Default Functionality of Defender Database(DD)

I'm not sure this is the right forum for this, but I'm sure the mod will direct as necessary.

As I understand it, the DD accumulates data regarding known threats and the detector continuously searches this data base to warn the operator of known threats. Before I go any further, please correct me if my view of the DD is wrong.

Over time, the DD may get very large. As a result, the detector performance may degrade. Is that accurate or is this true only in theory? Basically, is there a point where there is so much DD that threat detection speed is compromised?

I have never heard of this being an issue. I don't think that would ever become a problem even on an older 9500ix.

This has never been an issue.
The way I recall that it works, is ESCORT'S algorithm does not search the entire expanding Database for Marked locations. Rather it knows where it is located via its onboard GPS and only searches the limited Defender entries in that specific area. This is my best recollection of why the problem does not exist so someone can correct me if they know more/differently.

Defender is a static database. We update Defender weekly but it only changes on your detector when you update it using Detector Tools or when you MARK locations. Detection performance is not affected by how many locations are in Defender.

Escort Radar customer service is available from 9am-5:30pm Eastern Time Mon-Fri at 1-800-543-1608 or by live chat
