Passport 8500 X50
Does Not Apply
|Keeping yourself on the right side of local traffic laws is easy with the help of the Escort Passport 8500 X50 radar detector. Encased in a discrete black housing, the 8500 still stands out among radar detectors for its reliability and ease of use. This discrete, compact detector is ready to go right out of the box as it receives power from your vehicle's auto accessory power/cigarette lighter outlet. The Passport is a complete solution, being able to detect radar on the X, K, and Ka-bands as well as notification of upcoming laser equipment. The inclusion of detection of instant-on and POP, or extremely short burst, modes means lightning-fast response time, giving you extra time to check and, if necessary, regulate your speed. The 8500 X50 also boasts impressive search range, with its sensors detecting and broadcasting an alert of Ka-band equipment from up to a mile away. This gives you more than ample time to react to scanning of targets far ahead of you on the road.An early adopter of TSR software, the Escort Passport 8500 makes use of Traffic Signal Radar to analyze and not report on the low-power radar units used by traffic signals for traffic control, doing away with many false alarms when used in urban settings. The Passport 8500 does not yet include onboard GPS, limiting detection of red-light and other camera alerts. Its superiority at laser and triple-band radar detection makes it a favorite product year after year among laser and triple-band detectors thanks to its simplicity, reliability, and features. Utilizing its 280-LED bar graph display for clear visual notification of signal strength, the 8500 X50 detector also provides audio cues with distinct tones that differentiate between each band of radar. Since the information passed by audio warnings can eventually get annoying and repetitive, the Escort X50 receiver also incorporates an AutoMute mode, which slowly brings the alert's volume down, keeping drivers informed of upcoming potential hazards with minimal intrusion. For more discreet driving at night, users can set the device to Dark Mode where the display turns LED notifications off. You can still receive visual alerts on the SmartCord accessory as directly on the lighter plug are a power cord that has a power on/off button, an alert lamp that warns of upcoming signals, and a mute button. Lastly, this device is also compatible with Escort's ESCORT Live Radar mobile app, which features regularly updated speed trap information, traffic-enforcement and photo camera locations, automatic reminders of previously noted threats, and the ability to share new threats discovered by your detector via the Escort Live network.|

Easy to use
Value for your money
I set out shopping for a radar detector and I was particularly looking for one with the highest number of positive user reviews. All reviews pointed out one particular brand - ESCORT. With my budget and needs I got myself this 8500 X50 Black with Red display. I was eager to test it out and sure enough I have. The first thing you see out of the box is a compact well built and well thought out design not to mention the sleekness. Mounting on the windshield is easy and it stays level with minimal vibrations even on a rough road surface. The device is user friendly and packs all the basic features you will ever need from a detector. The performance is impressive too with City, Highway and Auto sensitivity settings on the go. The device has a remarkable range too from the few tests i did starting at 1.5km which will give you an ample time to adjust accordingly. Bottom line, this device will give you 100% value for your money and save you much more.

pain in the butt, high price for not alot of quality
it's a pain to program to try to get it to not go off at every single cell tower, vehicle that has blind spot monitoring, other radar detectors, security systems, etc. It does pick up police speed radar, so technically it does work - but just super annoying when it's constantly going off for reasons you don't care about. when put on 'sensitive' - it often doesn't pick up police radar. Plastic body cracked from the sun the first week it was on my windshield. A lot of money for not much quality.
Exceeds all my expections for value, performance and price!!!
I purchased my Escort Passport 8500 X50 Black used and I am very happy with it. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it must be returned to Escort for any software updates at a reasonable fee. It is the same or very similar to the 9500Xi with the exception it doesn't have GPS and is not software upgradeable via an internet connection. Very, very few false alerts. Easy to operate right out of the box or you can customize it to fit your needs. I will never buy another brand of detector again except for Escort. Radar Roy doesn't lie about this detector. Watch his reviews and learn about the Escort Passport line of detectors.
Radar/ Laser Detectors
This radar laser detector works great. If a patrol car is shooting radar, usually you can pick it up from about 2 miles(max). However if the officer is shooting instant on radar then you are probably out of luck because you won't pick up the radar until he flips the switch. This is almost the same concept as the laser detector. The problem is when you are hit with a laser gun, the office has clocked you instantly, giving you no time to try and slow down (if you are speeding). This means you need laser jammers. Advice? When traveling, don't be in a hurry to be the one out in front, the patrol car clocks the first car and pulls that one over, even if there are 10 other cars speeding. Most importantly, DON'T SPEED. ***EXAMPLE*** If you are going on a trip that is only 60 miles away, take a freeway with a 60mph speed limit and decide to speed at 75mph, you will save 12 minutes. If you get a ticket for speeding, and have to take defensive driving, you will pay about $200.00 and waste 6 hours of your life. And most importantly, lose the 12 minutes you wanted to save by getting pulled over. a. take the original 12 minutes you should spend driving safely b. spend 6 hours in a boring class and pay $200 c. let someone else drive :)
Great replacement for an older, less sophisticated unit
Replaced an older Cobra. Very impressed with the features and flexibility. Blocks false signals fairly well, but this seems to reduce the early warning time for real signals. Not a problem if speed is not greater than 10 mph over limit. Could be a lower power radar signal, so it doesn't carry as far. POP seems to pick up false signals. Haven't tested POP thoroughly yet. Overall satisfied with the unit.
