When the PASSPORT 8500 X50 radar detector was introduced, it was instantly acclaimed "The World's Best."

The PASSPORT 8500 X50 delivers a vicious 40 percent performance improvement. It has a sophisticated new look and includes a fitted travel case and convenient SmartCord.
Hailed as the most revolutionary radar/laser detector ever
The Passport 8500 X50's "V-Tuned" radar receiver provides extreme detection range on all police radar, conventional and "instant-on" radar, including the POP mode radar threat, X-Band, and up to 50 percent 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.
