I really wanted to have some of the features Jim's prgram had for the 9500i. I would like to see what's locked and possibly do some cleanup or change some to manual locks so they don't get removed.
After pounding my head on the wall for a couple weeks and several helpful discussions with Jim I think I'm throwing in the towel.
It appears the data transmission is encrypted. It's encryption key I believe is a combination of wall time and serial number. So that you cannot share camera database or even manual or automatic lockouts.
I did manage to get it to switch to USB mode automatically in software and back out. I learned how to communicate with it in a "Block Mode" to avoid data overruns and underruns in "stream mode".
I can't really blame Escort for encrypting it because they need to protect their redlight database revenue stream.
I could be wrong and it's doing something simple but when it's data changes over time it's really hard to decode it.
