Reviews around feature (5.00 of 5)

  • Because of this, I use this radar detector mostly for its precise GPS-speedometer feature rather than using as a radar detector to speed up
  • I still bought this radar detector, but decided to use its speedometer feature (as explained above) to protect myself from future speeding tickets
  • It learns false spots which is a great feature, and it also has all the red light cameras built in as well
  • The gps mapping of speeding and red light cameras is a fantastic and valuable feature.
  • It has warned me a few times and I love the feature where it stores radar from

Reviews around fact (5.00 of 5)

  • I also love the fact you can add a false alert into memory so next time you pass by that signal your device won't sound an alert.
  • Anyway I love the fact this one has a memory and stores false alarms from pharmacies, hospitals etc
  • Love the fact the unit locks out after 3rd time GPS captures location.
  • I like the fact that it doesn't beep forever when it gets a signal
  • (Added 9-16-14)No radar detector will protect you against laser as well as against instant-on radars

Reviews around gps (4.30 of 5)

  • The GPS, upgradeable, and huge advance distance warning signal when being monitored are benefits that allow you the edge towards safe, conscious, aware proof driving.
  • Great sensitivity and a GPS that learns and locks out false triggers!
  • I am very pleased with this and love the GPS being included so that it can remember speed traps and false alarms easier
  • Because of this, I use this radar detector mostly for its precise GPS-speedometer feature rather than using as a radar detector to speed up
  • Very good detection range, love the GPS lockout feature and the defender database

  • Conclusion-- I need a radar with simplicity to use and great RANGE
  • I totally love this product, it is easy to install, the 9500IX has great range and it is reliable to a dime

  • The anti-false signal memory works well, too

Reviews around cord (4.03 of 5)

  • but I misunderstood that the smart cord did not have blue tooth and did not work with the APP
  • Because the 9500ix has GPS the new smart cord is still pretty much redundant for me... though if I were driving cross country I may consider it in the future,for "cop spotting", once more users are on the road.
  • but I misunderstood that the smart cord did not have blue tooth and did not work with the APP
  • So for $600 with the extra smart cord you still need a cheap accessory! not good!
  • But it needs a "Smart Cord Live" to work with "Escort Live"

Reviews around device (3.86 of 5)

  • WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS ARE UNCLEAR, AND THE DEVICE IS CERTAINLY NON-INTUITIVE.
  • That being said...maybe I just had a defective device
  • the device does lower the volume more than I would like shortly after an alert triggers
  • If you don't update the database, it is a great device.
  • Device was defective out of box

Reviews around price (3.65 of 5)

  • Great price, delivery and detection quality and distance.
  • My advice is search around, stalk this unit, and jump on it when the price is right, but realistically even at MSRP with even one solid "speeding" save this unit will pay for itself between the ticket and insurance points issued
  • There are newer, better models available (and not only from Escort) which can filter out all those "false positive" signals much better and have better range, for about similar or slightly more expensive price
  • Great detector, great price, quick easy purchase & delivery

Reviews around unit (3.49 of 5)

  • I was also quiet concerned while this unit was working, there were many-many instances where I passed by police cars and were not alerted at all... as if they didn't have their radar guns aimed at me!
  • Controls are a little complicated, but otherwise this is a great unit.
  • I called customer service who told me it could be a defective unit and to send it back to Amazon since they have a 30 day return policy
  • There are newer technology units available and if you like the skinny petal a lot you may want to check into these

Reviews around time (3.36 of 5)

  • works well, good for the gps red light camera notification, it has saved me a few times
  • other times it goes off like crazy, and there's no one nearby
  • I have called Escort multiple times regarding fixes and all they tell me is that their engineers are working on it
  • Product use experience:I bought this item a month ago and it caused my panic attacks every time when it pointed back direct because I knew it wasn't just from the back
  • It does not detect radar as far away as some others have posted, but it does give you enough time to slow down if you're on the highway if you slow down IMMEDIATELY upon hearing the beep

Reviews around signal (2.03 of 5)

  • It learns your route and blocks out false signals to now interrupt your driving
  • The GPS functionality works amazing especially when muting reoccurring false signals.
  • instead they use bars but still shows how strong is the signal)4
  • Driving in a State where all locals use Radar, I have it on all the time, and the GPS will remember false signals, and you won't have to hear it falsely going off at every corner
  • Expert meter feature allows me to quickly distinguish between how many threats I am picking up and how strong the signals are.

Reviews around alarm (1.33 of 5)

  • There are some false alarms but that is inevitable with radar detectors
  • It works great and doesn't give off too many false alarms.
  • (Added 9-16-14)No radar detector will protect you against laser as well as against instant-on radars
  • It works, it will store false alarms but it will also still go off
  • I had few before but they tend to give you false alarms particularly in the city

Reviews around spot (1.33 of 5)

  • This model was released about 10 years ago (and yes, I purchased one too some time after its release) and is already outdated in terms of everything, including detection range and filtering out K-band "false positive" signals from "collision mitigation"/"blind spot monitor" systems which are being used on most newer cars (including commercial trucks)
  • I bought two different brands to see how they work and this one is junk, does not pick up laser at all even though it says it will, got three tickets in three weeks due to no laser detection, but will tell you every car that has blind spot monitors
  • But I do receive TONS and TONS of false positives from every new vehicle with blind-spot detection, lane assist, from urban sources (auto-doors - yes, I know the difference between highway and city modes).
  • everIt has a very good long-range radar detection and stores fake spots and eliminates false alarms
  • It's my 2nd Rader Detector and the silence it provides skipping false alarms and the extra time it gives you to slow down before a police cruiser is spotted is worth the extra cost.

Reviews around speed trap (1.30 of 5)

  • I am very pleased with this and love the GPS being included so that it can remember speed traps and false alarms easier
  • It works well, I like that it has a GPS built in, it can be pre-loaded with known speed traps.
  • Worked as it should.
  • Passed multiple speed traps with obvious lasers and it doesnt make a sound
  • Almost got nailed a couple of times, by real speed traps, as I was getting "Escort deaf"

Reviews around speed limit (1.00 of 5)

  • Now, it could be pure luck that I haven't been ticketed yet or that I just never go over the speed limit
  • We all find ourselves above the speed limit even if it's only 5-10 MPH once in a
  • I slowed downand drove the speed limit till signal had cleared
  • I drove the entire trip about 8 or 9 mph over the speed limit
