I bought my first detector (escort 4500) a few months ago just so I'd have at least a minimal early warning. I'm looking to upgrade to a newer model. The budget goal is >$200 and will probably result in one from ebay.
I'm giving serious thought to the 8500 series (I like the 9500i but it's way outside the budget) What is the difference between the 8500 and the 8500 x50.
I live in spring texas (close to houston) if that makes a difference. I'm not sure what types of radar/lidar equipment is available here
Thanks for your advice
