The radar experts at Escort had something special with their 9500ix detector, which helped usher in the use of GPS technology to combat false alerts. Built upon that legendary device's legacy, Escort's iX radar detector features trademark long-range protection and GPS assistance, plus built-in Bluetooth® compatibiilty for smartphone integration. It also adds advanced technology to further suppress false alerts from new sources on the road, and it learns over time to stop other false alerts too. You can count on peace of mind as you drive with the Escort iX leading the way.
See everything you need
The Escort iX's multi-color OLED display gives you a quick, easy-to-follow view of pertinent information about incoming threats. You can choose the backlight color to complement your vehicle's interior lighting, and the recognizable icons and graphics really stand out on the detector's screen. You'll also get voice alerts in English or Spanish so you can make timely decisions while keeping your eyes on the road.
The iX's AutoLearn feature combines GPS location information with the unique frequency footprint of signals it picks up, so it can recognize where you're likely to get a false alert along your drive. You'll hear fewer false alerts, even if you don't mark those locations as false alerts yourself. After as few as three hits on the same location of a false alert, you won't be bothered again.
In-Vehicle Technology (IVT) filtering
Factory collision avoidance systems help make cars even more safe by keeping drivers aware of potential accidents, but they wreak havoc on radar detectors because they employ similar frequencies as conventional radar guns. The Escort iX's updatable IVT system recognizes collision avoidance and adaptive cruise control signals and separates them from the real threats, for fewer annoying false alerts.
Escort's ramped up the iX's ability to sniff out signals far ahead of your car, so you're sure to get alerts with plenty of advance warning. Whether you're worried about X-band, K-band, Superwide Ka-band, or POP radar guns, Escort has you covered. That goes for laser enforcement as well, including off-axis signals that would get by lesser detectors. Escort's digital signal processor turns those signal detections into actual alerts lightning fast.
Included camera locations
The iX comes with a preloaded database of safety, red-light, and radar camera locations across North America, allowing the detector to warn you when you get near. You can download updates, back up your data, and maintain the database through Escort's website. You'll need a subscription and a Windows®-based computer to update the iX's database update subscriptions are available through Escort's website.
Store critical locations
Just tap a button on the keyboard to store locations along the road where the speed limit drops quickly, or where you might encounter heavy enforcement. The iX will warn you when you approach them in the future. Or press the mute button at the location of a known false signal the detector will remember the signal, muting the alert the next time you pass by. You'll hear an alert if another type of signal comes from the same location.
The Escort Live app broadens your horizons
The Escort Live app is a simple way to get your iPhone® or Android smartphone involved in keeping you informed. The app combines your GPS location information with real-time reports from other Escort Live users to keep you abreast of potential threats in your vicinity. You can also use the app to report your own sightings of enforcement or other potential travel hazards, which will then be instantly available to other Escort Live users. The app also alerts you to major changes in the posted speed limit, so you can stay on top of the situation.
With the iX's built-in Bluetooth connectivity, you can simply pair the detector with your phone for instant wireless communication between the detector and the app no additional hardware or cords needed. The Escort Live app is free to download, but a subscription fee is required to use many aspects of the Escort Live service Escort includes a 1-year trial of the Escort Live Premium service with purchase of the iX detector.
Drive at your comfort level
The iX's programmable features let you set it up to detect and alert you how you want. You can choose the bands to monitor, which meter you want to see, and more. Variable speed sensitivity allows the detector to run at maximum sensitivity at highway speeds, then to move automatically to city mode when you slow down, eliminating false alarms caused by outside interference. It can even give you an alert when you're going over a pre-determined speed limit. You'll have three sensitivity levels to choose from, and five different brightness settings, including fully dark.
A handsomely outfitted detector
Your iX comes fully complemented with a travel case, 12-volt SmartCord, and Escort's new EZ Mag Mount. The mount securely fastens to your windshield and provides quick, one-touch attachment for your detector, with minimal bouncing as you drive. The SmartCord lets you see alerts when the detector's in fully dark mode, or mute the detector without touching it. And when it's time to update the database of cameras and enforcement areas, the iX's mini-USB input makes it easy for data transfer from your computer.
