    Default 8500 upgrades

    Everytime I email escort I get different storys. First they said the 8500 is upgradeable now they want me to buy a x50. :roll:

    So can I send it in and get a software upgrade? My 8500 probably needs service going on 2 years.

    There has been no software upgrades for the 8500. The 8500 X50 was a hardware upgrade. If and when the Ku band come out, I would expect a software update then

    Funny...what makes you think that? Is it because it says so on the box? They told me last year that there would be a software pop upgrade released in September, 2004, over a year ago. Still waiting.....

    Well Ku is a relatively simple procedure to enable. All you have to do is "turn on" Ku band. Except that ESCORT decided not to allow the end user to do that at home.

    Then why isn't it already standard?
