I have an itch to upgrade in the next month. Main reason is there are so many G*D D@mn K band door openers, my 8500 X50 falses 20x a day now. Dont get me wrong, 8500 is still a dynamite detector, but these door openers are hard to get past....
If i use a the $80 trade in, plus sell my 8500 X50 outright, I can purchase a new one at a reasonable rate. Now which to get, as I am leaning toward the bel:
- GX 65 is about $30 cheaper and has GPS with a red display (better for me). Plus I like the audio alerts of BEL better than Escort
- I have the escort smart cord built in already to my car. I don't see any issue with using the cord with the bel.
- I think either unit will not sound an alert if in front of a store and stopped or moving slowly (<15 mph). Another Plus!
