I just found this forum when searching for answers regarding my 9500i that I received Wednesday. It seemed to be working fine until I started my car Thursday (yesterday 4/12/07). I attached the RD to the windshield bracket after starting my car and plugged in the cord...as soon as it confirmed that the GPS signal was activated, it sounded a K band full alert, then switched to Ka then X and kept alerting in a random sequence with variable frequency levels. I unplugged it, plugged it back in...same thing. I then tried it later while driving down the interstate...same story.
I called Escort this morning and they are sending me a new one next day air, Saturday delivery, shipping paid by them with a return postage tag for the old one. I decided if there is a problem with the new one I will get the V1. I really bought the 9500i just in hopes of it decreasing false alarms, I probably should have done more research first but I'll give it another chance. Any thoughts on what could have caused this to happen?
