Escort Passport 8500ci Plus
Radar and Laser / LIDAR Detector w/ GPS Module and Amplified Speaker for Audible Voice Alerts
The Ultimate ProtectionWe've all driven a little faster than we should have at one point or another. Some of us drive a little faster than we should more often than others so a lower end radar detector just isn't going to cut it. False alarms or warnings that come on too late are going to lead to expensive tickets and worse than that, you've invested in a product that doesn't work as well as it should. Isn't it time you stepped up to something better that's guaranteed to work all the time, every time? Then it's time to check out the Escort 8500ci Plus. The ultimate in vehicle protection.
The all new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus provides the ultimate in discreet operation. All sensors are mounted in the front grill and rear license plate area of your vehicle. Interior control module and display are separated for multiple installation options. The result is no messy cords or unwanted attention.
Supercharged Radar Protection
PASSPORT's patented antenna design provides long range protection against all known radar and laser guns including "instant-on" and the elusive "POP" mode.
The 8500ci Plus uses patented GPS technology to lockout false alarms, by exact location and frequency. The result is the most accurate reporting of real threats in the industry.
Crystal Clear Voice Alerts
PASSPORT's unique voice alerts provide clear communications for alerts and menus options.
Safety Camera Data
PASSPORT comes preloaded with thousands of safety camera locations, including red light and fixed position speed cameras located throughout North America. Updates will also be available through the Escort website and you can even set your own hot spots by using the "Mark Location" feature. Once marked, the 8500ci Plus will provide a unique alert so you're never caught off guard.
Speed Based Radar Performance
The 8500ci Plus uses an AutoSensitivity mode to vary radar sensitivity based on your vehicles speed. The result is radar performance when you need it most.
The miniature display provides a plethora of installation options, including an included in-dash bezel for a factory installed look. Easy-to-read alerts and access to user preferences are clearly visible at a glance.
User Selectable Preferences
Once installed, the 8500ci Plus is ready to use. However, you can also customize it for your unique driving preferences.
