I have Escort’s “Passport iQ” combined radar detector/GPS unit in my car. Never leave home without it.
I have signed up for the 3-year subscription package, where I can update the detector’s map database using the Internet (and their “Escort Detector Tools” software on my laptop). The Internet update covers new speed cameras, new red light cameras, etc.
The State of Illinois, where I live, almost always is included in the emails I get, informing me of the latest database update. This more so than any other state.
What exactly is going on in the State of Illinois? Oh, wait… Illinois is cash-strapped (actually bankrupt), as are many counties and municipalities (e.g. Chicago). Gotta raise government revenues somehow….
