Las Vegas, NV November 4, 2014 - ESCORT Inc.

“We return to SEMA with the detector category's most innovative advances...”

Bluetooth-equipped, the PASSPORT Max2™ (retail $599.95) detects signals at record test-setting range using ESCORT's patented digital signal processing technology (SEMA 2013 'Best New Product', the original PASSPORT Max™). The PASSPORT Max2™ also features dual language audible voice alerts (English or Spanish) and a multi-color graphics display.

The new PASSPORT™ (retail $349.95) with best-in-class detection performance, is also Bluetooth-equipped and includes voice alerts in English or Spanish and a multi-color graphics display.

The Bluetooth®-equipped detectors connect to the ESCORT Live™ ticket protection app. The ESCORT Live™ app, winner of the prestigious 'Best New Product' award at SEMA 2011, debuts Air Patrol Alerts (to identify aircraft speed monitoring areas) and Intelligent Speed Trap Alerts (prioritize alerts based on the most recent and total number of recorded detections).

ESCORT is also introducing program enhancements to its PASSPORT 9500ci™ custom-installed radar and laser defense system. Program changes, announced here at SEMA, include extending product warranty to three years and the introduction of a new 'ticket protection guarantee' program.
