I got back last night from the Chicago area for a visit with my daughter and extended family. Sanj had invited me to meet up with a few Lotus Corps members attending a car show in North Chicago. As luck would have it it worked out that we had free time during the car show hours, so son Matt and I drove out to the car show to meet up with Sanj and the Herzog's that I had met 12 years ago at LOG 22. It was a great filler for the break in family events.

Also during the during the trip it was a good trial run for the Escort Live GPS radar detector system. While I was using the portable 9500 IX with Live and not the custom installed unit planned for the Esprit I was quite impressed. The Live Android networked version worked well automatically dropping pin marks on the map display as the Escort detector alerted of speed traps. It also worked well receiving pin drops on the map from other Live equipped radar detector (BEL & Escort). It alerted of threats over a mile away well before an actual radar detector alert and in one case alerted of a parked cruiser who had his radar off parked in the bushes waiting for an ambush. As I passed the cruiser I also pressed the manual pin drop to update the current time of sighting to warn other users as the pin drops do age and disappear off the map over time.
