I think we should take action and let escort know that we feel a $130 price to upgrade our 9500i's to 9500ix's is too high when considering the difference in cost being only $50.
1. the price difference is $50.
2. the cost of a 3-yr subscription is only $30.
this upgrade should not cost us $130, max: $80.
According to their customer service, Escort may consider adjusting the upgrade price. Escort hopes to make this upgrade available to customers sometime in August, thus it would be in our best interests to write Escort with the above complaint prior to the official availability.
By making the upgrade cost closer to the difference, I would not feel as though Escort was intentionally trying to deceive us or to suck money out of us but that they are trying to help us and keep valuable, committed customers.
I hope that this input helps.
