I had been a V1 user since its debut in 1994, but had been using it less and less because of its extreme propensity to false. It came to the point that I began ignoring alerts because it falsed so much.

When the 9500ix came out in 2009 I decided to order one and try it out during the 30 day trial period. At first I thought the thing was defective it was so quiet. However, after taking it on a long grueling twelve hour trip I discovered that was not the case. It has exceptional range on K band and both Ka bands used in my state and as far as I can tell I get the same range as my V1, just without the falses. Off axis is excellent. Once I was on the Parkway and picked up radar the rangers were running a good ways back. When I finally came upon the source it was between two sharp curves and they were parked down a side road. That really impressed me.

The auto and manual lock outs work great and as advertised.

Excellent Detector - Great Update System... however
I purchased the $30.00 Super Cup for my new 9500ix- the suction cup stem stretched, and then broke OFF the mount... maybe a bad one so I buy another Super Cup... this is one's suction cup is now stretched, and ready to snap.
I just called Customer Support. After a $60.00 investment, time and frustration; the most she offered was free shipping ($5.00) for another $30.00 "special mount"- ie. a Sticky Mount.

I'm sorry, that's NOT standing behind your product.

Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

I use it to go to work twenty miles Monday thru Friday and it has always saved me from speeding tickets. I also go to Dallas which is five hours from where I live every three weeks and it has saved me multiple times! The false radar auto learn is a great feature too as it stores false radar signals. Easy to use as you can use it right out of the box and don't really have to change any settings.

    Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

    I bought a 8500 X50 in 2008 and can't count the times it has saved me. Every two weeks for the last 6 years I drive 600 to or from work. plus 100 miles a day at work and 500-1000 miles on my days off. two years ago I bought the 9500 xi to upgrade from the X50. in the 6 years I had the old one I got ZERO tickets. the first drive to work with the 9500 Xi I got 2 tickets and another on the way home. I switched back to the X50 and have been pulled over once with it. but that was my fault it worked perfect. Put the 9500 in the girlfriends car and she go lulled over the first time she used it. it is sittin in the junk drawer.

      Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

      I bought my 9500ix way back in May 2010. Not until Jan 2016 did I do it's first update for Firmware and Defender database (forgot to register it when I bought it). I gave it to my Wife a few years ago, and she loved it (still does) and after it's first update, it's even Quieter in town where she does most of her driving. She's really impressed with it, especially when she comes across the "your speed is" signs around town, it stays quiet after it learns it's a false alarm and locks out those signals. The 9500ix also has Great range, picking up LEO's 1.5-3 miles away in the city and 2-5 in the open highway. We take various road trips away from deep south Texas (to CA, AZ and FL), and this unit has saved us many, many times. I can't imagine having anything else with us, except maybe the New MAX 360, which i'd like to try. I highly recommend using this for everyday city or highway driving. You won't be disappointed!!

      About Me Practical

      Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

      I received this radar detector as a holiday gift because I have always wanted one. On my very first highway drive I came around a bend and the trooper got me. No warning whatsoever. Unfortunately, I felt untouchable with my new radar detector but sadly I was wrong. When I called customer service to question its accuracy, they told me that around bends and on hills it's not very reliable. What's the use of having a detector in that case? I would love to return it if possible.

        Comments about Escort Passport Radar Detector:

        This is my second one of this model. I have hard-wire mounted them in my last 8 vehicles! I highly suggest you buy the smart cord as it has a mute button. A good installer can retro-fit the smart cord so it to be mounted in your dash and be used as a permanent remote mute button. I simply place the mute button near my hand so i can quickly mute false signals. Its so much easier than fumbling for the detector and taking your hand far off the steering wheel. Also, the smart cord has lights, so you tend to notice it easier & faster when its visually well placed. Finally, I feel naked when driving cars w/o a passport!

          Have used this detector on my road trips, in Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and it has saved my bacon on numerous occasions. Yes it is annoying when the alarm sounds, but when you eventually pass the speed trap, it is appreciated. That means it senses the trap, long before I see it, and I am continually looking for them. This unit is easy to use, and has never let me down. I have difficulty trusting some thing like this, but have become a believer. I'm seriously considering upgrading to the new Max360, and using this one in my commuter car, with the Max for my road car.
