I have been looking to buy this unit for some time now. Can you give me the dimensions of the display? I would like to place it over the passenger air bag indicator above the rear view mirror.

Here is the breakdown of the most recent Escort Radar Detectors....Maybe this will help because I see how the waters can get murky with all the new products...

Escort Redline
The Redline is the ultimate in sensitivity, with a functional detection range of 13 miles (longest around)!!! With a twin antenna design, each antenna is tuned to different radar frequency bands to give you incredible range and performance. With extreme sensitivity also comes more false alarms (created by shopping mall door openers and other RF generating devices in commercial areas). The Redline does not have GPS, so it does not eliminate false alarms which can be a nuisance in the city. It is targeted for the highway warrior, who needs a super sensitive detector that spends 80% of their time running the highways (cannonball run style ;)) It does detect Radar and Laser....

The 9500IX is a perfect all around detector...Detects Laser and Radar and has a couple mile range. It's HUGE claim to fame (and it works) is the GPS filters and auto learning. The 9500ix eliminates false alarms by blocking them out with a GPS filter. If the detector sees the same signal (freq) at the same location 3 times, it blocks it out automatically and you will not see it again. You can also tell the detector (with the push of a manual button) that the signal is false and it will block it out immediately. The 9500IX also comes loaded with a nationwide database of Traffic Cameras and Speed Cameras. It warns you if you are approaching a speed/stoplight camera. The database can also be updated via the internet by connecting your detector to you PC. Really, really cool feature!!!

The Qi45 is a remote mount/concealed display detector. With this model you actually mount the radar receiver antenna up under the hood, in the grille, under the front fascia to give the antenna perfect unobstructed view of the road. You then mount the small display somewhere in your car/truck. Very discreet and excellent performance. You do not have to worry about theft as much with this system as nobody knows it is there. You can also add a laser shifter system later or at the time of purchase if you want. Most remote mount systems cost well over $1000 bucks and in the past have only been purchased by folks with deep pockets and exotic vehicles. They also required professional installation as there were many wires that needed to be run in and out of the car. The Qi45 only has one wire that needs to be run into the car (even if you add the Laser shifter pack later as the shifter plugs right into the radar antenna). You can install the Escort Qi45 yourself without paying the high cost of installation and usual times to install are less the 45 mins. The Qi45 does not have GPS or the Speed camera database (only downside).

Last but not least, the Escort CI....A remote mount system just like the Qi45. Cost is much higher, but it comes with the Laser Shifters AND does have the GPS Functionality (false alarm blocking, but not the speed camera database). The CI can be installed at home but is more complicated than the Qi45 as there are more wires to run. Basically, the CI is an remote mount 9500ix without the speed camera database. The Escort CI is considered the MAC Daddy of all radar detectors....You pay for it though....

Hope this helps you decide......

Thanks - great info on all models.

On the 9500IX, can you use a Mac to get the Internet updates or is it PC-only?

the remote mount for the 9500xi on the camaro visor, does it come with the extend power cable. How is that run or what power source is it connecting to?

That is on you.....We provide the mount, but getting power to the detector is up to you..

You can pull it from the fuse box or the rear view mirror.....But no, the mount does not solve the power situation :thumbsup:

Thanks,

Jim

I just installed this one with the 9500XI last week... Works great... Also check Post 27 this worked very well for me also. Better hurry for your order because he's leaving town until Feb and won't be making the mounts for a while.

And here's a couple of options for power.
