About the Escort M2

A dash cam to accompany your Escort radar detector

Pair Escort's M2 dash cam with a compatible Escort radar detector (not included) to create a highly effective driver alert system. This dash camera records your travels in full 1080p resolution, and it shares a power source with your Escort detector. Connect your cam and radar detector on your windshield using the detector's mount, and your view won't be crowded by a tangled mess of wires and devices.

A sensational picture 

In addition to a 140° wide-angle view and full 1080p high-definition recording, the M2 boasts enhanced night vision and wide dynamic range (WDR) to ensure the best picture quality in all kinds of lighting. The camera also features a built-in microphone so it can record audio as well.

Various recording settings

The M2 starts recording automatically when it powers on and stops recording when powered off. You can program the cam to record in 1-, 2-, or 3-minute clips. When the memory fills up, the oldest clips will be automatically deleted to make room for newer ones. You can adjust the resolution of the image down to 720p to save space, and Escort includes a 16GB microSD™ memory card.

The camera's G-sensor with 3-axis accelerometer senses sudden stops and accelerations, and automatically saves clips if an impact is detected. However, if you'd like to manually save a clip, Escort makes it as easy as pressing the M2's Power/Emergency Recording button. Built-in GPS will tag video footage with essential speed and location info, and audible alerts let you know when eventful video is logged. 

Wi-Fi® for control via app

You can control many of the M2's features through Escort's free Drive Smarter app. The camera's strong, ad hoc, dual-band Wi-Fi® network connects to your phone for expanded controls and automated uploading to cloud storage. You can view live video, start or stop recording, change settings, and edit footage through the app. You can then download the videos to your phone or other smart devices and share them if needed. Escort also makes it easy to send info to your insurance provider with automated incident reports. 

Tap into Drive Smarter's community alerts to stay tuned into what might be waiting on the road ahead.

Emergency mayday alerts

Should the M2 detect an accident, an automatic text will be sent to your assignable emergency contact to let them know.

Parking mode

With hard-wired power via a compatible radar detector, the M2 will automatically save pertinent video if your vehicle is bumped or crunched while parked. A built-in motion sensor triggers the cam to record any suspicious activity in its field of vision as well.

    More details on the Escort M2

    The Escort M2 replaces these items:

    Product Research

    Features

    Overview: The Escort M2 dash camera is designed to mount directly to your compatible Escort radar detector (sold separately) and record the road ahead in 1080p high definition quality.

    Full HD Video: The Escort M2 features wide dynamic range (WDR) imaging and enhanced night recording for optimized video clarity. Video can be recorded in full HD at 1080p/30fps or 720p/30fps. An ultra-wide 140° viewing angle provides a full view of the road ahead and periphery while minimizing edge distortion.

    Continuous Loop Recording: The Escort M2 continually records while the vehicle is powered on, saving video files to the included 16GB micro-SD (cards up to 128GB supported). Video footage is stored in 1-, 2-, or 3-minute clips. When the card is full, it will loop back and automatically record over the oldest files.

    Emergency Recording: This can be done both automatically and manually:

    • Automatic (G-Sensor): A built-in 3-axis accelerometer can sense sudden accelerations, stops, and collisions, automatically protecting footage surrounding the incident.
    • Manual: Video footage can be manually protected by simply pressing the Power/Emergency Recording button on the unit. This too will protect the footage surrounding the time the button is pressed.

    Voice Announcements: The M2 can use voice announcements to give you important system information like when the SD card is full or an impact is detected.

    Drive Smarter APP: The Escort M2 App, available from the Apple App or Google Play stores, lets you configure the dash cam and view recorded video on your smartphone. The smartphone connects to the M2 dash cam via a Bluetooth connection, giving you access to video files and the settings menu. Key options include:

    • Video Resolution: Choices are 1080p/30fps (default) or 720p/30fps. A higher resolution will record a sharper image, but will take up more memory space on the micro-SD card.
    • GPS: Built-in GPS can be enabled allowing your recordings to have an exact GPS location stamped on the footage.
    • Loop Recording: Allows you to set the time duration of video clips.
    • Auto Recording: Allows you to set the dash cam to automatically record whenever its powered on. If off, the Power/Emergency Record button must be pressed to start recording.
    • G-Sensor Sensitivity: Determines how hard of an impact will be required to activate Emergency Recording. Levels range from 1-3 with 1 being the lightest impact force to trigger it.
    • Record Audio: A built-in microphone allows you to record audio along with video. This can be set for continual recording, emergency recordings only, or off.
    • Watermark: The current time/date, speed, GPS, and Driver ID can be set to be stamped on video clips, usually required when footage is used in an accident or traffic dispute.
    • Driver ID Watermark: This allows you to associate a Driver ID with the camera footage, such as a person's name or license plate number, which will be stamped on the footage as part of the watermark.
    • Motion Detection: This allows the camera to monitor movement around the camera (changes in light) which can be used to record activity around the vehicle when parked.
      • Note: For Motion Detection Mode to work, the camera will need to be connected to a constant power source via the optional Hardwire Kit (sold separately) or be plugged into an "always on" lighter socket using the connected radar detector's power cable.
    • Parking Mode: This mode lets the camera monitor for changes in its internal G-Sensor. If a bump, collision, or break-in triggers the G-Sensor, footage from the moment of impact will be saved.
      • Note: For Parking Mode to work, the camera will need to be connected to a constant power source via the optional Hardwire Kit (sold separately) or be plugged into an "always on" lighter socket using the connected radar detector's power cable.
    • Surveillance Auto Shutoff: If leaving your vehicle parked for more than 48 hours and the M2 is connected to constant power, this mode lets you set a time limit on Motion Detection and Parking Mode to avoid draining the battery.
    • Exposure Value: Lets you adjust the exposure value of the dash cam (default is 0.0). Positive number exposure values will make the image brighter, while negative numbers will make it darker.
    • WiFi : Built-in WiFi lets you access video clips and the settings menu from Android and iOS devices.

    Computer Connection: The M2 dash cam includes a Micro-B USB port on the side of the unit for connecting to a home computer. This lets you playback, edit, and save recorded video files. Supported video players include Microsoft Windows Media Player and Apple Quick Time.

    Mounting & Powering: The Escort M2 is specifically designed to mount directly to compatible Escort radar detectors. The dash cam includes a bracket for mounting it directly to the radar detector. An RJ-11 socket on the M2 allows the radar detector's power cable to plug into the camera, while a built-in 4" RJ-11 cable on the camera plugs into the radar detector, powering both devices from the radar detector's power cable. Some detectors are compatible, but require an optional StickyCup Mounting Bracket (sold separately).
