Is your dash jumbled with 12-volt electronic gadgets, for example, a radar finder, a GPS and maybe even a blue tooth hands free phone interface? Don’t you wish that somebody could think of a gadget that would join all these into one?
Well now there is such a gadget and it is the new Escort Passport IQ radar finder, GPS and the sky is the limit from there.
When I initially laid hands on the Escort Passport IQ, I called it a distinct advantage in the way that Escort’s designers could make a radar indicator that had the superior of the Escort 9500ix and stuff everything into a full highlighted dash mounted GPS that additionally included discretionary blue tooth capacities for hands free calling, live XM activity detailing while likewise building up the abilities for future gadgets.
At the point when my better half got the opportunity to see the unit out of the blue she remarked that it was the primary radar locator that she at any point seen that she would be agreeable in putting on her dashboard since it didn’t resemble a customary radar indicator.
In view of the GPS capacities of the Escort Passport IQ it can advise you in well ahead of time when you approach one of those photograph authorization gadgets, for example, a red light camera or photograph radar camera with a sound caution while additionally showing the correct area of the risk on the IQ’s five inch screen.
There are additionally a bunch of other screen alternatives, for example,

3D Navigation Mode that will give your present area and course on an its five inch screen while additionally showing any photograph authorization speed traps straightforwardly on the guide.
The Passport IQ’s maps are fueled by the Navteq database, which is one of the more exact GPS mapping databases accessible today.
The IQ’s photograph requirement database is controlled through the Defender database, which is refreshed week by week.
Need to refresh your Defender database or refresh the identifiers firmware, simply download the most recent updates online from your PC and after that specifically into your Escort IQ.
The our testing of the Escort IQ’s radar indicators execution in range and affectability we found that it was proportional to other superior radar locators in its class, for example, the Escort 9500ix and the Escort 8500×50.
To the extent its sifting capacities in sifting through those irritating each one of those false cautions, the IQ was over the class tying with the 9500ix and the 9500ci for the lead position because of the consideration of the Autolearn keen separating abilities found in every one of the three identifiers.
The absolute most regularly made inquiries we get concerning the Escort Passport IQ incorporate;
Is the IQ stealth against the radar identifier finder devcies, for example, the Specter and should I consider enacting the Ku band work in the unit
To the extent stealth, no, despite the fact that the Escort Passport IQ is stealth to the eye, it isn’t stealth to the RDD’s, for example, the Specter. On the off chance that you do drive in zones where radar finders are illicit you can deactivate the radar indicator capacities while as yet utilizing the full included GPS. In any case, If you require a finder that is stealth to all RDD’s then I would prescribe either the Escort Redline, the Escort 9500ci or the Beltronics STi.
To the extent actuating Ku band, in the event that you drive in North America I would prescribe that you abandon it killed, as there is no police office in North America that utilizations Ku band.
