SEMA 'Best Radar Detector' Winner PASSPORT® Max(TM) on Public View at Engadget on December 5

San Francisco public event to include demonstration of award-winning radar detector and MediaFlair™ WiFi® Sharing Accessory

SAN FRANCISCO, – ESCORT Inc. (, recent winner of the industry's top honor, SEMA Show 'Best New Product', is demonstrating the category's best radar detector, the new PASSPORT® Max™ High Definition windshield mount radar / laser detector at this week's Engadget show in San Francisco. ESCORT will also be presenting its award winning MediaFlair™ WiFi® Sharing Accessory.

"Key industry experts including SEMA, Popular Mechanics and SML independent test labs continue to rate ESCORT as the leading provider of the best radar detectors available," said Ron Gividen, ESCORT PR Director. "Our new PASSPORT Max™ helps drivers to drive safer by giving them unprecedented driving awareness with more than an order of magnitude performance enhancement above any technology before," he added.

At the nation's premiere new product event, the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas several weeks ago, ESCORT's enormously popular PASSPORT® Max™ High Definition radar & laser detector overwhelmingly wowed SEMA show judges and attendees. ESCORT earned three major SEMA show awards for PASSPORT Max™ and a major industry media award for the new MediaFlair™ WiFi® Sharing Accessory.

The international SEMA judges name the High Definition PASSPORT Max™ 'Best New Product' 2013 SEMA Show and the unit received a Popular Mechanics 'Editor's Choice' Award for Best New Product 2013 and also a 2013 SEMA Show 'Global Media Award'.

PASSPORT Max™ uses advanced Digital Signal Processing to scan for radar threats fifty times faster than any other detector. This dramatic increase in speed delivers a corresponding leap in detection capability and range allowing PASSPORT Max™ to set three new industry marks: fastest response time; longest reception range; and best sensitivity for detecting never-before-seen low level signals.

ESCORT has also received recognition for the new MediaFlair™ personal sharing accessory in the form of a SEMA Show 'Global Media Award". Using WiFi®, MediaFlair™ streams personal content to smartphones, tablets and more by using a companion interface app - load music, movies, photos and documents onto the included SD card and then use MediaFlair™ as a portable, wireless data and media sharing hub.

The San Francisco Engadget event is scheduled for tomorrow evening, December 5(th), 7-10 pm, at the Temple Nightclub - 540 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA 94105. ESCORT will be demonstrating both recent award-winning products, the PASSPORT Max™ HD detector and the MediaFlair™ WiFi hub at open-to-the-public national show.
