I had to bolt back on the Garmin Quick-Mount plate to the newly repaired 9500i (lack of satellite reception fix).
When I took the three screws out, I had to look at the innards. The aluminum microwave horn has a strange fin (partially) down the middle of it - almost dividing the horn into two vertical parts. Maybe 1-2 mm wide.
It doesn't completely separate the single horn into two horns, but maybe 80% (reason I used the word "partial").
Anyone know why they would divide it into two? Seems it would really make the unit very directional by bisecting the horn as it does.
The horn is very deep and looking at it from the top, it appears as though it were aimed for a pickup for oncoming radar and the rightmost portion aimed for the side of the road.
:?: :?: :?:
Aside, the speaker is huge. Probably because it isn't a piezo-alarm type, but also a speaker for the "Voice" alert, imo.
