Friday my father called me and stated that his X50 was showing him
Service Required. So the 1st thing I did was a trip over there Sat to
see what the issue may be. I asked him if he had seen Self Cal before
and he said yes a few times before the Service Required message
popped up. So I told him lets reset the unit and see if that helps.
Well, it didn't so it looks like we are going to have to send it in for
repair. I'm a little worried because of some of the repair stories I
have read from other Fourm members. He has the Rev 5 just as
mine, I purchased mine and his at the same time and gave it to
him as a Christmas present 3 years ago.
I spoke to a Escort Rep this morning and they stated that
for $59.95, they will fix the X50 as well as replace the entire
case. Also, they would Flash the Chip and Upgrade the
Rev to the latest version if I wanted..... However they
will not do this unless I request it.
So....... I'm going to send it in for him, should I upgrade the
Rev 5 to something more current, I think the most recent is
rev 6.3 or something..... I've just heard that the rev 5 were
the best and most sault after.
I would really appreciate some feedback on this.
I just want him to be happy and not disappointed when
it comes back.
