  1. pro 500 review by Ray on 12/23/2013

    Its what I expected from BEL

  2. SO FAR SO GOOD review by none on 8/2/2013

    Picks up radar signals well in advance of being in range. Only down side is a few too many false alarms. Overall, it is a good deal for the cost.

  3. Expensive, but worth it review by KeysCop Retired on 6/24/2013

    I picked the BEL Pro 500 based partly on excellent reviews and it has not disappointed me. The auto audio volume reduction on alerts is an excellent feature. The sensitivity of the unit is superior extending to 2 miles or more is some cases. The best feature for Florida drives is the ability to turn off X band, as only K and Ka band can be used in Florida. With X band on you get lots of false alerts from automatic doors. The red light camera detection is good but you do have to subscribe to updates after first 3 months to keep the data base up to date. If you can afford it, the Beltronics Pro 500 is the way to go. It's probably the last radar detector you will buy.

  4. Great Product review by chicagoswimmer on 12/12/2012

    This radar detector has saved me numerous times. It has worked well during many long trips. The plastic attachment to the windshield mount broke and I sent it back for repair. For a small fee the part was fixed along with a software update on the unit. Great service.

  5. Outstanding features, price, sensitivity review by Roadrunner on 7/31/2012

    I am very impressed with the Pro 500 (upgraded & reskined from the GX65). Priced much lower than its sister the Escort 9500ix, the only thing really diferent as far as features are concerned, is you have to manually lock out false alerts. Which I would rather do any how. That and the 9500ix has a blue display option. I was told by a representative that the two have identical inners. Puting it up against my V1 and it holds its ground on all important KA band frequencies. And it falses much less on X & K with the ability to lock out those false alarms.Its sensitive yet selective. Love the features. My V1 looks like an aging old man as its design hasn't changed since I can remember.
