A radar detector that's ready for your connected car
Escort's iXc radar detector brings on-the-road protection into the 21st century with built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity, so automatic updates can help keep you ahead of new radar technologies and other threats well into the future. Escort's long-range protection and GPS assistance make you aware of potential issues in the present, and built-in Bluetooth® compatibility lets you add your smartphone as a guardian. It also features advanced technology to further suppress false alerts from new sources on the road, and it learns over time to stop other false alerts too.
Built-in Wi-Fi that talks to your car's network
The Escort iXc's built-in Wi-Fi compatibility lets it connect with your car's Wi-Fi signal (or portable hotspot, if that's how you roll). You can take advantage of all the real-time info like updated speed-trap alerts and false alert zones, without accessing the Escort Live app on your phone and depending on a Bluetooth connection — the radar detector takes care of it automatically. All you have to do is pair the app on your phone with your vehicle's Wi-Fi signal and the detector once, and the detector will automatically remember to activate Escort Live every time you get into your car with your phone. The built-in Wi-Fi also allows the detector to download firmware updates automatically — no need to download them from the web and transfer them to the detector.
Stay in the know with the Escort Live app
The Escort Live app is a simple way to get your iPhone® or Android™ smartphone involved in reducing your stress while driving. The app combines your GPS location information with real-time reports from other Escort Live users to keep you abreast of potential threats in your vicinity. You can also use the app to report your own sightings of enforcement or other potential travel hazards, which will then be instantly available to other Escort Live users. The app also alerts you to major changes in the posted speed limit, so you can stay on top of the situation. The Escort Live app is free to download, but a subscription fee is required to use many aspects of the Escort Live service — Escort includes a 1-year trial of the Escort Live Premium service with purchase of the iXc detector.
Works without Wi-Fi, too
With the iXc's built-in Bluetooth connectivity, you won't need Wi-Fi to take advantage of the Escort Live features. You can simply download the free app to your phone and pair the detector with your phone for instant wireless communication between the detector and the app — no additional hardware or cords needed.
A handy view
The Escort iXc's multi-color OLED display gives you a quick, easy-to-follow view of pertinent information about incoming threats. You can choose the backlight color to complement your vehicle's interior lighting, and the recognizable icons and graphics really stand out on the detector's screen. You'll also get voice alerts in English or Spanish so you can make timely decisions while keeping your eyes on the road.
AutoLearn feature for fewer false alerts
The iXc's AutoLearn feature combines GPS location information with the unique frequency footprint of signals it picks up, so it can recognize where you're likely to get a false alert along your drive. You'll hear fewer false alerts, even if you don't mark those locations as false alerts yourself. After as few as three hits on the same location of a false alert, you won't be bothered again.
In-Vehicle Technology (IVT) filtering
Factory collision avoidance systems help make cars even more safe by keeping drivers aware of potential accidents, but they wreak havoc on radar detectors because they employ similar frequencies as conventional radar guns. The Escort iXc's updatable IVT system recognizes collision avoidance and adaptive cruise control signals and separates them from the real threats, for fewer annoying false alerts.
Detect threats from far away
Escort has further improved the iXc's ability to sniff out signals far ahead of your car, so you're sure to get alerts with plenty of advance warning. Whether you're worried about X-band, K-band, Superwide Ka-band, or POP radar guns, Escort has you covered. That goes for laser enforcement as well, including off-axis signals that would get by lesser detectors. Escort's digital signal processor turns those signal detections into actual alerts quickly.
Camera locations database
The iXc comes with a preloaded database of safety, red-light, and radar camera locations across North America, allowing the detector to warn you when you get near. You can download updates, back up your data, and maintain the database through Escort's website or via Wi-Fi updates. You'll need a subscription to update the iXc's database — update subscriptions are available through Escort's website, and your iXc purchase includes 3 free months of the service.
Recall important locations
Just tap a button on the keyboard to store locations along the road where the speed limit drops quickly, or where you might encounter heavy enforcement. The iXc will warn you when you approach them in the future. Or press the mute button at the location of a known false signal — the detector will remember the signal, muting the alert the next time you pass by. You'll hear an alert if another type of signal comes from the same location..
The iXc's programmable features let you set it up to detect and alert you how you want. You can choose the bands to monitor, which meter you want to see, and more. Variable speed sensitivity allows the detector to run at maximum sensitivity at highway speeds, then to move automatically to city mode when you slow down, eliminating false alarms caused by outside interference. It can even give you an alert when you're going over a pre-determined speed limit. You'll have three sensitivity levels to choose from, and five different brightness settings, including fully dark.
The whole enchilada
Your iXc comes with a travel case, 12-volt SmartCord, and Escort's innovative EZ Mag Mount. The mount securely fastens to your windshield and provides quick, one-touch attachment for your detector, with minimal bouncing as you drive. The SmartCord lets you see alerts when the detector's in fully dark mode, or mute the detector without touching it. And when it's time to update the database of cameras and enforcement areas, the iXc's mini-USB input makes it easy for data transfer from your computer if you can't use Wi-Fi.
