    One Simple Flaw

    • Written by from Naples

    Escort makes a great device; however, one serious flaw is the use of a modular RJ-11 connector (standard telephone plug). The latch clip on this plug will easily break rendering your detector useless. If you travel a lot and take your detector with you for use in rental cars, take care to protect the connector plug. To date I have damaged two cords, including the expensive Smart cord because the top clip has snagged on something and broke completely off. Escort is the only electronics company I know of that still uses the RJ-11 connector instead of a more studier micro or mini-USB plug. The plug is very fragile and old tech. I will not purchase another Escort product until they change the style.

    Where was this thing made?

    • Written by from Austin

    I have hardly had a chance to try it out, yet. First day I put it up, the case fully disassembled. It literally fell apart. The top half of the case stayed on the windshield mount and the bottom half just fell off.

    Bought this for my wife's birthday, unfortunately, I "tried it out" before giving it to her...now I might have to buy a second one for myself.

    This has saved me the cost many times over

    • Written by from Pinellas Park

    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.

    Best radar detector for iPhone!

    • Written by from Blasdell

    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!
