....from one of those free-standing radar displays. That's right, it was unmanned and it was around the bend and in plain sight. I was coming around the corner at about 35 mph when I could look ahead and see my speed in big lighted numbers and then all of a sudden, my 9500i went to full-alert. It's as if I got hit with instant-on. I couldn't believe it.
So I went around again for a second try as I passed the unit going the opposite direction, I could pickup a few beeps so I know it was in always-on mode. Then I came around for a second try and it went beep, beeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppp....that's sucks.
So what's wrong? Is the 9500i trying to tune out a non-police radar? This is not a GPS lockout site but GPS was on so is 35mph slow enough to affect k-band in H-mode?
I can do this over and over, I can repeat it. I'm going to take my V1 and X50 over there and if they perform better, I'm going to declare the 9500i sucks to everybody I know. I'm not mad yet because the 9500i does seem to respond properly to real police radar encounters on most ocassions but as you all know, you're radar detector needs to be on the job always, not just part-time.
