No. In fact, none of Escorts radar detectors do. The USB charging ports that would otherwise be used used to charge your iPhone are built into the Escort Live SmartCords, not into their radar detectors. The SmartRadar already has Escort Live built into it, and so there is no reason to purchase an Escort Live SmartCord.
The SmartRadar comes with a direct-wire power cable that can be used to tap into your car's fuse box, and it comes with a rear-view mirror power-tap cable (if your RVM has power taps).
Instead, you can purchase an inexpensive USB adapter that you can plug into your car's cigar lighter socket, and charge your iPhone.
