I bought a used 9500ix off of a guy on craigslist. It came with just the radar detector, smartcord and suction mount. I went to EscortRadar.com and purchased a 3 year subscription for updates. I do not have a key code for this detector, so I called Escort to get one from them and they say they can't help me because I don't know the original owner that first registered the detector with them. They want the original owner to call them and tell them that I purchased it from him. The problem is, the guy I bought it from said he does not know the original owners name because he bought it used at some kind of sale where they don't know the original owners name. I explained this to EscortRadar.com over the phone and they will not do anything for me. I even asked if they would get a hold of the original owner and of course, they said no.
Am I totally screwed here? Any help you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
