Does anyone here use escort live? I'm debating whether or not to get it. For people that do have it, where are you located and is it worth it?

One of my friends has this in their Camaro. He swears its the greatest thing since sliced bread. I will be getting one for my CS soon.

Nice, I just got it and it's pretty good so far! Can't wait until I get to use it on a long trip filled with interstates.

Are you guys talking about GPS? I can only think of another type of escort.

That's sweet but how many people have escort live to make this effective enough. It's like socially alerting others of speed traps. That's a good idea.

That's exactly what it is. Since its still a fairly new concept, not a lot of people know about it yet. However, I live in Auburn, AL and see a few people in my city using it.

Escort should pair up with WAZE if they want to sell more lives.

Thats the only reason I don't have it (my 9500ix has most of the features offered, just not live radar)

I have Escort Live, i havent had to make a long trip with it yet but it does warn of red light cameras and speedtraps.

When you are getting laser'd or hit with radar a prompt pops up on the phone asking if you can confirm a cop actively lasering the area, or if its a false positive, or if you have no idea.

Unless reported as a false positive it flags the general area and warns other drivers coming through the area through the radar and phone even if the cop has left.

On the map display it shows little icons overlaying google maps with the locations of where cops are using k, ka, laser, and x band, red light cameras, police spotted, speed traps and speed cameras, or users can submit an other with a description.

I decided not to get it when purchased my Bel Pro500.
May be someday when it's getting widely available.

Thanks but I'm already 60 deep with the install and cable not looking to spend another 130 plus monthly charges.
