Absolutely the finest radasr detector out there

  • Summary: The Escort Passport 8500 Radar Detector is hands down the best detector you can buy. I have two of them. I have tested all the top detectors out there and nothing works as well as the 8500. It has no false signals in the city whatsoever and it's truly a long distance winner on the highways. The company has newer detectors that have GPS with a few more features but if radar and laser detection is what you want, this is your best bet.

Quality driving accessory made in the Usa, with added value.

  • Summary: My wife and I both drive over 70 miles each 5+ days a week, mostly freeway. Usually once a week we are glad we have these. For the price they work great and have many programmable features. If you have more $ I would get the 9500ix, which may eliminate false alerts. I have personally used Escort products for over 20 years and would recommend them for making high quality products, and do it in the USA! That is very hard to find anymore.

Great

  • Summary: Great detector and has earlier radar detector then any Mountain Radar Jammer, by the way they failed miserably, any day. I watch the jammer do nothing on police camera as I was approaching radar trap. The jammer did alarm but as for jamming, what a joke. The Escort will alarm way in advance and give you plenty of time to slow down. THe Escort even works around corners and over hills, which the other type does not.

  • Summary: I am very pleased with my Escort Passport 8500 Radar Detector. It has proven to be very reliable. I drive a long distance to go to work and this detector has been a very good reminder of the need to slow down while driving though small towns.

Passport Escort 8500 Blue Display

MichaelS, Crutchfield
13 July 2013
  • Summary: Works exactly as described. Used extensively for the first two weeks and it was flawless. Detected radar traps about 1 mile in advance with plenty of warning. Very well constructed with a nice matching case. Owned a passport 20 years ago and it seems the build is still excellent.
  • Pros: Plenty of lead time. Very few false positives on the highway. Well built.
  • Cons: Some false alarms in NYC.

Don't buy used ones

internetnomad, Ebay
24 June 2013
  • Summary: The new escorts/beltronics are poorly designed. I bought the 8500 X50 and Bel Vector 995 and both overheated within 2 hours of use (I live in Seattle where there isn't much sun so it wasn't in direct sunlight). It may work fine brand new but after a few years it will need to be sent in for repair. When you see the 'service required' indicator that's when you should get rid of it on ebay because it would also be out of warranty.

Amazing product, but app sucks up your data plan

  • Summary: This Escort is amazing. I bought it for a trip to Reno, NV and it saved me multiple times on the way there and the way back. By far the best feature of this radar detector is the optional Escort Live cord which syncs with your phone via Bluetooth and runs the Escort App that works in conjunction with other Escort radar detector users allowing you to see real live locations of police presence.
  • Pros: Ease of use
  • Cons: Uses a lot of your phones data plan when used with the Escort App. Would recommend using the app for daily driving, but great for road trips.
