Default To buy or not to buy a Passport iQ

I recently (this week) purchased a 9500ix but now I am wondering if I should return it and buy a Passport iQ. I already have a Garmin that I like but the wifey has been wanting one and I could just give it to her. I really like the stealthyness of the iQ (to the unknown it will appear to just be a GPS unit) and the fact that will only need 1 unit instead of 2 on my dash. Also I travel some for work and would only have to fly with 1 unit to use in my rental car. I understand that there are no traffic updates available in the current iQ and that doesn't concern me too much but I guess it is a nice feature to have when I travel. I also know that there is no built in bluetooth but I already have a headset and do not use the bluetooth in my Garmin. Are there other things that I should consider? From what I have read the radar/laser detection in the iQ should be the same as the 9500ix. Thanks for any and all intelligent replies.

Also does anyone think that if I buy the current model and a new one is released that Escort will offer an upgrade for a reasonable fee?
