Check out Escort Live. Its a system that links your Escort detector to the "cloud", where everyone else with the system automattically share alerts. Its pretty amazing. I've been using it for about 6 months now, and I LOVE it. the best thing about it, is that the Escort Live system will upgrade your detector for you.. for free... Its all done through your smartphone (android or iphone). Although, some older model X50s aren't compatible. Give escort a call or live chat to see if yours is compatible. If it is... its worth the $99 for the service, and the ability to upgrade your firmware... which by the way includes better filter software for those false alarms.
Let me know if you have any more questions about it.
