I figured I would create a thread. I've been doing a lot of reading on the Escort Radar detector forum. Got me curious, any other NBR peeps use radar detectors? Currently I have an Escort Passport 9500i. It's mounted just under the rear view mirror using Escorts Blend Mount. Its attached to the mirror stem with a short pigtail power cord that's plugged into the mirror power plug. Its a nice clean setup. My main use for the radar detector is long road trips. Obviously living in Northern VA, its illegal to use a radar detector. Through I doubt there are many radar detector detectors in use in VA. Also a fine for the detector is less then that of a speeding fine, and no points are awarded, and the RD isn't confiscated. Lately I've been thinking of custom mounting a smartcord in the dash, and thinking of various ways to mount the detector to see if there are better ways of keeping it out of sight. Another thing I've been thinking about is having Escort upgrade my 9500i to a 9500ix for $129. Basically they will upgrade the memory, add in the 9500ix features such as autolearn, load the Defender database into the RD, and put it in a new case. Just trying to research if the price is better than selling the 9500i and buying the 9500ix. Anyway just curious if anyone else uses a RD. Right now I'm on a road trip and the wife is driving so I'm bored. Sent from my Samsung Captivate/ICS CM9 via Tapatalk.
