Escort Passport IQ Review


Passport iQ - GPS + Radar Detector all in one? Yes please!

I recently acquired a Passport iQ by Escort, which acts as a fully functioning GPS unit and a radar detector both in one sleek, easy to use package. I've been using the iQ for about 3 months now while driving all over the US and Canada for work and I have not only avoided some speed traps but have found my destination each and every time thanks to this device!

I use the windshield mount which is sturdy and swivels so that the screen can be used easily by both the driver and the passenger. I find the load times of the directions to be fast and accurate while the radar feature is easy to use and allows me to "lock out" false signals that I keep picking up on the way to and from home and work.

One of the best features of the IQ is that because it looks like a normal windshield mount GPS unit, the cops have no idea it's a radar detector (which is handy because where I live radar detectors are illegal)!
The Passport iQ is awesome and I recommend it to anyone who needs a GPS unit and or fully functioning radar detector with all the goodies.

Re: Escort Passport IQ Review

Does the IQ tell you how many radar signals there are and which direction they are coming from?

Nope, but it is the only radar detector that tells you where the camera speedtraps are. It is the only radar detector that integrates with GPS, so it can eliminate false alarms.

If it could tell the direction and number of bogies, it would be the best radar detector on the planet. It still sounds like a very capable unit.

I might be wrong but in 'expert mode' it will show multiple bands at once including their frequency, would this be equivalent to showings 'bogies' liKe a V1?



I'm 99.69% sold on the iQ. Going to wait for blick Friday or stupid Monday and get one somewheres.

Re: Escort Passport IQ Review

I picked up the Escort smart radar one week after the release this year and have no regret. I love the escort live feature and the way it connects to the rear view mirror harness for power so I don't have any wires hanging infront of my windshield. Really really clean installation it sits up behind my mirror and connects via blue tooth to my iphone. I did not need a GPS so this was the way to go for me. I am not a salesman for escort, the smart radar is just that good.
