Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 202
Rated 5 out of 5 by TennisBum1 One of my best purchases EVER!
I own the 8500 X50 and use in 4 vehicles, to include my Ducati Multistrada GT adventure touring motorcycle. The X50 has saved my butt on numerous occasions in the US and Canada. I retired 2 years ago and not only do I travel extensively on my motorcycle (most recently LA to the Arctic Circle in Alaska), but in an automobile, cross country with my wife, visiting family and friends. The X50 has worked flawlessly in the lower 48 to Canada to Alaska. Wouldn't travel without it! Bought two more for both of my sons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by b porter nothing compares to escort
This detectors only problem is that its range is way too good. The only time I about got stopped was because the thing alerted me and after a couple of miles under the speed limit I decided it was like all the others. I kicked it back up and it started beeping again and sure enough I met an OHP who was manually shooting cars as he met them. Unbelievable is an understatement! This detector picked up Ka band at 6.5 miles away! Find that anywhere else. I live in rural Oklahoma where you might be the only car traveling for 20 miles both ways (the hardest environment for good detector results) and have yet to get close. And as for the guy complaining about the X band, appearantly he cant read because you can completely shut off the X band...

Rated 5 out of 5 by doc158 Good product. We have several
If you want a detector that works for a decent price this is it. We have three and have used them for years. If nothing else when it goes off you have a chance to check your speed as you enter the radar zone. Sometimes you enter a lower speed zone and do not realize it. Of course laser still does not give you a warning if it is pointed at you. You can only hope they shoot someone else first then you can slow down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jreyes411 Excellent Radar Detector!!!
This Radar Detector is replacing my over 12 year old Passport 7500. This is a newer model with better technology & I know this will last me a very long time. This detector has warned me of radar when I couldn't see where it was coming from. Highly recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KKeezer Great product
I've been a loyal customer of Escort for years and I have always felt that they are the industry leader in radar technology. I will continue buying and supporting there product line of radars. I just got my 8500 x50 and I am enjoying how well it works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dwils Too many false alerts
Can't even use this in the city. The X alert is constantly going off for false alerts. I was expecting much more accuracy out of a product this expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela62 Escort Passport
I have been a passport owner for over 20 years. I just had a message that service was required show up on my passport. I already had it serviced over 5 years ago and decided that it was time for a new one. I called, ordered it, received it in a few days, and it is on the dash of my car saving me money each and every day. I know when it goes off that I better be aware of speed traps. It has saved me many tickets over the years and I would not travel without one.
