The Escort Passport Qi45 - A Customer-Driven Installation Solution
The Escort PASSPORT Qi45 was developed after months of consumer and dealer research that revealed a majority of radar users would prefer an integrated, affordable radar and laser detector which was very easy to install. With that kind of demand, our team of engineers went to work.

Introducing the Escort Passport Qi45 (or "Quick Install" as we call it internally), a fully integrated, high performance radar and laser detector system. It offers the convenience of built-in discreet security yet installs in dramatically less time and with fewer components than all other integrated detection systems.

Installation Time Significantly Reduced
Most custom installed systems require a significant investment in time for installation, up to 6 hours depending on the level of customization and vehicle type. The Passport Qi45 was designed to be installed quicker than any other custom installed radar detector unit on the market. You can do it yourself or contact us to learn more about our nationwide network of professionals offering worry-free affordable installation.

Extreme Radar Protection
The new Escort Passport Qi45 radar detection system offers the award winning performance you have come to expect from Escort.

The Escort Passport Qi45 features:

  • Blistering all-band protection
  • Discreet installation to protect from theft
  • Fully integrated with the convenience of auto-on at vehicle start up
  • Advanced digital signal processing
  • Auto sensitivity mode automatically reduces false alarms
  • EZ preferences for customizing user settings

Add on a Laser Shifter Pack
Like everything else we do at ESCORT, we were thinking ahead. That's why we're announcing a new optional "Qi Shifter Pack" for $249.95 which allows you to easily add Laser Shifting technology to the Qi45 at any time. Simply plug in these shifters (front only) to the front radar receiver and increase your overall level of protection.

The PASSPORT Qi45 - ESCORTs Continuing Leading Role
The Escort PASSPORT Qi45 offers award winning performance in a discreet custom installed unit that combines traditional connectors, cables and previously separated functionality into a compact, easy-connect, cost effective system. Qi45 provides the smart answer to your custom-installed detector needs and is backed by our team of experts.

Fantastic Unit, Great Serice from bestdetectors
i installed this unit on my 2007 Ranger. a full write up is here > escortradarforum dot com slash forums slash showthread.php?t=3823 The personalized service from bestradar was great, I actually received my unit the next day. The Qi45 was very easy to install and works great! I will install the Qi45 that has GPS in my other car soon. The Qi45 is very customizable, and is not intrusive. great bang for the buck

Great Detector But..
Easy install, not too many false alarms, the led is way too bright, it would have been better if it was off when no signal detected and on when detected, instead its green all the time, and its really bright! also the speaker is located on the main unit making it hard to hear since the unit is mounted under my dash, It would have been great if the speaker was remote as well, like the LED.. 5 stars still, but could use a few minor improvements

Great and compact
I drive a small roadster and wanted a radar detector that did not take up much space and the Qi45 seems to work the same as my sons Escort 8500-x50. It took about me about 1.5 hours to install. I am happy with it and recommend it to anyone who wants a great radar detector without having something on your windshield. Bottom Line, it works great, it was relatively easy to install, but best of all it is very small and does not intrude in the car interior. That made it worth the extra price.
