Congrats on the new detector! Is this essentially an X70 plus integrated Bluetooth? If so, what's the difference between this and the Passport?

The only functional difference between X80 and Passport is the X80 uses Bluetooth Smart technology (which requires a different pairing process on iPhone).

Ah gotcha, similar to the updated Max360's then. Thank you for clarifying.

If that's the case though, why was the Passport relaunched then? It's the same thing as the X80 with previous gen BT and a $50 higher MSRP, right? I don't understand its purpose in the lineup. If anything, I think continuing to sell both the X70 and X80 at different pricepoints would make more sense.

We have many retailers who carry our products. To demonstrate that the product they are offering is truly an Escort product, we will continue to list them on our website after we no longer offer them.

That does help, yes, but you also have many now discontinued products listed on your site too. I guess I don't understand the reason to bring back the original Passport now that the X80 is available.

Oh.. it sounded like it was reintroduced according to this thread: http://escortradarforum.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=15909

Checking out your website now, the X70 says it's been discontinued while the Passport is simply on backorder. The Passport is no longer listed in the lineup of current detectors though. Is it actually discontinued now but the website hasn't yet been updated?
