ESCORT Introduces New Windshield Mount High Definition DSP Radar Detector

Category leading innovator and holder of over 85% of radar patents, ESCORT Inc. ( raises the radar detector performance benchmark again with the release of its all-new High Definition PASSPORT® Max™ radar & laser detector. Using advanced military technology, PASSPORT Max™ delivers high definition performance with ultra-fast signal processing and unprecedented noise filtering.

"Our new PASSPORT Max™ is the best detector we have ever made," said John Larson, ESCORT President and CEO.

True Digital Signal Processing allows PASSPORT Max™ to achieve ultra-fast processing speeds, unprecedented range reporting and DNA intelligent signal analysis for the ultimate in alert clarity.

PASSPORT Max™ establishes never before seen performance levels for radar and laser ticket protection.

By designing PASSPORT Max™ around advanced military high speed digital signal processing (DSP) technology, ESCORT engineers have given PASSPORT Max™ the ability to search for threats fifty times faster than any other radar detector. PASSPORT Max™ literally scans for radar threats faster than 'the blink of an eye' (a human eye blink takes several hundred milliseconds while PASSPORT Max™ scans signals more than twice as fast).

This dramatic increase in speed delivers a corresponding leap in detection capability and range.

In an advanced new product test overseen by the category's leading authority, Speed Measurement Labs (SML), PASSPORT Max™ established three new benchmarks for the detector category. Setting new records for longest range, fastest response time and greatest sensitivity, PASSPORT Max™ displayed the best performance that SML had ever witnessed.

"In 30 years of impartial testing, we haven't seen this level of reporting range or immediacy of alerts by any other radar detector," said Speed Measurement Labs President and CEO.

In one test, physicists used an extremely low powered radar gun to test sensitivity. Typically, detectors do not see this source beyond the one mile mark but PASSPORT Max™ reported the same source from beyond seven miles!

In another SML test, PASSPORT Max™ proved its extremely fast response time by alerting to measured test signals more than four times faster than any competitor detector ever tested.

To determine how far PASSPORT Max™ could alert, SML engineers used the longest physical distance on the range. PASSPORT Max™ reported every gun, every signal, to more than fifteen miles (standard detector testing for the SML range ends at nine miles as detectors predictably cannot pick up such weak test signals). PASSPORT Max™ simply reported alerts from the longest distance ever tested.

Additionally, high speed military DSP enables the PASSPORT Max™ to process signals with more than an order of magnitude increase in measured selectivity. An order of magnitude translates into a ten-fold increase in performance. This new level of selectivity, or intelligent signal analysis, is similar to the dramatic performance increase seen in forensics when technicians moved from fingerprint readings to the science of DNA analysis.

PASSPORT Max™ 'sees' the DNA of every received signal, a technology that no other detector possesses.

For drivers this means an entirely new level of signal information and awareness. PASSPORT Max™ filters the true alerts, those from radar guns, from unwanted false alerts, such as automatic door openers and motion sensors, that competitor radar detectors cry 'wolf' to over and over again. PASSPORT Max™ reports with an accuracy that exceeds any other technology ever driven.

"...this is the best radar detector ever made," said leading industry analyst, Radar Roy.

PASSPORT Max™ also features a new high definition OLED (organic LED) multi-color graphics display. Drivers can choose up to four different colors for displaying critical driving information such as posted speed limits, over speed alerts, driving speed and more.

The high speed DSP detector also includes ESCORT's patented GPS Location Awareness technology which enables PASSPORT Max™ to alert to fixed position threats including red light and speed cameras, major speed traps and future threat technologies as they unfold.

PASSPORT Max™ includes a mini-USB port for quick connection to the internet for software expansion, database updates and more. With internet connectivity, ESCORT engineers can always keep PASSPORT Max™ at the leading edge of detector performance.

PASSPORT Max™ is designed to connect with ESCORT's multi-award winning ESCORT Live™ ticket protection network. ESCORT Live™ helps customers drive smarter by dramatically increasing overall knowledge of their driving environment through threat and information sharing among networked drivers.

"As the category innovator, we simply keep pushing radar detector technology to new performance standards - PASSPORT Max™ establishes a completely new level of driving awareness and protection," said Tim Coomer, ESCORT Product Development Vice-president. "PASSPORT Max™ is the new best-in-class performance with record measured alert speed, record measured range and record measured selectivity for superior performance."

PASSPORT Max™ continues ESCORT's 30 plus year dominance of the radar detector category.

PASSPORT Max retails for $549.95 and is available factory direct.
