West Chester, OH (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
ESCORT Inc, the leading manufacturer of premium automotive accessories and maker of the world's best radar and laser detectors, today announced the release of its all new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ custom installed radar/laser detector. The new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ includes ESCORT’s test-winning Defender Database™ for red light and speed camera protection. “Our new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ is a simple, clean, custom installed system that features our class-leading radar and laser protection technology as well as red light, speed camera and speed trap alerts built in. The 8500ci Plus offers great value, unmatched in the industry by all other remote systems,” said John Larson, ESCORT President and CEO. “Detailed information reported by the discreet in-vehicle display reassures drivers that they are being protected with a superior radar and laser defense system.”
The new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ is comprehensive yet easy to install. The ambient sealed radar/laser detector is designed for under-hood mounting behind the grille while the display controller discreetly mounts in the cockpit of the car. Physically separating the major system components into remotely installed modules creates a system that simultaneously delivers industry leading radar/laser performance and protection while completely eliminating visible brackets, cups and cords.
Based on the industry standard “World’s Best” award-winning PASSPORT 8500 series detector platform, the PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ custom installed radar detector features test-winning long range performance against all guns and all modes of radar and laser used today. Additionally, the new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ goes beyond all competitors by incorporating ESCORT’s patented GPS based TrueLock™ technology to manually lock out false alerts with the touch of a button.
Using built-in location awareness technology, the PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ employs ESCORT’s award winning Defender Database™ and provides alerts to the fastest growing threat drivers face today – red light and speed camera locations. “Our new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ is a completely custom installed high performance radar and laser detector, exclusively based on our proven test-winning performance and unique innovations,” said Dave Smidebush, ESCORT Vice-president of Marketing. “For example, the PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ enhances radar and laser protection by using our patented TrueLock™ technology which allows drivers to manually lock out false alerts, a benefit not available in competitor products. And the new 8500ci Plus provides timely warnings with accurate locations of red light and speed cameras and major speed traps, again benefits not available anywhere else,” he added.
The new PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ also features key ESCORT technologies including:
- AutoSensitivity™ for automatically adjusting radar performance based on driving speed
- ExpertMeter™ for alerting and displaying multiple radar threats simultaneously
- SpecDisplay™ that reports the exact frequency of a threat source
- Cruise Alert which allows user control for reduction of alerts under a set speed
- TSR (traffic signal rejection) software that rejects traffic-flow K band monitors
- Mark Location which allows the driver to index locations for later reminders
- Eleven user-selectable preference settings for personalizing its use
The PASSPORT 8500ci Plus™ is completely compatible with ESCORT’s Shifter™ Pack for the ultimate protection against speed-of-light laser encounters.
