Rated 5 out of 5 by dnobull Love this 9500IX
After using this for 3 days I am finding red-light cameras at intersections that I had no clue about. I discovered for false alarms that after several times going past those with out doing anything it learns to shut off the false alarms. If you want to stop what you know is a false alarm the first time hit the mute button 3 times. If a real radar beam hits you in that exact area the detector will know to alert you. I am using the 9500IX in the mode that blocks all x radar, other modes I have yet do discover differences with. On a trip I would set it to Hi-Way mode

We were startled when it first said something. It tells you how fast you are going when it picks up a signal. We are very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brute4s This thing is great!
I traded in my old detector on a new 9500 and I couldn't be happier. Range is great with very few false alarms. I really like the feature that shows your speed when it alarms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barrett67 Without a doubt, money well spent.
I haven't owned a radar detector in a while, but my new vehicle tends to want to go fast so I decided I needed protection. After looking at online reviews and getting feedback from friends, I decided to go with the Passport 9500ix. All the claims made by Escort are true. I am also part of the Escort Live Network, which I also strongly recommend. I have had my detector for over a month now. I definitely recommend the 9500ix and becoming part of the Escort Live Network. I am confident it has prevented me from receiving a potentially unfair ticket. I promise you they did not pay me a dime for this recommendation, I am just excited to have the protection that my new "toy" has provided! As I said, without a doubt money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tadeo It alerts. It learns. It works.
Top marks so far. Had it roughly 3 weeks and really happy with the purchase. Best detector I've owned. Worth the extra. My first Escort. Why now, because I read the reviews, nothing but positive. The reviews were right. Got credit already for the trade-in. Excellent. Thank You.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RaNae76 Love It!!!
This product does have great features. It so nice to hear the radar not going off all the time because of other inferences. It was easy to use. Keep up the great work. This is my fourth radar detector and my husband has had two of them. Thanks for putting out a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by david1011 Best Buy for Your Money
I have the same 9500ix that is 2 years old and now buying an additional one to replace my broken top of the line Beltronic that I bought 2 years back. That Beltronic died 5 months ago and my old 9500ix is still going strong, hence the decision to stay with Escort this time around. In fact, all 4 of my Escort detectors are still working.

Rated 4 out of 5 by miketexas Great product, a few minor concerns though
I have been very pleased with my 9500 but I do admit there are a few things that could be better. My main concern is that I have to physically turn on the unit every time I get in the car, it doesn't power up when the key/engine comes on. Small gripe but I don't like it myself. I have experienced several instances where I felt like the range was far better than previous detectors I have had for sure so the operation I have no issues with at all. I really like the mute button on the power cord so you can mute it easily once a radar is alerted on. My favorite overall feature is the AWESOME sticky suction cup mount that you can purchase as an accessory. I think the windshield will have to cave in before my detector comes loose which was always such an aggravation with old detectors and those little suction cups that always let if fall off the windshield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnnysChallengerSRT8 Best Radar detector I've ever owned
Picked up a KA band reading from 1/4 mile away in week one of install and saved me a ticket. After a few weeks of using, all of the false readings from grocery stores, hospitals, elementary school speed readers ect. have been stored and eliminated. I love this thing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyron695 The best radar I've ever own!!!
It's the best radar detector I've ever own!!! Easy to use, easy to update via internet. Pretty good range... the detector picked up a trooper over 1 1/2 away before I ever saw him. I love the GPS feature that eliminates any false signal after the 3rd time passing it (great feature on my daily commute to & from work). I wish it came with the Smart Cord & new suction cup windshield mount are my only dislikes. Now I want the Passport MAX!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steven I feel safer
I am very impressed with this product. I mean its like i have an extra set of eyes x10. This device works wonders i would definitely recommend this product. I was driving home from school and the Passport pick this cop up from behind me, i didn't even know he was there. If i didn't have this i would be paying for a ticket right about now because i was definitely speeding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bongie27 all around great radar detector
Very nice, easy to use and Escort live is awesome. I recently took a road trip for Thanksgiving (700 miles round trip) and the 9500 worked flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Schneller Superb false alarm features, reliable performance
I have owned this detector for about four months; it is replacing another detector from a different manufacturer. I had the 9500ix professionally installed and wired directly to the electrical system in my car. It is located just below the rear view mirror; consequently, there are no wires to tangle or other obstructions. I did get the "heavy duty" mounting suction cups and that has performed flawlessly. The detector does a great job of detecting Ka band police radar threats in our area as well as the parked radar vans which typically use K band. The radar detector functions very well. One of the best features is the auto-mute and false alarm feature. When it detects a signal in the same place, it will declare it a false alarm after three occurrences. You can also hit the mute button to filter out the "your speed is..." K-band signals that seem to be popping up everywhere. Because it has an integrated GPS, the detector will display your GPS speed. Great detector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sambo41 Each new version gets better in multiple ways.
My original was a Fuzz Buster, one ugly box, but it worked. I've owned many of the versions there after. The most recent one purchased was a gift to a fellow Porsche owner who had helped me with a yard project. We surveyed and installed a perforated corrugated pipe for conducting the water away from my foundation pylons. He deserved to own one of the new ones at my expense. I hope he enjoys it as it never hurts to know who is looking at you or where.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bradleybro GPS Radar is a must
9500ix with GPS is the best thing that has ever happened to radar detectors. after a few trips by the annoying false alert sources (super market, speed signs, automatic doors) the 9500ix will learn that its a false alert. now there a no more false alerts on the roads i drive the most

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hellequin Crazy USA Speed limits...!
As a European visiting the vast extent of the USA and having been made aware that (a) speeds are generally different in various areas from State-to-State, as well as (b) often way lower that at "home", I decided that I needed some "help" in being a "good citizen" :) Prior to arriving here, I did a lot of research and read many reviews. In the end I figured that a $500 investment would be well worth avoiding the aggravation ensuing from an "accidentally heavy foot". Driving mainly the back roads where there is little traffic but often the odd Bear smoking in the shadows, I believe that this unit saved me its price 3x over during a 10,200 mile trip over a five week period. As a tool keeping the driver aware of any unwitting overspeed, it's excellent for not only staying logical within one's natural enthusiasms, but also does so by SERIOUSLY warning – way in advance – of any local "Revenue Collectors" lurking behind trees or in unmarked vehicles innocuously parked by the roadside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BMW2002 So far so good.
I replaced my Passport 8500 with the new 9500 and the first thing I noticed was the decrease in false alarms. Range seems very good and the upgraded windshield mount is a must. Overall very pleased. Need more road miles to really test it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlGinMaryland Not perfect, but a good solid product
There are so many glowing reviews that I agree with, I just want to focus on the negative, so you won't be disappointed. I do recommend this device, but it is not perfect. 1. It does not detect laser very well. In Maryland, I have never seen it detect laser in advance, always after the fact. But the live alerting really helps. 2. The android app has a lot of issues. One time they put out a bug filled version that did not work for a week or two. I also set up some marked locations, and now I can't delete them. Sometimes the delete works, sometimes it doesn't. Now I have two marked locations that do not show up on the map on my phone, but my detector is warning me about them. But I would still recommend, I just wish: 1. Fix the bugs 2. Integrate with Waze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJA58 Don't get to comfortable with any radar detector!
This is a great tool to have. I really enjoy the red light camara feature. I do have to say you can still get caught speeding. I was so comfortable with this I thought it would catch everything, but it didn't. The laser feature does work, it even tells you the speed you are going when you get laserd, It also tells the police the speed at the same time. It was hard to explain going 103 on 95 south in Georgia. The ticket was as much as this product.

I really like the red light camera warning feature, but, it seems the 8500 gives me better long range radar warnings on the highway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jekadad Terrific Product! Escort Live is a great addition as well.
I went with the 9500iX versus the Max due to the Max just having come to the market and have not been disappointed. I've been very pleased particularly with the iPhone app. I must say, though, it seems a little chintzy of Escort to not include the USB to mini cable necessary for Defender updates otherwise, very pleased.
