I have heard of many issues with the unit. Today i encounter a ka band radar and experienced the awful ramp up people were talking about. Mine went from 1 bar 2 bars then full. As soon as the radar passed me the 9500 fell silent instantly. Second, i dont care what escort stated the k band sensitivity IS effected in city mode. I have done numerous tests in highway/city mode over this with the same result over and over. One bar k band in highway, put unit in city and it shuts up. Same with two bars. In Auto sensitivity is effected until about 22 mph. This too i dont like. The gps lock out feature does not work consitently. Sometimes it lockes out pass the same spot later and it alerts. Sometimes when i transmit a k band gun at the known false spot it does not respond. For being the most expensive unit sold i dont think it is worth it. I have had better expeirence with the x60 blue version 5. I think i will try a v1. Does anyone know if the v1 has auto-mute yet???
