  1. SpeedInfo Drones Changed Frequency? Do I no longer need TSR In WA State?

    Hello fellow drivers,

    I pulled one of my older detectors out of the garage this past week, here in Olympia, WA. I have a GX65 Pro, which I originally stowed for out of state trips because without...

    Of course, no problem. Loving the TSR right now, which I do switch off when I get away from the drone haven

    Re: From Escort 8500 Refurb to Whistler 695SE

    No worries. I admit my error, especially with the trade in credit of 80 dollars, making the x50 pretty cheap.

    Cliff notes: Whistler was returned a few days ago. 8500x50 arrives Tuesday. As I don't think you read all the replies.

    Re: Trapster disappointment

    I just load the red light database into my Garmin, and leave the rest to the escort. Trapster is pretty lame in my area.

    Re: Washington State Patrol's new Silverado

    Thanks. It's a trend here. A lot of wealthier rural cities here have diesel quad cab trucks with canopies to hide the light systems.
    They even get bumper stickers/boat towing accessories to blend...

    Re: From Escort 8500 Refurb to Whistler 695SE

    As happya$$ also stated, the 8500 is a better unit, and I tried to go the other route and find something that would function with some semblance of TSR style filtering. Didn't work. Escort's quality...

    Washington State Patrol's new Silverado

    WSP has a new undercover Silverado to match their Chevrolet Malibu. This is a blue 2500HD, I believe based upon the tail pipe, not a duramax. Sorry for the rear shot only, this has a complete work...

    I don't know how a radar detector could fail any harder than to alert to a LEO running K band, as X band. Not acceptable.[/QUOTE]

    That was my thought. I was like, oh cool, epic fail. Lesson...

    Re: From Escort 8500 Refurb to Whistler 695SE

    There is another complete set of traffic drones from South Tacoma-Ft Lewis-Olympia, which I run through. I've been trying to live with it for 2 years, but it makes me ignore LEOs as well.

    Well to report back, I gave the Whistler a very thorough "day in the life" of my drive test and it failed pretty horribly. I was able to run it through my traffic drone region and a very handy WSP...

    Thank you, I'm hoping for that to be the case. It would be more important for laser countermeasures here anyways, if I want to drop some serious coin.

    I'm aware, just trying something else out. If it goes badly for any reason, I'll trade in my 8500 refurb for a new 8500x50.

    Thanks for the advice. I plan on running those settings, and I'll see what falses persist. I know each drone location really well by now, since I make an 67 mile run each week, Olympia to Seattle and...

    From Escort 8500 Refurb to Whistler 695SE

    Just placed an order for a new Whistler, after reading carefully through here as always. I have been well served by my 8500 Refurb, after having to send it back in the first week of ownership. But...
  24. Re: looks like gonna have to send 8500 into escort

    My Refurb is over a year old now and still sharp as the day I got it back from warranty service, 2 weeks after purchase. No regrets though. Sounds like the OP bought his from another source though.
