Ok, I love playing with detectors so I added the 9500i to my collection. I currently have a RX65, V1, Some Whistlers and a Cobra 9930. RX65 is my daily unit and V1 for my long highway trips.
The 9500i seems to have much less range than the RX65. The detector was very quite and too quiet in my opinion even without me setting any lockouts. With absoluely no lockouts in Auto mode it would not pick up my local wallgreens auto door opener at approx 100 ft.. Putting the detector in highway mode set it off but at 100 ft away I got fluctuation between 1-2 bars.
My RX65 picks up that false at a good 150 or more feet which leads me to think either this 9500i is bad or its just does not offer the range as my RX65. I cant understand why in Auto or City mode the 9500i does not pick up this door sensor... Again this location is not locked out. Does its Auto & City mode reduce sensitivity that much?
