Our take on the Escort Live!™ Convenience Kit for iPhone®

by Dominic Devito
Escort

You're already using the Escort Live! app on your iPhone in conjunction with your Escort radar detector and SmartCord Live, so you already know about how the service provides real-time, crowd-sourced warnings for danger spots as you drive. But you'd probably also like a better way to keep your iPhone safely in view and fully charged while running the Escort Live! app.

That's where the Escort Live! Convenience Kit comes in handy. It features a removable mount that attaches your car's air vents. You can adjust the cradle to fit your iPhone, even if it's in a case, and you'll have plenty of room to plug in the power cable. You can even rotate your iPhone up to 360 degrees to get the view that's right for you. Escort also includes a 30-pin USB-to-iPhone charging cable that works with the SmartCord Live's extra USB port, so you can leave your regular iPhone cable at home.

Highlights:

  • car kit for iPhone includes vent mount and 30-pin USB-to-iPhone charging cable
  • removable, adjustable vent mount with cradle allows 360° rotation of iPhone
  • works with Escort SmartCord Live
  • warranty: 1 year.
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Overview: This package is offered as an accessory for Escort Live!-compatible radar detectors. It is designed to mount your iPhone on your vehicle's dashboard, console, or windshield so you can easily see the Escort Live! displays on the screen. It can also be used to mount practically any smartphone or digital media player. The package consists of the Arkon Mega Grip Removable Air Vent Mount and a 3' iPhone/iPod-to-USB charging cable.

Vent Mount: The Arkon Mega Grip Removable Vent Mount is a versatile device holder that attaches to your vehicle's air vent louvers for convenient placement of your smartphone. The mount has adjustable padded sides that grip your device, with or without a case. The lower support legs are adjustable so you can keep the cable connection port free. A 3' Apple-to-USB charging cable (30-pin dock connector to Type A USB) is included for use with iPhones.

Usage: The mount has spring-loaded ratcheting side grips that can accommodate virtually any smartphone from 1.75" to 3.25" wide. After placing your device in the mount, you can squeeze the side grips together until they are snug against the phone. Once the phone is secured in the mount, you can rotate the mount 360° for portrait or landscape orientation and tilt the screen to any angle for best visibility. A quick-release button springs opens the side grips for quick removal. The mount is designed to clip into your air vent louvers for a convenient, easy-to-reach mount.

Escort Live! Convenience Kit for iPhone

Written By keneficker, Dayton, TX on Thursday, November 15, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought a Escort Live! Convenience Kit for iPhone Windshield and dash mount, beanbag base, and charging cord. This one is not as stable and its hard to find a location for it to stay atched to. Window mount is better. 5 Stars on it. Pay the extra $.
Pros:
less expensive,
Cons:
weight of phone will cause it to fall, not at eye level like the window mount.
