I hate my 8500x50. It wasn't too long after the warranty was gone, when I started getting what I thought were false laser alerts. Then came the "Service Required" messages. Now, I get 2-3 laser hits in pitch dark before I get out of my driveway...false laser hits so often, I don't even notice them anymore. Scares the crap out of my wife and daughter when they ride in the GTO though
The last straw was when I was rubmbling through my home town...and there as a cop sitting there with the gun pointing right at me! What the heck??? I thought maybe he was instant-onning peple or soemthing, but no. I drove by stores that I KNEW set it off...nothing. I even have a video of it somewhere....drive by an adult book store that sets it off, pulled into the parking lot and rolled the video....nothing. I unplugged it, plugged it back in, and bbb.b..b......b..b.b...b..bEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE .
Since then, I've ben hit at least two more times where they were obviously clocking, and it did nothing except what it does best...look ugly.
I hate Escort....still ticked that they promised you could get a key to a Solo. Ha. No key available....but we'll give you $50 a new detector!!!
I'm done with Escort forever.
So....who's got the deals on the V1's?
