I'm having some difficulty transitioning to the Escort 8500 x50 from the Bel 985 and Bel series of detectors.
The x50 uses a "brap" tone to signify K-band, and a "brap brap" tone for Ka band. Maybe it is just me, but I'm having a hard time distinguishing between K and Ka band using the 8500. On the Bel, the K band and Ka band sound different enough that even if the Voice was shut off, I'd be able to tell if it was K or Ka immediately.
There are lots of false alerts with the x50. It's more sensitive than the 985, but I know there are false K alerts at certain points on my route. Due to how the x50 plays the K/Ka tones, I'm having a hard time filtering it out myself.
Is there a setting I can use that will make the Ka alert sound different from the K alert on the x50?
