Description Freqently Asked Questions

The WORLDS BEST Radar Detector!

Both the Passport Max and Max2 are built on Escort’s M5 platform, sharing Radar Roy’s coveted 5 Star rating.

What sets the Passport Max apart from the Max2 is that the Max2 comes with an internal Bluetooth chip-set already built into the detector. Because of this, you will save $50 by purchasing the Max2 if you are planning on purchasing the external Bluetooth module.

Extreme Range Radar Detector Protection

Passport Max Filtering

The Max’s M5 design incorporates Digital Signal Processing (DSP), which was developed by the US Military and NASA, so it can extract data from even the weakest radio transmissions.

This technology, now adopted by Escort in their M5 design, enables the Max to scan for threats by focusing on the DNA signature of police radar transmissions while rejecting other background noise.

The result is:

Fastest Response: Milliseconds count during an instant on ambush, and because of the Max’s “faster than the blink of an eye” alerts you get more time to react.

Longest Range: Its 8 plus capture distance is the furthest Radar Roy has ever recorded!

Best Filtering: Escort coupled their DSP technology with their AutoLearn technology, which allows the Max to reject more false signals than any other detector.

You will be warned well in advance of any fixed photo radar or red light camera along your path because of the Max’s built in GPS, and Escort's Defender database, which covers all of North America.

AutoLearn False Alert Blocking

Escort’s AutoLearn technology, coupled with the internal GPS of the Max, enables it to BLOCK false alert locations by storing the exact frequency and location of the offending device.

You can also use this feature to manually lock out false alert locations or mark a location as a speed trap for future reference.

Multi-Color OLED Display

The Escort Max's multi colored graphic OLED display makes it easy for you to identify threats by their unique icons, even while driving in bright sunlight.

You can also change the brightness and color of the display to match with the color of your car's gauges.

Radar Tools

Online Firmware and Safety Camera Updates

You can easily keep your Max updated with the newest firmware and safety camera databases through Escort’s Detector Tools software by connecting your detector to a USB port on your computer.

Confused, But Satisfied. June 29, 2014
Reviewer: Carl Woessner from Centerville, OH United States  
The product is great, but the shipping was confusing after receiving two tracking 2 numbers.  But everything worked just fine and I am a happy camper.

The wind shield mount is much improved from the typical suction cups and only time will tell if it's a better method. After only a few days use it would appear to be more than adequate.

this is the best detector i ever owned April 17, 2014
Reviewer: Brett from Chicago IL  
I haven't owned a radar detector since college which was back in the 90's. The Tech. has come along way with GPS and live police alerts. I drive around 1500 mile per week around the whole state of FL and South GA. I've been using the Escort Max and the Escort live police alerts app on my iphone now for a month. At first I was hesitant to speed over 10 MPH because I don't believe everything I read.
