ProClip, iPhone4S, Escort LIVE

So I've used V1 for years but since Savvy seems like a bust and I don't know when ESP is coming, I am anxious to give a full test of Escort LIVE. In one week, I start a trip that will cover over 3K miles.

I have tried to merge the ProClip device holder with the ProClip angled mount and something is missing. According to the instructions I should have a bracket with presets. Unfortunately I bought the pieces separately and didn't look at the stuff until today.

So is it likely that I am missing an important piece or does one actually drill holes into the angled mount in order to mount the device holder?

I have no idea, but I have been an Escort fan for over a decade (I currently have three of them). I was thinking of giving Escort a call to do a review of the new LIVE, but I don't see how it will work unless THOUSANDS of others are actively using it. Looks gimmicky to me.

If you would scan some of the threads on the office Escort forum, it is possible you might find ways to benefit from LIVE. I've already purchased LIVE and just want to mount my iPhone so I get the full benefit of the LIVE data.

Please send me a link. I don't have time to look.

Thanks!

I don't know which thread would mean the most to you so look at this special section on LIVE: http://escortradarforum.com/forums/f...splay.php?f=46
