Ok i had a 8500 about a month ago and had it for 1 week before i found a great deal on my 9500ix.
Now, i had my 8500 on, on my way to pick up the 9500ix. And i got a great last test by picking up a local KA cop way before the car was in the line of sight.
Now my 9500ix i have had for about 2 weeks.
Only seen 3 cops since ive had it but heres the story.
I was on my way back from work which is a 2 lane mini highway (4 lanes total) and i was coming around a wide corner and it went off maybe 2 seconds before i could see him. It went from 0 bars to full signal so i was thinking it was just instant on.
Today i was driving to work and i was at the bottom of a hill and it started going off and as i got to the top a cop was flying over the hill only about 4-5 seconds between when it first beeped and when i saw him. Pretty sure that wasnt instant on.
and also i was about in the same situation with my 9500ix that i was with the 8500 and it didnt seem to pick the cop up as quick. but i was JUST passing a known false location so i still did a fairly decent job but the fact that the false reading is a rid aid K signal and these cops run KA i was expecting it to pick up quicker.
Now i recently bought a car charger splitter when i got the 9500ix would that have anything to do with anything?
I just feel like its not doing as well as the 8500, or maybe im just doing something wrong?
I have had both the 8500 and the 9500ix in the same location as shown below do you think this is a good spot to mount it?
Any help would be great thanks!
