When it comes to politicians, Escorts typically get you into trouble.  Ask Eliot Spitzer.  However, when it comes to your ride, there are few companies dedicated to saving your hide like Escort.  The stalwart radar detector company is now debuting its Passport Max High Definition DSP radar detector.  And check out the sexiness of that OLED display.  ESCORT-Max_introAlthough this is a windshield-mount model, about the only way to achieve better performance is to get a professionally installed radar detector with sensors mounted to the exterior of the ride (Escort can provide you with one of those, too).  But, for those who drive different vehicles everyday and rental cars, this is the way to fly.  If only Escort would develop an escort detector for philandering politicians…X-rated band?

West Chester, Ohio June 10, 2013 ─ Category leading innovator and holder of over 85% of radar patents, ESCORT Inc. (escortinc.com) raises the radar detector performance benchmark again with the release of its all-new High Definition PASSPORT Max™ radar & laser detector. Using advanced military technology, PASSPORT Max™ delivers high definition performance with ultra-fast signal processing and unprecedented noise filtering. “Our new PASSPORT Max™ is the most important technology that we have ever produced,” said JohnLarson, ESCORT President and CEO. “PASSPORT Max™ best-in-class performance gives drivers faster alertspeed, superior range and ultimate signal analysis for false alert rejection,” added Larson.

PASSPORT Max™ uses true Digital Signal Processing (DSP is the moniker for displaying electrical engineers’ ultimate expertise) to achieve the fastest response, unprecedented range and DNA waveform analysis of radar signals for record setting reception range, signal discernment and false alert rejection.

Max™ rocks the detector category by establishing never before seen performance levels for radar and laser ticket protection. “In 30 years of impartial testing, we haven’t seen this level of reporting range or immediacy of alerts by any other radar detector.”

The PASSPORT Max™ brings advanced military technology to ticket protection – high speed digital signal processing (DSP). With high speed DSP, the new Max is more than 400% faster than any other radar detector’s ability to detect a signal. PASSPORT Max scans for radar threats – literally, faster than ‘the blink of an eye’ (a human eye blink takes several hundred milliseconds while Max scans signals more than twice as fast!).

This dramatic increase in speed delivers a corresponding leap in detection capability and range. In a behind-the-scenes new product test overseen by the category’s leading authority, Speed Measurement Labs (SML), Max dramatically outperformed all other detectors including all that have ever been measured. Prior to the Max test, the longest range tested had been typically nine miles.

Enter Max – on test day, ESCORT’s newest creation established three new benchmarks for the detector category overseen by SML engineers: overall range at more than fifteen miles, fastest response and greatest sensitivity ever witnessed. “Wow! ‘Insatiable Range And Immediate Alerts’ – we’ve never seen anything like it in our 30 years of field testing,” said SML’s President and CEO.

Linked to range, speed and sensitivity, engineers also describe detectors in terms of selectivity – the detector’s ability to alert to true threat sources while determining and rejecting troublesome false alert signals. High speed military DSP enables the Max to process signals with an order of magnitude increase in measured selectivity. This new level of selectivity, or intelligent signal analysis, is similar tothe step in forensics when technicians moved from fingerprint readings to the whole science of DNA analysis. Max ‘sees’ the DNA of every received signal, a technology that no other detector possesses.

Max is the DNA science of radar signal processing. What this means for drivers is an entirely new level of signal information and awareness. Max filters the true alerts, those from radar guns, from unwanted false alerts, such as automatic door openers that competitor radar detectors cry ‘wolf’ to over and over again, with an accuracy that exceeds any other technology ever driven.

The all new, high speed DSP detector also includes ESCORT’s patented GPS Location Awareness technology which gives Max the added ability to alert to fixed position threats including red light and speed cameras, major speed traps and future threat technologies yet to be released. Max also possesses TrueLock – the patented technology that gives Max the genius trait of scanning, analyzing and then locking out false alert sources, automatically!

Max includes a mini-USB port for quick connection to the internet for software expansion, data base updates and more. With internet connectivity, Max can always be kept at the leading edge of ESCORT detector engineering.

Rated Best New Product at SEMA upon its release, Max connects easily with ESCORT Live™, ESCORT’s multi-award winning ticket protection network. ESCORT Live™ helps customers drive smarter by dramatically increasing overall knowledge of their driving environment. ESCORT Live™ helps you to know sooner, prepare faster and share important information in real time.

When linked with the new PASSPORT Max™, the leading edge pair provide unprecedented ticket protection and information sharing to help your drive smarter.

ESCORT’s new PASSPORT Max™ detector also features a new high definition OLED (organic LED) multi-color graphics display. Drivers can choose up to four different colors and critical driving information such as red light and speed camera alerts, posted speed limits, over speed alerts, driving speed and more are displayed in true HD fashion.

PASSPORT Max will retail for $549.95 and is available factory direct beginning June 10.
