If you’re looking for a top of the line radar detector that is equipped with many features and capabilities that other radar detectors do not have and is guaranteed not to give you false alarms then you need the Escort Passport 9500ix. This radar detector has the ability to recognize numerous types of radar bands such as Ku, Ka, K, and X.
Many of the radar detectors on the market today are not able to detect all types of radar bands and, as a result, are not as effective as they may claim to be. While even other radar detectors may detect all of the radar bands, many of them are prone to giving you false alerts.
What makes the Escort Passport 9500ix unique is that it has the ability to store false alerts in its memory so it will not continue to alert you to that same radar frequency every single time you pass it. This is due to the TrueLock filter that is powered by GPS. When you hear a false alert, you can hit the mute button a few times and the Escort Passport 9500ix radar will store the GPS location and the band frequency in its memory to keep it from alerting you of that same detection again.
It is also capable of recognizing different radar frequencies within the same area and will alert you of those. With the Escort radar detector, you will no longer be annoyed by the constant beeping due to false alerts.
Along with the TrueLock filter, the Escort Passport 9500ix also has a feature called AutoLearn, which uses the GPS system to determine your location whenever a signal is detected. When the 9500ix detects the same radar signals three times in a particular location it will automatically block the signal from being detected in the future.
The difference between the TrueLock filter and the AutoLearn feature is simply that the TrueLock is performed manually while AutoLearn happens automatically.
While the GPS system in the Escort Passport 9500ix will not guide you to where you need to go, it does let you know where the hot spots are, which include red light cameras, speed cameras, and speed traps. Red light cameras do not send out radar signals so other radar detectors are not able to recognize them.
However, because the Escort Passport 9500ix was so intelligently designed, it can distinguish when a red light camera is approaching and will alert you with plenty of time to slow down or stop.
The Escort Passport 9500ix has an important voice alert feature that will reduce the dangerous distractions that come with using other types of radar detectors because you will not have to take your eyes off the road to look at the display when an alert occurs.
When the 9500ix detects a radar band, it will speak to you in English and let you know what the alert is for so you can concentrate on your driving and on lowering your speed without ever having to glance at the visual display on the radar detector and risk having an accident.
To keep the Escort Passport 9500ix up to date, you can easily hook it up to the USB port on your computer and the updates will automatically be installed onto the detector device. You will receive free updates for 3 months after purchase and will then have to pay a subscription fee for further updates. This feature is compatible with Microsoft Windows operating systems.
When you purchase the Escort Passport 9500ix radar detector you will receive a suction cup windshield mount. It is easy to install and is adjustable. When you mount the radar detector, you will want to make sure it gets the highest GPS signal possible by ensuring it has a clear viewpoint of the sky.
You can also purchase an additional windshield mount if you will be using the Escort Passport 9500ix in another vehicle. The detector can easily be removed from the mount by simply pressing a button, which comes in handy if you want to switch it into a different car or remove it from sight if your car will be left unattended for a period of time so that it does not draw the attention of thieves.
It also comes with a power adaptor called a SmartCord. The power adaptor offers additional functions such as allowing you to control the volume of the 9500ix. Because the controls are on the adaptor plug, it makes it easier and less obvious to reach when you want to turn it off and on. There is an indicator light on the adaptor plug that will tell you how strong the signal is, which will give you an idea of how close you are to the radar that has been detected.
You will also find an operator’s manual and a travel case made of sturdy aluminum. The operator’s manual will guide you on how to use the different functions of the Escort Passport 9500ix and the travel case will protect the radar detector when it is being transported to a different car or stored away for later use.
When you buy the Escort Passport 9500ix, you will receive a one-year warranty in the case that the radar detector is defective or becomes damaged. With the warranty, if there are any problems with the 9500ix, it will either be replaced or repaired with no additional costs to you.
While the cost of the Escort Passport 9500ix is quite expensive, when you compare the features and the effectiveness of the 9500ix to other radar detectors on the market, you will find that the money is absolutely worth spending. You will not find another radar detector that has the ability to detect and alert you as quickly as the Passport 9500ix.
And, while you may be able to find cheaper radar detectors that may have some of the features of the Escort Passport 9500ix, you will be hard-pressed to find one that includes all of the features in one device that work as effectively as they do in the 9500ix.
