Escort Passport Max

 

The Escort Passport Max combines the latest technology to provide the best protection available. See how it compares with other models out there.

The Passport Max is as effective at long range highway detecting as more intricate city radar detection

To access the Escort Live app you need to purchase the Smart Cord separately. Escort's software updates don’t have Mac compatibility

The best radar detector on the market

Best range and features

Yea, it's a little pricy

Consumer review by:

Great product, poor quality.

 

I had the Escort Passport 9500 before and that radar detector was a trooper (no pun intended). Eventually though the suction mount stopped holding and I eventually moved to using double-sided 3M tape and mounting it manually to the dashboard. I...
