Here’s a teardown of the GT-7. It is indeed essentially a Max with different clothing. (Max2 teardown here.)

Escort Passport Max2 Review

If you’d like to learn more about the Escort Passport Max2 radar detector, here’s my Max2 review video.

The Max2 is basically designed to be an easy to use, plug and play radar detector that does just about everything for you with little to no setup.
