Is the 8500CI out dated compared to the windshield mounts these days?

Only if you have an issue with constant k band falsing from all the blind spot monitoring systems in the cars around you! Seriously, the falsing got so bad with my Beltronics STiR+ system that I had to finally turn k band off. The newer windshield detectors are much improved from a filtering standpoint and based on the most recent testing of the new Redline, V1G2, and R7, the performance is pretty impressive as well.

I figured but had to ask. I saw one on eBay for $400 supposedly new in the box. I have an R3 and R7 now and have been waiting patiently for Theia.

Absolute waste of money IMHO. If you need custom installed, wait for someone to post an RC M again in the classifieds. I saw one for $1100 recently.
