Default The internal memory of the detector Escort

It has long been a question that I want to get the answer. What is the amount of memory (the number of fixed radar points) in Escort detectors? Different memory capacity of different devices 9500, PASSPORT MAX, REDLINE EX? Did appliances early models (9500 for example) , has a smaller memory?

I donít believe that Escort has ever said anything about this, other than there is ample memory for your marked/learned locations.

TBNTX is right. After all these years I do not remember ESCORT ever putting a number out there on its GPS Lockouts or Marks, except saying there is plenty of space.

I had over 1000 on my 9500ix and never ran out of room. I can only assume the MAX line has even more.

Last time I backed up my 9500ix the backup file (which is variable in size) was only 17kb. The MAX has a fixed backup file size of 16,128kb no matter how many or few Marks/Lockouts there are. The current version of Detector Tools Pro does not support backups as did regular Detector Tools (DT). When you back up using DT it tells you how many Marks/Lockouts you have.

Additionally, ESCORT's GPS equipped detectors have "AutoUnlearn". This feature automatically clears out stale lockouts on the fly, so that stale lockouts are tossed out over time, further cleaning out memory space.

Guys, I asked you something else. On functions adding ban points and adding new (???) I where read information: about 5,000 points. I don't know whether it's true or not. I have question on the other topic. For example right now in my country (Kazakhstan) - about 2,000 stationary radar. What if their will become 8-10K ? Will there be enough memory in the 9500 (for example) to update the stationary bases, they all got into the memory of the device? For example, I have a 9500, version of the INTL. That means there'll be a fixed radar base in Europe, right? Very interested in this question. Asked to comment on.

ESCORT is going to have to answer you directly on that, but I have a feeling you will get the same answer, namely that "there is plenty of space" to add fixed points in the database.

Given the small amount of space that user-added data takes (as referenced in the previous post) it would be my pure guess that there is in fact plenty of room. However, you will have to wait for ER to respond with a more definitive answer.

I have already explained why I am interested in this issue. I think that would be interesting to know many. Why I do not like the answer : there is quite a lot of space? I used to have an Escort 9500. He me been an option for on 100%. On alert on stationary radar, he me liked more, than Max. In Max, even if I was driving very fast, the maximum alert range was about 400 meters. Have a 9500 (same speed) is about 700 meters. But they told me, man, change your 9500 to Max. He has more memory. I changed. Now I have a EX. Does that mean there's more memory? That is why I ask simple question: me not interested in volume memory in bytes (there is no difference, on their own I mark point or my the device warns me on base stationary radar). I'm interested in is the number of possible points: 5000-10000-50000...
