Product Details

Escort Passport 9500IX Blue Radar Detector - 9500IXBLUE

ESCORT Passport 9500ix GPS Enabled Radar Detector. Our most advanced radar and laser detector. Features GPS technology and pre-loaded database of known red light and speed camera location.

At ESCORT, we're continually improving our line of radar and laser detectors with the best technology. Our latest invention, the GPS-powered PASSPORT 9500ix, is no exception. It provides the best long-range protection against every known radar and laser gun in use in North America, but also incorporates GPS accuracy to silence each and every false alert. We then added a new automatic way of eliminating false alarms called "AutoLearn". This remarkable new feature utilizes our patented GPS technology to identify and eliminate false alarms automatically while you drive using artificial intelligence. Now, the only alerts you will get are the ones that really count! The result is the best possible protection that only ESCORT can provide, without the constant distractions of false alarms. It is by far the most intelligent, fully automatic radar and laser detector ever designed.

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 9500IX Race Edition Radar Detector:

    I have two of these, one in blue and the other in red. The red is easier to see in daylight and at night. Mounting is now better with the new "sticky cups" but even they loose their grip after a while, especially in the sun. There are still some false positives even in "Auto No X" but far fewer than the detector I had before these.

      Comments about Escort Passport 9500IX Race Edition Radar Detector:

      Thought that this detector would pick up all radar signals but unfortunately I was quite wrong. I was clocked in traffic on a california highway & got a hefty speeding ticket. The detector never went off at all. I wasn't going over a hill, or around a corner, it was on a straight flat strip of road. Very unhappy I spent a nice chunk of money on this detector & now going to spend a nice chunk of money on the ticket.

        Comments about Escort Passport Blue Radar Detector:

        Haven't had a radar detector for decades but recently our area has acquired some overly zealous radar operators. This detector is the best defense and can save you hundreds of dollars at least. So far it seems to be a great product. Something I wonder about though is when it is mounted on the windshield, will the solar heat cook the electronics inside; within 10 minutes, it is too hot to touch.

        Delivery was very quick and the website was easy to use.

          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.

            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.
