Description

Take Ticket Protection to the Max

 

The all-new Escort PASSPORT Max Radar Detector, 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.

 

In addition to providing lightning fast response, the PASSPORT Max also looks for a signature or the DNA of the signal and sorts out the real threats from a myriad of other signals with precision. The result is a quiet experience in a world of noise.

 

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.

 


Web Ready
Weekly updates are available via the ESCORT website to keep you up-to-date with the latest changes in North America. Simply go online to download our Detector Tools program, connect the MAX to a PC 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. Not compatible with Mac at this time.

 


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)

    Escort Passport MAX "Issues"

    By Marc

    from NY Tri-State Area

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • City Driving

        Comments about Escort PASSPORT Max Radar Detector:

        Better on paper than in fact. Escort Passport MAX "Issues", per discussions with Escort Tech: The speed indicator is 3-6 mi off, depending on the car driven. Can't be retuned, as its tied to the GPS. the speaker isn't really loud enough (open window, normal music use, AC on high, etc.) so you need to Google a 3rd party to get a "stereo speaker" that will attach to the MAX's audio jack. if you buy the $30 item at escort, you need to plug it in separately to a cig lighter 12 V receptacle, if you have a spare. the range is somewhat better on the Redline. If you opt for the redline, you don't get the red light cam, trap and self learning built in, but must rely on Escort live for a price (after yr 1).

        this unit cannot detect fixed speed trap camera at all. I just knew that there was a speed trap camera in that location after I was sent speeding citation x2.
