Coming across the causeway that spans Lake Pontchartrain and connects the Northshore and NOLA, I got two KA hit on my new 9500ix. I began noting the mileage on my car each time and when I finally ran up on both of them, it was nearly six miles, each time! This was at night, light traffic with varying degrees of straightaways and sloped roadway. I am very pleased with this radar. It is crazy quiet around the city, and when it does detect a false it is locking it out as advertised after the third hit in the same area. Great RD. I know there may be more advanced remote models with greater range such as the 9500ci or even the V1, but for the average joe trying to give himself an edge this is a great unit. Looking forward to getting a jammer to counter the laser next!
