Default X80 Owner's Manual?

Just bought my X80 today. It came with a "Quick Reference" manual. In the manual (2nd paragraph under Congratulations), it states "Go to EscortRadar.com for the full featured ESCORT X80 Owner's Manual."

I've looked over the entire site, and have found what I believe is the comprehensive list of manuals at http://www.escortradar.com/manuals-downloads/ . The only X80 manual listed is the exact same Reference Guide that I already have.

Is there really no owner's manual (regardless of what the Ref Guide says)?

I've looked myself, but I haven't seen the full manual, either. I'll give a shout to EscortRadar.

Not yet. We need to get one up there. In the meantime people can use the PASSPORT's manual. It is exactly the same except for how they pair to iPhones.
The difference in pairing is that you pair with iPhones using the app, not the iPhone's settings.

The X80 manual is not available on our website yet. In the meantime you can reference the Passport's manual. It functions the same as X80 other than how the detector pairs to iPhone.

I just purchased a new X80 on Wednesday and was shocked when I tried to download the owners manual from your site. All you get is the quick reference guide. Your post is from 7/24 and today is 10/20 and Escort still has not gotten around to creating an owners manual. I also saw your post on 7/24 about the new edition of detector tools being available soon. That has not happened either.

What has happened to quality products, support and customer service?

I am still deciding about returning the X80 because of these shortcomings on Escorts part.

Please refer to the Passport's owners manual. Other than the bluetooth pairing procedure with iPhone, the X80 has the same features and settings.
