Been running them for almost 10 years and has saved me more than I can count. Both units still work great but with all the false car alerts these days, I updated to the 360c. It seems to work just as well as the 9500ix without as many of the multiple false alerts the 9500ix was prone to. Also the alert direction detection is most handy. Wish laser direction could be included at some point.
Laser is much different then radar so arrows would never work as set up now. Most detectors have one actual laser sensor with a rear light tube that directs a rear shot to the sensor. Laser will not work from the side so you will never have a side shot. Only chance you would have for at least a front or rear arrow would be to have two seperate remote mounted laser sensors. One on the rear end of the car and one in the grill.

Called customer service., after about 25 minutes on hole, she said they have never heard of this problem. I told her to read the many complaints on the boards about this. She issued a return label, that would take apx 2 weeks for them to fix.
Yeah, their support people told me the same BS - that they would fix it for $100 if I sent it in because "There is an internal calibration problem we'll have to fix." I bought a 360 Max, but later went ahead and did the power-on reset on the 9500ix a few times, then tried the firmware/defender update again and it went through correctly - so now I have 2 detectors.

$40 credit on trading-in, or $99 to fix it. I'm glad I waited and reset it.

Actually, you can say that NO speed radars work correctly from any more than 30 degrees off axis. Any more than that and the amount of frequency shift is so little that a car doing 60 would read around 40 or less. By the time you get to 90 degrees the indicator would read 0MPH.
