I was somewhat diappointed in the Camera Update Subscription Fees being charged by Escort after 3 months on their $499 9500ix radar detector. Im my view, free camera updates should, at least, be included with the unit during the warranty period.
Escort is using Cheetah's Trinity Database for their camera locations, and on Cheetah radar detectors, Cheetah provides lifetime updates on camera installations at no additional cost. It's included in the price of the unit.
Escort should do the same.
