Both the Redline EX and Escort IX have the IVT filtering but it's part analog. The Max line is all digital making the IVT filtering more effective. I'm not saying Escort has abandoned analog IVT...

Maybe you understand this but the "up-grade" is you need to buy a new detector. The 9500ix cannot be sent in to have upgrades added, it's too old of a unit. We have the auto industry to thank for...

Should not be a problem. Don't for get even though you disable say X and K band the detector still functions 100% and picks the signals up it just will not report them to the display.

You will just have to get creative. The mirror has to get power, you might have to run the wire like they did. Some people do a mirror tap as well for power.

Actually the 9500ix is still quite effective at learning and filtering stationary false K band signals like automatic doors. Where it fails is with new vehicle safety systems like CAS and BSM. It...

It looks like he has not logged into the forum since September 2019. Since it was a warranty repair I would bet yes and he has not bothered to report back here on the forum. This is an example of why...

Well it can only be one of several options. The detector is broken, he used X band, he used vascar, or he used laser and you were so close the detector missed the shot. Heck if he was on a side...

This used to mean either you had no GPS signal or the road you were on was small enough that a speed limit did not show up on the service Escort uses. By chance what kind of wifi does your vehicle...

For that repair you will get a brand new looking detector with a warranty. I'm not seeing any other way based on your example.

The 9500ix was a great unit back in the day. With all the new vehicle safety systems that operate on K band the false alerts will drive you nuts. Just like a computer running windows 98 it's time...

Heck pull the fuse on the car for the BSM crap and then test it. That will decide that.

Several things I can think of. 1) make sure you registered the detector with Escort. 2) Make sure you are using a data cable, some are charge only and won't work. 3) Make sure the version of detector...

I suggest you trade that unit in for a newer unit that has digital IVT filtering. You will be glad you did.

Laser is completely different then radar. It's a pulse of light that is very very narrow. At say 800 feet a laser shot is maybe 18 inches in diameter. A radar signal at that distance is say 200 yards...

Yea it should be a false K band alert when this happens. Honda and Acura seem to be the toughest to filter out.

I see. In your post you just said too many false alerts but no examples. If it's defective and under the 30 day trial just return it. That's too bad.
