Detectors Tools is currently only Windows compatible. You will need a version of Windows running through virtual machine software on or installed on another partition of your Mac (dual boot).

Default 9500ix 1.8 tools update

I update my tools with 1.8 and lost all of the saved "red light" and "speed trap" locations. Was this a glitch in the update? What can be done to get these locations back?

To clarify, you lost the locations on the backup file saved on your computer or you lost locations on your detector?

If they were deleted from your detector are you positive that you didn't press the "remove" button in Detector Tools? If you notice this happening again then please call us to set up servicing your detector.

I recommend regularly saving a backup of your stored locations with Detector Tools. I do this every time before I merge the latest Defender database on my detector.

No radar detector will detect aircraft. Aircraft use VASCAR to monitor speed. VASCAR is basically a stopwatch that times how long it takes for vehicles to pass a certain distance. Many times the landmarks that they use to start and stop the watch are large stripes painted across the road.

Get a Zaon MRXa. Portable transponders will help you against aircraft.

Default Escort 9500IX can't detect signal

I have a problem with my Escort 9500IX as it will not detect any of the radars on the road, I tried to change its position but it didn't work. I'm suspecting that it could be from my car windshield is coated with a special material to protect from from sun rays. Could it be the case?. I'm driving a Porsche Panamera. Please help.

That is very possible. One way to find out is find a store with an automatic door opener (WalMart, CVS, Walgreens, etc) and park facing the door with the detector mounted on your windshield.

Be sure the 9500ix is in Highway mode and press the GPS button to disable GPS false alert filtering and see if the detector alerts. If it does not alert or barely alerts (low strength) open a window and with the detector plugged in take it off the mount and hold it in your hand out the window. If it alerts or the signal strength changes then your windshield is effecting your detector.

Your only options are finding an area on the windshield that isn't coated or getting a custom installed detector such as our 9500ci, Qi45, or Beltronics STi-R Plus. If you cannot hind an area without this coarting then unfortunately no windshield mounted detector will work for you.

It depends on how many locations are in the Defender database that is loaded on your detector and how many false alerts it has stored but more than you will probably ever need (many thousands).

Should you hit the limit you will receive a "memory full" message. In the several years that we have been using these I haven't heard of a case where someone has hit the memory limit.
