So I just got my 9500ci installed last week on my 2009 C63 AMG. Please see pics below for my radar receiver placement.
I was driving about 90 on a familiar highway, had GPS enbled, POP enabled, Auto mode enabled, etc. I was going up a minor hill and at the top was the State Police facing my direction. I saw him before my radar alerted and was able to slow to 80 (which is the speed listed on my ticket).
What the heck? I know I'm not invincible in this thing, but this was a fairly good line of sight. The ticket did not indicate what kind of radar was being used. I was also surrounded by many other cars going rather fast, but I was gaining on the cars in the left lane. So I figure he had been shooting the radar gun even well before I approached?
Needless to say after dropping $2,000 including install, I'm not happy.
In retrospect I should have spent more time doing the speed limit and seeing how this device responded when faced with speedtraps before I started getting more liberal with my speed.
Any advice welcome, and I'm expecting a few ha ha's--I can take it.
