Product Details

Escort Passport 8500ci Radar/Laser Detector System - 8500CI

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.

Key Features:

  • 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.
  • Extreme Radar Protection
    The new PASSPORT 8500ci radar detection system offers the award winning performance you have come to expect from Escort.
  • 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.
