I have an 8500 x50. It keeps giving false laser alerts (there is no pattern to them or reason to them and they do it in different vehicles). If I reset, that fixes the problem for awhile.
Escort wants $80 to put the latest software on it which they say will fix the problem, but I do not think the problem is the software.
I finally turned laser off as I never had had a real laser alert, but have recently learned that MA and ME are now starting to have and use more laser guns. Rather than fix it, I got a V1
I have seen a number of posts with people with false laser alert problems with 8500's. It seems like a widespread problem that must be due to a manufacturing defect.
Other manufacturers take care of their customers when their products have an inherent defect even if they are out of warranty. How come Escort doesn't step to the plate?
