i have the escort 8500 x50 if you couldnt tell lol, but i was just wondering where the best position for the best performance was cuz i have mine about two inches off of the dash so i can have the best laser coverage, but i also have had mine next to the a-pillar. i think it looks stylish there but, i would say performance is better then looks..

i have had these things since i could drive and i believe they dont have a prob seeing thru glass (duh), windshield wipers, or tint.
i did find out that it does not work to have one forward and one backward and tho they do kinda work, they dont do great when basically any place lower than the dash

where do you have your 12v wire hardwired at??? i have mine in my fuse box(the radio fuse i believe) and then itas run up a few inches in the a pillar and then right where the crease is on the dash(it goes from black to a tan color) i have it tucked in between the crease and then up to the detector. do you have good rear radar coveragewith it in that position???

it used to be hooked up to my deck for power but i kept blowing the fuse for the radar he alot of power went thru
i actually just got it on different power today so that stops... (really it was today! wow)

Ill try to get some pics later today, the angle seens fine, but I swear, lately, there have been no cops using radars, because the only times it has gone off in the last 3-4 months is when i pass those "your speed is" things.

3 main ones to look at before you break into the crazy $600-$1k+ mark:
escort 8500, bel x65, valentine 1 (1.8)

I was looking for this one site that tested the major ones on the market, but I can't find it... I posted it on ca.com, but I'm banned on there atm.

here are some good sites for extra info:

awesome. yeah i know what you mean. around where i live (northern ky), i have not seen to much radar or laser which sucks, cuz i love to watch my x50 in action. oh well. i will find some one soon who has theirs running. i have noticed a lot of instant-on and pop around here a few months back though, kinda interesting
