I have been considering getting the Escort Passport 9500ci and installing it myself (probably run me about $1200-$1500 depending on where I buy it). However, for the last week I have been trying out the 'Waze' app on my iphone (which is FREE) and I have to say, I'm really freakin impressed. So much so that I might just forget about the Escort Passport. While I understand it's apples vs oranges, I think about the reason why I would get the Escort - to detect cops and avoid speeding tickets. I was intrigued about how the Escort can hook up to your mobile phone and connect with other Escort users to automatically sync up detected radars, etc. But Waze does the same thing. And more. Obviously it's relying in it's user base to be accurate and report police and traffic incidents because Waze has nothing to do with radar/laser detection, but DAMN! - since I started using it for the last week it's been spot on. I suspect the user base of Waze is so large that there are enough users reporting events (cops, disabled vehicles, etc) on all the major highways. It has bluetooth integration so I get an audio warning about approaching speed traps. 'police reported ahead' or something like that comes out over my speakers. That's just awesome! I know a lot of you have been getting the Escort Passport installed, but have any of you tried Waze? What's your opinion of it?
