    • The Pro 300 is the NEWER version of the RX65, the firmware is updated in the 300

    Roy, I have had an Escort Passport 8500 X50 for almost a year now. The retailer that I work for just started carrying the Belltronics Pro 300. If I wanted to I could swap out my 8500 for the Pro 300 at no additional charge to me. What would you do? Swap em out or keep the 8500 X50?

    • The 8500 and 300 are basically the same detector so each have the same performance. It comes then down to personal preference, which one do you like better because of the looks and features

    Hey Radar Roy,

    I am a Los Angeles resident and am in the market for a new Radar/Laser detector. I plan on purchasing a unit that can turn off K and X band radar so I will plan on only detecting Ka and Laser. I am comparing the Pro 300 and Valentine One for Ka sensitivity but cannot find any professional opinion, what would you say is superior for Ka detection? Thanks for your help

    I purchased this unit based off of your positive review of the Pro 300. Unfortunately, the part of your review that says “No need to ship your radar detector back to Bel for new firmware updates as new police radar threats emerge. Just download updates to your PC and connect your detector, it’s that easy.” is incorrect.
    According to BEL customer service, it must be shipped back for updates. However to date, there are none.
    Although not a dealbreaker, in retrospect I would have went with something that was able to have firmware updates from home.

    Hi Roy,
    I bought a Beltronics RX65 about 8+ years ago. Every 2-3 years I’ve had to send it back to Beltronics for repair/recalibration because the detector starts to act funny (frequent false full X band alerts, spontaneous reboots). It’s due again. The Beltronics rep said they can repair it again for $100 or give me a $80 credit towards the purchase of a new detector. Is it worth getting a new Pro 300 for $220 or stick with my RX65 for $100 repair?
