Paid for subscription that don’t work
I already paid $120 for the detector, which said is compatible with the app, which is was, and functioned as advertised, as it should. But now I have to pay for a subscription in a world of subscriptions? Yeah feels like a cheap shot, maybe it’s just time to upgrade to escort.
I love this this app. It save me from unexpected radars, red light cameras. If you live in the DC, Virginia area you can locate all speed cameras, red light cameras. It also locate speed traps.
I’ve had my iRadar for years now. But the other day driving on a long trip it stopped displaying speed limit info and alerts. Now flashes a prompt for me to pay. Saying my subscription was up. I never had subscription. Now the device is garbage because of a bait and switch years later. I won’t pay $4.99 a month for something that was free for 5 years.
The app is not useful by itself. I use my detector along with the Waze app and feel fairly insulated.
Still learning but I like what I’ve seen so far
Takes too long for Escort to address issues that cause the app to crash after every single Apple Software Update is released...
My speaker blew two days after I installation.
This used to be a great app. Now, some not so smart person decided to have bright green bars at all times making it a distraction—if everything’s OK ... why clutter things up ? The voltage read out was handy too; now it seems to be gone. When there’s an alert, the red is less prominent than the green. When you reach the speed limit, the digital speed read out turns to ‘invisible’ red numbers that you can just see in dim lighting & not at all in broad daylight. Come on now, who needs a radar app that you can’t read when you hit the limit ? If you drove under the limit you wouldn’t need radar in the 1st place. I leave the thing on in the background to utilize the full features of the detector & turn on another app to get a speedometer read out that you can actually see & other critical info
I have used this app for quite a few years with at least 5 different detectors, but this is the first time I remember having to pay for the service. I could probably avoid seeing what others report, but they also included the displaying of current speed limits with the add on. That doesn’t seem really fair.
