This mentions Escort Live (the subscription-based community reported speed trap software for your phone), I believe this detector usually comes with a 12 month subscription, is this included on Woot?

It's a well known fact that Escort collects your data including your name, home address, driving record, and your speeding/driving history that is collected by their detectors, required phone apps and required registration process. This information is sold to third parties. They have removed core functions from their detectors and turned them into subscription based options. This company has really become anti-consumer. I would avoid all their products and do research on their anti-consumer practices.

Escort IX?

There are machines on Ix...

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

For just a few more bucks, buy the Uniden R3 (or R1 if you don't need GPS). The R3 is the best nowadays. Better than this or Valentine1.

The Uniden R3 is the new gold standard. I have a R3 and a Escort Max II. R3 is much better. Escort has been VERY slow with firmware and software updates, and their app does not connect consistently which greatly diminishes the effectiveness of their detectors.

Any capability to filter out the false-positives from radar-based collision detection emissions?

Yes. It has an "AutoLoK" K band reduction mode that eliminates about 90% of false positives from anti-collision/lane guidance K band sources, and very few police departments still use K band for speed enforcement. I bought this a year ago when it was $349, and it has been great. I did not register for the Escort Live stuff...just using it for standard detection. Extended range of 6-7 times police radar reading is plenty for most users. Bad timing with an instant-on unit will still defeat just about any detector.

Much of New England state police still use K-Band, for whatever it's worth to those reading.

If I never registered the product or downloaded the app, this wouldn't apply to me, correct?

If you calmly explain to the officer that you are merely "travelling" then you won't have to even show them your license. If they don't buy that, tell them that you're not operating a commercial vehicle, and that the laws have no jurisdiction over you. Works every time, despite the numerous youtube videos to the contrary.

I'm sure they do this out of the goodness of their own hearts and refuse any compensation for "sharing."

Not if they're aiming 3 cars in front of you. This detector will pick that up and save you. If they're aiming right at you then you're screwed. Use this detector, along with Waze, and you should be golden. Nothing is 100%

I know that you guys are only kidding when you say some day they will have radar detector detectors, but the sad reality is, they have had them for years.

I know for a fact that the state of Virginia has had them since the early 90's, because I drove a semi over the road from 1990 until 2005, and was warned that Virginia didn't allow radar detectors in ANY vehicle, and that they had ways of knowing, even it was a hidden mount. Nowadays, radar detectors are forbidden in any commercial vehicle, due to federal D.O.T. regulations. I know there are some other states that have detector detectors mostly in use at weigh station, but I don't recall which ones, as it's been a few years.

Just send them a text message!

Seriously, my biggest issue with all the texters is they defy attempts to "bin" them (tailgater, speeder, jackrabbit/lazy starts) since it all depends on whether or not they happen to be actively texting, which interferes with my ability to weave in and out of rush-hour traffic. :-)

Uh, yeah - pretty sure this works *none* of the time.

Maybe if you're walking, but if you're operating a motor vehicle - you've implicitly consented to all kinds of things, not the least of which is having a drivers license.

Not quite so. In California, obtaining a license requires that I give an implied consent to taking DUI tests. But if you haven't signed for the license, than you haven't given any kind of consent.

Driving without a license is an offence of its own - implied consent has nothing to do with it.

Detecting radar detectors is not technological, it is simple police observation of humanity. When someone without a detector comes within radar range, radar displays a fairly constant rate of speed, at worst a slight decline in their speed, consistent with the driver seeing the cruiser, taking their foot off the pedal, and then looking down at the spedometer, going "Oh sh*t" and slowing down more agressivly. Whereas someone with a detector slows down rapidly from the git-go. Same observation techniques are used to catch DUIs, narcotics posession, those with warrants, and just plain bad drivers (like I used to be)...

Jesus you people have no idea what you're talking about. There are radar detector detectors. If you simply google "radar detector detector" you can find a plethora of videos showing the equipment. This is the entire reason Beltronics came out with the "STI Driver" which is a magnesium cased radar detector that has zero leaking and makes it completely undetectable to the radar detector detectors. Stop spewing BS.

The devices utilized by law enforcement to detect RDs are called RDDs such as the VG-2 Interceptor, Spectre III or Spectre Elite.
