Escort Tune Up offer?

I just got an offer in the mail today to Tune Up my Escort radar detector with the newest software upgrade. I have the 8500 model. Do any of you know what they do to the unit and it is worth it $59.95? Thanks in advance for your response.

Re: Escort Tune Up offer?

My old 8500 just died on my way back home from New Orleans last week. Thought it was the cord and ordered a new one. New one didn't turn it on either!! Called Escort today and they said they would refurbish with a 6 month warranty for $79. I wonder if that would include software upgrade. I have the original 8500, you must have the newer 8500 X50. Check out Escort's website, they list everything they do, including sending you a better suction mount. It is definitely cheaper than buying a new unit. Good Luck!

Re: Escort Tune Up offer?

I had mine done. It seems to be a tad more sensitive and they really cleaned it up, too. They sent 2 suction cup mounts, and a car adapter. I think it was worth the $59. It took about 2 weeks from the time I shipped it off until I got it back.
