When we introduced the PASSPORT 8500 X50 radar detector, it was instantly
acclaimed "The World's Best."
In more than one dozen independent tests, review after review, year after year, PASSPORT comes out on top.
Now we've made it even better. The new PASSPORT 8500 X50, or as we like to
call it the "X50 Black", delivers a
vicious 40% performance improvement. It has a sophisticated new look and includes a fitted travel case and
Hailed as the most revolutionary radar/laser detector ever.
The Passport 8500 X50's new "V-Tuned" radar
receiver provides extreme detection range on all police radar; conventional and "instant-on" radar, including
the new POP mode radar threat, X-Band, and up to 50% more range than the original Passport 8500 on the
all-important K and Ka bands. Digital signal processing (DSP) provides maximum range, with minimum false alarms.
The Passport 8500 X50 includes our proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR)
software to eliminate false alerts.
