ESCORT Inc., the industry leader of radar detection technology, announced that it is rewarding top users and chief early adopters of its multi-award winning ESCORT Live™ real-time ticket protection network. Prizes include premium consumer electronics and cash awards.

ESCORT Inc. (, designer of ESCORT Live™, the social network for the road, announced that it has begun offering rewards and prizes to the most active ‘scout’ contributors in the ESCORT Live™ nation of drivers. Based on monthly statistics pulled from scout network reporting, top ESCORT Live™ users are being rewarded with prizes that include the new iPad 3, premium ESCORT products and cash. “As we watch the population of ESCORT Live™ ‘scouts’ continue to grow exponentially, we wanted to make sure to thank our uppermost early adopters who are paving the way with the most network alerts by sharing their real-time data with the most drivers,” said Dave Smidebush, ESCORT Vice-president of Marketing. ESCORT Live™ information, contest rewards and details can be found at or by calling the firm direct (800.433.3487).

Named an Edmunds ‘top ten best new product’ as well as a Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice and a Car and Driver ‘Top Ten Most Promising New Technology’ award winner, ESCORT Live™ has received extensive national market exposure. Now, as an award winning product and company, ESCORT is sharing that success with the most active network users in the form of contest rewards.

ESCORT Live™ delivers revolutionary radar and laser ticket protection by using real-time, cloud-based threat and information sharing among countless drivers using the app on their smartphone (iPhone and Android). With the ESCORT Live™ app operating uninterrupted on their smartphone, networked drivers are continually safeguarded against radar and laser real-time ticket threats even before they are in range of enforcement guns!

Since its recent introduction, ESCORT Live™ has saved networked drivers countless potential tickets (ESCORT Live™ can alert to all speed enforcement guns and bands used in North America today including laser, Ka, K and X band monitoring devices).

ESCORT Live™ uses Bluetooth technology embedded in SmartCord Live™ cords and a unique app for the driver’s smartphone. When alerts are detected, they are transmitted to the ESCORT Live™ “cloud” and then broadcast across the ESCORT Live™ network, notifying drivers of potential ticket threats. In addition to network alerts, the new smartphone app technology provides ESCORT’s industry-leading Defender® database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as ESCORT’s patented GPS features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.

Unique to the category is the ESCORT Live™ community’s real-time national reach and scale. Currently there are more than 1 million ESCORT and BELTRONICS ESCORT Live™ compatible radar detectors in use throughout North America. Multiply this data gathering and sharing process by millions of miles and millions of driving hours and the result is a nation of protected ESCORT Live™ drivers. “Following an ESCORT Live™ driver yields excellent information about what lies ahead because the first vehicle’s alerts are seamlessly transmitted to other cars equipped with the ESCORT Live™ app,” Smidebush said.

Customer reaction to the ESCORT Live™ app and its social networking protection has been overwhelmingly favorable. "Not only are our customers hugely favorable to the network, they have the opportunity to earn prizes and awards for their scouting," said Smidebush.
