You have probably opened up the whole Escort/Passport vs. Valentine debate (for which I no opinion). But I used the 8500 in my Tahoe, and was extremely pleased with it.

I went with the Solo in my Z, because I wanted cordless. Again, very happy with the performance. It is hard to go wrong with Escort.

I love my V-1. It is great to know where and how many are around. I have heard nothing but good things about the 8500 as well.

Toykilla did the hardwire install on mine, it sits right up top near the visor and starts as soon as the car does!!

v1 is king. I would not trade mine for 10 passports. For your sake, do your research well before spending the money. Make sure and read some V1 testamonials.
