Not much of a response really:
It's good to hear from you. It sounds like the 9500i is performing as designed, so I do not expect this will be something addressed in future updates.
Thanks for your interest in Escort!

I am very disappointed. I just drove an hour to New York to purchase a newly manufactured 9500i (2907), thinking the audio ramp up had been fixed. I tested it 4 times on a speedsign near my house. The audio goes from a beep, up to full alert with no ramp up in between. I am disappointed because I thought this had been fixed. Do you have more current models that it is fixed on?
