Additionally their Escort live feature is pretty cool where is warns you via your Apple or Android phone on speed traps ahead based on another vehicle which had already passed the area with an Escort detector in their car. The cool thing I really like about the V1 is the arrow system which lets you know where the radar source is coming from.
Don't fall for the hype on Escort Live. Overpriced, under performing. Restricted to just Belscort (Bel/Escort) owners that have a Smart phone. Trapster is free and open to EVERYONE, even to those without an RD.
