Escort Passport 9500ix Radar / Laser Detector

Almost all companies that manufacturer radar detectors claim that their products are one of the best, if not the best in the market. They often describe their radar detectors as the most technologically advanced in the market, and this is fair game because they're allowed to do that. Most of the time, their products don't deliver. Not even close.

The Escort Passport 9500ix is different. Though the company makes the same claim, it actually delivers and comes close to matching the expectations it set in its product description. The device has exceptional range and is extremely accurate. You'll seldom encounter false alerts if any. It also comes with an internal GPS with comprehensive alert features and compatibility with the Escort Live app. The latter is an extremely neat feature because it connects you in real time to a community of other radar detectors.

Perhaps the most important feature of the Escort Passport 9500ix, however, is the built-in GPS. It's what lets you know where the potential threats are. As an added bonus, it comes with an AutoLearn feature. Basically, the gist of AutoLearn is that the device eventually learns how to filter out false alerts after weeks of use. You'll notice this when, after your first few weeks with the device, you'll receive various false alerts, usually from things like garage door openers. Eventually, the false alerts will come less frequently as AutoLearn has learned which alerts should be filtered and be considered as false. Still, it can get a bit too aggressive at times. It's not unusual to still continue receiving false alerts from real police radars months into use.

Even if it's a bit old in technology, the Escort Passport 9500ix remains one of the best radar detectors available. It has a comprehensive list of features, coupled with the necessary listening range and accuracy, to help keep you safe and alert for various traffic violations.
