Passport 9500ci Breakdown

Ultimate custom-installed radar with all new Laser ShifterPro sensors.

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.

Radar Performance

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

Diagram of the Passport 9500ci system


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.

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.

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.

High-Resolution Display

PASSPORT's miniature display provides a multitude of installation options, including an in-dash bezel (included) for that factory installed look. Easy-to-read alerts and access to user preferences are clearly visible at a glance.

Safety Camera Data

The PASSPORT 9500ci comes pre-loaded with our DEFENDER® Database - thousands of safety camera locations, including red light and speed-based cameras throughout North America. You can also download updates, back up your data, and stay on top of new threats directly from our website. The 9500ci comes complete with a 3 year Defender Database Subscription.

The Best of ESCORT Live!

PASSPORT 9500ci is compatible with ESCORT Live, our award-winning app and 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.

(optional for $149.95)

Traffic Sensor Rejection

The PASSPORT 9500ci includes our proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR) software to eliminate false alerts.

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.
