Two of the most popular accessories in the vehicle now are GPS navigators and Radar Detectors. Escort has just announced their newest in state-of-the-art radar/laser detection, 3D GPS navigation, and speed limit data with the Passport iQ.
Claiming to be the first to integrate both GPS and radar detection, Escort has included many additional features on the Passport iQ. But is it worth the $650 price tag?
Multi-screen options allow users to choose what information appears as well as the color scheme preferred. Navigators will enjoy the 5" TFT color touchscreen, which showcases the main menu, detection and map screens crisply and clearly.
The GPS mode offers turn-by-turn voice navigation for North America, with easy to read 3D maps and lane assistance. The map view shows current location and routing information on a
color-coded map. Routes, residential roads, higways and parks all have
their own designated colors, making it easy for the driver to glance at
the screen to gain their bearings.
While in detection mode the mulitple screens track and display up to four different radar signals. Escort has award-winning all-band protection, as well as it's patented Defender database; full of red light camera and speed camera locations throughout North America.
The Escort Passport iQ is designed to reduce unwanted tickets, but also to guide users safely to their destination. Escort is well on their way to developing an all-in-one device for drivers.
