Passport 8500 X50
« on: September 16, 2005, 06:34:40 PM »
I just want to say how much I love this radar detector  :D

The red display matches my gauges perfectly.

It let's you disable any band you want, which is really nice because you'll get sick of X band going off every two seconds  :x

There is a little mute button right on the plug, which comes in very handy for times when you just feel like telling the thing to shut up!!!  :lol:

I just want to recomend this unit to everyone and I'd be happy to answer any questions about it.

The red display model is $300.00 & the blue display is $350.00
I picked mine up at Tweeters in XGates Commons.

I need to get this.  My detector is on its death bed.  My gram bought it a couple years ago for a xmas gift from radio shack.   It does work great, believe it or not but it has recently lost all sound so now I dont even know that Im being gunned.  Been lucky though.

How long have you guys had this type?

I picked mine up within the first week I got my STi.

I realized very soon how easy it was to get going and forget myself!  :wink:

I've had my v1 almost a year, I tell you it came in real handy today coming back from Boston.. I was late for work and I did about 80-85 the whole way :D

Didnt see any cops with their radar on either.. keke

I own a V1 and love it, but I hear great things about teh Passport as well, the only diff is the arrows.  I love my arrows. :grin:

Do they carry the V1 at any stores now or is it still just online?

The arrows are fun  :D  hehe
I just wish that Valentine would update the style a little... 8)

I took a ride in a friends car with the V1 and it was cool watching the arrows go front the front, to the side as we were going by him, and then to the back.

It's also really nice if you got "the fuzz" coming up from behind you!  8)
