CHICAGO, Feb. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — ESCORT Inc. (ESCORTradar.com), designer and manufacturer of the world’s best performing radar and laser detectors, is exhibiting the new PASSPORT® and PASSPORT Max2™ radar detectors at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show this week. ESCORT is part of the aftermarket consumer mobile electronics auto show (booth SH268), which runs through February 22.
ESCORT’s new Bluetooth®-equipped detectors are designed to easily accommodate connection to the highly awarded ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app.
ESCORT will also be demonstrating new features added to its award-winning social app Escort Live™ including Air Patrol and Intelligent Speed Traps. Both features are included in the latest ESCORT Live™ application v2.1.6 update.
The new Air Patrol feature alerts drivers to known areas enforced by aircraft throughout the U.S. Road signs typically mark these locations but can go unnoticed by drivers and may result in heavy fines. The ESCORT Live app™ automatically notifies the user that they are approaching an area where this type of speed monitoring is used.
The ESCORT Live™ v2.1.6 update also includes new ‘Intelligent Speed Trap’ locations. These critical alert locations are the result of compiling millions of Escort Live™ user reports that have been produced automatically by the operation of their radar detector, or, manually by marking a police spotted in the area.
“We’re excited that we can offer known areas of enforcement that have been verified by millions of data points,” said Tim Coomer, Vice President of Product Development. “Advanced notification in these high-risk areas can be extremely useful in defending against instant-on radar and the use of laser guns,” added Coomer.
