Did it make it for 3 years before being discontinued and how many updates did those customers get? They should focus on Radar and sell the system with a radar only option. Look at the current radar detectors 3-4 years and they are discontinued. $3500 is a steep price to be outdated and no longer receiving updates
Our current top of the line installed system, the Passport 9500ci, has been available since 2008. It was the first detector that we offered with our infamous AutoLearn technology! We expect the same lifespan for the MAX Ci systems.
As laser shifter technology advanced we provided an upgrade path to our Passport 9500ci customers. The same will be true for the MAX Ci systems. Nobody can anticipate the technology that will be coming to police radar and LIDAR technology. Some of these advances may be able to be dealt with through software updates while others may require replacing hardware.
