I have long been using an Escort Passport 8500 x50. I used to have the 8500 Classic, bought a new blue x50 with the last new car ( Honda Accord ), and I'm continuing the tradition by buying a new detector with each car purchase. I am about to get a new Avalanche, and decided it was time for a change of pace. It will be accompanied with a factory-direct Valentine1 and V1 stealth display. I am excited to see what this thing can do. I hope I'm not dissappointed, I highly doubt I will be.
BTW, the 8500 and x50 are great detectors, just had the V1 bug this go-around.
