    ESCORT Passport 8500 X50 Radar Detector

    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # 8500 X50 )

    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.

    3-Levels of Brightness Control

    Mute and AutoMute
    Patented Mute and AutoMute feature automatically reduces the volume level during an alert to eliminate annoyance from long radar encounters.
