So my 12 year old Beltronics V940 finally give out. R.I.P. I figure I got my moneys worth for that long of service. Anyways, I am in search of a new radar detector. At first I looked at the Whistler CR85, but was disappointed to know that it is just a Pro-78SE in a nicer looking shell. Does it still have the issues with the X to K and X to Ka-Band confusion? I had a Whistler and if you turned off X-Band and went by a source it would false K-Band. If I turned both X-Band and K-Band off and went by a source it would false Ka-Band. If this is still in issue then I won't even consider it. I like Beltronics as they have served me well in the past and present. My only issue with Beltronics is the lack of ramp up. It doesn't seem to have any ramp up. It will go from one bar to full and stay there. I also looked in to the juggernaut V1 and have always wanted one. Unfortunately, I read a review and it is missing one thing that I absolute want: Frequency ID. I also read that it is so sensitive that radar signals bounce around and it will alert you to more then one LEO even though there is only one. I love the V995's Frequency ID as I am able to tell immediately whether it is a true LEO or a false. Example: K-band LEOs are always 24.148GHz or 24.150GHz while door openers are 24.120GHz or 24.128GHz and it detects Cobra radar detectors at 33.498GHz. My state does not use 33.6GHz at all, photo or red-light enforcement either. I would say it is about 80% 35.5Ghz, 10% 34.7GHz, and 10% K-Band. So after writing a ridiculously long post I have come to the Escort 8500X50 with blue display. How is the ramp up compared with Beltronics? Does it also have the five digit Frequency ID? Is this a good upgrade from the old S4 V940? I did look into the Redline to but just do not want to spend that much money. I can get the 8500X50 for around $250. Buy it or do you folks have a better one in mind?
