Default X80 Bluetooth

Why doesn't the X80 automatically connect to bluetooth when it already paired? Each time I enter the vehicle I have to manually connect the bluetooth through the Live App, very inconvenient. Also, the speed does not show up on the detector, it never has. Only the Bluetooth symbol and battery voltage

My X80 also does not automatically connect to bluetooth when it already paired? Each time I enter the vehicle I have to manually connect the bluetooth through the Live App. Using iPhone 5s running 11.0.1.

You'll need to continue doing what you are doing as Escort Radar needs to fix Escort Live for IOS 11.

It's been a know problem since the IOS 11 beta release 5 months ago. (Refer to the other threads on this subject)

It's a known and frustrating issue. Escort is still looking into it with Apple.

Should we find a solution that we can deliver through our products, then we will offer it this way (either via an Escort Live update or a device firmware update). Otherwise it will involve Apple updating iOS 11.

Escort knows about it.

I don't work for Escort. I'm just a customer who helps out in the forum for free.

Default X80

I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I'm not quite sure what I did but I now have the speed limit and current speed displayed. If I remember correctly I had to close out the app twice and restart it, connect the bluetooth and only then did I get the speed limit and current speed to be displayed. I'm not sure about the accuracy of the X80 as i have come upon a police car while on the Interstae and the X80 never did go off. Maybe the State Police car didn't have his radar on, but I doubt that, however I have no way of knowing

Unhappy X80 and Android 8.1

My X80 won't connect to my Google Pixel XL running Android 8.1 - When I hit the bluetooth button on the Escort Live App a list of paired devices comes up, but the X80 is not in the list.

The app will receive an update very soon, possibly later today, with bluetooth changes that should help you.
