Default redline downunder

Hi all. I'm in the process of buying the Escort Redline. The whole live cord and app thing is unavailable in Australia.

From what I've read the live side of the cable is of no interest to me. The game changer for me is the bluetooth to smartphone app. The app is not made available to me (iphone) and the cable is too busy.

My question is:
Is there a bluetooth only option for connection and how do I access the app?

thanks in anticipation.

Off hand the only detectors from Escort that have built in bluetooth are the Max 2 and Max 360 i believe.

I understand that. There is an accessory called smart cord, it gives you gps and bluetooth. It also has an app to monitor functions on smart phone.

The upshot is... you can connect bluetooth to the escort redline. The accessories are not available in australia and I rather not have the gps. I'm looking for an alternative.

thanks anyhow.

That is true about a smart cord & Redline. Since live is not available in your country what is the point of having/using BT?

The cord and app have at least 2 functions: 1. the gps live function where speed traps are announced. 2. the bluetooth function that gives control to your smart phone.

I have no interest in the gps live function, I am only looking for the bluetooth to smartphone option.
