    UPDATE:

    After driving around with my 9500ix today, i can safely say i am super glad i got it over the V1. Turns out we have a bunch of x/k-band radar door openers along US41, and we also have a bunch of k-band traffic sensor/red-light sensors near where i work. After driving by 3 times, it automatically silenced it. Theres a really strong k-band door sensor that it hasnt blocked out yet, but i dont go by it often (once a week?).

    So, loving my 9500ix so far Click here to enlarge All the doors/sensors on the road have been x or k band so far, and the 5.0 is Ka according to @E90SoFlo so i should be fine.

    Correct if you get KA its 100% a cop

    K/X is 95% a door or something similar.

    Cape coral cops run K.

    GPS Click here to enlarge Quite an interesting concept. You can also make your own alerts for common police encounters using GPS

    Had the V1 for 3 years, and just recently switched to 9500ix. My driving is mixed highway/city.So far i like the escort better, especially the gps lockout and the red light camera warnings. Looking to complete the setup by with laser interceptor sometime this year.

    I dislike (not in a negative way, although it seems that way) this thread... I already have the escort 8500 which works pretty well, but now making me want to get the 9500, and jammers... As if I didn't have enough mods already planned for my new S5.... I'm gonna go broke before I even get the car...

    Seriously thinking about a V1 though the thought of of Escort with F&R jammers is very appealing. I have the luxury of knowing the roads I travel frequently and as a habit for work I stay on cruise control and within 3mph of the limit on cruise control. But for longer rides out of town and use in the Vette the V1 may be the best bet so I can move it from car to car as needed.

    V1 or 9500IX argument can go either way, i prefer passport, its proven itself for me. BUT, LI are a MUST. they will pay for themselves. if they only do it once in the next 5 years, its worth it, but I would guess they will do it more than once. Noone want that sort of thing on the record, no matter what it may get pleaded down to

    no you dont, by definition, you have a deterrent, not a detector. And its also a false logic. many many people have been puled over for speeding, when not speeding. Some LEO abuse the powers Click here to enlarge

    Just like a radar detector is not 100% as many many people have been pulled over even with a detector. Some may abuse the power but that is true in any situation where someone has power.

    Glad I found this thread. Been debating on the 9500 or the V1 for years now. Just haven't had enough tickets to warrant either yet. However, a lot of Pcar guys run the K40. Any reasons not to?

    A buddy of mine with an M3 has a K40. Im not the biggest fan, it doesnt seem to perform well under review. My buddy got a ticket with his K40. Although, the local Porsche dealership is closely tied with K40 so....

    oh, you mean they are more interested in ensuring revenue than stopping crime? Sure they arrive to calls, but hey at least they have new equipment to secure crime scenes after the fact..

    Sticking to the OP -- I feel like if you only have a radar detector, the V1 is superior (the arrows make the difference). If you're going to run a Detector/Jammer setup, then the Passport 9500 sounds more effective

    Hopefully after the Fed Govt continues to run it's deficit (entitlements, govt-sponsored program, further failed govt "investments" in companies like Solyndra & Fisker) & weaken the American dollar (foreign purchasing of debt & increase in imports vs. domestic produced goods), I REALLY hope people take more of an interest in politics & how it impacts their lives. A friend of mine tweeted that he was out & overheard a janitor complaining that $40-something dollars was missing from his paycheck & he was confused because he voted for Obama. People failed to realize, if you're making above minimum wage in Obama's America, you're considered "rich" & your taxes will go up.

    You know what's really funny? Most people don't see this nor do they see the big picture of what is going on around them... Consistent govt control, false revenue generation, rights taken away and people are OK with it and choose to go along...

    People are stupid, they follow the personal biases without gaining any outside information. There's nothing more frustrating then debating with people & they respond with some ludicrous fact and back it by saying "Well I heard this on ABC/NBC/MSNBC/Fox News (because people on both sides are guilty)".

    Holy $#@! ADHD kicked in. Haha. I'm reading k40 ok cool wtf? Why am I reading about politics. Lets keep this on topic. Does anyone feel the 9500 is inferior because it doesn't have the arrows? I've always liked the v1 because its proven and the arrows are a major plus.

    This^ Lets keep my thread on topic please! Im with all of you with the election and politics. I kept listening for the gun shots, fingers crossed lol

    Anywho, the 9500ix has proven itself to be more than sensitive enough. Unfortunately theres a bunch of speed-cameras near my school, so im blasted with Ka every morning, and its already blocked it out. The problem is that the cops stake out near those signs, and they also use Ka.... Im just afraid the 9500ix will block out both signals, the bogey and the sign. We shall see....
