As a former Cincinnati Microwave employee from 1983 through 1989, and a V1 owner from 1997 to date, I am about to go 'home' to Escort. The fact that my state has discovered the revenue generation of red light cameras and photo radar has promted me to consider the Passport 9500.
I am truly aware that the V1 is superior as a radar 'receiver', and will continue it's use in my Interstate travel.
I need something to wake me up during the daily commutes of threats such as red light cameras and photo radar; lets face it, Escort leapfrogged all of the competition on this one putting GPS technology to use as a better mousetrap fighter.
Anyhow, I have a few questions:
1) Does anyone know if Escort has any refurb units for sale?
2) Are the discounters on eBay legit?
3) How often do I need to update the database?
4) Can you uplaod to the detector all red light cameras for the USA?
Thanks for any advice and opinions. Have a nice day, Bill
