    Default Escort's 8500 not upgradeable

    When I bought my 8500, I was told by Escort that they(8500's) would be upgradeable, but found out today they are not, as I called customer service, has anyone had the 8500 upgraded? :twisted:

    If this is for the original 8500 not x50 version there is no upgrade.
    Now they may offer a firmware upgrade but I doubt that as well.
    Escort and Bel both advertised software upgrades and never came thru!

    From what I've been told, the original 8500 can get software upgrades and thats it.

    It's been almost 5 years and no upgrades fro me on my original 8500. If they do not offer 1 on the KU band if it is used in the USA, it is time to shop for a lawyer for a class action law suit. Someone should hold them accountable for the "never obsolete to new threats" promise.
