The drive to 'Connect & Protect' is based on industry experts' agreement that using ESCORT's ticket protection app in combination with the industry's best radar detector, the PASSPORT 9500ix, offers the most comprehensive and complete radar and laser alert notification available.

The new 'Connect & Protect' combination of the world's best radar detector and ticket protection app helps drivers to drive safer by giving them the most advanced and complete driving information of what is in their driving environment.
