Working in tandem with the loaded Defender database and AutoLearn, the Passport Max's DSP should only beep for real threats, once you've given it ample time to learn your area. During my testing, I only ran into a few false alerts -- including a pair of prolonged bursts of K band detection and a handful of chirps for X band here and there -- but largely the system was blissfully quiet, even as I trolled around areas with automatic door openers that I know usually trigger false positives. Because the Max only has a rough idea of where you are, and doesn't include maps, it would sometimes give audible alerts for approaching red-light cameras on surface roads when driving on an adjacent highway, which was annoying, but not a deal breaker. I'd rather have a few unneeded alerts than end up with a ticket for coasting through on yellow. Whenever the Max starts beeping, a selectable AutoMute function lowers the volume automatically after a second or two to keep the detector from being too obnoxious once it's grabbed your attention.

When the Escort Passport Max came to be in , it was reviewed positively by the radar detector-using community. There were features incorporated into it by Escort that were not in other models previously, such as GPS, a digital signal processor DSP , and a better suction cup. But it was not too long after that a follow-up—the Passport Max 2—was released. As is customary with numbered models, the Max 2 was intended as an improvement on its predecessor and a sign of Escort listening to its customers: it came out equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, effectively becoming Escort Live compatible.
