Mute Button Briefly press this button (next to the display) to silence the audio for a specific alert. (The audio will alert you to the next encounter.) Page 9 5 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. Level mounting 7 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. 9 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. 13 How to use Preferences An example Here is how you would turn PASSPORT’s AutoMute feature off. There are 9 user-selectable Preferences so you can customize your 9500i for your specific driving needs. The buttons labeled “MRK” and “BRT” are also used to enter Preferences, REVIEW your current settings, and to CHANGE any settings as desired.

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. 24 SWS Text Messages 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 Highway Construction or Maintenance Ldg`OdcZ6]ZVY GdVY8adhZY6]ZVY$;daadl9Zidjg 7g^Y\Z8adhZY6]ZVY$;daadl9Zidjg =^\]lVnLdg`8gZlh6]ZVY Ji^a^inLdg`8gZlh6]ZVY 6aaIgV[[^X;daadl9Zidjg6]ZVY 6aaIgjX`h;daadl9Zidjg6]ZVY 6aaIgV[[^X:m^i6]ZVY G^\]iAVcZ8adhZY6]ZVY 8ZciZgAVcZ8adhZY6]ZVY AZ[iAVcZ8adhZY6]ZVY For future use Highway Hazard Zone Advisory HiVi^dcVgnEda^XZKZ]^XaZ6]ZVY IgV^c6eegdVX]^c\$6i8gdhh^c\ AdlDkZgeVhh6]ZVY 9gVlWg^Y\ZJe DWhZgkZ9gVlWg^Y\ZLZ^\]iA^b^i GdX`Ha^YZ6gZV6]ZVY HX]ddaOdcZ6]ZVY GdVYCVggdlh6]ZVY H]Vge8jgkZ6]ZVY EZYZhig^Vc8gdhh^c\6]ZVY 9ZZg$BddhZ8gdhh^c\ 7a^cY$9ZV^aY6gZV HiZZe<gVYZ6]ZVY$IgjX`JhZAdl<ZVg 6XX^YZci6]ZVY EddgGdVYHjg[VXZ6]ZVY HX]dda7jhAdVY^c\$JcadVY^c\ CdEVhh^c\OdcZ 9Vc\Zgdjh>ciZghZXi^dc6]ZVY HiVi^dcVgn:bZg\ZcXnKZ]^XaZ6]ZVY For future use 25 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 Weather Related Hazards =^\]L^cY6]ZVY HZkZgZLZVi]Zg6]ZVY =ZVkn;d\6]ZVY =^\]LViZg$;addY^c\6]ZVY >XZDc7g^Y\Z6]ZVY >XZDcGdVY6]ZVY 7adl^c\9jhi6]ZVY 7adl^c\HVcY6]ZVY 7a^cY^c\HcdlL]^iZdji6]ZVY For future use Travel Information/Convenience GZhi6gZV6]ZVY GZhi6gZVL^i]HZgk^XZ6]ZVY ')=djg;jZaHZgk^XZ6]ZVY >cheZXi^dcHiVi^dcDeZc >cheZXi^dcHiVi^dc8adhZY GZYjXZYHeZZY6gZV6]ZVY HeZZYA^b^i:c[dgXZY =VoVgYdjhBViZg^Vah:m^i6]ZVY 8dc\Zhi^dc6]ZVY$:meZXi9ZaVn :meZXi&%B^cjiZ9ZaVn :meZXi'%B^cjiZ9ZaVn :meZXi(%B^cjiZ9ZaVn :meZXi&=djg9ZaVn IgV[[^X6aZgi$IjcZ6BGVY^d EVnIdaa6]ZVY IgjX`h:m^iG^\]i IgjX`h:m^iAZ[i For future use Fast/Slow Moving Vehicles :bZg\ZcXnKZ]^XaZ>cIgVch^i Eda^XZ>cEjghj^i DkZgh^oZKZ]^XaZ>cIgVch^i HadlBdk^c\KZ]^XaZ 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. 26 Service Service Procedure Out Of Warranty Repairs If Your PASSPORT ever needs service, please follow these simple steps: For out of warranty repairs, include prepayment in the amount you were quoted by the ESCORT Customer Service Representative.
