Now here’s one of those products where I have to wonder why it took so long for someone to come out with it?!  A combination radar detector and GPS navigation system in one device, now that’s a good idea!

ESCORT Inc., leading manufacturer of premium automotive electronic accessories and the world’s best radar and laser detectors, is presenting the new PASSPORT iQ™, the world’s first and only integrated radar detector and GPS NAV driving accessory, at the 2011 CES Digital Experience on Jan 5th (7 – 9 PM, Caesars Palace) during CES (Consumer Electronics Show).

PASSPORT iQ™ establishes the standard for protecting consumers from unwanted tickets and guiding them safely to their destination.

"We are excited about having the opportunity to demonstrate our new PASSPORT iQ™ to high-profile media attendees.  They will experience first-hand the first convergence of state-of-the-art radar and laser detection, red light and speed camera notifications, speed limit information, GPS navigation and more," said Ron Gividen, ESCORT PR/Media manager.

PASSPORT iQ™ is based on ESCORT’s test-winning PASSPORT 9500ix™ GPS-enabled radar and laser detector.  The new PASSPORT iQ™ takes the driver interface for radar detection to a higher level by presenting a user-friendly choice of visual and audio alerts while offering easy-to-read 3D maps, voice-guided turn-by-turn directions and lane-assist—all of which provide comprehensive directions and updates for driving anywhere, anytime.  The intelligent iQ™ can notify drivers if they go over posted speed limits.  Red light cameras and speed traps appear on-screen over their mapped location.
