The PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ is a Custom Installed Radar/Laser, Red Light and Speed Camera Detector with Patented Speed & Location Intelligence™. The system consists of four components: the antenna/receiver, the interface, the GPS module and the display/controller. It's an integrated detection solution designed by Escort to install discreetly and become one with your vehicle.
In addition to complete, custom installation, the 8500ci-Plus offers supercharged performance. The 8500ci Plus detects all X, K and Superwide Ka bands and all types of laser. The Passport 8500ci-Plus has voice alerts, a Signal Strength Meter, AutoMute, and three sensitivity levels. It also includes three display modes with 5 brightness levels, including Full Dark mode. Since the display can be mounted almost anywhere, it is easily concealed.
But that's only a start. The 8500ci Plus incorporates GPS technology to provide even more exciting features. It can lock out false alarms by precise location and frequency. It can vary radar sensitivity based on your vehicle’s speed. It can even modify audible radar and laser alerts when your vehicle is traveling within specified speeds. Plus, your PASSPORT 8500ci Plus comes preloaded with Escort's DEFENDER™ Database with thousands of safety camera locations, such as red light cameras, speed cameras and known speed traps across North America. The DEFENDER™ Database can be easily updated and the Mark Location feature allows you to add your own hot spots so you are never caught off guard.
Add in Escort's Traffic Signal Rejection (TSR) software to filter out false alerts, and you have one powerful radar detection system. If you have been looking for an integrated radar detector to replace the device sitting in plain view on your windshield, then the 8500ci Plus is a top contender.
