The key to our patented ESCORT Live™ is the real-time national reach, making it the ultimate social network for drivers. Currently there are more than a million compatible ESCORT or BELTRONICS radar detectors on the road in the United States. Multiply this data gathering and sharing process by millions of miles and driving hours and the result is a nation of protected ESCORT Live™ drivers.

Here's how it works: Imagine departing for the morning commute. Your neighbor's ESCORT radar detector encounters a laser gun; that alert information is relayed immediately to the ESCORT Live™ network as a confirmed "laser detected" threat. Later, as you head in the same direction, even when you are miles away from the waiting laser gun, your smartphone equipped with the ESCORT Live™ app displays a red "laser spotted" alert before you are in range.

ESCORT Live™ alerts are displayed with band, signal strength and frequency. Events spotted previously in the network are indicated by an "approaching live alert" message with directional location arrow and distance-to-arrive to the alert source.

Alerts appear at their coordinate location and are marked with an intuitive "heat map" decaying icon that changes color and transparency based on alert relevance.

The ESCORT Live™ app provides the latest available information on speed cameras, speed traps and speed limit data. Important driving data is displayed for compass heading, vehicle speed and over-speed alerts. Users are automatically updated with the latest detector software and select models will add our traffic sensor rejection (TSR) software to eliminate annoying false alerts from traffic flow sensors. The app features map and dashboard views with multiple user settings. Get connected today!
