Ok. First, while I may be listed here as a "Newcomer" I have been here for a while, but posted only a few times. I visit often to read the posts/experiences and to keep up to date with the latest information and tests (thanks Roy and GOL!). In my 32 years of driving I have owned many a detector from the Fuzzbuster (remember those ) in the 70's to the X50 and V1 today.
I think most everyone would agree that the number one complaint with RD's is the number of falses they receive. Hence RD manufacturers are constantly faced with balancing sensitivity/radar detect range with increased falsing. Now, with the arrival of the 9500i and its GPS assisted lockout function, perhaps Escort will now increase its sensitivity to that "of" or "beyond" the V1 increasing its detection range. The increased number of "falses" that would accompany this could then be identified and locked out leaving a RD with the best range/detection ability on the market (save for LIDAR where V1 will still trump).
