Beltronics Pro 300 Radar Detector Review

Overview of the Bel Pro 300

The main benefits of the Beltronics Pro 300 are:

  • Programmed with older version of Beltronics digital signal processing algorithm (DSP)
  • 4-times the range of a police radar gun
  • Easy to read LED display
  • Clear digital voice alerts

(Dated) Digital Signal Processing Algorithm

When investing in a radar detector two of your biggest concerns is the detector’s ability to sniff out real police radar threats and its ability to filter out false alerts, here is why.

Police departments across the world are now in the process of updating their equipment to the new, low power battery operated hand held digital radar guns.

All of these types of radar guns are instant on, meaning that they do NOT transmit any radar signal until the officer has a target vehicle in sight and presses the trigger.

Because of this when you select your radar detector, an important consideration is its ability to detect instant on miles away.

Then another problem, the anti-collision sensors that are being installed in most new cars today.

These sensors operate on the same K-Band frequency that police use and because of this most radar detectors constantly false alert.

The Escort 8500 X50 uses an older version of their DSP algorithm, thus it does lack the filtering and performance found in Escort’s newer detectors such as the Passport, the Passport Max and the Passport Max2.

Because of this we feel you would be making a better investment by puchasing one of the detectors listed above.

Long Range Radar Detection

The Beltronics Pro 300 is built on Escort’s M4 antenna design, which places the Pro 300 in the Long Range Category, with 4 times the capture distance of a police radar gun.

The result is a detector that will provide ample warning of instant on K and Ka Radar miles away.


Because the Escort 8500 x50 uses somewhat dated DPS technology when compared to the newer Passport, the Passport Max and the Passport Max2, it does not have the filtering characteristics needed to block out false alerts caused by the anti-collision sensors installed in many new cars today.

Because of this we would recommend instead in investing in one of Escort's newer detectors.

Clear Voice Alerts – 10 Points

The Beltronics Pro 300 has clear voice alerts, providing you with the information you need without having to take your eyes off the road.

High Definition Text Display – 5 Points

The Beltronics Pro 300 displays radar alerts using the older text display. The display is easy to read at any angle and the brightness is adjustable.

Easy Advanced Programming – 7 Points

You program your Beltronics Pro 300 by pressing the buttons on the unit to change the brightness of your display, program the radar bands used in your area, adjust the filtering options, and more.

Motorcycle Use: 8 Points

When accessorized with the proper motorcycle mount, external warning device, and weather protection, the Beltronics Pro 300 becomes a great detector for your motorcycle.

Motorcycle Mounting Systems: RadarBusters offers a variety of motorcycle radar detector and cell phone mounts by Techmount, which will fit virtually any motorcycle.

External Warning Device: The Bel Pro 300 does have an external earphone jack, which you can plug into your motorcycle sound system. However, we would recommend the Legal Speeding HARD system, which is a wireless heads up display.

Weather Protection: There are several websites that sell “motorcycle radar detector boxes,” but we don’t recommend them. Instead, go to your local CVS and buy a child’s size shower cap. It’s cheaper and will protect your detector just as well.

Warranty & Support – 10 Points

Your Pro 500 comes with Beltronics's 1-year warranty and Radar Roy's 30-day no risk money back guarantee.

Also, because we have been an authorized Beltronics dealer since 1997, you’re pre-approved to purchase Escort’s extended 24 month extended warranty for only $29.95.

Here on RadarBusters, Radar Roy has several articles in his help guide section to assist you in getting the most out of your detector such as: How to Maximize the Use of your Radar Detector, How to Update Your Radar Detector, and Defensive Driving Tips for Radar Detector Users.

You’re welcome to contact Radar Roy direct 24/7 by using the contact form on this website or calling our toll free number during normal business hours.

Included Accessories

4 of 5 Ok, but.............. August 3, 2014
Reviewer: Jim from Romania, Europe  
Ok, great sensitivity but.... I have the 55 and 65. No real difference to me. I'm in California, they use Ka here for giving tickets. I turn everything else off which is easy to do on the 8500 and that's a plus. You can't turn POP off on the 55, 65, and 8500 and they seem to false on what I'm guessing is an alarm device.  They seem to do it at signals which may say something.

5 of 5 It Works Great! August 1, 2014
Reviewer: Jonsale from Chesterfield Co  
The first real test was a recent trip to Florida. No kidding, it saved me 5 times on the trip from Georgia to the coast. This detector gives you plenty of time to slow down after you are alerted. I had a hard time deciding on which detector was the best for the money, and I am very satisfied that I made the perfect choice. It paid for itself on the first trip.

5 of 5 Good price, Great product July 6, 2014
Reviewer: _koda mluvit from WOODSIDE,NY  
Very good sensitivity and accuracy at same time. It gives false alarms sometimes, which cannot be avoided, I guess. This model has several features, such as 'Ku-band', 'International  Ka-band' and the 'POP', which may not be needed in the US, but definitely needed in the European countries, if you plan to travel and use your radar-detector over there.

5 of 5 THE BEST RADAR DETECTOR EVER!!!!! June 22, 2014
Reviewer: AllUser from Portland, OR  
This is the best radar detector ever!! I first bought the top of the line cobra, and discovered that all cobras are horrible!!! A waste of money. Then when i discovered this website i read up on the RX65 and the 8500X50 and was torn between the two, so i bought them both. I used eachone for a couple of days and decided that the RX65 was the best one. I threw the 8500X50 in my girlfreinds car.
