My 9500I is mounted really high on my windshield above my RVM and partly covered by the dots. I know this decreases the ability to acquire GPS, but i really want it stealthy.
I went to RS and picked up all the chokes i could find. Below are the two (1-ferrite Choke Core & 2-EMI/RFI fighter Choke Core).
My new Blue 9500I takes a lot longer to acquire GPS signal, however its more consistent.
I was surprised how small they were, and the 2nd one is real small.
I mounted them by the RD and found no difference. I mounted them by the hard wired mute button and coiled around 2X and no difference. So far it doesn't work at all.
The one thing it did do is cut out the crackling in my amplified Escort remote speaker when i used on the + power to it.
It takes almost 5-8min or 2 miles or so. The plus is its almost exactly the same every time, the negative is its after a lockout point on my way to work. The only time i get faster acquisition is when its cloudy out. :shock:
Anyone know of a way to increase radar reception? If not I may be forced to mount my 9500I lower to receive a better GPS signal, and I donít want to do that.
