SC55 appears to be a mistake because of its super short 1100 foot marked trap feature, by the time it alerts you to an upcoming speed trap, you are doomed my friend. Escort has obviously heard complaints on that feature but chooses to ignore folks like myself who have a problem with it. The redlight camera detection is nice but heck I travel a lot of open highways with speedtrap median crossings and need that feature more than anything. What are your thoughts guys? Could I deploy this device in a different manner to make it more effective? Or should I just send it back and let Escort figure out why? I have heard the 9500ix owners have the same speedtrap alert distance problem.
