Product Details

Escort Passport Max Radar Detector - PASSPORTMAX

Take Ticket Protection to the Max
The all-new PASSPORT Max, the first and only detector with High Definition (HD) Radar Performance, delivers breakthrough radar performance like no other. It covers all radar and laser bands and enables you to drive worry-free. The PASSPORT Max is like no other detector. Its refined styling is subtle, yet strong. Its performance is stunning, yet smart and intelligent. Together the PASSPORT Max raises the bar once again.

Fastest Response & Remarkable Accuracy
Our all-new receiver incorporates advanced military technology called Digital Signal Processing (DSP). This unique method of scanning enables the PASSPORT Max
to identify real threats faster and more accurately than
any other detector. Quicker response time means more advanced warning against instant on radar threats.

New Multi-Color OLED Display
The new multi-color graphic display is stunning. Brilliant new graphics illuminate intuitive icons that identify the type of threat at a glance. In addition, user-selectable backlit colors allow you to choose a color that works best with your vehicle's interior gauges. Please note that all displays using speed limit data are connected to ESCORT Live.

Intuitive Controls
The PASSPORT Max can be set up for your specific type of driving and personal preference. Our Preferences option allows you to change several options, including which radar bands you'd like to monitor and which meter you would like to see when a signal is detected. Regardless of how you drive, we've got you covered.

AutoLearn: Artificial Intelligence Protection
Intelligence is also packed into this ticket-protecting marvel. Our patented AutoLearn technology uses the
power of GPS and the exact frequency to learn and automatically reject unwanted door openers and other
fixed position false alarms. The result is the most accurate long-range protection in the industry and a permanent solution to false alarms.

DEFENDER® Database
Speed traps and camera locations are everywhere! We've addressed the increasing number of "safety" cameras installed throughout the U.S. and Canada by pre-loading the PASSPORT Max with our exclusive DEFENDER® Database of active red light and speed camera locations throughout North America. As you approach these locations, the MAX will alert you in advance, you can even add your own "hot spots"
using our exclusive Mark Location feature.

High-Performance Laser Protection
PASSPORT Max's multiple high-performance laser sensors
provide maximum laser warning, with superior off-axis protection. For the ultimate in laser protection add the optional ZR4 Laser Shifter

Variable Speed Sensitivity - On Demand Performance
Our patented GPS technology allows the detector to provide alerts based on what the vehicle is actually doing. At highway speeds you need the best long range sensitivity you can get. At slower speeds, the sensitivity can be adjusted to further reduce unneeded alerts, especially when you're not at risk. We've even changed the actual alert to a short double-tone when your vehicle is moving less than 20 mph.

Crystal-Clear Voice Alerts
PASSPORT's unique voice alerts provide clear communications for alerts and menu options. Now you can keep your eyes on the road without unnecessary distractions.

Traffic Sensor Rejection
The PASSPORT Max; includes our proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR) software to eliminate false alerts

Compatible with ESCORT Live
PASSPORT Max is compatible with ESCORT Live, our exclusive real-time ticket-protection network, which warns you of upcoming alerts received and reported by other users in the area, and gives you access to local speed limit data for over-speed alerts. (Requires Optional SmartCord Live and app subscription)

It does not seem possible, but the Escort MAX is even better than the 9500ix...!
It has:
1. Fewer false alarms.
2. Amazing long range radar coverage.
3. The GPS "sees" satellites better, and has far fewer signal dropouts. Also, I thought the large sticky cup mount would block the GPS signal, but that has not been the case.
The MAX is worth it's weight in gold, and pays for itself after one or two saves...!
My 9500ix NEVER let me down in over 4 years, and I am sure the MAX will be at least as reliable...!
Would you rather pay Courts and Lawyers your hard earned cash for supposed "safety" violations?
I see armored cars in front of my local courthouse twice a week picking up all the fines from those who drove without Escort protection.

I was excited about the release of the new Passport MAX & I'm sure I let my expectations get the best of me. I've been a little disappointed with its performance. An Escort customer/user for years I thought this would be a great time to "upgrade".
1. The performance of the detector itself seems great, but not necessarily any better from previous Escort detectors I've used.
2. The display space could be better utilized.
3. There needs to be an option to turn voice on/off for specific functions (over-speed vs radar warnings, etc.)
4. The radar detector was expensive enough, but with the additional cable for the Escort Live as well as purchasing the app (Escort didn't include 12 months free as advertised), this is an expensive investment.
5. The Escort Live app must be open and running so the detector will show speed limits.
6. The MAX shuts down if the temp is over about 80 degrees. Escort claims this is a built in safety feature. Really?? It mounts in the window...in the sun!

    The Passport MAX has every feature I wanted plus the continuous digital MPH reading on the device which I find extremely useful instead of having to read my dial type of speedometer. Digital readings are much better for accuracy especially for alerts.

    9500IX Users, Don't Waste Your Money on this "Upgrade"

    By 

    from Annapolis, MD, USA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar Detector:

    If you are a 9500IX owner #like I am# I don't think the cost to upgrade is worth it. The improvement to performance does not justify the cost in my opinion. If you do not own any device at all, then I 100% recommend the Passport Max. It is a great product. It just isn't THAT much better than the 9500IX in my opinion. I will be returning my Passport Max for the money back guarantee and continue using my 9500IX along with the Waze application on my phone.

    Great product, a few quirks

    By 

    from Houston, TX, USA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar Detector:

    The range of the device is great, but it would be nice to know from which direction the alert is coming. As far as radar detectors go, this one is top notch and performs well, but it's almost as though the designers are living in the past or else they don't use their own product to know it's quirks. If you mute an alarm, you cannot unmute it. The volume is loud for a couple alerts, then automatically gets quiet such that you can't hear it over a modest stereo (so it can be getting stronger while you can't hear it). The release button to remove it from the sticky cup is tucked so far back that I can't depress it without using both hands. The harness for the sticky cup makes noise on almost any road condition.
    Otherwise, it's a great product.

    Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar Detector:

    I bought this for my wife about 6 months ago. I liked hers so much that I then bought my own unit. This is a great detector, has great range and being able to block known false signals is huge. We have a motion detector stop light in our neighborhood that really played havoc on the X50, no more.
