    Passport 9500i

    Price: $449.95

     

    Nothing Else Like It

    The PASSPORT 9500i sets a new standard for radar and laser protection. It provides a perfect balance of long-range performance, intelligent processing of alerts and user information, and the elimination of the number one complaint - false alarms. No other detector offers this level of intelligence or protection.

       An Inside Look at the PASSPORT 9500i - A Speed and Location Intelligent Detector

    Passport 9500i Innovative Features and User Controls



    • TrueLock™ Signal Rejection permanently eliminates false alerts by location and frequency.

    SiRFstar III GPS Module

    The PASSPORT 9500i puts an end to false alarms. Its new GPS-powered TrueLock™ feature allows you to simply press the mute button a couple of times and never hear a radar-based automatic door opener or motion sensor again. Our patented design captures the location coordinates and the exact frequency of the signal and stores them in memory. Once stored, TrueLock™ will reject these signals, but is intelligent enough to warn you of a new or different signal in that same location. That's right, no more false alarms!

    • Variable Speed Sensitivity provides real-time radar protection based on vehicle speed.

    Matrix-Auto The PASSPORT 9500i can automatically vary its sensitivity based on the speed of your vehicle. At interstate speeds, all radar bands are operating at full sensitivity, providing the best possible performance. At really slow speeds, like parking lots and stop lights, the sensitivity is turned down to almost zero. No more irritating alerts when you are going below the posted speed. The result is real-time on-demand radar protection.




    • SpeedAlert™ provides vehicle speed during each alert.

    Matrix-Auto The PASSPORT 9500i provides all the information you need to make an intelligent decision during each and every alert. The radar or laser band, signal strength, and now your vehicle speed are displayed during an alert to help you make the best possible decision.




    • Mark Location stores speed traps and other locations in memory.

    Speed traps and camera locations are everywhere. It's a stretch of highway where they always sit, or it's a back road that quickly changes from 45 mph to 25 mph within a few hundred feet. You don't always remember, but now your PASSPORT 9500i will. The PASSPORT 9500i's "Mark Location" feature allows you to quickly store a specific location in memory. Simply tap the "Mark" button a couple of times and the 9500i will store this location in memory. The next time you approach this area, the PASSPORT 9500i will provide an alert well in advanced to remind you of the potential danger. This specific location reminder could keep you from being ambushed by instant-on radar or laser the next time you approach.

    • AutoVolume automatically adjusts the alert volume based on ambient noise.

    The PASSPORT 9500i will adjust the alert volume level based on the ambient noise in the vehicle. Using a miniature microphone, the 9500i monitors ambient noise and will increase the volume level automatically to ensure you take notice even with loud music, passenger conversations or excessive wind noise. Now each alert will be heard so you can react if needed.




    • Crystal-Clear Voice Alerts the PASSPORT 9500i provides users with a real voice alert option.

    The PASSPORT 9500i uses a Geiger-counter-like sound to indicate the signal strength and unique audible tones to identify each alert by band. Or, choose the PASSPORT 9500i's new Voice Alert option for crystal clear communication of alerts and user controls.

    I've always thought they needed some sort of interface like this, allowing you to mark spots. Now, here's what I want.

     

    I want to drive by a place, hit a button that says there's a cop there, and then when someone else gets close they get a warning that a cop was there recently...

    I'd like to read the post about the radar detector, but with all the WASTED space down the left side of the page, I can't see even half of Jeff's post.

    Wow!  I'm not exactly ready to sell my Valentine, but this Passport is very nice.  I'm not ready to sacrifice my arrows.  They didn't comment on the mini-usb jack but I suppose it will accept firmware updates, and possibly hacked firmware updates.  The next detector I buy should detect the fibers unique to police uniform and change red lights to green.

    On the Passport website it says that in the near future you can go online and share marked locations. 

    Yeah I got an email from Escort on the new 9500, and I'm trying to figure out which one I like better, the GPS or the directional indicators of the Valentine One.  And I wonder if sensitivity has improved over the 8500.

    I always have seen people flash their headlights on-off, instead of the brights.  Which one is it?  I flash the lights only when there aren't a lot of cars in front of me, or if I'm in the left lane.

    Wow, that thing is awesome.  I wonder how many "false" locations and speedtraps that you can mark.  But $450!!!  I'm going to have to wait awhile till that comes down a little, my 8500 still works great.
