Escort Passport 8500×50 Review

by admin on January 5, 2013

The Escort Passport 8500×50 is an efficient laser and radar detector that will zero in even on the latest Pop radar technology. This radar detector is at par with ultra sensitive detectors that can detect even Pop radar which has very low operating frequencies. It is easy to mount, use and maintain and will require little setting to use anywhere you want to drive.

  • The Escort Passport 8500×50 is very accurate which means you can have confidence in as you drive even on busy streets. Although it can never prevent you from driving fast but you can become aware of cops who are monitoring you even from afar and control your speed.
  • You can easily use this unit even when it just came out of the box. With the convenient earphone jack you can monitor everything up close. You can easily detect all possible threats with the easy to read LED display even at night making it a real life saver.
  • This is a real solid investment especially when you have a tarnished driving record or have several speeding tickets to settle.
  • The EZ programmable features make it very easy to use every time, no need to make adjustments every time you drive to work or for your daily errands around the neighborhood. You may also switch to city or interstate modes quickly.

This unit lacks GPS capabilities which are found in other Escort and other high end laser and radar detectors. The mounting bracket also needs more work according to most users which could be better if it were more durable.

Final words on the Escort Passport 8500×50
The Escort Passport 8500×50 is a laser and radar detection device that is highly sensitive. This device is expensive at just under $300 on, we think that there should be more features like GPS capabilities and faster detection capabilities. But all in all, this product will help you evade from simple to much updated radars and lasers on the road.
