Note to all Escort 8500 X50 owners. Upon recent testing I wanted to let you all know that if you have forgot to turn your detector on and you see a cop and plug in your detector to see if he's shooting you with laser or radar you might as well not plug it in at that moment. You won't pick up his laser or radar. This is because the detector has an 7-8 second warm/start up time.
Once turning on your detector you will have to wait 7-8 seconds before the detector starts detecting a signal.
Test your own detector and see what you get.
