    The PASSPORT Max Includes

    Defender Take Ticket Protection to the Max
    The all-new PASSPORT Max, the first and only detector with High Definition (HD) Radar Performance, delivers breakthrough radar performance like no other. It covers all radar and laser bands and enables you to drive worry-free. The PASSPORT Max is the best radar detector. Its refined styling is subtle, yet strong. Its performance is stunning, yet smart and intelligent. Together the PASSPORT Max raises the bar once again.

    Fastest Response & Remarkable Accuracy
    Our all-new receiver incorporates advanced military technology called Digital Signal Processing (DSP). This unique method of scanning enables the PASSPORT Max
    to identify real threats faster and more accurately than
    any other detector. Quicker response time means more advanced warning against instant on radar threats.

    In addition to providing lightning fast response, the PASSPORT Max also looks for a signature or the DNA of
    the signal and sorts out the real threats from a myriad
    of other signals with precision. The result is a quiet experience in a world of noise.

    GPS Powered

    new multi-color graphic display

    New Multi-Color OLED Display
    The new multi-color graphic display is stunning. Brilliant new graphics illuminate intuitive icons that identify the type of threat at a glance. In addition, user-selectable backlit colors allow you to choose a color that works best with your vehicle's interior gauges. Please note that all displays using speed limit data are connected to ESCORT Live.

    Intuitive Controls
    The PASSPORT Max can be set up for your specific type of driving and personal preference. Our Preferences option allows you to change several options, including which radar bands you'd like to monitor and which meter you would like to see when a signal is detected. Regardless of how you drive, we've got you covered.

    AutoLearn: Artificial Intelligence Protection
    Intelligence is also packed into this ticket-protecting
    marvel. Our patented AutoLearn technology uses the
    power of GPS and the exact frequency to learn and automatically reject unwanted door openers and other
    fixed position false alarms. The result is the most
    accurate long-range protection in the industry and a
    permanent solution to false alarms.

    GPS Powered


    DEFENDER® Database
    Speed traps and camera locations are everywhere! We've addressed the increasing number of "safety" cameras installed throughout the U.S. and Canada by pre-loading the PASSPORT Max with our exclusive DEFENDER® Database of active red light and speed camera locations throughout North America. As you approach these locations, the MAX will alert you in advance, you can even add your own "hot spots"
    using our exclusive Mark Location feature.

    Web Ready
    Weekly updates are available via the ESCORT website to keep you up-to-date with the latest changes in North America. Simply go online to download our Detector Tools program, connect the MAX to a PC with an active internet connection and then download the most up to date locations. You can even back up your data or update the detector's operating software, (firmware), if needed. Not compatible with Mac at this time.
    GPS Powered

    Defender DEFENDER® Database Subscriptions
    DEFENDER® Database Subscriptions are available to keep you up to date on future Speed Traps, Red Light Cameras and Speed Cameras.

    High-Performance Laser Protection
    PASSPORT Max's multiple high-performance laser sensors
    provide maximum laser warning, with superior off-axis protection. For the ultimate in laser protection add the optional Laser ShifterPro.

    GPS Powered

    Variable Speed Sensitivity - On Demand Performance
    Our patented GPS technology allows the detector to provide alerts based on what the vehicle is actually doing. At highway speeds you need the best long range sensitivity you can get. At slower speeds, the sensitivity can be adjusted to further reduce unneeded alerts, especially when you're not at risk. We've even changed the actual alert to a short double-tone when your vehicle is moving less than 20 mph.

    Crystal-Clear Voice Alerts
    PASSPORT's unique voice alerts provide clear communications for alerts and menu options. Now you can keep your eyes on the road without unnecessary distractions.

    Traffic Sensor Rejection
    The PASSPORT Max; includes our proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR) software to eliminate false alerts. Click here to learn more about TSR

    Compatible with ESCORT Live
    PASSPORT Max is compatible with ESCORT Live, our exclusive real-time ticket-protection network, which warns you of upcoming alerts received and reported by other users in the area, and gives you access to local speed limit data for over-speed alerts. (Requires Optional SmartCord Live and app subscription)

    Speed Measurement Laboratories Inc.
    "In 30 years of impartial testing, we haven't seen the astoundingly accurate reporting range or the immediacy of alert by any other radar detector."

    Radar Roy
    "I feel this is the best radar detector ever made..."
    "Wow - insatiable range and immediate alerts."

    Mike C, aka Nine_c1 on forums
    "This thing is SMOKING HOT on response times! So far the digital here has really impressed me with around the bend, over the hill, forward facing and detections from behind. It looks like it's got it all together picking up the weak signals out of the weeds."


    What is included with the Max?
    The PASSPORT Max comes complete with a soft-sided travel case, new "Sticky Cup" windshield mount, 12-volt SmartCord® and quick reference guide. If you would like a more permanent installation for your PASSPORT Max, check out the DirectWire SmartCord® or the more basic DirectWire kit for hardwired installations.

    What is AutoLearn?
    Autolearn uses the GPS feature to identify sources of false radar and memorizes location and frequency of each radar signal. Our AutoLearn software then compares signals received over time and eliminates audio alerts for non-police sources. The display will identify that a signal is present but no audio alert will be sounded. If a new source of radar or laser appears in the area you will receive a full audio and visual alert.

    Will AutoLearn block out true police signals?
    No. The sophisticated software will prevent automatically blocking out true police signals.

    What is the Defender database?
    Defender is a database of North American red light and fixed speed camera locations that can be updated weekly from our site.

    What is the USB port for?
    The PASSPORT Max is web ready and the USB port can connect to a PC for software downloads and Defender updates.

    What is Variable Speed Sensitivity?
    We recognize if you are driving at slower rates of speed that you do not need full sensitivity. The PASSPORT Max is able to increase sensitivity as your traveling speed increases.

    Can it be used overseas?
    We do not monitor frequencies used overseas, but many customers travel abroad with their PASSPORT.

    How do you Mark a location?
    To mark a particular location, press the "MRK" button. The display will read: "Mark?" Press the "MRK" button again to assign a label to it. There are four (4) labels: Red Light, Speed Camera, Speed Trap and Other. To scroll through the labels, simply press the volume (+) or (-) buttons until you reach the desired label. Once you've selected the label, press the "MRK" button again to confirm.

    How do you block a false alert?
    To lockout a false alert, (X, K or Laser only) press the mute button three (3) times, (either on the detector or the SmartCord®) during the alert. Pressing the mute button the first time will silence the audio. Pressing it a second time will generate a prompt on the display that will read: "Lockout?" Press it a third time to confirm that you want to lock this signal out by location and frequency. A "Stored" message will be displayed.

    What is Expert Mode?
    Expert Mode will show you up to 8 radar signals at the same time and will show relative signal strength and associated Band of each signal.

    Where are they illegal?
    Radar detectors are completely legal to use in non-commercial vehicles in 49 states. Virginia and Washington D.C. are the only places in the United States that currently ban radar detectors. Radar detector use in commercial vehicles has been prohibited in the U.S. since 1995 and radar detectors are also illegal in most Canadian provinces. We do not track detector regulations in other countries.

    Do you pay for tickets?
    Escort Inc. does not condone breaking posted speed limits and has never offered to reimburse speeding citations issued when using our products.

    What is the warranty period?
    All our products ordered factory direct come with a full one-year factory warranty. We also offer an Extended Service Plan on select models that will provide two additional years of warranty for $29.95.

    I have GPS in my car. Why do I need it in my detector?
    The GPS feature is not used for navigation. The PASSPORT Max allows you to Mark locations of interest, Block false radar and laser alerts, tracks vehicle speed in real-time, and allows sensitivity based on the vehicle speed.

    Why do I have to pay for updates?
    Due to the increasing use of red light and fixed speed cameras in the US, the locations and operation status of these devices change all the time. This database is collected from a number of sources. There is a very small annual charge for customers that want to keep the Defender database current for camera threats.

    What is the Defender Database memory capability in the Max? Will it run out of space?
    The PASSPORT Max has more than enough memory to hold all your locations as well as the camera locations used in the US.
