West Chester, OH (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
ESCORT Inc.(ESCORTinc.com), designer of ESCORT Live™, the social network for the road, released ESCORT Live™ V2.0.4 Android update. 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). The V2.0.4 update allows improved ESCORT Live™ app performance on Android devices. With the ESCORT Live™ app operating 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 introduction, ESCORT Live™ has saved networked drivers millions of 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).
Available online via Android smartphones in the Google Play Store, the V2.0.4 ESCORT Live™ Ticket Protection app update includes:
- Improved app performance for many Android phones. This is important support information for coverage of the more than 70 different Android platforms operating on over 600 different model phones with more than 500 hundred million Android activations since its release.
- Real time radar and laser detector alerts are now audible on the driver’s smartphone (optional in app preference setting). This is ideal for smartphone installations and use integrated into the driver’s vehicle sound system which results in ESCORT Live™ alerts audible through the vehicle sound system. Similarly, ESCORT Live™ audible alerts are now conveniently available for motorcycle riders using the Android ESCORT Live™ app with connected Bluetooth headsets.
- Over-speed-limit warnings are now simultaneously audible during radar alerts. Over-speed-limit alerts provide important additional driving safety information and are made available as they occur for enhanced ‘eyes on the road’ driving.
Named ‘best new product, SEMA’, Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice and a Car and Driver Top Ten Most Promising New Technology, ESCORT Live™ continues to receive extensive national market exposure.
ESCORT Live™ uses Bluetooth technology embedded in SmartCord Live™ cords and the ESCORT Live™ smartphone app. 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 ESCORT Live™ 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.
