Escort X80 Radar Detector Review

The Escort X80 is ranked in our top 10 most popular Windshield Mounted Radar Detector rankings

Overview of the Escort X80 Escort X80 review summary:

  • The Escort X80 radar detector supercedes both Escort Passport X70 and Escort Passport.
  • 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
  • New Bluetooth Chipset for easier smartphone pairing and Escort Live! support
  • Clear digital voice alerts in English and Spanish

Advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP)

When investing in a 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 detector, an important consideration is its ability to detect instant on miles away.

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 detectors constantly false alert.

Because of this Escort developed a new digital signal processing (DSP) algorithm.

This enables the Escort X80 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 Escort X80 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 X80 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.

3 of 5 Good product but... October 30, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Cocoa, FL United States  
The Escort X80 is a good product but in order to get full use of all its capabilities you must pay a yearly fee for their app, and then their app is only as reliable as how many others out there are also using the app.  Found it to be to much for me on top of the cost of the detector.

5 of 5 I am ordering but hope this helps, now September 16, 2017
Reviewer: Marty from Florida  
Someone broke in/stole my Passport last month. Now looking for one, they are around but found that they have it again but updated. IF this is truly the same but updated, perfect for me! I am ur basic ten over-speeder and the ol Pass worked great for me. With the app/Escort live, PERFECT! Sad to hear Escort is giving BIG BOX stors pref. treatment, though. So, I hope this helps...I review after purchase too. Miss you R R! Rest well. -Marty
