A smart comination


I have put off buying one of these until they went on sale because it is so expensive, but finally pulled the trigger. I had bought my brother their top of the line radar detector, which had GPS in it to mark "false positives," and thought that this is...

Nav system and radar detector in one package

Short power cord for a truck

Fantastic Radar Detector/GPS


I love it and it does pretty much everything I want it to do. The GPS is great with one can't mark locations where you aren't currently located. That is one thing I really miss. The radar detector is foolproof. It marks locations that...

It's never wrong and it gives you plenty of warning so you can look around and spot whatever is making it alert

I wish it were a little easier to mark locations that aren't alert locations on the GPS

Just what I was looking for!


The manual was kind enough to inform me that I'm only allowed to use the GPS in California ;) but it found a new speed trap, being scoped out at a newly opened local service station, during it's first outing. Expensive, but well worth the price for a...

Ease of use

Have heard better voice chips

Detector Good - GPS SUCKS!


GPS maps are years out of date. Went online with no help so I called and was told there are no updates available for my state. That was months ago. EVERY TIME I drive through the downtown highway the GPS locks up because the new highway moved last...

Radar detector works well

Escort raises the bar with the Passport IQ


First off, I'm a real stickler about electronic gadgets in this price range as I try to find faults, weigh-in on the pros and cons in order to decide if they're 'keepers' to me in the long run.Needless to say, I had just returned a 64 GB wifi ipad mini...

Works much better than an Ipad mini for navigation and it gives the GPS competition something to worry about

I have tried to find something not-so-great about it, but I can't

Consumer review by:

Top notch radar detector; very good GPS


The radar detector is top rated; good filtering of false alarms, excellent responsiveness and distance. The GPS has very nice features, especially with "over speed warning". I prefer the turn alert instructions to my Garmin, the instructions a clear...

Performance; design

Consumer review by:

Very good product. Super accurate


See above. Why in the world would Best Buy make me write a certain amount of words?

Not only is it a very good radar detector, its a very good GPS as well

Kind of bulky, but the miunt makes up for it

This unit is great! Red Light alert is very nice fearure. I've added a red light location that was not there. They provide for this onscreen. Extremely easy to mark red light cameras on the fly.Red light alert also works over any muting which is good....

Cops won't see a detector if you do get puuled over

Large Size

Consumer review by:

Two birds with one stone


A great detector and navigation all in one. I really like the large screen. It is able to convey all the relevant information from a detector and a nav perspective. I travel a lot for work and it comes in very handy all over the US. It gets me where I...

Detection capability and nav performance

graphics and touch screen could be a little better
