    Default Passport - 8500 vs. X50

    I tried searching, but could not get the answers I am looking for...

    What are the differences between the 8500 and the 8500 X50?

    I know POP was added, but what else?

    Many who have owned both will swear by the original 8500 on Ka detection. POP detection is really the only technology that was added.

    KA detecting was better because the pumped up the K band.....which in return causes the loss of KA band range........ 8)
