New Detector in the works from Escort?

Looks like Escort registered a new domain recently....


Which leads me to believe a new Passport Detector is on its way.  Based on the name Passport Max that they recently registered makes me think that it could be a replacement for the 9500ix which has been out some time.  Maybe their Maximum sensitive radar detector to date or maybe a GPS enabled detector with the Redline's sensitivity? Guess we will have to wait a few days and see what's its all about.

The new AL Priority is getting close!

The new AL Priority & Website are being finalized. All US approvals needed are in place. Getting very close to release.   AL Priority will have online updating to avoid OS/version compatibilities so you save file to any USB thumb drive for easy loading on the AL Priority.

AL Priority will be sold as Parking Sensors, The Boxes, Manuals, Website Etc. will all reflect this. It will operate as a parking sensor 100% of the time that it is on.

Several weeks ago we had the product in hand and tested it thoroughly and its an exceptional product.  The possibilities are endless with the add on capabilities on this unit.  (More will be revealed in time)

The new AL Priority website is being tested and should be online in the next 1-2 weeks.  Since some leaked photo's have made it to the internet I was authorized to release some original photo's of the product.

New Expert Software vs. V1 Radar Detectors

Lots of comparisons of  these two detectors lately and it looks from the results of many tests that the Redline is the winner.  Nine from the Escort Radar Forum has done extensive testing with results found here.  Also many individual tests have been performed and the updated Redline has taken the spot of the longest radar windshield mounted detector.  Our results will be posted on our top radar detector picks page.  For Highway driving the Redline is the king but if you are heavy into city driving the Escort 9500ix is still the one to get.
