EGGS-ZACKLY - GPS for storing falsies, and filters now for the Google traffic sensors. As for Lazer, its short range and has to be used while standing still.

Detectors will only show when you are hit. Best Lazer detection I have found is seeing traffic ahead of me put on their brake lights. The folks with $$$ use lazer jammers for protection on long 20mile barren desert roads. Since Laser is light, it does not fall under the FCC rules of no radio wave jamming.

IT will catch that, it stores both location and Frequency. The traffic radar will be on a slightly different frequency in the same K band. IN fact in Spectrum display mode you can see for example two different traffic radars and the Stores door opener radar as different "ticks" on the spectrum scope. I have done this, only two different door openers on each side of the road and the traffic radar coming by.

Automatic mode is best, has filters for TSRs and helps reduce the Cadillac and Buick rear and side radar signals. You only need HyWay if your on a lonely stretch of road with none around for miles. In Ohio rural roads the Patrol still use X-band. I have picked them up almost 5 miles away in HyWay mode in the middle of no-where.

At some point in the next 10 years so many other cars will be using radar the noise will be significant and most traffic radar will have to use KA as the K band will be full of cars detecting each other's bumpers for auto cruz

Noob question: so when we say 'it uses GPS to store locations', are we referring to speed cameras or traffic sensors that it will filter out?

Reason being where I live, cops are sneaky more often than not. Hiding behind a bridge, a hidden alley, parked in pitch dark or they're usually in unmarked vehicles with their lasers/speed guns turned on is a common practice. Is 9500i going to be the best solution for these scenarios, or if you could use lesser expensive models (under 200) too for this purpose?

I'm going to save my money and get a good radar detector down the line. Is there any other radar detectors that might be better than a passport?

Based on the consensus in this thread, I'll leave this link here. The 9500ix is currently their deal of the day. Maybe someone can save a few bucks. (I haven't compared it to any other prices)

yes it is, I paid $445 for mine 2 years ago. The discounts are likely because of the newer Max2 model, but I still prefer this one. Art

I use the "no X " setting. Works great and the police don't use X anywhere around me. Eliminates any X false signals bothering you.
