Introducing the all new PASSPORT 8500ci
The PASSPORT 8500ci - A Customer-Driven Installation Solution
The PASSPORT 8500ci was developed after months of consumer and dealer research that revealed a majority of radar users would prefer an integrated, affordable radar and laser detector which was very easy to install. With that kind of demand, our team of engineers went to work.
Introducing the PASSPORT 8500ci, a fully integrated, high performance radar and laser detector system. It offers the convenience of built-in discreet security yet installs in dramatically less time and with fewer components than all other integrated detection systems. The bottom line is significant cost savings over all other installed radar detectors and breakthrough pricing of $549.95 plus installation when you order direct from our ESCORT sales experts.
Installation Time Significantly Reduced
Most custom installed systems require a significant investment in time for installation, up to 6 hours depending on the level of customization and vehicle type. The PASSPORT 8500ci was designed to be installed quicker than any other custom installed radar detector unit on the market. You can do it yourself or contact us to learn more about our nationwide network of professionals offering worry-free affordable installation.

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.
