Question IQ Registration on South América

Hi, I live in Brazil an bought a IQ for me at Best Buy.
I received it yesterday, very nice, and I will use only it as detector.
So, I would like to know how can I to do the registration from here to receive firmware and radar bands updates by sdcard?
On Product Registration page at EscortRadar website do not have a option for International registration in South America. Why that?
Some one kwon about this?

Thanks a lot and best regards.

If your Passport iQ looks like this with a black faceplate then it has the latest firmware already installed:



Registering your Passport iQ will give you access to download Detector Tools which is used to upgrade your iQ's firmware. Defender camera database updates are only for North America too. Passport iQ is designed for use in North America. There really is no need to update your iQ. You will not notice any difference as long as yours has a black faceplate.

Map updates come on an SD card, which you can order by calling us, but the maps are only for North America so they will not help you.

If your Passport iQ has a silver faceplate then enter our address to register and download Detector Tools to update the firmware. Our address is: 5440 West Chester Rd, West Chester, OH 45069.

My IQ really have a black faceplate, identical at this picture.
So, is not necessary to do a registration in order to can order of a SD card when I want? I travel to USA some times on vacation, so I will use them in USA some times.

Thanks a lot.

You are welcome to order maps for your iQ but they are only for North America (USA and Canada). You will not notice any difference using it in South America with new maps. You already have the latest software/firmware installed on it.

Registering it will start the 90 day subscription to update the red light and speed camera database on your iQ. I would wait until before you are traveling to the USA to register it (using our address) then download Detector Tools and update the database before you leave.

Default Detector tools

I have the silver face plate, I also have a 9500ci. Is det tools different for the iq? I used det tools that I use for the DI and seemed to get the update.

With Detector Tools you can only get software updates, no map updates.
Map updates are sent on SD Card.
