Hi I a newbie here and in the market for a new detector. I've been reading quite a bit about the different detectors available as well as any review I can find. I have narrowed down my choice to either the Escort X50 or the Valentine 1. I have concerns regarding both and some questions that I hope the veterns of this board can answer. Her goes.
1. Is the X50 upgradeable? Can't find any reference to this option available on Escorts site. If so, how much do they charge.
2. I know the V1 is upgradeable. Question for those who've had them for sometime is, how often does the company typically provide new updates? Every month, 2 months, 6 months, etc. Just curious as I've read there are issues with current version.
3. One of the big selling points on the X50 is the Auto-mute. Does this option work on the V1? I've heard that it does and it doesn't. Would like to get feedback from this crowd. I know the V1 is prone to false more but I could live with it if the Auto-mute worked properly.
4. Is Valentine 1 only available direct? What are folks thoughts on used one from ebay?
Any info would be greatly apprecitated.
