You can pick up a MINT 9500 for $300....


Maybe cheaper.


I've had both. 9500 is the best radar bar none.

But 8500 does what the 9500 does, with out the speed/redlight cams/built in GPS.

Update: Apparently the $100 is off the IQ. There's a few smaller discounts for other detectors and yes for the escort site. Promotions

And the IQ is SHIT! Call Escort, they will TELL you that many are sending IQ's back and down grading to X50s.

8500 x50 is all good. I've got a 9500 too. The 9500 showing the speed you're at when radar first hits you its its coolest feature, IMO.

For the $, if I bought new, I'd go 8500.

I've been thinking of getting the 9500ix. Just haven't pulled the trigger on purchasing one yet.


Anybody try out the Escort Live thing that they off? https://www.escortradar.com/escort-live

WTF is the point in it? The Iphone alerts you when your radar goes off? I think my detector does that just fine already.

Did Escort give in yet and add the directional arrows? Such a useful feature on radar detectors and because former employee Valentine used it first, Escort has refused to add 'em.

BTW, the Valentine 1 is definitely not junk. That detector has saved my ass many times in the Cobra.

Not sure the point of the arrows. I need to slow down regardless of what direction the radar gun is pointing at me from.

It's helpful to know where the signal is coming from. Ever get an increasingly strong signal on your detector? Is it because you are approaching a radar trap or is an officer closing in on you from behind? Arrows tell you which one it is. Or, have you gotten an intermittent signal that seems to last and last? Where is this cop? Ahead of you and oblivious? Or targeting you from behind? Best feature with the arrows is when you pass a hidden trap and the arrows flip. You instantly know you have passed the trap rather than waiting for the beep.beep.beep....beep.......beep...............be ep.

In general, the extra info increases your chances of making the right move to avoid detection without simply slowing down every time your detector beeps (which may not be necessary or the best move). Once you have had a detector with arrows, it's hard to use one that does not have them.

Escorts aren't bad detectors. It's just they would be better with arrows.

It tells you when people down the road are being hit by laser. In most cases you get no warning when the cops are using laser.

How is this possible? The valentine is no better at catching lidar than the 9500ix. The only time your detector will go off is when a laser hits it, so it would only go off from cars in front of you if it bounced off those cars into your detector.

Speaking of laser alerts, I just want to go off topic for a second and say those Damn Infinitis are really annoying.

Your phone communicates with other people with radar detectors to let you know when laser is coming... Has nothing to do with a valentine.

I have a Solo S2 and a K40 in the Lotus and get tell you the Escort technology is so much better. I cannot stand the K40. Might have to upgrade to the Passport 9500.

If you want a deal on a escort radar find a buddy that works at best buy. Otherwise good deals on clist on used, or even new detectors. Just make sure they have a serial number. You can sent it into Escort to have the lastest software flashed on and recalibrated, I think it costs $50. Also you can "test drive" any Escort Radar (from the manufacture) for 30 days and you can return with no questions asked if you do not like it.

I had a 8500 back in the day but now have a 9500. Both great radars, and saved me many times. Without putting them side by side I couldnt tell you which one is better. But id say go 8500 just because of the price diffrence. People will fight over V1 vs Escort all day long. In the end they are both great radars and you cant lose with either one.
