    Default Compass

    Does the Escort Passport 8500 X50 have a digital compass?

    as was stated in another thread. DO NOT get the cobra. there crap. get a X50 and duct tape a compass to it . i would think the TL would have a compass in the rear view mirror, im not sure though. or just get a compass and mount it on your dash.

    Please don't waste your money on the cobra!
    Cobra just added that feature for them to look
    good. I had a cobra XRS-9700, yes it had the
    compass and it was a nice feature. The only other
    detector's that I know of that have compass's are
    PNI's and Whistler's.

    Why do you want a compass so bad?
    I guess if that's the only feature u want
    you can buy the cobra and turn off all the bands
    and have no detection and just a compass!

    You can always buy an aftermarket compass for a buck or a fancy digital one for like, two bucks

    It's not really useful anyway, just open the sunroof and look where the lights are

    Just X-band and there is a filter for K-band
