I havent owned my 9500ix long enough to have any "saves" yet, but I was driving through a small town tonight and was impressed with the K band range it has.
Coming off the highway I quickly picked up a C/O K radar from about ~1200 ft away (checked later with google earth). As I approached the two sheriffs (one was shooting Ka towards opposing traffic), I realized he was back quite a way between two buildings, not even shooting down the road. Without a detector, I wouldn't have known he was there until I was passing him.
I turned around and got a video of it, but I was using my iPhone and was more concentrated on holding a perfect speed (they're anal in this area) than holding the phone steady.
