The thing is amazing, if you were considering getting one... get it. I can't believe how far away this thing gets radar and laser. I'll be driving and it'll go off... keep going off... and I'll think I'm getting a false signal until 2+ miles later I see the cop. And the programable GPS is incredible; no more of the false alarms from traffic light sensors and the usual store alarms I drive by.

Check out the escort redline. Strongly considering buying it. Apparently better than the passport in all areas other than the fact that it doesn't have gps.

but... but... why?

Body needs a lot of work. Car has been hit twice. I have dropped it on frame driving. It lived in a barn for a winter where it became a luxury shit hotel for mice. I have wanted a c70 convertible and we are moving so this makes sense. The 96 isnt going anywhere.

Did you get a deal on it? I've wanted to grab one of these especially before Carlisle but everything is just way out of my price range (you get what you pay for) which is why I am hesitant to invest in a $100 radar detector or something similar.

Not really, $370 on eBay. The next day I got a "one day only" offer emailed from Amazon to buy a new one for $299 (that's the best deal out there that I've seen).

For cheaper but still works, check out the Bel RX65. Works really well, just doesn't have GPS. You can get those new on eBay for around $150 shipped.

Check out the escort redline. Strongly considering buying it. Apparently better than the passport in all areas other than the fact that it doesn't have gps.

The Redline and the 9500 are close; which one is the way to go will depend on you and where you live. Definitely read reviews, they both rate really well.

Curious about the Passport Max and what all that does differently than the Escort or the 9500. It's pricey.

Also, these are awesome. The mirror mounts don't fit our cars, and I hate the suction cup mounts. They work for about 6 months, then don't hold anymore. I put one of these in the upper left corner of the windsheild. http://www.ebay.com/itm/181171438994?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
