Passport Escort Radar Detector: Avoid the Speed Traps

Car Products to Save you Money

The Escort Passport 9500ix radar detector review: There are a few of us that do not like parting with our hard earned cash for speeding fines. Well who really likes getting fined or accumulating points on their driving license?

Passport Escort Radar 9500ix

9500ixExactly, well I have always been a person to speculate to accumulate and last Saturday forked out just over $400 for a wondrous radar detector by Escort to save me money in the long run. In these times of austerity we all need to cut back but I have stacked up well over 400 dollars in my days as an erratic driver mainly in my younger days er….moving on.

The 9500ix features every whistle and bells you could want and this product even learns on the job.

Every time you approach a police static camera or police man with radar a gun trying to trap you in a speed trap the Escort 9500ix beeps and stores the location of this speeding trap.

More to the point when you buy this product you also get 6 months free hooked up to the Speed Signal Database. This systematically updates your device to input all the locations of all the speed cameras nationwide throughout the USA, how cool is that!

So my advice is to read an indepth review on this product here
or watch this Youtube Video for more information on the Passport 9500ix Radar Detector.
