25443167432_9d71155d24_b.jpgUsers are also able to remotely arm and disarm the alert mode, pair additional key fobs, make changes to what notifications the CIS will send and to what mobile phone numbers and e-mail addresses the SMS/e-mail notifications are sent, and adjust a number of options to modify the CIS' functions.

Despite enjoying a 12 point lead in regards to the No. 2 Bayern Leverkusen, the Bundesliga solo leaders Borussia Dortmund don't have time to relax, and they proved it once again in match day 25 with a 1-0 home win over Colonia. Lewandowski scored the winning goal with one minute to go before halftime and his team reached 61 points.

Firstly, it knows how fast you're going. You can set, in a menu, an OSP Over Speed Alert, which is a maximum speed that you don't want to exceed. Drive more than a few miles per hour faster and the Max will beep and speak the words, "Reduce speed." This is a nice, proactive way to avoid tickets by simply not letting your speed get away from you.

One BV 222, V4, is said to have shot down a US Navy PB4Y Liberator of VB-105 (BU#63917) commanded by Lieutenant Evert, on October 22, 1943. Since the war this has often been mistakenly quoted as a BV 222 shooting down an Avro Lancaster.

View full gallery The SmartRadar hardware is aesthetically less elegant than the Cobra iRadar. Antuan Goodwin/CNET The bulky SmartRadar box isn't as slick-looking as, for example, the Cobra iRadar, but I didn't penalize the design score because this is a device that is designed to be mostly hidden behind the rear-view mirror and out of sight. Some drivers may enjoy the unit's function-over-form aesthetic.

The MobileTV accessory works with iPhones and iPads, letting them receive broadcast television signals from the Dyle television network.

With just the physical hardware alone, the Escort SmartRadar is already shaping up to be a fully competent radar detection setup. However, there's still the matter of the third piece of this system's puzzle: the Escort Live app. This app (free to download, but subscription-supported) installs on your Android phone or iPhone. After a short Bluetooth pairing process, the app is able to communicate bidirectionally with the SmartRadar hardware, connecting it to Escort's database of user-reported speed traps, police sightings, radar detections, and speed and red-light cameras. Whenever the SmartRadar detects speed-monitoring radar or lasers, it uploads the location and band detected to the Escort Live database. False alerts are also noted. Now, when you approach a red-light camera or a known speed trap, the SmartRadar unit can alert you before you even get there, displaying something like "K-BAND LIVE" and giving you more time to adjust your speed. The idea is that with the help of an army of other SmartRadar users, the Escort Live service effectively extends the detection range.

Free app required
By itself, the MobileTV accessory does not do anything, as it needs the IDTV app to show television broadcasts on an iOS device. This app is free from the App Store, and available for iPhone or iPad.

As the Walrus was stressed to a level suitable for catapult-launching, rather surprisingly for such an ungainly-looking machine, it could be looped and bunted. This was first done by the test pilot Joseph Summers, flying the prototype at the SBAC show at Hendon in June 1933; this feat surprised even R. J. Mitchell, who was amongst the spectators. However, in practice any water in the bilges would make its presence felt when the aircraft was inverted. This usually discouraged the pilot from any future aerobatics on this type.

Blackline GPS provides monitoring service for the Escort Entourage CIS via Web interface. While the Entourage CIS hardware forms the core of the Escort's GPS location system, Blackline GPS' online tracking software is where most of the user's interactions with the system take place. The Entourage is powered by position tracking by Blackline GPS and requires a $30 activation fee and a monthly service subscription of $15 per month (or $179 per year with no activation fee). Subscribers can monitor and control their Entourage over the Internet via a Google Maps-based Web site. The units can also be tracked on supported Blackberry phones via a free Blip Plus app.

Escort Passport Max 2 radar detector
When CNET editor Antuan Goodwin reviewed the Escort Passport Max radar detector in 2013, he was impressed by its detection capability but griped about the additional cost for Escort's SmartCord, needed to use the Escort Live Radar smartphone app. Escort Hamburg solves that problem with the Passport Max 2, integrating Bluetooth connectivity into this next-generation radar detector.
