I currently own the Passport 8500 X50 in red, and am thinking about upgrading to the 9500ix this summer (I'm possibly getting a new car). I wanted to know if there has been any hype or rumors about new models coming out though. I know that the new thing is the Escort LIVE! for live updates, but I honestly don't know what I think about that... Yes, it's cheaper than buying a new radar detector, but It's not really what I want. I'm sick of my radar detector going off all of the time. I drive both city and highway frequently, and all of the false alarms make me ignore it, which can be bad. I know where most of the false alarm are, but one time ignoring it when it's actually a cop and .
So yeah, any word about new detectors coming out soon? I don't want to buy a 9500ix and 6 months or so later, it's outdated :X.
By the way, I drive in New Jersey and Long Island mainly, but I go on frequent trips all up and down the east coast.
