I just installed the 9500ix today.
There is a speedcam a few miles from my house so I drove over to it to test the 9500. As I approached, the unit was silent and I assumed it didn't have the location in the database.
So i reached to mark the location and just as i did, the 9500 alerted me of 'speedcam' - but at this point, i was basically on top of the speedcam (within 20 feet maybe). It said 300, 200, etc, but by the time it thought i reached the speedcam, i had already driven at least 150 feet past it.
So i guess either the gps signal wasnt good or the database didnt quite have the right location?? Both scenarios are not good, though i hope its the second case - an isolated incident maybe.
The GPS aspect of the detector is great, but if it doesnt alert you till its too late to slow down, then what good is it?
Anyone have any ideas? I changed the preferences to display my speed at all times (trying to check the GPS signal) and it was pretty accurate. Maybe 1-3MPH off, or 1-2 seconds behind...
