Escort has continued to refine the digital processing technology showcased in the Passport Max radar detector, which we initially reviewed late last year. The company has followed with new "special edition" color options and, more importantly, several firmware updates to improve response time and false-alert rejection. In our full review, we check out the classy burl-wood model and put a few thousand miles on the latest firmware.
Escort has worked to bring radar/laser detectors into the digital age with the new Passport Max. The windshield-mount unit takes advantage of a digital signal processor (DSP) to help identify radar or laser signals that would otherwise be lost in background noise. In our full review, we drive with the Max to determine if it truly represents a leap in ticket-protection technology.
