My reflashed 9500i: Initial Impressions...
I have now had a solid week to use my 9500i which was reflashed to fix the ramp-up bug. The ramp-up now is smooth and very strong. I am surprised that Escort made the ramp-up so strong, but many people here really wished that the 9500i would have just as strong of a ramp-up as the 8500 X50. It definitely does and maybe then some. Following is a rough graph of how the ramp-up, based on my observations, seems to behave:
Gone now is the sudden jump from a very weak alert to a very strong alert for a steadily rising radar signal. The ramp-up is very smooth yet is quick to follow any sudden changes in the actual strength of the radar being received. This is really good since the ramp-up should rise very rapidly when encountering radar which is about to be unmasked by terrain during around-the-curve and over-the-hill encounters. I haven't had a chance to verify this since all radar hits during the last week have been from approaching patrol cars on relatively straight and flat roads.
Note that my graph shows that my 9500i displays a fairly rapidly increasing ramp-up as the actual radar signal increases from a very weak one to a very strong one. Escort has fully tweaked the ramp-up to give you a very strong alert well before you are are about to be clocked by the radar gun. I suspect that Escort did this since low power radar guns seem to be becoming all the rage with law enforcement, and since you still want a decently strong alert when encountering one of these low power radar guns.
I did some more testing of the TrueLock feature. Unfortunately there have been no apparent changes. For example, I locked out one particular location which has one door opener which apparently has a frequency which is very close to that of my K band transmitter. After power cycling my 9500i and driving back to to the lockout location, its GPS icon merrily started spinning when I turned on my K band transmitter. My transmitter produces a full strength K band alert on any radar detector. I was hoping that there had been a change in the TrueLock feature such that an extremely strong signal would override the lockout. Not so.
Well, this sums up my further impressions of my reflashed 9500i.
