Windshield Mount
PASSPORT’s EasyMount windshield bracket is
designed for unobtrusive and hassle-free
Controls & Features
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.
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.
Using the supplied windshield mount, position your
PASSPORT level and high enough on your front
windshield to provide a clear view of the road ahead.
To ensure that the suction cups adhere to the
windshield firmly and be sure to keep both your
windshield and the suction cups clean. For optimum
detection performance, we recommend the
following on where to mount PASSPORT:
1 Depress the release button on the top of
PASSPORT (by the word PASSPORT) 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. However, we suggest that
you do not do this when the bracket is
connected to the detector.
• Center of windshield between driver and passenger.
• Ensure clear view of road ahead and sky above.
• Avoid windshield wipers and heavily tinted areas.
• For optimum rear detection, center the
detector between the driver and passenger.
2 To adjust PASSPORT on your windshield, use the
EasyMount release button located on the top of
the PASSPORT, and slide PASSPORT forward or
backward to obtain a level position.
