The Passport 9500ix takes the next great leap forward in radar and laser protection. It starts with ESCORT's test-winning performance, which sets the standard for true long-range radar and laser protection. In addition we've added "AutoLearn" which utilizes our patented GPS technology to identify and eliminate false alerts automatically. This "artificial intelligence" creates the world's first fully automatic radar and laser detector - You drive. It learns. End of story. Nothing could be easier.
We've also addressed the increasing number of safety cameras throughout the U.S. and Canada, including red-light and fixed position speed cameras, by programming thousands of these locations into to its memory. As you approach these high-risk locations, the PASSPORT 9500ix alerts you in advance, keeping you up to date and ticket-free. To stay updated, simply connect it to your Windows based PC with active internet connection and download the most recent updates from the Escort website.
AutoLearn: Artificial Intelligence Protection
Our AutoLearn feature uses artificial intelligence to automatically "learn" (by exact location and frequency) each radar signal and determines if it's a real threat. The result is the most accurate long-range protection in the industry and a permanent solution to false alarms.
Speed traps and camera locations are everywhere. It's a stretch of highway where they always sit, or it's a back road that quickly changes from 45 mph to 25 mph within a few hundred feet. You don't always remember, but now your PASSPORT 9500ix will. We've addressed the increasing number of "safety" cameras installed throughout the U.S. and Canada, by including red light and fixed-position speed cameras. Each model is shipped pre-loaded with thousands of these camera locations stored in its memory. As you approach these locations, the 9500ix will alert you in advance, keeping you up-to-date and ticket-free. You can even add your own "hot spots" using our exclusive Mark Location feature. And, since the number of "safety" cameras continues to grow each day, we've made it simple and easy to keep you updated.
The PASSPORT 9500ix is the first radar and laser detector that can be easily updated using your computer and the power of the internet. Simply connect your detector to your Windows based PC with active internet connection, log on to our website, and download the most up to date locations. You can even back up your data or update the detector's operating software, (firmware), if needed. The database is updated weekly, and Escort provides 90 days of downloadable updates for free. DEFENDER� Database Subscriptions are also available to keep you up to date on future Speed Traps, Red Light Cameras and Speed Cameras.
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.
Variable Speed Sensitivity - On Demand Performance
Our patented GPS technology allows us to make your driving experience free from distractions and less complicated. For example, both models use GPS to vary X and K-band sensitivity based on your vehicle's speed. This allows the detector to provide alerts based on what the vehicle is actually doing. At highway speeds you need the best long range sensitivity you can get. At slower speeds, the sensitivity can be adjusted to further reduce unneeded alerts, especially when you're not at risk. We've even changed the actual alert to a short double-tone when your vehicle is moving less than 20 mph.
Simple and Intuitive Controls
All of products are pre-set and ready to go. However, each of them can be set up for your specific type of driving and personal preference. Our Preferences option allows you to change several options, including which radar bands you'd like to monitor, which meter you would like to see when a signal is detected and whether you'd like to see your vehicle speed during the initial alert. Regardless of how you drive, we've got you covered.
SpeedAlert� Provides Vehicle Speed During Each Alert
The PASSPORT 9500ix radar detector provides all the information you need to make an intelligent decision during each and every alert. The radar or laser band, signal strength, and now your vehicle speed are displayed during an alert to help you make the best possible decision.
Crystal-Clear Voice Alerts
PASSPORT's unique voice alerts provide clear communications for alerts and menu options. Now you can keep your eyes on the road without unnecessary distractions
