AutoLearn uses GPS technology to automatically "learn" (by exact location and frequency) each radar signal and determine if it's a real threat or not. This data is updated real-time during your drive, and provides the most accurate alert system possible. The result is the most accurate long-range protection in the industry and a permanent solution to false alarms. You drive. It learns. End of story. Nothing could be easier.


A Windows Version of Detector Tools supports Firmware, Location Database Updates, Detector Software Updates and Defender Updates for the PASSPORT Max, PASSPORT 9500ix, PASSPORT 9500i, PASSPORT 9500ci, PASSPORT SC55, MAX Ci and iX Ci.

Installation Disclaimers:

• Some vehicles may require optional mounting brackets or additional labor due to the complexity of the vehicle. • Most European and exotic cars, Mercedes, Jaguar, Porsche, Audi just to name a few, enclose their engine compartments with additional noise suppression. This makes running wires and mounting units in these vehicles more difficult. • Mounting the interior control box behind a dash panel or altering it to fit in a certain area is considered a custom installation.
