Well I hope this is the first and last problem. Got in my car in the grocery store parking lot and started my car. Then I powered up the STI and it went through it's power on squence. After I powered on the STI it started alerting Ka7 it also began to alert the K band from the grocery store automatic doors, the K band stopped alerting after I left the parking lot. I looked everywhere for the source of the Ka and coud not find it. I left the store parking lot and drove on several roads over 2 miles away the whole time the STI was still alerting Ka7. So I finally powered the STI off and then back on again and the Ka alert stopped.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR A $450 RADAR DETECTOR TO HAVE THIS KIND OF PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This better be the last poblem I have with it. I was hoping that Beltronics & Escort (Belscort) would leave their piss poor quality issues they have had with previous detectors in the past and thought maybe the STI would be of a higher quality, but I guess this is not the case!
WARNING TO ANYONE CONSIDERING BUYING ESCORT OR BELTRONICS (BELSCORT) PRODUCTS, THEY HAVE QUALITY ISSUES!!!!!
I have had multiple problems with my X50 and I am now on my 3rd one, it had to be replaced TWICE by Belscort!!!!
The only detector I have never had any problems with and it works great is the Escort Passport 8500. This was before the X50 came out and come to think of it, before Beltronics merged with Escort to form the same company which I have referred to as Belscort in this post.
BELSCORT IF YOU ARE READING THIS, FIX YOUR DAMN DETECTORS!!!!
