I just bought a escort 8500 off CList for $50 as sort of a radar use trainer with the intention of upgrading to a state of the art unit down the road.
It has been in use for 3 days now and seems to be doing some odd things. I live in an Atlanta suburb and drive 12 miles to work on 2 lane, 4 lane and interstate roads.
1st day I got 2 laser alerts on 4 lane roads usually by traffic signals. The next day I had no warnings at all. Last night coming home @ 8 PM. I had 5+ laser alerts on the intestate and 5+ laser alerts on other roads. There is no way there are this many police lasers...
I have yet to get any K or Ka warning even when I drive past law enforcement vehicles.
Does any of this sound normal?
