Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

Though I will never understand why they discontinued the max series before the 360, but still sell the original passport as on 5/30/17, which the max series are better preforming. Although it's a discontinued model, it still preforms very well with 1.7. Just wished they still made updates for it to give it better filtering and performance. It is best suited for city and highway driving, but wooded areas can be a challenge.

    I drive over 100 miles a day and this is an upgrade from my 9500 which I am quite happy with. Have read the other reviews and have had none of the problems mentioned.

      Comments about Escort Passport Max Radar/Laser Detector:

      Right out of the box, I installed this unit. After a few tweaks on the app I was off. Less than a mile from my house was a speed trap and I was going 15 over and it alerted Ka and saved me at least 200.00.

      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.

          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.
