I'm looking to upgrade my x50 to the newest model, the 9500ix, and have a few questions. To clarify, my biggest concern with a detector is range on K/Ka bands. I am not interested in the V1.
First, is the detection range on the 9500ix better than the x50? Escort's website says the detection range between the x50/9500i/9500ix are all the same, but independent tests like the one from GOL show the 9500 having up to twice as much range in some cases. Am I going to notice an increase in range by upgrading?
Second, I heard *Rumors* that Escort may be releasing an upgrade to their CI model around June. Do you guys think they will do the same for the IX? I know these are just rumors, but would you buy the IX now or wait to see if they announce an upgrade to this model in the coming months?
Thanks for the great resource you've got here and I'm looking forward to your responses.
