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

the 8500 does not do GPS, so it wont get location 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.

My cobra works just fine and has saved my ass too! :fawk:

does it not work well?
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 :mad:.
