I've had my Escort 8500 for some time now and have had pretty good luck with it. Just last night while driving down to my beach house it started going off on KA band. I slowed down to the speed limit and two big trucks passed me going in the other direction, I thought it might be them at first. As we got further apart it was still going off but getting a bit stronger... Finally about 2 more miles down there road there's a local cop clocking right as the speed dropped to 35. But anyway, on to the question.
I've been looking to purchase another unit recently with "POP" even though I know that's not used widely but I still wanted a new toy. I just purchased the Bel RX55 online and I was wondering if I made a good decision, if this unit is an upgrade to the 8500. I didn't want to spend the money on RX65. I've been looking at Bel because of the unit size. With my 8500 in my truck it bouces often due to the length I assume. Any information would be great.
Oh, I saw the comparison sheet for all the detectors and saw that the RX55 wasn't much worse as far as performace went compared to the X50 and the RX65 but the plain 8500 wasn't listed so I'm kinda in the dark.
