Installation
Power Connection
Where to mount PASSPORT
For optimum detection performance, we
recommend the following:
To power PASSPORT, plug the small end of
the SmartCord, (telephone-type
connector) into the modular jack on
PASSPORT’s left side, and plug the lighter
plug adapter into your vehicle’s lighter
socket or accessory socket.
PASSPORT operates on 12 volts DC
negative ground only. The lighter plug
provided is a standard size and will work
in most vehicles. However, some vehicles
may require our optional sleeve to ensure
a snug fit. If so, simply call or visit our
website.
NOTE: depending on your vehicle,
the lighter socket power may either be
continuously on, or it may be switched
on and off with your ignition switch.
• Using the supplied windshield mount,
mount your PASSPORT level and high
enough on your front windshield to
provide a clear view of the road ahead. For
optimum rear detection, center the
detector between the driver and
passenger.
• Mount PASSPORT away from windshield
wipers, other solid objects, and heavily
tinted areas that might obstruct the radar
antenna or laser lens.
NOTE: In order for PASSPORT’s
GPS-powered features to work properly, the top case must have a clear
view of the sky.
Optional power cords
See the Accessories section for details on
our optional Direct-wire SmartCord.
Mounting Location
WARNING: ESCORT cannot anticipate the many ways PASSPORT can be
mounted. It is important that you
mount PASSPORT where it will not
impair your view nor present a
hazard in case of an accident.
6
Windshield Mount
Windshield Mount
When installed and adjusted properly,
the back top edge of PASSPORT should
rest solidly against your windshield.
PASSPORT’s EasyMount windshield
bracket is designed for unobtrusive and
hassle-free mounting.
Facing Down
1 Depress the adjustment button on the
top of PASSPORT (by the word ESCORT)
and slide the EasyMount bracket into the
slot until it is locked into the position
which best fits the angle of your windshield (there are four settings available).
For extremely horizontal or extremely
sloped windshields, the EasyMount
bracket can be bent.
Facing Up
User’s Tip
You can leave the EasyMount bracket in
place on your windshield, and easily
remove PASSPORT by pressing the adjustment button and sliding PASSPORT off the
mount. Again, be sure to position the
bracket where it won’t present a hazard in
the event of an accident. Additional
mounts are available.
CAUTION! A few vehicles
(including some Porsches) have
windshields with a soft anti-lacerative coating on the inside surface.
Use of suction cups will permanently mar this coating. Consult
your dealership or the vehicle
owner’s manual to determine if
your windshield has this coating.
To ensure that the suction cups
adhere to the windshield firmly, be sure to
keep both your windshield and the
suction cups clean.
2 To adjust PASSPORT on your windshield, use the EasyMount adjustment
button located on the top of the
PASSPORT, and slide PASSPORT forward
or backward to obtain a level horizontal
position.

Controls and Features
Power
If you prefer, you can select alternate
power-on indicators. See the Preferences
section for details.
To turn PASSPORT on or off, press the
power button on PASSPORT’s top case.
When you turn PASSPORT on, it goes
through a sequence of alerts.
If you prefer, you may change your
PASSPORT for a shorter power-on
sequence. See the Preferences section for
details.
GPS Signal Indicator
The GPS signal indicator provides a visual
indication that PASSPORT is receiving
satellite data.
NOTE: Satellite reception is
required to get the most out of your
PASSPORT 9500i. To receive satellite
data, the top of the detector must have
a clear view of the sky. See Mounting
Location for more details.
The GPS indicator will flash on and off
until it receives satellite data. Once
received, the icon will stop flashing and
remain on the display.
The GPS indicator also provides a
visual acknowledgement that the detector
is rejecting a signal that has been stored in
memory using the TrueLock feature. Once
a false alarm has been stored, the GPS indicator will rotate clockwise, indicating that
it is rejecting that signal.
Volume Control (VOL)
To increase or decrease the audio volume,
press and hold the (+) or (–) volume
control buttons located on the top case. A
sample alert tone will be generated, along
with a corresponding bar-graph on the
display. Once you have reached your
desired volume level, simply release the
button. This level will be stored in
memory.
If you prefer, you can also select
AutoVolume in Preferences. This feature
will increase the audio alert level automatically when the ambient noise in the
vehicle is high. See the Preferences
section for details.
Mute
Power-on Indication
The Mute button, located on PASSPORT’s
front panel and SmartCord, allows you to
silence the audio alert during a radar
encounter.
After PASSPORT’s start-up sequence is
complete the display will show the full
word: Highway, Auto, or City to indicate
which sensitivity mode is selected.
8
To mute the audio for a specific signal,
briefly press the Mute button. After that
radar encounter has passed, the mute will
automatically reset and the audio will alert
you to the next encounter.
Once a signal has been stored, the
detector will reject this signal the next
time you approach this area. (The GPS
indicator will rotate clockwise, providing
a visual indication that the signal is being
rejected).
To unlock a signal that has already
been stored, simply press and hold the
mute button while the GPS indicator is
rotating. The display will read: “Unlock?”.
Press the mute button again to unlock it
from memory.
AutoMute
Your PASSPORT has our patented
AutoMute feature. After PASSPORT alerts
you to a radar encounter at the volume you
have selected, the AutoMute feature will
automatically reduce the volume to a
lower level. This keeps you informed
without the annoyance of a continuous
full-volume alert.
If you prefer, you can turn the
AutoMute feature off. See the Preferences
section for details.
Sensitivity Switch (SEN)
The “SEN” button selects PASSPORT’s
sensitivity mode. We recommend the Auto
(AutoSensitivity) mode for most driving.
In the “Auto” mode, the 9500i
provides real-time radar performance
based on your vehicle speed. As your
vehicle speed increases, the radar sensitivity (X and K-band) is set to maximum
range. As the vehicle speed decreases, the
radar sensitivity (X and K-band only) is
minimized to further reduce unwanted
false alarms. Full sensitivity is maintained
on all other bands.
You can also select conventional
Highway and City modes. Highway mode
provides maximum sensitivity on all
bands. City mode reduces X-band sensitivity and full sensitivity is maintained on
all other bands. See the Preferences for
details.
TrueLock/GPS Filter
The “GPS” filter button turns PASSPORT’s
GPS-powered TrueLock feature on and off.
(default is on)
To lockout a false alert, press the mute
button three (3) times, (either on the
detector or the SmartCord) during the
alert.
Pressing the mute button the first
time will silence the audio. Pressing it a
second time will generate a prompt on the
display that will read: “Lockout?”. Press it
a third time to confirm that you want to
lock this signal out by location and
frequency. A “Stored” message will be
displayed.

Controls and Features
Brightness (BRT)
assign a label it, (“SPD TRAP” is the default
label). To change the label to “Camera” or
“Other” press the volume (+) or (–) buttons.
Once you’ve selected the label, press the
“MRK” button again.
Once you have marked the location,
PASSPORT will provide an alert approximately 1 mile in advance when your
vehicle is moving 50 mph or above. This
alert distance is reduced to approximately
a ½ mile when traveling below 50 mph.
NOTE: When a location is marked
the first time, you must travel at least
one mile away from that location to
receive an alert.
PASSPORT’s BRT button selects the brightness of PASSPORT’s display and keypad.
There are five settings: Minimum (BRT
MIN), Medium (BRT MED), Maximum
(BRT MAX), Auto (BRT AUTO) and Full
Dark (BRT DARK).
Brightness Auto (BRT AUTO) (default)
In this setting, the display and key-pad
brightness will automatically adjust based
on the ambient light in the vehicle.
BRT Dark (Full Dark Mode)
When you select the Dark mode with the
BRT switch, the display will not show any
visual alerts, (i.e. display or keypad) when
PASSPORT detects signals. Only the
audible alert will tell you of detected
signals.
In this mode, visual alerts can be seen
on the SmartCord in addition to the audio
alerts on the detector.
Mark Location (MRK)
The “MRK” button allows you to mark a
specific location and label it for future
reference. Once marked, PASSPORT will
provide an alert before you reach this area
any time you return. This can be
extremely useful when there are known
speed traps or camera locations that you
would like to remember .
To mark a particular location: Press
the “MRK” button. The display will read:
“Mark?”. Press the “MRK button again to
To unmark a location, simply press the
“MRK” button when you are receiving a
“marked location” alert. The display will
read: “Unmark?” Press the “MRK” again to
confirm. The display will read: “Unmarked”.
10
Audible Alerts
The coiled SmartCord is a special
power cord that has a power-on indicator
(which only lights up when the 9500i is
turned on), a bright alert light that warns
of radar or laser, and a convenient mute
button right on the plug. It’s perfect for
any car where reaching the detector’s
mute button on the windshield is a stretch.
For discreet night driving, put
PASSPORT in the Dark mode, and use the
SmartCord for your visual alerts. Other
drivers won’t know you have a detector.
An optional Direct-wire SmartCord is
also available. This version includes a
small display module which can be wired
directly into your electrical system, with a
10 foot straight cord to route to your
PASSPORT.
For more information or to order, call
us toll-free at 1-800-433-3487.
For Radar signals:
PASSPORT uses a Geiger-counter-like
sound to indicate the signal strength and
type of radar signal being encountered.
When you encounter radar, a distinct
audible alert will sound and occur faster
as the signal gets stronger. When the
signal is very strong, the audible alerts will
blend into a solid tone. This allows you to
judge the distance from the signal source
without taking your eyes from the road.
Each band has a distinct tone for easy
identification.
X-band = beep tone
K-band = raspy brap tone
Ka-band = double-brap tone
Ku-band = beep tone (same as X-band)
POP = solid brap tone
Speed Alert
For Laser and POP signals:
Since laser and POP signals are a
possible threat no matter how weak,
PASSPORT will provide a full alert for
these signals.
PASSPORT’s Speed Alert feature provides
a visual indication of your vehicle speed
during the first few seconds of an alert. This
allows you to instantly check your speed
without looking at your speedometer.
Speed Alert is displayed regardless of
your meter setting.
NOTE: When traveling 15 mph or
less, your speed will not be displayed.
If you prefer, you can turn the Speed
Alert feature off. See Preferences for
details.
SmartCord
PASSPORT’s power jack uses a telephonetype connector. This 4-conductor
connector only works with the coiled
SmartCord (included), or the optional
Direct-wire SmartCord.
11
Controls and Features
Signal Strength Meter
PASSPORT’s ExpertMeter simultaneously tracks up to 8 radar signals. It
provides detailed information on up to 2
Ka-band, 2 K-band, and 4 X-band signals.
ExpertMeter can help you spot a
change in your normal driving environment; for example, a traffic radar unit
being operated in an area where there are
normally other signals present.
The ExpertMeter is actually a miniature spectrum analyzer. It shows what
band each signal is on and its relative
signal strength.
PASSPORT’s display provides an intuitive
ultra-bright display of signal strength and
text messages.
PASSPORT’s standard bar-graph meter
provides information on a single radar
signal. If there are multiple signals present,
PASSPORT’s internal computer will determine which one is the most important
threat to display.
When PASSPORT detects radar, it
displays the band (X, K, Ka, or Ku), and a
precise bar-graph of the signal strength.
When PASSPORT detects a laser signal the
display will display “LASER.”
NOTE: If you are operating
PASSPORT in the Dark mode, the
display will not light when a signal is
detected—only the audio and the
flashing alert lamp on the SmartCord.
@6qq@qqMqqqq
Above is the ExpertMeter display if
PASSPORT was detecting 2 strong Kaband, 2 strong K-band, and 4 strong Xband signals.
As you can see, there are vertical lines
after each band designator. Each line
shows a signal being detected. The height
of each line shows the relative signal
strength of that signal.
NOTE: If you use ExpertMeter, the
brief signal shown in the power-on
sequence when you turn on your
PASSPORT will also be in ExpertMeter:
an X with a single vertical line.
ExpertMeter
PASSPORT’s ExpertMeter option is an
advanced display for experienced
detector users. Please use PASSPORT for a
few weeks to get familiar with its other
features before using ExpertMeter.
To use the ExpertMeter instead of the
bar graph signal strength meter, you must
select ExpertMeter in PASSPORT’s
Preferences (see pages 14-17).
12
SpecDisplay
A few more examples will help you
better see how the ExpertMeter works.
PASSPORT’S SpecDisplay option is also for
the experienced detector user. In this
mode, PASSPORT will display the actual
numeric frequency of the radar signal
being received.
@qMqq
Here ExpertMeter shows 1 strong K-band
signal, and three X-band signals, two
strong and one weak.
@')#&*%
@6qM
SpecDisplay shows one K-band signal at
24.150 gigahertz.
NOTE: Even long-time detector
users will require some amount of
time to get familiar with this new level
of information about detected signals.
Here ExpertMeter shows 1 strong Kaband signal, and three weak X-band
signals.
M
On very weak signals, there will be no
vertical line. This shows a very weak
X-band signal.
GPS Signal Indicator
PASSPORT’S GPS indicator will flash on
and off until the GPS satellite signals are
received. Once these signals are received,
the indicator will stop flashing and remain
on the screen.
This indicator also provides a visual
reference for known false alarms that you
have stored in memory using TrueLock.
Once you have stored a signal and drive
past that location again, this indicator will
spin clockwise to visually show that it is
detecting the signal, but will not alert.
ExpertMeter Details
The band designators (X, K, Ka) will
stay on the display for a few seconds after
the signal has passed. This allows you to
see what the unit detected, even on very
brief signals.
However, the vertical lines representing individual signals continuously
change (several times a second) to give
you a continuous instantaneous view of all
radar signals present.

Interpreting Alerts
Although PASSPORT has a comprehensive
warning system and this handbook is as
complete as we can make it, only experience will teach you what to expect from
your PASSPORT and how to interpret what
it tells you. The specific type of radar
being used, the type of transmission
(continuous or instant-on) and the location
of the radar source affect the radar alerts
you receive.
The following examples will give you
an introduction to understanding
PASSPORT’s warning system for radar and
laser alerts.
Alert
Explanation
PASSPORT begins to sound slowly, then the
rate of alert increases until the alert becomes
a solid tone. The Signal Meter ramps
accordingly.
You are approaching a continuous radar
source aimed in your direction.
PASSPORT emits short alerts for a few
seconds and then falls silent only to briefly
alert and fall silent again.
An instant-on radar source is being used
ahead of you and out of your view.
PASSPORT suddenly sounds a continuous
tone for the appropriate band received. All
segments in the Signal Strength Meter are lit.
An instant-on radar source or laser source is
being used nearby. This kind of alert
requires immediate attention!
A brief laser alert.
Laser is being used in the area. Because laser
is inherently difficult to detect, any laser
alert may indicate a source very close by.
PASSPORT receives weak signals. These
signals may be a little stronger as you
pass large, roadside objects. The signals
increase in frequency.
A moving patrol car with continuous radar is
overtaking you from behind. Because these
signals are reflected (reflections are
increased by large objects), they may or may
not eventually melt into a solid point even
when the patrol car is directly behind you.
PASSPORT alerts slowly for awhile and then
abruptly jumps to a strong alert.
You are approaching a radar unit concealed
by a hill or an obstructed curve.
20
Alert
Explanation
PASSPORT alerts intermittently. Rate and
strength of alerts may be consistent or vary
wildly.
A patrol car is travelling in front of you with
a radar source aimed forward. Because
signals are sometimes reflected off of large
objects and sometimes not, the alerts may
seem inconsistent.
PASSPORT alerts intermittently. Rate and
strength of signal increases with each alert.
A patrol car is approaching from the other
direction, sampling traffic with instant-on
radar. Such alerts should be taken seriously.
PASSPORT gives an X-band alert
intermittently.
You are driving through an area populated
with radar motion sensors (door openers,
burglar alarms, etc.). Since these transmitters are usually contained inside buildings or
aimed toward OR away from you, they are
typically not as strong or lasting as a real
radar encounter.
CAUTION: Since the characteristics of these alerts may be similar to
some of the preceding examples,
over-confidence in an unfamiliar
area can be dangerous. Likewise, if
an alert in a commonly traveled
area is suddenly stronger or on a
different band than usual, speed
radar may be set up nearby.
21
How Radar Works
How POP Works
How Radar Works
Because intrusion alarms and motion
sensors often operate on the same
frequency as X, and K-band radar, your
PASSPORT will occasionally receive nonpolice radar signals. Since these X-Band
transmitters are usually contained inside
of a building, or aimed toward the ground,
they will generally produce much weaker
readings than will a true radar encounter.
As you become familiar with the sources
of these pseudo alarms in your daily
driving, they will serve as confirmation
that your PASSPORT’s radar detection abilities are fully operational.
Traffic radar, which consists of microwaves, travels in straight lines and is easily
reflected by objects such as cars, trucks,
even guardrails and overpasses. Radar
works by directing its microwave beam
down the road. As your vehicle travels into
range, the microwave beam bounces off
your car, and the radar antenna looks for
the reflections.
Using the Doppler Principle, the radar
equipment then calculates your speed by
comparing the frequency of the reflection
of your car to the original frequency of the
beam sent out.
Traffic radar has limitations, the most
significant of these being that it typically
can monitor only one target at a time. If
there is more than one vehicle within
range, it is up to the radar operator to
decide which target is producing the
strongest reflection. Since the strength of
the reflection is affected by both the size
of the vehicle and its proximity to the
antenna, it is difficult for the radar operator to determine if the signal is from a
sports car nearby or a semi-truck several
hundred feet away.
Radar range also depends on the
power of the radar equipment itself.
The strength of the radar unit’s beam
diminishes with distance. The farther the
radar has to travel, the less energy it has
for speed detection.
How “POP” Works
“POP” mode is a relatively new feature for
radar gun manufacturers. It works by
transmitting an extremely short burst,
within the allocated band, to identify
speeding vehicles in traffic. Once the
target is identified, or “POPPED,” the gun
is then turned to its normal operating
mode to provide a vehicle tracking history,
(required by law).
NOTE: According to the operator’s
manual from the radar gun manufacturer, tickets should not be issued in
POP mode.
22
How Laser Works
How Laser (Lidar) Works
There are limitations to LIDAR
equipment. LIDAR is much more sensitive
to weather conditions than RADAR, and a
LIDAR gun’s range will be decreased by
anything affecting visibility such as rain,
fog, or smoke. A LIDAR gun cannot
operate through glass and it must be
stationary in order to get an accurate
reading. Because LIDAR must have a clear
line of sight and is subject to cosine error
(an inaccuracy, which increases as the
angle between the gun and the vehicle,
increases) police typically use LIDAR
equipment parallel to the road or from an
overpass. LIDAR can be used day or night.
Laser speed detection is actually LIDAR
(Light Detection and Ranging). LIDAR
guns project a beam of invisible infrared
light. The signal is a series of very short
infrared light energy pulses which move
in a straight line, reflecting off your car
and returning to the gun. LIDAR uses
these light pulses to measure the distance
to a vehicle. Speed is then calculated by
measuring how quickly these pulses are
reflected given the known speed of light.
LIDAR (or laser) is a newer technology
and is not as widespread as conventional
radar, therefore, you may not encounter
laser on a daily basis. And unlike radar
detection, laser detection is not prone to
false alarms. Because LIDAR transmits a
much narrower beam than does radar, it is
much more accurate in its ability to
distinguish between targets and is also
more difficult to detect. AS A RESULT,
EVEN THE BRIEFEST LASER ALERT
SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. .
23
How SWS Works
How SWS Works
Since Safety radar technology is
relatively new, and the number of
transmitters in operation is not yet widespread, you will not receive Safety signals
on a daily basis. Do not be surprised if you
encounter emergency vehicles, road
hazards and railroad crossings that are
unequipped with these transmitters. As
Safety transmitters become more
prevalent (the number of operating transmitters is growing every day), these Safety
radar signals will become more common.
For more information and details
about SWS safety radar, visit their web site
at www.safetyradar.com.
Safety Warning System, or SWS, uses a
modified K-band radar signal. The SWS
safety radar system has 64 possible
messages (60 currently allocated). The
SWS messages your PASSPORT can display
are listed on the facing page.
From the factory, your PASSPORT is
programmed with SWS decoding ON. If
SWS is used in your area, your PASSPORT
will display the safety messages associated
with the signal. If you do not wish to
detect this system, use the Preferences
feature to turn PASSPORT’s SWS decoding
OFF.
NOTE: Some of the safety
messages have been condensed, so
that each message can be displayed
on one or two screens on PASSPORT’s
eight-character display.

How GPS Works
How GPS Works
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is
made up of twenty four orbiting satellites
and was developed by the U.S. military.
There are at least four satellites visible at
any given time every day.
A GPS receiver is designed to locate
and receive data from four of these satellites. This data includes the distance to
your location from each of the satellites.
Once the distance from each satellite is
known, the receiver can calculate and
pinpoint your exact location.
