I drove from South Bend, IN to Atlanta Georgia last weekend and I used the 9500ix for the return trip. I thought it would at least alert me to one speedtrap for a 850 mile trip but it didn't. The Escort speedtrap database needs some work. I am sure along the way there could have been a few verified speedtraps.
It did well against the RLC's while driving around Atlanta, I used trapster also and I does alright on the rural interstates but once you get into larger towns it alerts every mile it seems. I wish there was a happy medium between a alert every mile and no alerts.
