...or replacement. I called it in today and rec'd a return authorization.
My chief complaint is the ramp-up and my secondary complaint is the lockout.
Basically I am tired of being right next to or directly behind a police car and i get one or two or three beeps and that's it. V1 would be screaming.
I'm tired of approaching a speed trap with lazy, unconcerned beeps and then jump to full-on all LEDs only when i have radar pointed directly at my grill. The 9500i is sluggish and sometimes it performs like it's out to lunch on a break.
I'm tired of spotting police cars FIRST before my 9500i can spot them and this is with radar always on because here in KS, they don't instant-on targets while the squad car is moving (in fact, rolling radar is rare). The 9500i needs to pay attention and stay alert and I'm not so sure it's awake and on the job.
So I asked them to upgrade the unit or better yet replace it. Since I got it in February, they'll try...we'll see. I guess that's the price you pay for silence and with the 9500i, silence is golden. There may be other threads but I will let you know what they do and the timing.
