What is the difference between the Escort 8500x50 Red and Escort 8500x50 Blue

We get asked this question daily and here is the simple answer. The Escort 8500x50 Red & Escort 8500x50 Blue radar detectors are exactly the same with the exception of a red or blue display. We as most people question why such a huge price difference of $40 and we are told the Blue LED's cost more money to produce. Our personal opinion is save the $40 and get the 8500x50 Red unless your vehicle interior is Blue and you really want your radar detector to match.

What is the difference between Escort 8500x50 and 9500ix

Its no secret that the Escort 9500ix is designed from the platform of the award winning Escort 8500x50 radar detector. The Escort 9500ix radar detector has almost identical performance as the Escort 8500x50 but the Escort 9500ix has an integrated GPS antenna.

Having GPS in a radar detector is not for directions, Its for notifying you of red light cameras and fixed speed cameras and for giving you the ability to mark and ignore false alerts.

The Escort Passport 9500ix puts an end to false alarms. The GPS TruLock feature allows you to simply press a button to captures the location coordinates and the exact frequency of the false alert signal and stores them in memory. Once stored, TrueLock will reject these signals the next time you pass the same location. It is intelligent enough to warn you of a new or different signals in that same location but will ignore the false memorized alert.
