the Escort logo from the limited size screen.

4) If I dragged the screen to veiw out in distance (or hit screen because I tried using report menu button, but it's too small to hit accuratly) this takes us off autocentering. It will stay off location. Please make it return to autocentering after a timeout, so I don't glance at the map, and see no threats, because I am at the wrong place.

5) Please look at "Trapster" interface, and make the free version easy for non-escort owners to report. Make display of these uncomfermed reports a optional display. Maybe a nice button that you freeded up from resizing dashboard buttons.

6) please negotiate with "Trapster" and make optional display of their data. In areas wher there is little coverage by escort "scouts" this would be a big plus. But, make it so I can shut it off. Right now, I have both, but it's difficult to switch between apps.

7) I noticed that if I am on the phone (verizon limitation) no data is excahged. This I expect. But when I hit report, I expect it to update that data base once I hang up. It doesn't. I have checked this mutiple times, and drivers are missing out on my reports.

Thanks in advance.
You guys are the best.

Smile forgot to clarify

I forgot: i got the plugin version of EL on pre-order, but stopped using it beacuse of the problems I described above, and force close issues. I keep it in a second car that doesn't have ZR4 shifter. Now, I amd tring again with DW, and it looks like we have more users. Also, it looks like force close maybe resolved.

But, please fix the button size and add night mode. These guys are saftey issues.

Thanks again for the best RD in the world!
