I have had my 8500 x50 for almost two years, and I have recently started having multiple problems.
First, I seem to get 3-4 random false laser alerts per day. I have ended up disabling laser alerts until I find a better solution.
A few weeks after the laser falsing problem started, I received a service required message. Could this be related to the laser problem?
My suction cups are also driving me crazy. Boiling them in hot water only helps for about a week. I guess I need to buy new ones.
All of this is leading me to believe that I may be better off buying a new detector. Of course I would then have to make the hard choice between a V1 and a 9500i.
Please give me feedback on the problems I am having. I'd also like to hear opinions on if I should try sending in my 8500 x50 for repair or replace with with a different detector. Thanks in advance for any replies.
