Not What I Expected
from Winston-Salem, NC
Comments about Escort IX Grey Radar Detector:
Got my new IX for Christmas to replace my IQ. Been using it for a week now and am very disappointed. The new magnetic mount is useless. It keeps falling off the mount every time a pull into my driveway over the slight curb and when crossing train tracks. The bad thing is that it is hard wired and pulls the wire from behind the head liner. Going to tie wrap it to the mount to keep it from falling off. Another thing that is lacking is the App as each time you turn the car off to run into a store the App will not reconnect automatically. Why does every one think that their product has to have an App to operate. The App has to alway have location services on and phone battery life is shorten. This is not a product that i believe is the quality that Escort puts out. I have a 9500 in my other car and it is properly the best product of all detector i have every owned. The IX is no more than a detector since the App is useless and i do not need any more Apps on my phone. If looking for a good detector, i do recommend Escort as they are the best detector but not the IX. Hopefully Escort will get the issues resolved. Also, look at the reviews of the App in your App Store and you can see it is rated overall at 3 stares.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

New Escort iX is Awesome !!
By Z06 Owner
from San Diego, CA
I live in CA where this is quite a bit of traffic, convenient stores, automatic alarms and door openers that can cause false alarms. I researched for quite a while and landed on the new Escort iX. The iX magnet mount is strong and I personally love it. Set up is very intuitive and easy to use although I have not used the Escort Live. I have it set at bright and the display is very good 90% of the time. I commute 140 miles a day, about 50/50 - highway/city and I drive the same roads daily. I set the Escort iX at "Auto-low-K" just to make sure I lower the risk of the K band collision sensors on the new cars. The first day I will say the detector was going crazy with X, K bands alerting continuously to the point of me wanting to turn off the X band, but I wanted to do a real world test so I left it on. Within the first 3 days of my commute, to my surprise, the X, K band false alarms started to vanish. One by one, I would hear one high pitch beep and "Stored" on the display. The GPS was doing its job and turning off the false alarms to the point of where I now have a very quiet, if not silent radar detector. I tried the manual push button "marking" of a false alarm and it worked fine, locking out that location. The band will still show up on your display but it will be "grayed out" and silent. I have encountered Ka & LASER and both alerted strong. I do not have any collision sensor alerts and drive next to these cars daily. Detector does run very warm to hot but it is a phenomenal detector. I'm extremely happy and highly recommended the new iX.

Sounds awesome but K bad false positives still an issue!
It doe NOT block all of the K bad radar from new cars, especially when it is one you are driving, very frustrating. WAY too many K band false positives.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was a little disappointed with this detector.
from Frisco, TX
This is a good detector in nearly every way. However, I had two incidents over the weekend that concerned me. The detector was showing a very weak Ka warning, one bar. However, the officer was visible and I could see him clearly with the radar gun. It wasn't until I was directly in front of him that the detector displayed full signal strength. The first time that happened I wrote it off. The second time I was unable to see the officer. The detector fluctuated between one and two bars of Ka band detected. It wasn't until I was literally 20 yards away from the radar gun that the detector started showing full bars. After that, I had enough. I think it is possible my detector was faulty so I have returned it and decided to upgrade to the Max 360.

Not much different from my redline except just slightly less range.The new mag sticky windshield mount is outstanding.

Just bought on installment plan Escort IX after using a friends for a few days excellent detecting Ka radar, display can be hard to read in bright light and buttons can be hard to read for some users. Not a big fan of the magnet suction cup, still need time to get use to it. Escort IX well built radar detector, it responds quicker than Escort 9500IX and better at detecting Ka radar.
