I'm a "happy camper"

      Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

      Frankly, I've never had any of the problems described by some other users. And I commute through some of the most densely policed areas in the Nation.

      The one problem I did encounter was with the "sticky-cup" mount that disintegrated — after 2 1/2 years use.

      I have always used the device while connected to my smartphone — which I think is the best way to utlize the device. The combination of active and passive detection is the way forward for speedtrap avoidance, since no detector will inform of aerial surveillance, constantly repositioning patrol vehicles, intentional saturation of LASER, Ka, and K bands by police and highway road crews. That said, I also recommend running a road mapping app like WAZE alongside the ESCORT system for a maximum threat detection combination.

      In all, the Max2 has served me well, and I would purchase another.

      Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

      One major complaint was the body up front at the mount came apart, later found out it was an issue with many of the earlier models, was told I could send it in for a repair with a slight shipping cost, first off if I'm shelling out over 500 bucks for a radar detector it should have the bugs worked out of it, that's why I haven't invested into their latest technology, what good is it if it falls apart....quality beyond quantity, quantity will follow

      Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

      The detector itself is a great product. Escort always delivers. I do feel that this product was rolled out prematurely because it does not accurately filter Acura, Cadillac and Buick systems. Highly annoying to "guess" if there is something in the area, or "can I pass"?

      Escort should not have released this until it was right. I would request a refund and go back to my 9500IX if it hadn't already sold.

      Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

      Newbie User to the world or detectors. If I would have known it worked as good as it does, I would have paid twice that much. Unbelievable range, especially with most city and sheriff vehicles. Highway Patrol still a little more sneaky, but this thing does an incredible job.

      If you by this detector you will need the extended warenty for life. I have
      much older model RX65 that still works, so if you want to donate five or six
      hundred dollars to this company, feel free.

        Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

        I bought this unit in the fall of 2014 (even though I felt as though it was over priced) and I am for the most part, happy with it. It had detected police radar in advance, which is what you want out of a radar detector. My purchase came with a free 6 month subscription to Escort Live and, which allows you to update the radar detector's database and I updated weekly. My subscription expired and I didn't bother to buy a new subscription until just a few days ago. In that time, I have upgraded my computer to Windows 10 and now I can not update the radar detector. This problem appears to be common among Windows 10 users and it appears that it is a driver and software issue. I am going to be asking Escort for a refund of my subscription and monitor the Escort 'community forums" to see if Escort has fixed this issue. All in all ....... I'm happy with this product, but I can't give it a 5 star rating due to the update problems that I and others are having. The Red Light Camera warning is VERY good. BUT ....... In New York City and Long Island, cameras are being added all the time and if you can't update the unit, you will not be warned of a camera that is new.

          Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

          PROS:

          This was my first radar detector purchase and after years of hearing about how good the Escort detectors are, I can tell you with absolute certainty that they live up to the hype.

          I never leave home without it and I've taken it with me on several trips to Houston, TX, area from Tulsa, OK, and I've also taken it with me to Destin, FL. The drive to Houston from Tulsa is 8 hours @ 70mph and I've made it in under 7 hours. The drive to Destin, FL, is about a 14hr drive and I made it in a little under 12. Never once did the detector fail to alert me.

          The range of this detector is truly unbelievable. It's picked up bogeys from 5 miles away and had me thinking it was a false alert until I saw the Texas State Trooper with someone pulled over on the opposite side of the highway.

          CONS:
          The Escort LIVE app is essentially worthless because it requires a paid subscription so if everyone who runs a Passport Max doesn't also have a paid subscription, the LIVE feature is as I said...worthless.

          I have tried, time after time, to unmark locations that I had previously marked by mistake and the ONLY way to do it is to reset the detector back to factory settings which essentially wipes every AUTO-LEARN location, or to plug it in to your PC/MAC and use the Escort Tools app to do it. Needless to say, this is a real pain in the hind parts to deal with.
