already have this with another escort radar. it makes using it so much easier when you don't have to reach up to windshield to mute radar, just mount on top of steering column with supplied sticky tape/Velcro and can be easily operated without taking eyes off road. [ perry  Nov 17, 2017 ]

Q
how long is the cord that needs to be run to power? i have a truck with the battery in the bed. will this be long enough to reach?

A
No u will have to add wire
[ CHAD  Apr 15, 2016 ]
A
Chad, The cord will not likely reach to the bed of your truck. BUT, consider getting the power off of a switched source. In doing so the unit will be off when you turn the truck off and when you return and turn the key on, the escort returns to the state it was in when you powered down. I think a much better way to use the unit.
[ Gary  Apr 15, 2016 ]
Q
Do I need a smarcord if I have a Passport Max 2 connected to my phone via Bluetooth. Can I do muting, etc. from the phone?
[ Jeff  Mar 25, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You do not have to have a Smart Cord to be able to mute the system. The Passport Max 2 has an Auto Mute feature so it will automatically reduce the volume after the initial audile aler. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
