Even though I currently have a Valentine 1 and several Belscort units I've become interested in the newly updated Escort Redline. However, I do wish Escort released these features on the 9500ix. My only issue with segmenting a Redline is that I live in an urban environment and without the ability to mute k band alerts I would go crazy. My V1 does an excellent job of keeping annoying k band alerts muted. I know the RL can be connected to Escort Live, but the idea of having to pay for an additional service for a $500 dollar RD is unnerving.
I know the RL is a great detector; however its extreme off-axis sensitivity would make it impossible to use in a polluted K band environment. The M4 based 9500ix on the other hand would be able to block out lane assist systems much easier due to its design. Its poor off-axis detection would be a plus for me, however it wouldn’t make any sense for me to purchase one at this point, as it is merely a rebadged V995 with a condenser lens and GPS filtering. Does anyone know if Escort plans on releasing this update for any of its models in the next year or 2?
