Rated 4 out of 5Â by DeKay Overall great performance
The Max is a FAN-tastic machine - It has excellent range and sensitivity, seems to eliminate false readings my other units pick up - The only drawback is the volume, even on high, is way to quiet, not alarming at all. That needs to be corrected and if possible updated. Really difficult to hear with radio on, top open or down. The other two machines I have will "wake you up", especially with lazer while this one gives you a gentle wake up call.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SteveW33 Replaced my V1 with the Max and very happy
Had my V1 for over 15 years and it was extremly reliable. The only problem was the constant false alarming with no way to stop them. I put up with it until my 2015 BMW M4 was delivered, then the false alarms were constant due to the lane change and blind spot signals the car put out. Called V1 and they said I could eliminate 80-90% with new $150 upgrade. Sold it on ebay for $325 and bought the Max and never looking back. This unit works great and when it goes off you jump out of your seat becuase you know it is a real alert. Love the unit and the fine tuning.

The product is good, it is already outdated in terms of interface / screen. It should be much larger with higher levels of intuition built in.
I don't like the suction cup, it is too big and hard to remove unit (maybe that's a plus for being easily stolen).
I've been a supporter for years and have updated often from the original big box.
So, quit squeezing profits out of this one and improve it. Are you the best? in some areas, you used to be the best all around. Maybe next time you put current tech into it. Plus the app for the phone is way out-dated, used too much battery, and not up to app expectations. This is a field that you have to be on your game as the younger gen expects top notch programming.
The app and the usability brings you down, step up it's 2014.

First off, I probably should not have bought a v8...
But I can say that the Passport Max is the best radar detector I own. I am in NJ, and if you know the roads in NJ, you know the cops love writing tickets...but we have huge straight stretches on the Turnpike, one cant help one's self!!
I have had this thing go off almost a mile and a half before I saw the NJSP, and by that time I was just blending in...great warning features and I love the ability to change it to a tone alert, instead of all the beeping and chirping.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Wazoo54 I did not think we could better the 9500, but this new detector reals identifies the troopers running radar. I am amazed how far out it detects them.
Quality product with great radar detecting features. I liked my old 9500 ix, but when my daughter's 10 year old detector failed,8500 series, I gave her my two year old 9500 ix unit and order the Passport Max. My only issue with this new unit is that I have a difficult time with the release button. I have a difficult time removing the detector off of its mount due to the slope of the windshield. The release button needs to be installed further back on this unit. I had no issues with the older 9500 ix unit. Wazoo54
