Escort Passport 8500 X50 (Certified Refurbished)
High Performance Window Mount Radar/Laser Detector
When we introduced the PASSPORT 8500 X50, it was instantly acclaimed "The World's Best." In more than one dozen independent tests, review after review, year after year, PASSPORT comes out on top.
"The new Passport 8500's leading-edge technology raises the bar another notch in high- performance radar and laser detection - the World's Best."
"The Passport 8500 might be the best radar detector ever made!"
"Escort has come up with a state-of-the-art detector..."
Hailed as the most revolutionary radar/laser detector ever! The Passport 8500 X50's new "V-Tuned" radar receiver provides extreme detection range on all police radar; conventional and "instant-on" radar, including the new POP mode radar threat, X-Band, and up to 50% more range than the original Passport 8500 on the all- important K and Ka bands. Digital signal processing (DSP) provides maximum range, with minimum false alarms.
The Passport 8500 X50 includes our proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR) software to eliminate false alerts.
Enhanced Radar Protection
Our enhanced "V-Tuned" radar receiver provides extreme long range warning on all radar: conventional and "instant-on" including POP mode, X-band, K-band, and SuperWide Ka-band. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) provides maximum range, with minimum false alarms.
Exclusive AutoSensitivity Mode
ESCORT's patented AutoSensitivity mode intelligently identifies real threats from other radar sources. Plus, our exclusive Traffic Signal Rejection (TSR) software rejects interstate traffic sensors making it quiet to own and operate.
High-Performance Laser Protection
PASSPORT's multiple high-performance laser sensors provide maximum laser warning, with superior off-axis protection. For the ultimate in laser protection add the optional ZR4 Laser Shifter.
