The Passport 8500ci is designed by Escort to be the quickest and easiest to install integrated radar detector system made. The system has three components: The antenna/receiver, the interface, and the display/controller. Just connect the interface to a switched power supply and connect the antenna and display using standard RJ11 cables.
In addition to easy installation, the 8500ci offers great performance. The 8500ci detects all X, K and Superwide Ka bands and all types of laser. The Passport 8500ci has voice alerts, a Signal Strength Meter, AutoMute, and three sensitivity levels. Since the display can be mounted almost anywhere, it is easily concealed. If you have been looking for an integrated radar detector to replace the device sitting in plain view on your windshield, then the 8500ci may be the one.
Although installation of the 8500ci is easy, you may still prefer a professional installation. For your convenience, we are pleased to offer InstallCard Professional Concealed Radar Detector Installation as an additional option.
Three High-Resolution Display Modes
|The Escort 8500ci features a powerful display, which has 3 possible modes:
In the standard bar graph mode, the Escort 8500ci will show one band that was detected and a bar graph representing the signal strength.
In ExpertMeter™ mode, the 8500ci can identify band and relative signal strength of up to 8 radar signals at once.
In SpecDisplay™ mode, the detector will show the band and actual frequency being detected.
