I just purchased a Beltronics Pro 300 off ebay for 63 bucks for nostalgia. I saw that it was escort live compatible if I purchase the live smart cord. Does anyone know if that will allow me to have GPS lock outs on the pro 300 when running live with my smart phone? I know this was possible in the Redline original, but I didn't know if it was possible in the pro 300 since it is such an old detector. I really don't care about the defender database and the escort live commmunity reporting since no one else uses escort live in rural Idaho, but I would love gps lock outs via Live. Also would the escort live driven lockouts be auto lock outs ( after going past the same k band frequency 3 times) or would they be manual lock outs?

The older module does work on Bel 300, the Live cord may ask to update the detector if it doesn't have latest firmware. Manual lockouts only.

Live always seemed to have issues for me but I think it was the poor Live programming for Android, supposedly it's better now but I haven't used it lately enough to verify.

Do you know if this escort live smart cord would work on the pro 300? Also if it tells you to update the firmware, is it something I have to send the Pro 300 back to Escort for or are firmware updates possible through escort live? I run escort live in my Max IIs on android and it works well with no glitches, I am hoping for the same on the Pro 300.

The Live module will update for you, no need to send it in.

I am not familiar with that BT module, I would ask to make sure, I would think so but I am not sure if they made changes - I always used the hardwire module...
