Escort Black PASSPORT With Laser ShifterPro Sensors Radar Detector, Model 9500CIPRO

The PASSPORT 9500ci with all-new Laser ShifterPro sensors is the Mack-Daddy of all radar and laser detectors - For those who only want the best in their vehicle! It is the ultimate balance of long-range performance, intelligent signal processing, simple intuitive controls, and the best overall driving experience ever developed. With blistering all-band radar protection and all-new laser "shifting" technology, speeding tickets can be a thing of the past. ESCORT continues to lead the industry by incorporating its patented GPS technology that automatically identifies the source and location of all radar signals. Real threats are processed in less than a second, while false signals are learned and eliminated. Now all you have to do is drive!

The PASSPORT 9500ci is completely undetectable to all radar detector detectors, keeping you unseen and unnoticed. Crystal-Clear Voice Alerts, Speed Alert™, Safety Warning System and its stealth installation make the PASSPORT 9500ci the ultimate in discreet protection.

The PASSPORT 9500ci comes pre-loaded with our exclusive DEFENDER Database* of red light cameras, speed cameras and known speed traps throughout North America. You can also download updates, back up your data, and stay on top of new threats directly from our website. Now get expanded ticket protection with the award-winning ESCORT Live** - the ultimate live alert network.

Features:

Discreet Installation

  • The PASSPORT 9500ci with all-new ShifterPro sensors provides the ultimate in discreet operation. Included sensors are mounted in the front grill area of your vehicle (rear shifter optional). Interior control module and display are separated for multiple installation options. The result is no messy cords and no unwanted attention.

Breakthrough Radar Performance

  • PASSPORT's twin-antenna design sets a new standard for long-range protection. This patented design is completely undetectable, making it the perfect choice for those who like to run unnoticed. All North American radar bands are covered, including "POP" radar.

Laser Protection Like No Other

  • Our all-new laser "Shifters" provide 360 degree protection, including the latest "double-pulse" laser guns. Multiple sensors positioned front or rear can be programmed to "Shift" for maximum protection. ("Shifting" may not be legal in your area. Check local laws before activating.)

Variable-Speed Radar Performance

  • PASSPORT's AutoSensitivity mode varies radar sensitivity based on your vehicle's speed. The result is radar performance when needed most.

Mark Location

  • The PASSPORT 9500ci's "Mark Location" feature enables the customer to manually mark known speed traps, camera locations, or anything else worth noting. Once stored in its memory, the 9500ci will provide sufficient warning for all of these points of interest.

Adaptive Signal Processing

  • Our new Adaptive Signal Processing system uses GPS technology to automatically "learn" (by exact location and frequency) each radar signal and determine if it's a real threat or not. This data is updated real-time during your drive, and provides the most accurate alert system possible. The result is the most accurate long-range protection in the industry and a permanent solution to false alarms. You drive. It learns. End of story. Nothing could be easier.

Safety Camera Data

  • The PASSPORT 9500ci comes pre-loaded with our DEFENDER® Database - thousands of safety camera locations, including red light and speed-based cameras throughout North America. You can also download updates, back up your data, and stay on top of new threats directly from our website. The 9500ci comes complete with a 3 year Defender Database Subscription.

Web Ready

  • The PASSPORT 9500ci can be easily updated using your computer and the power of the internet. Simply go online to download our Detector Tools program, connect the 9500ci to either a PC or Mac with an active internet connection and then download the most up to date locations. You can even back up your data or update the detector's operating software, (firmware), if needed. The database is updated weekly, and Escort provides 3 years of downloadable updates for free.

DEFENDER® Database Subscriptions

  • After the included 3 year subscription expires, subscriptions are available to keep you up to date on future Speed Traps, Red Light Cameras and Speed Cameras.

High-Resolution Display

  • PASSPORT's miniature display provides a multitude of installation options, including an in-dash bezel (included) for that factory installed look. Easy-to-read alerts and access to user preferences are clearly visible at a glance.

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.

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 Black Laser ShifterPro Radar Detector:

This unit is a great unit. My radar head is installed on the roof of my minivan. :-D The range is absolutely insane! Magical....

The only drawback to the unit is due to it's exteme sensitivity if you need to run K band you will get some false alerts from Blind Spot Monitoring Systems in other cars. With TSR turned on however, this is very tolerable for me.

At this time I wouldn't be caught running anything else. And I do mean "caught" . lol

Comments about Escort Black Laser ShifterPro Radar Detector:

I have 3 cars now with this product in them. I have had a few false alarms but I haven't had a detector that didn't. I have had the laser detector go of when I was very close to a car in front of me other object in very close range. It is installed in a Porsche 4S turbo and the others are in Volvo SUVs. I wouldn't think of driving any of my vehicles without one. I have had dash mounted models stolen over the years but I do have one that I take on vacation when the need arises. All said and done, I am already looking at a new car and buying another 9500ci. I wish they gave discounts for multiple purchases.

      Comments about Escort Black Laser ShifterPro 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.

      Comments about Escort Black Laser ShifterPro 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!

      from Bakersfield, CA, USA

      Comments about Escort Black Laser ShifterPro 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 Black Laser ShifterPro 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.
