So I have had my Escort 8500 for about a month. I have had questions and have gotten answers. I did have to return it to Car Toys for a replacement (see my other posts), but they stood by it and replaced it no questions asked.
I drove 1000 miles to/from Austin, Texas last week and I picked up every radar trap out there! My wife was amazed at how far away the detector would pick up a threat and how accurate it was. I picked up lots and lots of cops as there are TONS of them in Texas.
Anyway, I just wanted to sing the praises of this great product.
