I'm starting this thread to outline some of the finer points of using the Escort Passport 9500ix. Hopefully we can offer some insight into the use of its many features, and this may help others in getting to know their RD
I just took it out of the box, and I am pleased to find it in very nice packaging indeed. I was even more pleased to find that, plugging it in the first time, it worked right out of the box. I was so excited I drove around town 4 laps of my usual route to test the Auto Learn feature, and that worked perfectly on the 4th lap, and its ignoring the usual traffic lights. Triple tap of the mute button quickly and easily set it to ignore the door sensors at the grocery store. Off to a good start!
I'm using the default settings right now, however I did notice that the manual says that POP mode sensing is OFF by default. Can anyone offer some insight to why that is, and if it is wise to turn POP mode on?
Can anyone recommend any other settings that should be changed?
