360-Degree Radar Range And Laser Detection: The Passport
9500ix delivers extreme long-range warning on all radar bands including X, K,
Superwide Ka, Ku and instant-on POP modes. Multiple front and rear laser sensors
provide 360 degree laser protection, including a wide field of view.
VG-2 Protection: This unit uses a SmartShield VG2 Immunity
to make it invisible to radar detector detectors.
TrueLock Signal Rejection: The Passport 9500ix utilizes TrueLock
Signal Rejection to eliminate false alerts due to location or certain frequencies.
The GPS-powered (SiFRstar III receiver) TrueLock system allows you to simply press
the mute button a couple of time and never hear a radar-based automatic door opener
or motion sensor alarm again. The 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 locations.
Sensitivity Settings: The Passport 9500ix features 3 radar
- Auto: In Auto mode the unit provides
real-time radar performance base on your vehicle's speed.
As your vehicle speed increases, the radar sensitivity (X
and K-band) is set to maximum range. As your vehicle speed
decreases, the radar sensitivity (Xand K-band only) is
minimized to further reduce unwanted false alarms. Full
sensitivity is maintained on all other bands.
- Highway: Highway mode provides maximum
sensitivity on all bands.
- City: City modes reduces X-band sensitivity
and full sensitivity is maintained on all other bands.
Location Marks: Location Marks store speed traps and other
locations in memory. The 9500ix's Mark Location feature allows you to quickly
store specific locations in memory. The next time you approach these marked
(saved) areas, the Passport 9500ix will provide an alert well in advanced to
remind you of the potential speed traps ahead.
AutoLearn: The AutoLearn feature analyzes (over time) the
source of radar signals by location and frequency. This allows the Passport 9500ix
to determine if a signal is a real threat or a false one. If it determines that the
signal is a not a threat, the Passport 9500ix automatically locks out this source
at that particular location.
Safety Camera Database: The Passport 9500ix comes pre-loaded
with thousands of safety camera locations, including red light and speed-based
cameras throughout North America. You can also download updates, back up your
data, and stay on top of new threats directly from Escort's website.
Notes: Location Database Updates and
Detector Software Updates for the Passport 9500ix require
a Windows based computer. (Operating on Windows XP or Vista
Variable-Speed Radar: The Passport 9500ix AutoSensitivity
mode varies radar sensitivity base on your vehicle's speed resulting in better
High-Resolution Display: The radar detector features an
ultra-bright red alphanumeric matrix-display with 280 LEDs and 5 brightness
levels (Minimum, Medium, Maximum, Auto and Full Dark) to choose from.
3 High-Resolution Meter Modes: The Passport 9500ix provides
3 types of meter displays to choose from:
- Signal Strength Meter: Standard bar-graph
meter that provides information on a single radar signal. If
there are multiple signals present, the unit's internal computer
will determine which one is the most important threat to display.
- ExpertMeter: The ExpertMeter is a miniature
spectrum analyzer simultaneously tracks up to 8 radar signals. It
provides detailed information on up to 2 Ka-band, 2 K-band, and 4
- SpecDisplay: In this mode, the unit will
display the actual numeric frequency of the radar signal being
- SpeedAlert: The SpeedAlert feature provides
vehicle speed during each alert. The radar or laser band, signal
strength and your speed are displayed during an alert to help you
in your decision process.
Dark Mode: In the Dark mode, the radar detector will dim the
display and not show visual alerts.
Safety Warnings: The 9500ix features SWS (Safety Warning System)
Technology which displays safety messages on the unit's matrix-display when there is
a Safety Warning System (SWS) used in your area. SWS offers over 60 specific safety
messages warning you of road hazards in your area.
Crystal-Clear Voice Alerts: The Passport 9500ix provides you
with a real voice alert option. In addition to the unit's Geiger-counter-like sound
that indicates the signal strength and unique audible tones to identify each alert
by band, the unit also feature a voice alert option for crystal clear communication
of alerts and user controls.
AutoVolume: The AutoVolume feature automatically adjusts the
alert volume based on ambient noise in the vehicle. The 9500ix uses an integrated
miniature microphone to monitor ambient noise within the vehicle and will increase
the volume level automatically to ensure you can hear the unit's alerts.
Auto Mute: After the initial audible alert, the volume is
automatically reduced, so you need not manually mute the sound. This feature can
Mute Button: Once an alarm sounds, it can be silenced using
the mute button.
Earphone jack: There is a standard 3.5mm earphone jack on the
left side of the unit.
USB Data Port: The unit features a USB data on the right side
of the unit which allows you to backup your TrueLock data and other software related
SmartCord Cigarette Lighter Adapter: The supplied cigarette
lighter plug has an alert LED that lights even when the unit is in the Dark mode
and a mute button in case the unit is not within easy reach.
AutoPower: This feature automatically turns the Passport off
if the vehicle has not moved for 4 hours.
Easy Mounting Bracket: The radar detector comes supplied with
an EasyMount windshield bracket that is designed for unobtrusive and hassle-free
mounting. The bracket clips onto the top of the 9500ix and suction-cup mounts to
your windshield. The 9500ix features a release button that will allow you to remove
the 9500ix from the bracket while still leaving the suction-cup window mount bracket
