  • The Escort 8500 X50 gets a makeover

    Escort recently updated their popular, high end 8500 X50 radar detector and re-issued it as the 8500 X50 Black.

    While not radically different from its predecessor cosmetically, The 8500 X50 Black does sport a few subtle changes to its outer shell, giving it a slightly sleeker look. And, of course, the formerly silver bodied unit is now black, as its model name implies. However, that's not what sets it apart from the orginal 8500. It's what is under the hood that has improved.

    The original Escort Passport 8500 X50 is noted as one of the best high performance radar detectors on the market with great range, reliable detection and quick response time to traffic enforcement radar. In addition to the standard features of this model, the new version 8500 X50 Black now has up to 50% greater range than the original Passport 8500 on K and Ka bands. Its "V-Tuned" radar receiver provides a maximum range of detection on all conventional and "instant-on" police radar, including POP mode and X-Band. The PASSPORT 8500 X50 also includes Escort's Traffic Sensor Rejection software to eliminate false alerts.

    The X50 Black also features Escort's own ExpertMeter™ multiple threat display to detect 8 different radar threats simultaneously. It also has an AutoSensitivity™ mode, which adjusts sensitivity levels automatically according to your driving conditions. This radar detector can integrate with the Cincinnati Microwave ZR4 Laser Defense System.

    As with the original, the Escort 8500 X50 Black is available in either a blue or red display with three display modes: standard bar graph mode, ExpertMeter™ mode and SpecDisplay™ mode.

    The 8500 X50 has been around awhile, but it's not getting older, it's getting better. Escort's recent performance makeover of the X50 merely secured it's reputation as a manufacturer of high end, top of the line radar detectors available on the market today.

  • Give a Whistler, Get a Gift!

    NOTE: This promotion expired December 31, 2011 and is no longer available.

    The holidays are almost here and Buy Radar Detectors has the spirit of giving! If you are searching for a high tech gift to give this holiday season that is special, unique and affordable, a radar detector is the way to go. No doubt a radar detector makes a great gift and to make it even better, we have a gift for you:

    Purchase a dashboard mount Whistler radar detector and receive one FREE Whistler Socket Multiplier (Model 203285), a $10 value!

    The Whistler Socket Multiplier allows you to share the DC port/cigarette lighter in your vehicle with two 12 volt devices at the same time. Convert your existing single 12v DC outlet into two separate sockets so you can power, your radar detector and a cell phone, GPS navigator or another device simultaneously. It features a green LED power light, a 4 point adjustable plug and includes a 90 Day manufacturer warranty from Whistler.

    But the giving doesn't stop there. After all, it's the season for giving, so we're giving something more.

    For every Whistler XTR-690 SE, XTR-695 SE, orPro 78 SE radar detector purchased, you will receive a Whistler Socket Multiplier and one FREE Whistler INTELLICORD® Power Cord, a $20 value!

    The INTELLICORD® is a 12v DC power cord with a programmable button on the base that allows you to assign your choice of any two of the following features: Power On/Off, City Modes, Dim/Dark, and Quiet/Auto Quiet. A short press of the button activates the first feature; a long press activates the second! The Whistler INTELLICORD® is compatible with the three Whistler radar detectors listed above.

    The Whistler Socket Multiplier and the Whistler INTELLICORD® Power Cord combined are valued at $30. This makes these Whistler radar detectors a great gift to show you really care!

    There is no limited, either. Purchase multiple items of the same or different models and each includes the FREE gift(s).

    To receive the items, simply place your order. The free gifts will be automatically added at checkout. This is a limited time offer and is available only while supplies last, so order now before it's too late!

  • The new version of the Valentine One has a new feature!

    Valentine One just released a new software update for their detectors and units with the latest version are now shipping!

    The Valentine One radar detector now includes version 3.892. This new version includes a new feature called Traffic Monitor Filter. This feature eliminates false alerts caused by frequent K-band radar bursts from Speedinfo, a system used to monitor traffic flow on US highways.

    Traffic Monitor Filter is turned off by default on new V1 units out of the box, but can be manually activated by the user. Activation instructions are available from Valentine One at http://www.valentineone.com/Lab/techreport3.asp.

    There is one caveat: When Traffic Monitor Filter is enabled, K-band POP radar detection is turned off. (it does not affect Ka-band POP protection). Valentine One recommends that you only activate Traffic Monitor Filter if Speedinfo is active in your area, otherwise you should leave it disabled.
