I am disappointed in the way the 9500i ramps up when alerting you to radar ahead. As you approach, the braps start out slowly and are spaced fairly far apart. The closer you get the faster the braps, the less spaced apart they are. Eventually when you are really close, the braps should melt into a steady solidy alert tone. This ramp-up should be smooth and steady and continuous over the entire course (no matter if 5 seconds or 55 seconds in duration) if your speed is steady, radar is stationary, and the radar signature is stable/linear...whatever.
However, on the 9500i, the ramp up lingers way too long on the low end where the braps are still spaced far apart and long in between, even after I am almost right up on the radar source. I can see the radar and I'm nowhere close to a steady tone from the 9500i. The [long] time between braps makes me think the radar is at least a mile away when in fact, it is less than a quarter mile or less. Then all of a sudden, the braps ramp up quickly to a solid tone in a matter of a few seconds or less, completely skipping everything in between, straight to "I am being clocked." To me, this is unacceptable and needs to be changed. What do you think?
