With all that has been said by the owners of the 9500i regaurding poor ramp up compared to lets say the X50, and the response given by Escort and certain folks, ie: "The 9500i ramp up is working as designed", I have one question. Why in the hell does the explanation of alerts for the 9500i and X50 read word for word in their owners manuals? I invite you all to have a look at this. http://www.escortradar.com/manuals.htm If they are indeed supposed to work differently because the 9500i is "different", then why do they rubber stamp their manuals? Just a thought. :?
