LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ESCORT, the leader in premium radar and laser detection technology, today announced the next generation of its award winning ESCORT Live App for iOS and Android. Since 2012, ESCORT Live has revolutionized the detection industry with patented technology allowing Escort detectors to automatically share alerts in real-time with other users.
The NEW ESCORT Live App enables users to receive alerts across both ESCORT and Cobra platforms. The convergence of these communities creates one of the nation's largest networks of connected drivers, effectively providing limitless detection of speed and red light enforcement.
Users will be able to Drive Smarter® with a complete array of driving information at their fingertips.
- A Reimagined User Interface optimized to reduce driver distraction while providing highly relevant driving alerts and information
- Enhanced Map View with direction up mode, embedded traffic, night mode, and auto-zoom based on vehicle speed for improved navigation capabilities
- Pop-Up Alerts mirror the detector display to clearly warn of upcoming driving threats while simultaneously providing contextual information from the Map View
- New CloudSource™ Platform intelligently aggregates and displays information from multiple sources including sensors, databases, and user input, ensuring driver alerts are always relevant, timely and accurate
- Get Directions provides routing information to get you to your destination while avoiding delays
- Car Finder makes it easy to find your vehicle, even in the most confusing parking lots
"The New ESCORT Live app, with its newly expanded nationwide community of both sensor-based and user-based alerts, generates more than 8 million verified alerts per month.", said Manuel Jaime, CTO Cedar Electronics, parent company of Escort and Cobra. "It is built to operate with basic to advanced connectivity across many device models, can incorporate additional 3rd party driving services and content, and will ultimately integrate with existing and new video products introduced by Cedar Electronics. This forward-thinking app platform will power Escort devices for years to come connecting drivers with alerts and information to help them drive smarter."
The New ESCORT Live App will be available on February 1st as a free update for all users from the Apple App Store and Google Play. Users who register the app with their ESCORT devices will receive all levels of alert information for free.
