GPS Technology
The Pro 500 comes pre-loaded with thousands of safety camera locations, including red light and fixed position speed cameras, located throughout North America. You can also add your own "hot spots" using our "Mark Location" feature. Plus, the Pro 500's unique AlertLock feature eliminates known false alarms and AutoScan mode varies radar sensitivity based on your vehicle's speed.

 

User-Selectable Options

    Laser Detection not reliable

    Comments about Beltronics Pro 500 Radar Detector:

    I do like this detector overall, as I only use it to keep me alert to avoid a simple mistake of speeding when not using cruise control. I do not speed very often, but catch myself speeding at times when not using cruise control and flowing with traffic. After a recent trip to Florida, I can confirm the unit doesn't detect Laser, but was lucky to avoid any ticket but did see several cars get pulled over and even passed officers using LASER on my vehicle with NO ALERT. I double checked settings, so that wasn't issue. I had suspected the unit wasn't picking up LASER as I noticed a few obvious times in SC where police were pointing a detector and I had no signal. I can only recall a few time in the city where LASER alert seemed to be working.

              Comments about Beltronics Pro 500 Radar Detector:

              I have previously owned two Escort Passport 8500 X50 radar detectors and this one is so far above those modles, it is truly much better than any detector I've ever tried. The fact that I can ignore all the stores and other false alarms and really focus on only real alerts is a great relief.

              The GPS connects super quick!

              I have a loud convertible and this is much louder than the Passport 8500s. It has auto-dimming of the read-out, it only alerts when you are moving above a certain speed. All these items are fantastic!

              This also seems to have much better filtering as it does not false alert on all the stores along my route like the 8500 x50 black did. If you drive in any urban / suburban area you must have the GPS enabled model! Plus it was only $100 more than the X50 Black...well worth it!
