We are pleased to announce the availability of a software update for the Passport 9500ci w/Laser ShifterPro* which adds the following features:
  • Ka band segmenting - The ability to enable and disable certain frequency segments of the SuperWide Ka band. ONLY expert detector users should change these settings. It is possible to disable detection of true Ka police radar.
  • RDR toggle - The ability to disable Radar Detector Rejection false alert filtering.
You can adjust the new Ka band segmenting and RDR features in two ways; on the system itself, or by using Escort Live:

- In the Passport 9500ci's settings menu, turn "Ka SW" off then turn on the Ka segments that you would like the 9500ci to detect.

- In Escort Live's "Radar Settings" menu, turn "Ka" off then turn on the Ka segments that you would like the 9500ci to detect. If you leave the "Ka" setting on then the segment settings will not take effect.

- RDR is listed in the "bands" settings, after TSR. Disabling RDR will enhance radar detection performance but with increased Ka false alerting. Disabling un-needed Ka segments will help reduce Ka false alerting.

Once you set these options then they will remain set in your 9500ci, even between power cyclings, until you change them or restore the unit's factory default settings.

The Ka segment frequencies, in GHz, are:
Ka1 = 33.392 - 33.704
Ka2 = 33.704 - 33.896
Ka3 = 33.886 - 34.198
Ka4 = 34.184 - 34.592
Ka5 = 34.592 - 34.808
Ka6 = 34.806 - 35.166
Ka7 = 35.143 - 35.383
Ka8 = 35.378 - 35.618
Ka9 = 35.595 - 35.835
Ka10 = 35.830 - 35.998

Only enabling segments Ka2, Ka5, and Ka8 should cover most users in North America.

Thank you for choosing Escort Radar!

* Systems with Laser ShifterPro have serial numbers that begin with 63. In early 2015 we will be releasing this software for older 9500ci systems with serial numbers beginning with 16.
