Escort Passport 8500 X50


$300.00 Released August, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Gives plenty of advanced warning in flat terrain. Generous enough warning in hills and around curves to keep you out of trouble if you react right away. Generally extremely quiet, only really calls attention to itself with an alert.

The Cons:Mounting bracket is a little flimsy. Sometimes picks up false reads from garage door openers.
