i have a perfectly good escort 8500 x50 that im willing to get rid of for 150$

i also have a Valentine one that im looking to sell. the thing works perfectly but needs a power cord (ive been using the escort for it) and the menus dont work (i bought it that way). i paid 250$ so id be willing to sell it for 200$

Can this 8500 be updated, or does it just get firmware updates?

i have a 8500 (not x50) that I purchased basically brand new. Cost me $140. I use it everyday. The detector hands down is the best. I was in a buddys car that had a cheapo cobra. lol those things are junk. The 8500 has saved my ass many times. Well worth the money and the best thing about them is that if you keep it in good shape you can always sell it for good money. They hardly depreciate in value.

I assume it works just fine. But there are software updates out for it.

It is an awesome radar. I use to have a blue one and then some jerk busted my driver window on my T/A and stole it .
