Well yesterday i received my 9500ix and was able to get my first test run using it.
I have a speed sign down the street from my house and was able to make three runs at it with both my new 9500ix and my 8500x50 radar detector . Both were mounted high and i only used one detector at a time. The road with the speed sign is fairly straight.
First off i must say the 9500ix is a very nice detector and i do like it but overall i could not tell much difference between the two detectors. The difference was so little that i could not even get the 1/10th mile ticker to roll over the difference was that little.
Things i don't like.
1. I was expecting a much greater difference between the two detectors .
2. The mounting of the 9500ix is a little annoying for my truck because of the window curvature. My 8500 was angled more to the driver and fit nicely above my mirror. The 9500ix is not curved like the x50 so its a little harder to see from the driver seat.
Anyway ill give you guys more updates as the weeks progress, maybe it was just a fluke or something but overall im not extremely impressed.
Hopefully it will get better
