This is my first post on the forum and it is about a full burst false laser alarms and a great variation between two escort passports 9500i.
I have recently purchased two 9500i, one is mounted on a 2007 subaru impreza wrx and the other is on a subaru b4 3.0r. The detectors were purchased in the US and are currently used in Israel.
The wrx detector is constantly screaming out false laser alerts in full burst, not even a little hint at the beginning.
To check up on things I mounted the second detector and tried it out at the same locations, no alerts were issued.
I then mounted both detectors together side by side and at the same locations the wrx detector kept on alerting false laser alerts and the b4 detector kept silence.
I sent the false alerting detector back to the US and under warranty had it replaced with a new one.
The situation remains as was, false full burst laser alerts at the same locations.
I get various laser alerts all over the country.
One night on a highway I was driving alone on the road and I see up ahead a police car and a cop siting and aiming a laser gun at me,I was then in the legal speed limits but then the detector remained silent,not a sound,I guess he saw the cops and decided to use the right to remain silent.....lol
Another thing I noticed is that on a highway with orange lights as soon as I reach 200km/h the detector starts screaming full burst laser alerts.
With KA bands the detectors is helpful.
I have to admit it is quite frightening these full burst alerts.
Does anyone know of this problem and maybe advise me on the subject?
Is there any software/firmware upgrade for this detector.
Is there anything I can do to get the detector to detect?
