Default 9500CI and LSP?

Hi,

I spent about 2k for a 9500ci with laser front, back in mid-2015.
Do I have the Laser shift Pro? It wold seem I do when the unit Identifies as LSP.

the question is, how do I reach it to update it. I have one update port the installer put under my dash and that reaches the 9500ci.
I see no option or connection to the lasers.

Help please.

Also, is there a firmware coming for 9500ci that will reduce K falsifying? I never get false KA or Laser, but my K band goes of every 2 miles or so. Its really constant.
I have to keep K on cause my local PD uses a K band Raptor gun from Kustom Signals. Otherwise I would turn it off.

*** For Escort Rep. ***********
What are my options if I want no false Kband alerts? Can I buy and swap out a controller or would I have to deinstall my unit and reinstall another?

Thanks for the help!!!

Unfortunately your unit is outdated now and Escort had to upgrade to a new unit called Maxci and Max360ci. It has a new digital receiver for the front and excellent false alert filtering. It also has a new laser shifter set that will address the newer threats out there today. There will be no more updates at all for the old unit and I would strongly suggest upgrading to the new unit in order to get almost zero false alerts, best range, and best laser coverage.

With all due respect, the entire UNIT is NOT outdated, as the 9500 ci remains one of Escorts best remote units. The lidar/laser part is what's the issue here. Most of what you'll see outside of the cave dweller will be recognized by the LSP and may act accordingly. Newer guns are the issue and LSP can not handle those. The beauty of the 9500 ci though is that its basically a Stir_O with some add ons and the Stir-O is the finest of all ER remotes ever made. Turn RDR off and seg the Ka band and its still one helluva of radar detector. Problem wil be K band falsing of course and you can alleviate that by turning off K band if you can in your area. The9500 Ci is still a fine RD by any measure.

Sure it is a fine detector! But for the reasons you mention above is why I would not recommend it. Too much K band noise!
