      Comments about Escort PASSPORT Blue Display Radar Detector:

      We have purchased three units so far because of the accuracy of the notices. Our oldest son requested one for his newly restored '68 Chevelle. He has used our other units in the past and was amazed at the many detections and high rate of accuracy.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Our unit arrived in perfect condition and very timely. We were very pleased with how quickly we received it.
