    Default POP w/ x50

    I turned on the POP feature on the escort 8500 x50 and have been getting LOTS of false POP reading. What's up with all the POP's?

    Anyone know if POP is used in NJ,NY,CT area?

    Think i should just turn off the POP?

    your better off turning it off. i have mine turned off for the same reason. all it is is a false from other detectors (cobras). it can get very annoying.

    Odds are that if you leave it on...

    You will get so many falses from Cobras(and other low-line detectors) that you will ignore them when you really get hit with one... its just what we have to deal with (the x50 really does have good pop detection though...just so happens Cobras trigger it), I would turn it off if I was you...

    I live in NY and keep my POP off and feel completely safe... instant on (and Laser) in my book is of far greater concern...
    (Then again I left my POP on for a week and I only got one false, but I still decide keep it off.)

    I wonder if that is Cobra "ploy" in selling their units. Set off everyone else and keep the market to them.

    I havent scoured the Cobra side of things about Falsing on POP, is this a problem for them??

    Same I have not yet seen any, nor heard any Troopers whom have said they have used them.

    They like their Instant on Ka and their Laser... and they are lethal with both.

    It's unbearable. I had both a Cobra 9870 and a Cobra 9700. The Cobra was about twice as bad as my rev 3.2 RX65. The 9700 was about equal, maybe a little worse. It was actually a pretty quiet detector with POP off and CityX+K mode, but with that darn 9870, didn't matter what I did, it still falsed like mad.
