Default What went wrong?

Never mind about the marking location.
I used to have an older Passport 9500IX. I turned off both X and K bands. Everytime I went to the same store, it alerted. Can someone explain?

There did not appear to be enough info to provide you a good response.

1. You mentioned you "used to have" a 9500ix. Does that mean you no longer have it? If you don't then no tests can be run on it nor its settings checked.
2. You mentioned you "turned off both X and K bands" but it still alerted at the same store. You did not mention what type of alert you were receiving. Was it K, X, Ka or laser?
3. You started off with "never mind about the marking location". I do not know what that means and how it relates to the above.

Sorry that we could not be more helpful . .

I'm still not positive what the issue you may have encountered regarding Marking but here is some additional info:

1. Marks. Marking a location where there is not a current warning given is performed by pressing the Mark button 3 times. This will give you a GPS voice warning the next time you approach this location such as "Speed Trap Ahead".

2. Lockouts. Locking out a location where there is a warning given, but you want to silence it is performed by pressing the Mute button 3 times. Lockouts may be Unlearned over time if you keep passing this same location and the signal you locked out is no longer present.

To undo a Mark or Lockout you would press the respective Mark or Mute button 2 times while the signal you want to undo is presently active.

Hope this might add some clarity.

I want to know why there was a warning on K band when it was turned off. Sorry for the confusion.

That is not normally possible however some strong radar sources can create "ghost" reflected alerts on another band. I have seen K band sources create ghost signals to Ka on rare occasions. I have not personally seen that in reverse however.

I vaguely remember some discussion quit awhile back of some individuals that turned off a specific band that caused additional reflected/ghosted signals on another band to be displayed unexpectedly, but as I also best recall, it was not an Escort RD that was being discussed.
