Fs: Radar detector 8500 $80 firm

I have a used-good condition ESCORT PASSPORT 8500 radar detector for sale. It was upgraded 2 1/2 years ago with the most recent software updates (at that time). Im looking for a quick sale, preferably picked up in L.I/Queens border. I can take pictures if you want but it is exactly what you would expect to see with radar, window mount and power cord that plugs into your aux cig lighter.

I would like $80 firm. It was purchased back in 2006 direct from radarsource.com. I paid msrp at that time which I believe was 400 but it could have been 300 not sure. I simply dont drive as much as I used to so hopefully someone can put it to better use. It works perfectly and saved me twice last month on a drive back from Killington, VT. If it saves you once...it has paid for itself imho.

Very good distance in detection, good audible and visual alerts, easy to operate, just a great unit over all. It's the perfect radar detector for people on a budget that will do what they need it to do.

From website:

Detection Modes

City / Highway /AUTO modes



Alert Type

Audio/Visual



Detection Type

K Band, Ka Band, Laser, X Band



Detection Area

Front / Rear

Thanks

It is a dark grey unit. Please note: This is a Passport 8500 . Not x50. I purchased before they made the x50. I actually called radarsource this morning and I purchased back in Feb 04'.

Valentine V1 is beast. Period.

I got one from a buddy that was recently upgraded (upgrade alone costs 150). Well worth the money.

I have friends who are troopers on long island and it works. I picked them up coming up fast from behind over 1 mile away easily. The arrows are NOT overrated.
I have the hardwire kit and concealed display with a rear-view mirror mount so you literally cant see the radar from outside of the M.

The true test is heading up north to Grand Prix in Mt. Kisco or going to LimeRock CT and catching a lazy skunt with his radar dangling out his window hunting.....
