Default Honda/Acura BSM False Alerts

What is the best setting to filter out false alerts caused by Acura BSMs? I am on a trip and I cannot find a setting recommendation on-line. I am having to unplug the radar detector because the false alerts are so bad. I love my 9500ix so please tell me that the frequency used by Honda/Acura has not rendered my 9500ix as obsolete! Thank you.

Sorry to say your 9500ix is 'outdated and obsolete'.

With all of the vehicles on the road with BSM systems you need a detector that can filter these out. Escort using what they call IVT filtering, which your unit does not have.

I would recommend updating your detector. If you stick with Escort I would look at the Max line and would avoid the new iXc or older iX as they are analog and not digital. The Max series offers the best filtering on Escorts products.

Bingo. Sorry to say older detectors like the 9500ix have zero filtering for these new vehicle safety systems. Even the replacement model called IX is not as good as it needs to be. For the best filtering you will need to step up to an all digital Max series detector.

But the Max doesn’t detect MRCD.
