Ok I got the new 9500ix yesterday to replace the V1 in my company vehicle. I work in the lot of Metro areas so the V1 tends to go off a lot. I really did not mind it a lot but have been reading here about how few falses the 9500i gets I decided to give the ix a shot. On the way to work this morning after 20 miles of driving, not a peep, is this thing working I begin to wonder. I'm thinking this is kinda nice nothing beeping, not having to mute the detector, zone off into listening to talk radio. All of a sudden, driving about 15 over PSL on I85, the 9500ix speaks. Well this really grabs my attention and I get on the brakes thinking this must be really bad since it has been so quiet. "Red light camera ahead" is what it's telling me. I guess there was a camera on one of the side streets near the Intersate. Well it certainly got my attention, I was not expecting that.
All in all not bad, I kinda miss the arrows. On the 2 Xband hits I got I kept wondering if they were ahead or behind me. But all in all many many fewer false alarms vs the V1. Now I just have to see what kind of sensitivity I get against a real threat, time will tell.
