hey guys I was wondering I have the Passport 8500 and I absolutely love it, I was wondering how the Solo S2 compares. I was looking to go wireless for my wife's car and was wondering how they stack up against eachother.

James have you thought of converting the 8500 to cordless? All you need is a flat 12v rechargeable battery that'll stick to the bottom of the unit. I would've done that, had I not got busted by a radar detector car. They took it away from me, ba$tard$!
I don't think the cordless models are good enough for everyday use.

thats kind of a pain in the @ss though I mean how long would the battery really last, and wouldnt it lose its range on a low battery?

Well not the way I make'em. It'll last much longer than AA/9v battery the cordless uses.
You'd be surprised with some of these slim flat rechargeables. Much more power and longer lasting than standard batteries.

is it legal for them to just take your detector?

Well yea cause it's not legal everywhere. The "foot soldier" cops will take it away from you, give you a ticket, then make you go to court for a trial. I think it's really stupid. Not like it's a dangerous weapon nor is it a drug. Just a gadget.

I just ordered the x50 today so I cant wait to get it. I am gonna move the 8500 to my wife's car. Going from my jeep (that couldnt get out of its own way) to my a4 I look down and find myself speeding out of control so I though an upgrade was in need! lol my wife didnt see it that way but what are ya gonna do! lol

How much did it cost you? Too bad it's illegal in Canada.
