Sell or return for discount?
A few weeks ago my non-X50 Passport 8500 started getting a lot of laser falses. I foolishly assumed the detector was failing and while speaking with Escort's tech support, I learned I could get a new X50 for $50 less if I bought one and returned an older 8500. I'd been thinking about upgrading anyway, so I went ahead and ordered one. I have another week or so to send my old one in, but I've learned in the meantime that there was nothing wrong with the old one; that the laser falses were due to new radar equipment at the local airport. D'oh! ops:
So now I have a perfectly good Passport 8500 (non-X50). I'm thinking I could sell it for more than the $50 Escort will give me, no?

My X50 gets laser falses around Lockheed Martin and Dobbins Air Force Base.
Welcome Moosehead. Most air ports have an infrared device that set's off the laser on Bel/Escort models. I have tested this before. For some reason, the V1 hasn't gone off around that same airport. Mk
