Sometimes people find themselves in situations they wish they could’ve avoided. Some of these situations are such that happen to people who, on the whole, are at their very best behavior, but still get sucked into the whirlpool of negativities.

Enough on karma; let’s get to radar and laser detectors. The Escort Passport 9500ix has literally got so many features packed into it; they’ll make you forget what the actual reason was for you to buy this product. Features such as the False Alarm eliminator using GPS filters, Automatic learning with AI protection, location marking and variable speed, sensitivity make this a radar detector which serve a lot more purposes than just occupying some space above your dashboard.

Features

Anti-False Alert

If you’ve owned and used a radar detector for some time now and have had problems with false alerts then this feature will come to you as a major sigh of relief. False alerts can be a major source of annoyance for many. Unfortunately, alerts are alerts; whether false or an actual detection. A radar detector is designed to catch up on any time of signals. But here’s something more.

The Escort Passport 9500ix doesn’t just alert you of any signals it picks up, but also records different detections. Take the example of the alerts you get when crossing the mall. When you pass it by your device starts beeping. Rather than having to mute it every time you can simply ‘teach’ it to ignore the current detection from now on. Do this by pressing the mute button thrice. No more will you hear a beep when the device picks up on that particular signal.

AutoLearn: Artificial Intelligence Protection

The Escort Passport 9500ix is programmed to ‘learn’ and differentiate between actual alerts and false ones. This system is similar to the way a car’s ECU picks up on driving patterns and accordingly adjusts for engine RPM and other functions. Requiring only a triple press from the driver as feedback about a location; the Escort Passport 9500ix will categorize that location’s signals as a false alert and not bother you again.

However the device only automatically mutes out false alerts if they retain their coordinates and frequencies. For example, if a signal in an area is different from the one stored in memory it will automatically beep rather than muting this new signal as well.

Pros

Recommendations

Although the features are impressive, the price is the factor which most people consider when judging this device with other ones. If you prefer a comfortable drive and have no patience for false alarms then this is the device for you, within a short duration it will learn of all the signal points in your locale and know when exactly to alert you.
