1. The 9500i gets the jump on my SRX by a few seconds every time, unless the terrain prevents detection, like coming over a hill or around a corner or something.
2. The 9500i is more chatty than the SRX due to the extra sensitivity, when not using the lockout feature, but not annoyingly so.
3. The lockout feature works excellent for me since 99.9% of my LEO hits are Ka or laser.
4. I was sitting at a stoplight next to a shopping center that I had previously locked out and I got a weak Ka hit. The expert mode meter showed 2 K band signals(from the shopping center) and the Ka band signal. So, this means that the GPS feature that quiets the detector in the lockout area and/or while stopped or slowly moving, does not affect Ka band. I also used my laser tester to see if this was true for laser as well, and it was. So, the 9500i will alert you to laser or Ka band regardless of the speed you are travelling. IMO, that's pretty smart, since almost all Ka band hits for me are LEO's. The laser one seems kind of wierd, since what LEO would shoot laser at a stopped car?
5. The only problem that I have with it so far is that the light sensor for the screen doesn't work properly with the 9500i mounted above my rear view mirror. The 9500i thinks that it is always dark in my car, so the screen is always dim, unless I manually set it. Annoying!
6. I will be sending it in for repair, because when I turn it on, the left half of the screen does not turn on about 1/3 of the time, if the unit has been powered down for a while. Cycling the power fixes the problem. I'm relatively sure this is a problem with just my unit, and not the 9500i in general.
Overall, I'm extremely impressed. It's relatively quiet while remaining extremely sensitive. This experience makes me extremely likely to purchase the 9500ci to replace my outdated SRX.
