Escort Passport 9500ix: a Better Passport 9500i?
<h3>Escort Passport 9500ix: a Better Passport 9500i?</h3>
Escort has just announced that they will be releasing the Escort Passport 9500ix, an improved and more fully capable version of their existing Escort Passport 9500i that was originally released about a year and half ago.

Incorporating a greater GPS-enabled feature-set from their remote installed radar detector, the Escort Passport 9500ci, the new windshield-mount Escort Passport 9500ix, promises to be one of the most sophisticated and feature-laden radar detectors ever built.

For what amounts to a mere $50 more than the price point of their existing Escort Passport 9500i, you get a much more powerful radar detector with the Escort Passport 9500ix, which comes preloaded with a significant amount of red light camera and fixed speed camera locations.

Laser Jammer Necessary?

Welcome to the forum.

I suppose consideration for the addition of a laser jammer to your defense arsenal, would depend upon several factors, including:
  • Where you drive and whether or not police laser (lidar) is employed as a speed measurement technology (versus radar or vascar or other means)
  • If so, the extent of the use of police laser (eg; how often do you encounter it)
  • The 'legality' of the use of a laser jammer in your area
  • The nature of the vehicle(s) you drive, color & make

Your answers would help me provide you a considered answer.

hi there. thx for the prompt response.
i have a silver grandcherokee. 90% of the time i drive within the city, dont even use any highway. im in TX. however, once in 2-3 weeks i drive to 3 hr away city, and on the way there some small towns where cops are like thirsty vampires.
so the probability (or 85% of the time) doe not mean mch. you can do it right 99 times, on100th time you go above the limit and they may get you : (

my defensive driving and all are used. i dont wanna get another ticket, as i feel stupid. i dont drive too fast but 80 is ok, max is 70 in TX highways. however, my last 2 speeding tickets were both at 100mph. and i'd think on an empty road that's a very convenient speed. but ...

acc to the list i have seen on the web TX is listed among the states that radar, laser is legal.
im also a little speeding in the city but lights keep me slow fortunately. if have a radar, and if cops are fooling around their radar ON, i's like to be aware of their existence. knowledge is power : )

my most recent tickets are b.c of trying to beat the redlight and getting caught in the traffic cameras after midnight, coming home from local bars. drunk driving is not a problem though, as i drink 2-3 minutes away from home and i'm under control.

acc to what i understand 9500ix on top of a bunch of stuff, has some laser awareness, however, you never have neough time to slowdown once laser is shot.. m25 seems to be popular. but when i see the youtube videos, most users are like in a spaceship cockpit, and like race car drivers. im not like that and it would not be very convenient for me to have that many lights, switches, sounds flying around..

also i was considering to get the photoblocker spray for the plates for those camera lights. 9500ix camera warning would not do much good, as i already know 95% of the lights around my apartment have camera, it's downtown...
what would you think of the spray?..

thanks again man.

Laser Jammer May be Appropriate Addition to Escort Passport 9500ix

Your large metallic silver SUV is a tough vehicle to cloak and is a very easy target for laser (and radar for that matter).

Obviously you've got it covered with your Passport 9500ix, which is a very fine radar detector and laser detector.

The Blinder Xtreme units have proven to me to be an extremely reliable and dependable protection. The latest J16 versions of the M25 family have only improved over the original M10s and M20s and are very reasonably priced, IMO.

If you wish to have direct integration into your existing Passport 9500ix, perhaps you would be well to consider the Laser Shifter ZR4 [which also adds a rear shifter (ie; laser jammer head]. This unit is also reasonably priced and if its reliability proves similar to its predecessor, the Shifter ZR3, you won't be disappointed, either.

I won't speak to the other imported (and potentially patent-infringing) laser diode types which often are a bit more costly for similar setups and have historically experienced a choppy reliability/distribution record. There are others who participate here who have a better first-hand experience with these units and would, therefore, be more qualified than I to directly address.

I would recommend that you stay away from plate sprays designed to 'increase' reflectivity with the hopes of overwhelming flash-based photo enforcement for several reasons.

1) They have been tested to be not much more than simple hair spray.
2) They do not prevent your plate from being successfully photographed.
3) They could potentially increase your likelihood of getting a police laser ticket and make it harder for a laser countermeasure (such as a laser jammer) to do their job effectively.

I would suggest that you consider adding to your arsenal the following (regardless of the way you choose to go):
  • Veil G4 (as a stealth laser countermeasure designed to reduce laser reflectivity from your vehicle's most reflective surfaces as well as provide total protection from emerging infrared photo enforcement and ALPR systems)
  • An effective plate cover (such as the Photo Blur)
Using all of these systems in combination will provide you the greatest protection.

It so happens that a couple of nice bundles are available from some of the primary online contributors to this forum, that may be particularly appealing.

You can find a bunch a unedited/unmodified runs at a variety of police lasers with these products in combination as well as infrared videos at the following youtube site: Veil Guy YouTube Channel

Hope this helps you.

Please let us know how this turned out for you.
