I bought my Escort 8500 X50 RED last Christmas brand new. I've owned one X50 before and a Regular 8500, and both detected laser, as I saw them go off several times for it.
My current one doesn't. I just got shot with laser and it never went off. I left it on after I got pulled over and he was behind me shooting laser and it didn't go off then either as he pulled over two other drivers. I confirmed it was laser by asking the Trooper.
I used it in another vehicle today and the officer was shooting laser on foot there too and it never went off. It detects radar bands just fine.
Shouldn't my X50 have gone off if my Vette was shot with laser? Please help, as it's still within the 1-year warranty.
