This is a wonderful product. I have the Escort 9500ix and it's coupled with the Escort Live app.
This product REALLY works!!!
I have detected the police operating their speed trap shops more than 5 miles away and avoided shopping at their establishments because of this product. If you don't want to pay through the nose for driving, this will help you to do it. You know in advance where the cameras are located, where the speed traps are set up and when they are trying to catch you napping. In addition to the other things, the gps info and locations are awesome.
You can't go wrong with this combo. Try it, you'll LOVE it.
After researching radar detectors online and reading just about every review out there, it came down to either this, or the cobra iradar. Every review and test I found, showed the Escort SmartRadar out shining the cobra iradar in every aspect. Miles equal minutes! Wen your on the thruway or just around town, the sensitivity of this detector has amazed me! Definitely would recommend this to all iPhone owners!
