No matter how powerful a traditional radar detector is, there’s one inherent flaw—it’s a reactive device. Sure, it’ll let you know when the fuzz is on the prowl, but it can’t warn you that you’re entering a known speed trap zone or that you’re approaching an intersection with a red light camera. For proactive protection against ticket-happy patrolmen, equip your auto with the Escort PASSPORT 8500ci Plus Radar Detector.
Beyond its uncanny ability to sniff out X, K and SuperWide Ka-band running in instant-on or POP modes, the PASSPORT 8500ci Plus has a special trick up its high-tech sleeve: a GPS device. This smart radar detector tracks you location and crosschecks where you are to its DEFENDER database, giving you real-time alerts about known red light cameras, speed cameras and ticket traps. Plus, you can customize the database by adding your own markers, whether they’re false alarm spots or cop hangouts.
As discreet as it is effective, the Escort 8500ci Plus hardwires into your auto and blends into your interior like a chameleon. Depending on whether you’re driving sporty or staying at the limit, you can set the 8500ci Plus to run in AutoSensitivity Mode for stronger radar vigilance or Cruise Alert Mode for more relaxed detection. And, your Escort PASSPORT 8500ci Plus comes with a 1-year warranty.
