Escort Passport SRX – A Review
Price: the price tag is $1199.00, making this one of the more expensive radar detectors in the market.
Bands: this product detects all bands of speed enforcement radar (X, K, Ka, and Ku) and has laser shifting technology.
Voice Alerts: voice alerts are given when a radar source is near.
False Alerts: the product eliminates false alerts using the AutoSensitivity Mode technology.
Features: includes a remote mute button and EZ-Programming – a feature that allows easy customization of the device.
Custom installed: the passport SRX is custom installed, making it convenient and aesthetic, not to mention, completely hidden in the vehicle. The disadvantage with this type of detector is that it cannot be carried to a different vehicle or used on a motorcycle.
GPS Technology: Not available for this product.
Detectable: Stealth installation: the passport SRX has multiple high performance programmable laser transceivers installed in front and in back of the vehicle. These enable the laser signal to be “shifter”, making it “94% effective” at being undetectable: it is completely immune to the VG-2 “detector-detector”.

In summary: the passport SRX, while possessing several strong features, and virtually undetectable to “detector-detector” devices, does not possess a GPS (which some of the other models do), and is relatively quite expensive. Consequently, despite being a superb radar detector, it may be worthwhile to add a bit more and go for the passport 9500ci which is hands on, the best radar detector on the market. That being said, except for the stealth functionality, it is comparable to some cheaper models (such as the 9500ix). So the question you must ask yourself: how important is the “detector-detector” for you? If it is, we believe you may as well get the better model. All in all, the SRX is an excellent radar detector, particularly considering its powerful stealth capabilities. Our overall score: 4.0/5.0
