Product Details

Escort PASSPORT 8500 X50 Blue Display Radar Detector - 8500X50BLUE

Hailed as the most revolutionary radar/laser detector ever. The Passport 8500 X50's new "V-Tuned" radar receiver provides extreme detection range on all police radar; conventional and "instant-on" radar, including the new POP mode radar threat, X-Band, and up to 50% more range than the original Passport 8500 on the all-important K and Ka bands. Digital signal processing (DSP) provides maximum range, with minimum false alarms.

    Comments about Escort PASSPORT 8500 X50 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.
