    Default Escort 8500 firmware version

    Anyone know how to determine the Escort 8500 software version number? I am thinking about buying a used one on ebay becuase ka band is used by a lot of leo's in Central Illinois and want to ask the seller what firmware version is on thier detector. I have read in several opinions that most people think that the Escort 8500 is actually better at detecting ka than its newer brother the x50.

    before powering on hold down all three buttons(mode, mute, and dim). Then while holding down all three turn the power on and the Rev. number will display.
