    I have been lucky anuff not to have this display on both my first 8500 or my new X50.

    Yes I would purchase again from Escort.

    My only issue with Escort is there bad Costomer service as I really wish they would do better with this as many do agree.

    I have a plain old passport 8500. So take it for what its worth. I have had it for a year and a half. I have gotten 2 maybe 3 self cal messages. No "service required messages".

    I like escort! But they dont have upgrades like the V1. So it will be awhile before I buy another one of their products.

    I am wondering how many folks turn the car on or off with the detector still powered up? There is the possibility of significant voltage variations in those cases, and I wonder whether that could account for some of the flakey behavior by some detectors.
