Was talking to a co-worker of mine, hes into some of the same stuff I am, and is a techie type gadget lover like I am so i asked him if he runs a radar detector in his Mazda 6. He said he has one, but its old, and the suction cups are missing so he doesnt use it, but he really liked it when he could use it because it had a sweet display. I cant find much info on it, he showed it to me, its a pretty beastly lookin thing. An Escort Passport 5000 series. Display is LCD, regular LCD. When it gets a reading it puts a bar in the middle of the screen, to represent perfectly calibarated radar, then puts a bar where its picking up the signal in relation to that, and the bar grows toward the top of the display as the signal increases, he said he gets multiple signals as well, it puts as many bars on the screen as it gets signals (multiple bogeys on what LOOKED to have been a 10+ year old detector, given its bulk and general ugliness, tho im not sure). I was impressed though it really was an eyesore, but thought it was a cool unit and had a neat readout and way of displaying info vs some of the newer ones. I wondered if anyone had any experience or had heard of these 5000 series.
**EDIT: Just did a google search and found NOTHING as far as documentation or reviews, but ebay has 2 items if you want to see what it looks like, just search for "passport 5000". Maybe its not as old as it looks, it does all bands and laser... hmmmm :roll:
