A quiet ride that can save your bacon.

Let me say that if you are looking for ultra long range radar detection you will be better served by the Passport MAX, or even better yet....the Escort RedLine.

Let me say that if you are looking for ultra long range radar detection you will be better served by the Passport MAX, or even better yet....the Escort RedLine.

However, if you drive in areas where false alerts to door sensors or vehicle collision warning systems drive you nuts, the new Passport could be your best friend. This is a very false resistant detector even without the EscortLive functions engaged.

I enjoyed the ability to link to EscortLive through the built in Bluetooth and receive Live alerts while playing my favorite music without the need for additional adapters. A big plus for the new Passport.

A handsome detector, well built and well designed....quiet, but has adequate range to get the job done. See my attached video for an example of it's radar detection performance .

    Comments about Escort Passport:

    The detector works great. Best ESCORT ever had. I started out wit the original CINCINNATI MICROWAVE Escort X & K band unit. You could stack two of these new Passports, then stack another two beside the first two and that is about the size of my original. Earlier 7500 or whatever it is, is still at work but this newest model is best ever. The signal capture audible notification gets your attention without any annoyance. The display is large, bright and crisp. Not to mention handsome. Or pretty. Take your pick. I rate this detector excellent but am not rating Escort Live App. Downloaded it and read the agreement, and did not agree. It pretty much reads that my information is freely provided to everybody in the galaxy. I was very disappointed as this was a feature, and a reason why I bought this detector. I am therefore rating the detector on it's merits only and for that, it is excellent! Without scientific measurement, I would say its in town detection capability is nearly as good as my VALENTINE 1 and that is saying a lot. I have not been in a position to detect from a long range on the highway yet. But the audio and visual indications are the very best on this Passport.

        My brother has the Max 2, its great but for 500+ bucks I decided I would stick with this one. Its worked great and picks up cops about two miles away. Worth every dollar.

        Stealthy Look With Great Performance and Features

        Verified Buyer
        Site Member

        Comments about Escort Passport:

        The New Passport works flawlessly with Escort Live and my Droid GALAXY S4:
        The EL "Auto Start" function is nice
        PSL works exactly like my Garmin GPS - very accurate
        Lockout function works as advertised - a very quiet detector
        The RD Settings menu is easy to use and includes Ka segmentation settings - very cool

        The New Passport:
        Stealthy (no bright work to attract thiefs)
        Solid construction (even though it is built very lite)
        Comes with a Free 2-Year Product Warranty for "early" buyers
        Crystal clear voice warnings
        Tactile feel to all buttons
        Plenty of volume
        Performance on par with my SmartRadar (Both Radar and LiDAR)
        Absolutely the best looking RD I have ever owned - I love that all BAD BLACK look! (I know, subjective)

        So as you can see I absolutely love my New Passport. The display, however, could be a bit brighter

        Comments about Escort Passport:

        I've only had this detector for a little over a month, but so far I have been very pleased. This doesn't false on some of the new cars like my much older passport detector was. I have no issues so far, and can't think of anything that I would change. I'm going to buy my wife one for a X-Mas present to replace her old passport like I did.

        So went from Ohio to Missouri and back - and it was very accurate - it was so quiet sometimes i wonder if it was working - then short time later boom i get a hit. Yes off axis its not the best but its a very good RD for the money no doubt - The Bluetooth rocks with my phone and Escort live.

        Comments about Escort Passport:

        I use the Redline Daily - My wife uses the Smart Radar, and my son the Max - I had to try the new Passport and have been driving with it for the last 2 weeks -I have to say with BS and RDR off on the Passport - This M4 antenna blows the 9500ix away in my opinion - I will also say that the off axis is improved as far as the unit im using - I have had several encounters that really impressed me on off axis and instant on with this new Passport - ( not compared to the redline but to all other M4 designs ) -I was traveling down the interstate and started getting a 34.7 alert - was really 34.696 but whatever - after about a mile I exited and took a right - about half amile down on my far left were 2 cops way far in the back of a QT chatting it up. This blew my mind that an M4 could have this off axis detection - now of course I am only Running laser and Ka Seg - 1, 3 and 4 with RDR off - but still amazed me - I have nicknamed he Little Giant. for sure the best M4 in Our Family Arsenal.
