yeah online looks to be the way to go, i was leaning towards the bel though. i think you can order direct from them.Don't waste your money locally.
I got my Escort Passport 8500 X50 for $325 CAD shipped and that included all the taxes and duties. I believe that's over $100 cheaper than buying local.
If you need help with buying on ebay. PM me, and I could help you out. When I bought mine, I got one for my uncle as well.
how did you get it that cheap? isn't u.s. retail 299?eBay!
...Escort Passport 8500 X50 for $325 CAD shipped and that included all the taxes and duties.
ouch but still pays for itself...I bought my Escort 8500 for $450.
sorry man but anything on ebay i'm suspicious of. you can order the passport direct for 299 u.s. how did you get it through a middle man for less than retail when factoring in duty, tax, shipping etc?Most electronics are cheaper online man. I guess the guy I got it off of is a wholesaler or what not.
Don't go with Bel...
good questions. if you see a guy on a bike with all kinds of detectors and jammers and antennae and a tinfiol lid it'll be me...:devillookwhere do you put the radar detector on your bike? and where do you get radar jammers?
ahh ok that makes sense. I was thinking more of instances where you ride head long into downpour like BC is so famous for.dark screens won't affect radar detection. I have mine mounted facing a smoked screen and it works just fine.
Mounting can be done as simply as heavy duty velcro to your gas tank or clutch master cylinder cover (for hydrolic clutches).
If'n it rains, you can use a plastic sandwich bag to cover the detector. But most likely you won't be tear assing on your bike in the rain anyhow. Just put that fucker in your pocket if it starts to come down.
And no, radar detectors are not illegal in BC. The only province in Canada where they're illegal is Ontario. I've had roadside chats about radar detectors with a few local rozzers. Most have been very curious about their efficiency. And to that I say that I've never gotten a speeding ticket ever in my car or on my bike while running the Escort.
at fs and best buy right now it's 549450? Thats cheap. At bestbuy its like 675 for the X50. I got mine a year or so ago for cheap.
I havent mounted it on my bike yet though, what do you guys do about rain and bugs ect? And my windscreen is blacked out so will it work through that?
