    Discreet Installation
    The PASSPORT 9500ci with all-new ShifterPro sensors provides the ultimate in discreet operation. Included sensors are mounted in the front grill area of your vehicle (rear shifters optional). Interior control module and display are separated for multiple installation options. The result is no messy cords and no unwanted attention.

    Breakthrough Radar Performance
    PASSPORT's twin-antenna design sets a new standard for long-range protection. This patented design is completely undetectable, making it the perfect choice for those who like to run unnoticed. All North American radar bands are covered, including "POP" radar.

    Laser Protection Like No Other
    Our all-new laser "Shifters" provide 360 degree protection (with optional rear shifters), including the latest "double-pulse" laser guns. Multiple sensors positioned front or rear can be programmed to "Shift" for maximum protection. "Shifting" may not be legal in your area. Check local laws before activating.

    Variable-Speed Radar Performance
    PASSPORT's AutoSensitivity mode varies radar sensitivity based on your vehicle's speed. The result is radar performance when needed most.

    Defender Mark Location
    The PASSPORT 9500ci's "Mark Location" feature enables the customer to manually mark known speed traps, camera locations, or anything else worth noting. Once stored in its memory, the 9500ci will provide sufficient warning for all of these points of interest.

    Adaptive Signal Processing
    Our new Adaptive Signal Processing system 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.

    *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.
