Default Still works after >20 years

I was cleaning out my garage and found an old Passport in a box of stuff I had taken out of a car years ago. I don't know how old the Passport is exactly, though I know I used it in a car I sold in 2001. It is over 20 years old.

I have a Redline for my GT350, so I put the Passport in my 2001 Bullitt to try it out. To my surprise and delight, IT WORKS!

Though "Beep!" just tells me there is some kind of radar out there somewhere.

That is great, however I do not recommend using the original Passport radar detector. It will not detect Ka radar which is quite popular today.

Oh . . . okay. Thx. Ka is about 98% of what the cops use around here.

It won't do laser either. It's an old X and K band unit.

Still, I think that it's pretty cool that it still works.

I have one, myself, but I wouldn't dare powering it up. It's a "collector" piece for me.
