    “USB Port: Initially the USB port will allow the user to store and update marked locations of speed traps into their computer and will also allow users to share their information. Escort says that they also plan on offering “marked locations” to users so they can download a larger database. This USB port can also be used to do diagnostic testing and updating the firmware, however they will not commit to a time frame when this feature will be activated.”

    Way to go Escort!

    Roy is the A-hole? LOL. Step up to the plate honey and collect the 50k if your product is so good.

    Hats off to Roy and other who stand up to the scam artists. Keep up the great work!

    I have the 9500i, I Talked to the service people at Escort and was a little disapointed to find out that when you block a false alarm on a band, Say k for example, it locks out the hole k band not just the exact frequency that is the false alarm. I hope they would get the tests compleated sometime soon compairing this to the 8500 x50 and the bel65. I just took back the x50 due to the extream false alarms. But it seams the 9500 might have lest sinsitivy than the x50. If so I might send it back and get the bel65.

    Only if Escort would send GPS coordinates via the USB port. Then I could hook it up to my laptop and mapping software.

    dynamix should be embarrased. That was one of the most illiterate comments I’ve ever read.

    Are you sure about that?

    Escort is advertising that it locks out the frequency and it will detect a different frequency in the same location.

    Would like to know which is which before a drop $450 to update from an 8500

    dynamix comment is critical to my choice too. Of all the new whiz-bangs, locking out local falses with GPS is the only one I care about, and the only reason not to buy the Bel Driver with its Stealth invisibility FOR THE SAME PRICE. Awaiting qualified confirmation or denial. If this is whole band lockout, my money will go elsewhere.

    My V1 was just stolen and am looking for a replacement. How does 9500 compare with latest Valentine?

    Dear Roy,

    I am from Europe. Which RD you suggest me to buy – STI or 9500i? When will you test 9500i Stealth Capabilities against VG-4 and Spectre II/III? Why STI doesn’t have Ku-band? I don’t know what type RDD our traffic police is using but they anounce that can detect all radar detectors etc.

    Best regards,

    Carry Grain

    When I purchased my first Escort 8500, it was boasted to be upgradable. I inquired, $50 credit and buy a new one. Escort has won me over with thier words of service/upgradability. But now I live in Virginia, I spent the money on the BEL STi. I don’t think it is as good as my previous Escort, seems to be a little slower in response, but I have that “STEALTH” feature to keep the detector from being detected. Wish Escort would add that in a detector like BEL did, I would then come back to Escort.

    Just a quick note about Escort’s great customer service: I own an Escort Passport 8500, which I love, but on a recent trip I lost one of the suction cups that holds the detector to the windshield. I called Escort to obtain a replacement suction cup, expecting to pay at least a shipping fee. Nope! They just took my address and send they’d send a replacement cup out immediately, free of charge. I’ll also say that I’ve dropped the Passport 8550 at least three times and left it in a closed car in 100 F degree heat (so it was probably 120+ in the car), and it still works perfectly.

    I just upgraded from a X50 to the 9500i. For me the feature I was looking for was the speed measurement. Was impresed that all the hard were worked from the 50 so no changing the car from there just plug, program and play. I read that the when TrueLock is used that it only ignors that frq. Or am I reading this wrong? Other than that Wow!

    How does the escort 9500i perform in the detection of side/rear photo radar?

    Thanks

    I work in Law Enforcement. And there is no way for us to detect that you have a radar detector unless we see it on your windshield. This STEALTH mode seems like a sales ploy.

    I guess I take it back. I did some research. Just from my experience (Wisconsin) we dont have those devices.

    is the speed measurement based on the GPS on the 9500i accurate? there is about a 4-5 mi difference with respect with my spedometer at speeds above 60mph. i would assume that the 9500i speed is more accurate, however, every ticket for speeding i have received has been more or accurate to the best of my judgement. Anyone have similar discrepancies? is it possible for the GPS based calculation to be “off?” thanks

    So what ever happened to the “database” for the 9500i model?
    “Escort says that they also plan on offering “marked locations” to users so they can download a larger database.”

    I see now they have come out with a 9500iX model with those features.
    Have we early adopters been left behind?

    The Cobra ESD 6060 Is A Sensitive Detector And Yes It Is A Good Detector But I Personally Use Valentine 1 Because It Works Better For Me. You Get What You Pay For
