Ok, I confess. At first I was a little leary of my 9500i when I bought it in
August. Even more so after reading so many of the negative responses
concerning the Ramp-Up and the True-Lock feature. It almost seemed
for a minute that I was looking for almost any reason NOT to like it so I
could return it for a full refund. Well let me tell you, the more I drive with
this thing, the more I'm falling in love with it.
Yes, the Ramp-up is not as good as on my X-50 but oh well, what can I
do. :roll: Thanks to you guys here and all the info that you provided on
True-Lock, I am more comfortable and more selective when locking out
a particular location and it makes for my drive around the city a very
very quiet expereince. My 9500 so far has 5 saves and they all were on
the Interstate with the Illinois State LEOS shooting Ka radar. In all 5
cases there was really no Ramp Up noted but I've trained myself to
immediatly slow down if my 9500 goes off so that seems to work for me.
Now on to my Laser Expereince. I live in a University town where other
than the State LEOs the only other LEOS to have Laser Radar is the
University LEOS. In Illinois, the University LEOS are actually trained
at the State Police Academy and have all the rights and privaleges that
State Troopers have here.
Keeping that in mind, my 9500 has picked up a Laser Alert twice. The 1st encounter, the University LEO was comming toward me about 1/2 mile away, and I think that he was playing with the Laser radar, so the
9500 picked it up...cool, no problem. The 2nd encounter was today,
about 1 hour ago. I was at a redlight 4-way intersection and it went off
telling me I had a Laser Alert. I'm looking all around like
WTF?? I didnt see any LEOS anywhere in eyesight and even if I had
they dont really shoot Laser here in the city.
Could something else be setting off my Laser Alert on my detector??
Also, I want to thank you guys for all the great information on this site
Man, This is almost like have a Radar Detector Class Online.........
