I had a Cobra that bricked itself and sat non stop from power on until power off at an annoying laser detection warning. I tossed it, and put back an older Cobra Vendetta, but was tired of the false alarms that one got. So I purchased the $300 Escort X80 and was nothing but disappointed, both in the app that's an annoying money grab with four or five "no thanks" prompts I have to click past to avoid upgrading to the paid premium junk before it would even link up, and then things it should do like be able to let me mark something as a false positive, it failed to do. The detector itself, a new model, had all the same failures my older Cobra models had with some of the stores I pass on the way to work. My car has the radar avoidance features as well as blind spot monitoring, so the Escort even went off as soon as I started my car in the garage, I assume it was receiving radar signals. I'd also get it to start warning me as I backed into the garage when I would park.
VERY annoying for something over $300 so I returned it, and tried this.
So far, not a single false positive in the normal places I've *always* had them with every other detector. It also doesn't go off when I'm in my garage, either coming home or leaving. So far each time it's gone off, I've been able to see the police car somewhere ahead as I eventually passed it.
Volume is annoyingly loud if you set it so, necessary if you have windows open and lots of wind noise, or loud music. Easy to read display as well.
Not sure how it will do longer term, but so far in the short time I've had it, it's proven far better than any other one I've had simply by ignoring all the spots my old ones used to go off...
