Escort Passport X70 Radar Detector Review

The Escort Passport X70 is ranked our 5th Most Popular Windshield Mounted Radar Detector

Overview of the Escort Passport X70

Escort Passport X70 review summary:

  • Programmed with Escort’s newest digital signal processing algorithm (DSP)
  • Over 4-times the range of a police radar gun
  • The ability to filter out many of the false alerts caused by the anti-collision sensors installed in new cars today
  • High definition OLED display
  • Clear digital voice alerts in English and Spanish

Advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP)

When investing in a radar detector two of your biggest concerns is the detector’s ability to sniff out real police radar threats and its ability to filter out false alerts, here is why.

Police departments across the world are now in the process of updating their equipment to the new, low power battery operated hand held digital radar guns.

All of these types of radar guns are instant on, meaning that they do NOT transmit any radar signal until the officer has a target vehicle in sight and presses the trigger.

Because of this when you select your radar detector, an important consideration is its ability to detect instant on miles away.

“The Escort Passport X70 uses a new type of digital signal processing (DSP), which can reduce false alarms from some non-police-radar sources. Think of DSP as a pair of Bose noise-canceling headphones for radar reporting. By reliably identifying noise, the Max can focus on real police-radar threats, leading to faster and more accurate warnings.” - Car and Driver Magazine

Then another problem, the anti-collision sensors that are being installed in most new cars today.

These sensors operate on the same K-Band frequency that police use and because of this most radar detectors constantly false alert.

Because of this Escort developed a new digital signal processing (DSP) algorithm for the Escort Passport X70 detector.

This enables the Passport X70 to sniff out and alert to these low power radar guns at over 4 times their capture distance, while also having the ability to block out many of those annoying false alerts.

High Definition OLED Display

The Passport X70 has a programmable easy to read multicolored OLED display, which includes intuitive icons, to make it easy to identify threats.

Additional display features include:

  • Cruise Alert – warning you when you’re exceeding the posted speed limit
  • Bar Graph – identifying the signal strength of the threat
  • Expert Meter – identifies up to 8 multiple alerts with signal strength at once
  • SpecDisplay – identifies the actual numeric frequency of the radar signal
  • 5 levels of brightness including full dark mode

Clear Audible Voice Alerts English/Spanish

The Escort Passport X70 has easy to understand voice alerts, which warns you in either English or Spanish of approaching threats, enabling you to keep your eyes on the road and not on your detector.

User Preferences Programming

You can access the advanced programming features of your Passport either by pressing the buttons on your detector, or though your smartphone enabling you to:

  • Sensitivity – City, Highway, Auto, AutoNoX

  • Windshield Mount
  • 12 volt smart cord
  • Travel Case
  • Getting Started Guide instruction booklet

Additional Accessories

  • Basic Direct wire

Warranty & Support

Your Passport comes with Escort’s 1-year warranty and our 30-day no risk money back guarantee.

Also, because we have been an authorized Escort dealer since 1995, you’re pre-approved to purchase Escort’s extended 24 month extend warranty for only $29.95.

Motorcycle Use and Accessories

When accessorized with the proper motorcycle mount, external warning device, and weather protection the Passport becomes one of the best radar detectors for your motorcycle.

Motorcycle Mounting Systems: RadarBusters offers a variety of motorcycle radar detector and cell phone mounts by Techmount, which will fit virtually any motorcycle.

External Warning Devices: The Max does have an external earphone jack, which you can plug into your motorcycle sound system. However, we would recommend the Legal Speeding HARD system, which is a wireless heads up display.

Weather Protection: There are several websites that sell “motorcycle radar detector boxes,” but we don’t recommend them. Instead, go to your local CVS and buy a child’s size shower cap. It’s cheaper and will protect your detector just as well.

Why Buy from RadarBusters?

Authorized Escort Dealer: RadarBusters has been an authorized dealer for Escort since 1995, so you can be assured that you detector is covered under Escort’s warranty program and pre-approved for Escort’s 24 month extended warranty program.

Real Reviews: Unlike the other radar detector review websites out there, Radar Roy is a retired cop and certified traffic radar instructor with over 40 years of experience and has his own arsenal of police radar and laser guns. Luxury Automotive was so impressed with Roy’s high standards and qualifications that they dubbed him the “General Schwarzkopf of radar detectors”.

No Sales Tax: You will not be charged sales tax as long as your order is shipped outside of Arizona.


The X70 is the best entry level detector which will help you avoid expensive speeding tickets, and it will enable you to become a more aware and safe driver.

When ordered from RadarBusters your X70 will arrive at your doorstep with everything you need along with personal 1-on-1 support which is just a phone call or email away.

5 of 5 purchase and customer service June 26, 2016
Reviewer: william freshwater from valencia, PA United States  
my experience with radar busters was second to none. The purchase was handled very quickly. Customer service was easy to deal with on an issue I had pertaining to the live cord. They had me up and working in no time. I like how all the reviews let you cut thru the bull and get to a detector that actually works !

5 of 5 The passport February 3, 2016
Reviewer: Donny Knoop from Longview, TX United States  
I had an outdated 8500 and was looking for a mere version. After looking at several videos on you tube I came across radar busters. One thing that stuck out to me was how much info I learned from radar Roy and this website. For that reason I gladly purchased my new passport and is already saved me several times in one week. Thank you radar busters!

5 of 5 New Escort Passport 2016 January 25, 2016
Reviewer: Shawn Dodd from webb city, MO United States  
The web site is very educational and informative. After doing a considerable amount of research I chose the New Escort Passport. My decision was made because of the price point and the technology linking my cellphone to the network (Very Cool), also the tech to minimize false alerts and get long range warnings. The purchase was easy and straightforward, Thanks to the discount for being a VIP member the price was even better than expected, excellent follow up with shipping, tracking ect., fast shipping too.

*** I own my own business and drive anywhere from 500 to 1000 miles a week, this thing saved my A$$ 5 times in the first week I got it.  I paid in excess of $800.00 in legal fee's and fines last year alone to keep the points off my license and insurance fee' down.

Worth Every Penny, Thanks Roy!!

4 of 5 Review thus far January 17, 2016
Reviewer: Mad matt from Blue Jay , CA United States  
Just picked up passport radar detector. Unboxed mounted on way home. Have yet to experience its functionality. Seems cool. I'd like to acquire some other configuration of power cord. As stretching from cig lighter to windshield base isn't ideal. I'll need to custom mount and wire it. On my dirt road the device was bouncing all over. Which don't need on dirt anyway,but.. I like the feature of unclipping from suction cups. Seems fairly solid. Way to soon to give any real feedback on the functionality and quality. All in all thus far I feel this company to be pro and will likely be back for more goods.
