Hi guys, new here...
1. The Escort ZR4 has the advantage of linking with my 9500ix, but doesn't seem to be a top performing laser jammer. Am I better off buying a Laser Interceptor? I live near the Kansas hometown of Kustom, and there are Kustom ProLasers in operation around here.
2. Is there any advantage to letting the 9500ix Auto-block falses (like passing grocery stores) or is it just as good for me to block them when I know for sure its a false?
3. Is Veil any good without a jammer, or is it a waste of money? (I have no front license plate, just headlights to worry about). I'm currently vulnerable to laser.
4. Has anyone thought to utilize all the USER DATA that is collected when updating the 9500ix to update the Trinity database -- to also update for known local speed traps, known falses, etc? Of course there would need to be some form of confirmation of the data's reliability (like several different user's data agreeing on a given location) but this would seem like very powerful nationwide information that would make the 9500ix rarely false no matter where you traveled. With this information collected from users, then distributed back to the users through updates, it seems to me that the 9500ix would become unbeatably smart.
5. What is a "hard reset," what does it accomplish, and how do you do it in the 9500ix?
My 9500ix experience so far:
I've had this detector for about three weeks now. I had my first save last week on a hilly four-lane residential-area road. I picked up a Ka alert, thought it might be a false from an adjacent building, but slowed down. About 1.5 miles later I encountered the black unmarked rolling traffic LEO in a Dodge Charger in the oncoming lane. Nice to experience how my local enforcement works. We also have one Red light camera operating near us.
My experience with updating the firmware and the Red Light Camera data was easy and flawless. It would be great if there were a way for us to share the data that our detectors collect for a given locality.
This is the quietest detector I've owned, and I've owned many.
