I drive a 2007 Porsche 977 Turbo as a daily driver - rain or shine. I drive on highways, toll roads, and county roads in urban and suburban areas. Having owned Escort products since they were first available in the late '70's I can truly say that this detector is worth the money. It has a perfect record of shifting laser atacks. K-band detection is speed-sensitive if you want it to be. The readout is clear and controls easy to operate once you learn them. Perhaps one of the best features is the learning function which memorizes false alarms after 3 passes. If a new radar signal is encountered that doesn't match the memorized alarms, it will re-alert you. Photo radar updates are also a great feature.

I'm keeping this short. This is a great radar detector. You can't go wrong with this except price. The Beltronics Stir Plus (I believe Bel is owned by Escort now) is identical except it has a red display and the Escort is blue. At $1300 vs $2000, there's no question the Stir Plus is the way to go. Do your own research. Search for a comparison of the two.

Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

Installing the radar detector is not an easy chore and I don't like hiring this kind of work out because too many "techs" do hack jobs. I have had to send in the unit numerous times and worst, I've had to send in various components which have died, namely the display, the front shifters, the GPS antenna, the rear shifter and the interface. Oh wait, that's ever component of the unit. Uninstalling these components is a major PAIN and then once you get them back, you get the please of reinstalling them. If the hardware and components were of better quality and were designed for a life span of 10-15 years, I'd maybe consider buying this again. The fact is, the components are not built well. The front shifters have died on me twice and was told that it's because I live in a cold climate. Umm.... nowhere in the instructions did it say not to use this in freezing climates. One of the suggested preventative measures the technical support people told me to do is put packing tape on the joints of the components where they snap together. HA! Really? Packing tape? How about making a product that is fully enclosed and weather proof or nema rated. IT's great when it works but an absolute NIGHTMARE when it doesn't.

      Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

      I purchased this product after owning other Escort window mounted dectectors. Based on othe amount paid I would suggest that people don't purchase the item. I have had it replaced once as it continued to give false alarms, go off randomly and missed radar traps. The replacement does exactly the same thing only worse and there is nothing that anyone can do. I have had updates done by the Porsche dealer and they have told me that they can't do anything. I reached out to Escort and they told me I had to deal with the installer. Basically stated, I wouldn't recommend purchasing because of issues, cost and lack of support.

      Hands down the best detector on the market!

      Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

      This is by far the most sensitive detector I have ever used. The performance of this detector is second to none and the only thing even close is the Redline. But once you add in the Laser Shifter Pro integration and GPS capability there is just no comparison to anything else on the market. I highly recommend the 9500CI!

      Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

      Why does my LASOR alarm go off with no CHP or speed traps around

      I think Passport Escort says this 9500ci is the best Detector made. But it seems they nickel and penny me to death to get this Great 9500ci to have all the goodies which should have come with a $2500.00 Detector..
      other than the Lasor going off when no speed trap or CHP is around . This 9500ci works great . And the price I could agree with if it came with everything most of Passport Escort's lower cost Detectors..

      Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

      I have had my 9500CI for more than ten years now and it is currently in my 2008 BMW Alpina B7. My biggest complaint is the false laser alerts. I can be crossing the desert with nothing around and the laser will go off, sometimes front and other times rear. I have called ESCORT numerous times and they have no answers. I can only hope that they can improve on it over time.

      All three of my cars have the 9500Ci installed (2 3 Series and a 911).My previous 4 or 5 cars have also had the installed version of the Passport.
      I cannot judge other detectors but the 9500Ci is a necessity if you want to keep your license.

      Seems expensive at first, but has paid me back in spades.

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

      I'm always leading the pack and driving faster than anyone else on the road in my 2010 BMW M5. This radar detector has literally saved me from reasonable tickets, but also the ridiculous (over 100 mph). In fact, it saved me four times driving from Lake Tahoe to the San Francisco. The people trying to keep up with me cruised right by me, immediately after I received the Ka band signal and subsequently pulled into the right lane and brought the speed down to less than 70 mph. Each of the four times this happened, the cars trying to keep up and eventually passed me, ended up getting pulled over. You would think they would notice the change in speed and take heed to my caution, but no such luck on their part.

      This unit has provided me with piece of mind and given me the opportunity to really enjoy my "asphalt" thirsty BMW 550. Bought the unit and the car 1 year ago and had the dealership install it ( installation was as much as the unit.....but covered by the BMW warranty)

      You have one life....live it! get this unit and enjoy driving, unless you are into horse drawn wagons.
