Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Great Detector
I have had the detector for a month and I upgraded from a 8500 x50 and this one works so much better. It eliminates many of the false alarms and the display is great. I always felt you pay a little more, but it still is a great value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom I would not buy this particular detector again
I have owned several Escort detectors and they have all performed very well. For the first time in 2 years, this detector didn't pick up Laser at all and I got a ticket. I'm not sure if the laser function works at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Big Ern I would not purchase this model again.
I've owned at least four different models of Escort detectors. This is the first product Passport Max that I have been completely dissatisfied with. The GPS would show 20mph and then immediately shoot up to over 125 while traveling 70mph. Sent it back to Escort who corrected the GPS. When hit with a radar gun, the immediate warning tone would go off for less than one second. The screen would show full bars but no sound even with the volume turned up to max. I didn't notice this until one night, traveling a little over the speed limit, an oncoming Oklahoma Highway Patrol flashed his red and blue lights at me as a friendly "slow down warning". I returned it again to Escort (after the warranty) and they reprogrammed it (at no charge - great customer service) but when it was returned, the problem was never fixed. I'm now looking for a replacement detector and am hesitant about purchasing another Escort. The prices continue to rise at Escort and they only have one model that has stealth technology but lacks other options. Why doesn't Escort produce one model that has all of the previous features from their other award winning detectors? I guess if they did, it would be way out of the normal users price range (as if not already at that range). Aggravated Customer!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave48 Escort Max was a bad experience for me, twice.....
I tried (2) different Escort Max detectors assuming the first one was defective. BOTH detectors had such poor audio you could not understand the message of warning. Also, setting up for a speed trap the warnings would not come until you were reasonably close to the trap location...... obviously no value there. I am not new to Escort, as we have them in three vehicles, two of them the 9500ix and the third the 9500. I highly recommend the 9500ix, best one yet! I would never purchase another Escort Max until I knew these problems were corrected, very little value as far as I'm concerned with my experience with TWO of them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robo The range is outstanding
I love this detector. I just purchased a 2nd Max for my 2nd car. After reading the manual to insure it's set up correctly with my preferences, it's good to go without further worries. When the alarm sounded with passengers on board, after seeing the reason, the comment was: "that thing really tells you in advance". (Instant radar is a different story if you're alone on the highway, but if not alone, it gives adequate warning too.) I also give many kudos for the ability of this detector to blank out false alarms after passing the same bogus signal location "x" number of times. I can't imagine anyone not being happy with the Max.
