Escort SmartRadar for Android or iPhone radar detector
Escort launches a new era in radar detectors, putting your smartphone to work as the display. The Escort SmartRadar is one of the top models in performance, alerting you to speed traps as you drive. Escort lets you watch the watchers.
The good: The stealthy and accurate Escort SmartRadar doesn't attract a lot of attention. A small, remote display allows it to be used without the app. The Escort Live app adds a database of recently reported Live Alerts and red-light cameras.
The bad: Specific hardware for Android and iOS compatibility. High sticker price compared with Cobra iRadar. Installation is semipermanent.
The bottom line: It's pricey, but the stealthy Escort SmartRadar detector and the Escort Live app proved to be more accurate than the competition and triggered fewer false alarms.
