    Default Question on the 9500ix


    From what I understand the 9500ix has an Auto Learn feature where, if you go past a bank 3 times (?), it will know it was a false alarm and from then on no longer give an alert. Now this might be a dumb question, but couldn't a police car have radar setup in exactly the same location 3 days in a row, which would cause the 9500ix to lock that location out... making you vulnerable to getting the next time a radar trap is set in that location?? Or does it somehow know the difference between a bank's or liquor store's X-Band and a police car's X-Band (I'm in NJ and they still use X-Band)?

    haha yeahhh they have threads on this and thats a ongoing debate. i think that there is diffrent frequencies of radar so it wouldnt lock out the cops but yes in theory it CAN happen... atleast i think im not an expert haha.

    It can happen and has been claimed to have happened. You can turn the auto learn off if you'd like and manually store them by pressing the mute 3 times. One of the nice/annoying things is that the auto learn will delete the stored location if you pass where a false is and get no alert (I wanna say 2 or 3 times). reason its nice is if it is a real alert it will help, annoying because if its an intermittent false then you'll keep getting it.

    I think police radar is going to be a stronger signal than a false and the 9500 looks for that. Don't know for sure, but there is a strip of 3 false signals where I drive and a cop sits in there alot and the 9500 picks him up, While locking out the false signals. But I also run a V1 so that helps.

    There are videos showing a locked out location and a cop sitting right next to the camera car with constant-on radar running. V1 guys chuckle.
