I like the unit a lot big improvement over something I don't want to admit to!
After driving around several days it seems to have learned a bunch of stuff. I set the TSR on ( Northeast Ohio area ) and also set SWS on ( not sure why exactly ).
Set it to AUTO ( but thinking of Highway ) and turned the voice off and turned the speed indicator off.
The unit has come off the windshield twice now seems fine ... I have a blendmount alum holder ( attaches to mirror and provides stable mount for detector ) on the way.
Thanks guys for such a good resource out here!
The 9500ix is so smart it is a little intimidating trying to figure out what to turn on and what to leave off.
I do not see me manually marking spots so going to depend on database updates and the unit figuring out things to help me out.
All in all I pretty much know my route to and from work and where the LEOs usually try to get people ... but I still like the 9500ix a lot.
