I've contacted a sales rep of Escort requesting the prices for a 9500ix and 9500ci. He told me that I should wait until the end of the month because a newer and cheaper remote mount radar detector similar to the ci without the laser jammers is going to be released. It hasn't been posted up on the Escort website, and the pricing detail has yet to be received, but all he knows is that there will be one by the end of this month or beginning of next. He said he will send me a brochure as soon as possible. I'm hoping its the ci without the laser jammer and performs like one, hopefully for around $300-400 so it is affordable and comparable to the V1, Sti, and 9500i. GPS camera function would be nice also.
I'll keep you guys posted
here it is so u dont have to scroll down.
the dealers will be able to obtain the unit at a price of $450 + shipping at launch. their profit should be with the installation, and not the sale of the actual unit, so the pricing will be $699 installed, or $499 without. a shifter package is also available for an extra $250.
Let me confirm that this unit does indeed have the M4 antenna that comes with the X50 and 9500ix. Probably worth the buy for $500. Also, the laser kit seems to plug straight into the radar receiver, so you can add it on later without having to go through your firewall again. Nice upgrade if you ask me, for those who doesn't know what blinder and Li are.\
