I've been lurking on here for a few days, doing research on which radar detector to purchase. After reading many post I decided on the 9500i.
I have a 2007 Red Corvette and just got it past the 500 mile mark. So now I can go a "little" faster than 55mph.
I purchased the 9500i yesterday and immediately hooked it up. I went for a "test drive" of the RD yesterday evening. It was very quiet, I almost thought that it was not working properly. That is until I got to an area frequented by the police and radar (where they got me a few years ago). No police in site - no beeps.
Then all at once the voice starts telling me KA, KA. I'm looking for signs of the police and don't see anyone at all. After about 1/4 mile, I look in my review mirror and guess what I see. Sneaking up on me from behind is a police car. I was doing below the speed limit at that point. Then I see him do an illegal U-turn and go the other way. HaHa!!
I would definately say that it is working great! I have to make trips back and forth from St. Louis to Chicago to see my son who is away at college, so this will be great for that long stretch of highway between the two.
So, thanks for all your help in deciding what to buy.
