Important Installation Warnings
For the easiest, trouble-free installation, install the
interface first and wire it to a 12-volt switched
circuit.
1 It is recommended that you have a professional
install your new PASSPORT. Installation of this
system requires experience and expertise in
automotive electronics. If you are unfamiliar with
automotive electronics, car audio specialists and
many car dealers can install your PASSPORT for you.
Then, before installing the other components, plug
all of them into the interface and power up the unit
to confirm proper operation.
2 Attempting to install this product without
expertise in automotive electronics installation can
cause personal injury or damage to your vehicle.
Please read these instructions in their entirety
before starting your installation.
3 If your vehicle is damaged during installation its
safety systems may be compromised, which could
cause personal injury or property damage.
4 Improper installation may void PASSPORT’s
warranty.
Performance Warning
To get the best performance possible, the
mounting location of the radar receiver is
critical. Although radar signals will pass
through some types of plastic, mounting the
radar receiver so that it has a clear “view” of the
road will ensure maximum warning.
Since Laser signals will not pass through
objects, including most plastics, it is critical that
the Laser Shifters are mounted perfectly level
and have an unobstructed “view” of the road.

Installation Tips
While following the steps throughout this manual,
please refer to the following recommendations for a
professional, trouble-free installation:
1 Determine the best location for the radar receiver.
The best location is typically under the bumper, or
inside the front grill of the vehicle. For the best radar
performance, install the radar receiver horizontally,
with a clear “view” of the road.
2 Entry points into the interior may be located
behind the plastic liner in the wheel well, fuse box,
or unused grommets.
3 There are often many existing entry points at the
rear of the vehicle as well:
• Gaskets behind license plates, around illumination
lamps, and near trunk lid hinges.
• Tail light wiring gaskets are often easily accessible
and large enough to add cables.
4 If there are no suitable openings, it will be
necessary to drill a hole through the firewall:
a. Thoroughly investigate all locations before
drilling any holes! Ensure no wires, hoses, or other
vehicle components will be damaged.
b. On vehicles with automatic transmissions, there
is often a location for mounting a clutch pedal. This
location is typically an ideal location to drill.
c. Before drilling, cover the surface being drilled
with masking tape to prevent damage to the anticorrosion coating in the event the drill bit slips.
d. Drill a 13/32" or 7/16" hole.
5
5 When pulling the inline grommet to the entry
point, apply rubbing alcohol to a section of the
cable to reduce friction and quickly pull the
grommet along the length.
6 The cables of units mounted at the rear of the
vehicle can generally be routed through the trunk
compartment and concealed under trim panels
quite easily. If necessary, the cables can also be
routed under the vehicle and through an opening in
the firewall. Be sure to secure cables away from
moving parts and hot surfaces.
7 A quality crimper for modular connectors can be
used to cut cables to length and replace the
connector. Removing the connectors may also
make it easier to enter the vehicle’s interior through
existing openings.
Note:
• Only an exact replacement for the standard
connector can be used. Do not attempt to cut
the wires unless the proper connector and
crimping tools are available.
• Connectors cannot be reused.
• Do not cut the cable too short! Provide
enough cable to route to the Interface and add
a couple extra feet to ease installation
• Install the new connector such that its locking
tab is on the same side as the color coded stripe
on the cable.
• Do not attempt to cut the cable and splice the
wires together.
8 When drilling or cutting interior trim panels (for
instance, when installing the Concealed Installation
Alert Indicator or the optional Display Bezel), first
cover the surface of the panel with masking tape to
prevent accidental scratches.

5 Find a suitable entry point into the vehicle’s
interior. Refer to the Installation Tips section.
1 Install the Interface under the dash using
supplied zip-ties.
Note:
Do Not Mount In Engine Compartment.
2 Connect black wire (-) to ground, and red-striped
wire (+) to a switched 12-volt supply. (If PASSPORT
is left in the “on” position, it will automatically
power on and off with the ignition). Use blue 3M
connector (provided) to tap into an existing circuit if
needed.
3 Radar Receiver, Front Laser Shifters, Rear Laser
Shifter, Display, Controller, GPS Antenna, Speaker,
Concealed Alert Indicator and Radio Mute Cable all
plug into the Interface. The connectors are labeled
and are color-coded to match a stripe on each cord.
Be sure that all components are plugged into the
correct connector before applying power to unit.
4 It is recommended that after the Interface is
installed and connected to power, all other
components are plugged in and tested for proper
operation before completing the installation.
1 Determine the best location for the Radar
Receiver. The best location is typically under the
bumper or inside the front grille of the vehicle. For
the best radar performance install the Radar
Receiver with the label facing up and the arrow
pointing forward, and provide a clear “view” of the
road.
6 Feed the harness into the vehicle’s interior and to
the Interface. Plug into the connector labeled “Front
Receiver.”
7 If entering through a drilled hole, pull the
grommet on the harness until the end sticks
through the hole. From inside the vehicle, pull
grommet through until it seals against the outer
surface.
C
2 Using the supplied U-shaped bracket and the
right-angle mounting bracket, mark the mounting
location. Drill pilot holes in the vehicle if necessary.
3 Mount the Radar Receiver using the supplied
hardware. It is recommended that the Radar
Receiver is secured to the brackets first, and then
the brackets and Receiver mounted to the vehicle.
4 Plug the Radar Receiver into the harness and
route the cable toward the interior of the vehicle.
Secure the cable with zip-ties. Although
waterproof, it is best to locate the inline connector
in a dry area protected from moving parts, road
debris, and hot surfaces such as the radiator and
radiator hoses.
2 The Laser Shifters must be mounted horizontally.
For best performance, ensure that the surface
marked “This Side Up” faces upward and is perfectly
level with the surface of the road.
3 The preinstalled mounting clamps can be used to
easily secure the Laser Shifter to the slats in a grille
or the edge of an opening.
• To tighten clamp jaws, insert a 9/64” hex key into
the screws on the front of each clamp and turn
clockwise.
• To adjust the angle or remove the clamps, use the
screw on the side of each clamp.

1 Determine the best locations for the Laser
Shifters. For optimum performance, install each
Laser Shifter on either side of the license plate, with
an unobstructed “view” of the road. If possible,
mount each Laser Shifter halfway between the
license plate and the corner of the vehicle (see
photo below).
