This is the lowest priced GPS type unit from the Escort family of stand alone detectors. Auto-learn feature is missing from this model with only a red LED display. The SuperCup windshield mount is a nice upgrade over the standard mount. Over-all I am happy with this purchase.

The Pro 500 was my attempt to upgrade from a Escort 8500 x50. Not to bash the 8500, as it has been a very good detector... but the Bell Pro 500 takes detection to a whole new level. First off, the main difference is how quiet the 500 is filtering out false alerts. The ability to mark locations makes the 500 a joy to own. The 500 makes you wonder if its even on at times.. I do not miss the 8500 pharmacy detector one bit. I also like the softer alert tone (voice) which announces the band on alert.
