    Default Belscort software updates

    I just checked my RX65 today and realized that it is version 3.2 not 3.6. Called up Bel about this and they told me that the difference between the two revisions was only small engineering differences. I'll call back some time and see if I can speak directly with a technician to get a little more into.

    Also, I mentioned that I had heard rumors of a software update for the X50. The man that I talked to told me that there was no planned updates for either the RX65 or the X50 so far as he knew, but an update was planned for the regular 8500 to make it more comperable to the X50 within "a couple months".

    How do you tell the version of your RX65?

    Hold down the bright/dim button and the city/highway button during power on. Flashes by pretty quick, and be warned, it will reset all settings back to default.

    Thanks, I'll post mine when I get home. I just got it last week so hopefully it is some super-cool new version that can even detect the Z35 POP (wishfull thinking...).

    If they are going to update the 8500 what was the point in spending the extra to get the X50? grrr..

    OK, I just got off the phone with BEL myself. The newest revision is 4.5 however they aren't allowed to say what the differences were between the older/newer. I just think she didn't know.

    She also asked me how I knew about which revision is what

    Guess she doesn't browse radardetector.net :P

    Geeze 4.5.... Mine's at least two revisions behind then. Hopefully nothing performance related. I'm going to call in about 20 minutes and try to speak to an actual technician rather than a "customer service" person.

    In response to the X50 V. 8500 upgrade remark-
    Escort said in the past that they were planning to add POP detection to the original 8500, but it would not have the increased range of the X50.
