New York City, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
ESCORT Inc. (ESCORTinc.com), designer and manufacturer of the world's best premium automotive accessories, has arrived in the Big Apple and is demonstrating its all-new ESCORT SmartRadar™ Bluetooth Enabled Radar/Laser Detector at Propel’s Gift Guide show and press event in New York City Wednesday evening. “We continue to receive outstanding media attention for our recently introduced smartphone app, ESCORT Live™. Now we have released a complimentary SmartRadar™ detector designed specifically for drivers who do not currently have a radar detector on the glass and want to easily, automatically, and conveniently, link to the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app,” said Ron Gividen, ESCORT PR Director.
The ESCORT SmartRadar™ is a supercharged, out-of-sight radar/laser detector with built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology. The SmartRadar™ unit is designed to easily connect with ESCORT Live™, ESCORT’s multi-award winning ticket protection network.
The Propel Gift Guide press event is scheduled for June 20, 11 am – 3 pm, at the Marriott Marquis Times Square, New York. ESCORT will be demonstrating both the SmartRadar™ supercharged radar/laser detector and the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app at the Gift Guide press event.
“Key industry experts continue to rate ESCORT as the leading provider of the most advanced radar and laser defense on the market,” said Gividen. “The new SmartRadar™ detector provides drivers a best-in-class out-of-sight radar detector that connects seamlessly with our ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app for their smartphone.”
ESCORT recently debuted the new SmartRadar™ out-of-sight radar/laser detector with built-in Bluetooth® wireless communications at the CTIA Mobile Wireless show in New Orleans early last month.
The SmartRadar™ detector, when connected with the award winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app, provides ticket protection technology and road awareness unmatched in the industry.
“Like many of our products, ESCORT SmartRadar™ helps drivers to drive safer by giving them advanced driving information and awareness,” Gividen added. “Our ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app’s advanced notifications help drivers to prepare for what lies ahead … instead of being surprised.”
SmartRadar™ is a complete, supercharged, quick-install radar/laser detector with built-in Bluetooth® wireless technology for connection to mobile phones and other Bluetooth® devices. Small and compact, SmartRadar™ is designed to quickly and easily mount on the driver’s windshield out-of-sight, directly behind the rearview mirror. SmartRadar™ includes full X, K, and SuperWide Ka radar capability, full laser detection and digital signal processing for reduced false alarms.
But the real benefit of the new SmartRadar™ unit is its seamless connectivity to the award-winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app. Once connected, drivers have instant access to real-time shared alerts passed through the Live™ app network.
Repeatedly called out in prominent reviews as a leading new technology (Edmunds ‘top ten best new product’, Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice, a Car and Driver ‘Top Ten Most Promising New Technology’ award winner and a CNET ‘must see’ new product), 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.
The smartphone app also provides ESCORT’s test-winning Defender® database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as patented GPS features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.
