It definitely feels different. But in some ways it feels worse.
I called in to get my 9500i updated stating "Ramp Up" issues when I called. It came back on the card as "updated software".
Is it just a software upgrade?
While running my old 8500 ramp up seemed smooth and "normal" and very little chatter.
Since using the 9500i it just feels more irratic. Lot less quiet. tends to not ramp up smoothly and seems to jump in the middle (starts off with 30% signal). Not all the time but often.
Was there supposed to be a hardware change too?
How do I know if it working correctly and if I got all the appropriate updates?
Also why the heck when I have a GPS lock and I'm not moving (display say 0 mph) does it have to alert me !! Isn't one of the major features of this thing knowing your speed and reduce falses? At least they should have a user settable threshhold in MPH.
I also wish I could leave voice alerts on but shut off (GPS Aquired/GPS Lost Alerts).
I'm getting frustrated with it, and feels like a V1 with too much chatter.
