DALLAS - ESCORT Inc. (, designer of the category-leading PASSORT 9500ix radar detector, the world's best radar detector, is returning to the TAWA (Texas Auto Writers Association) 2013 Spring Auto Roundup event this week. ESCORT's Auto Roundup homecoming is being celebrated with the announcement that its multi-award winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app and "Connect & Protect" combo featuring the PASSPORT 9500ix radar detector, are on their way to achieving more than 5 million shared saves, another major industry milestone.

"Industry experts overwhelmingly agree that ESCORT is the leading innovator of the most advanced radar and laser defense on the market," said Ron Gividen, ESCORT PR/Media Director. "Our 'Connect & Protect' campaign features the best-in-class 9500ix radar detector and the award-winning ESCORT Live ticket protection app - a combination that provides ticket protection awareness unmatched anywhere."

ESCORT is celebrating the "Connect & Protect" combination with TAWA press and media attendees.

The "Connect & Protect" combination of the world's best radar detector and ticket protection app works to help drivers drive safer by providing the most detailed and complete picture of their driving environment in advance.

ESCORT Live uses Bluetooth technology embedded in SmartCord Live cords and a unique app for the driver's smartphone. When alerts are detected, they are transmitted to the ESCORT Live "cloud" and then broadcast across the ESCORT Live network, notifying drivers of potential ticket threats.

"We are excited about the category-leading level of protection that the 'Connect & Protect' combination brings to radar detector consumers," said Gividen. "The combo technology connects our radar detector users in real time, allowing them to share their radar and driving alerts with others."

The smartphone app also provides ESCORT's test-winning Defender™ database of red light and speed-ticketing camera locations and speed traps as well as patented GPS features including posted speed limit information, over-speed limit alerts, live traffic for route optimization and more.
