What is included with the iX?
The iX comes complete with a soft-sided travel case, NEW magnet "Sticky Cup" windshield mount feature, 12-volt SmartCord® and quick reference guide. If you would like a more permanent installation for your iX, check out the DirectWire SmartCord® or the more basic DirectWire kit for hardwired installations.
What is AutoLearn?
Autolearn uses the GPS feature to identify sources of false radar and memorizes location and frequency of each radar signal. Our AutoLearn software then compares signals received over time and eliminates audio alerts for non-police sources. The display will identify that a signal is present but no audio alert will be sounded. If a new source of radar or laser appears in the area you will receive a full audio and visual alert.
Will AutoLearn block out true police signals?
No. The sophisticated software will prevent automatically blocking out true police signals.
What is the Defender database?
Defender is a database of North American red light and fixed speed camera locations that can be updated weekly from our site. https://www.escortradar.com/store/software-subscription-accessories/
What is the USB port for?
The iX is web ready and the USB port can connect to a PC for software downloads and Defender updates.
What is Variable Speed Sensitivity?
We recognize if you are driving at slower rates of speed that you do not need full sensitivity. The iX is able to increase sensitivity as your traveling speed increases.
Can it be used overseas?
We do not monitor frequencies used overseas, but many customers travel abroad with their PASSPORT.
How do you Mark a location?
To mark a particular location, press the "MRK" button. The display will read: "Mark?" Press the "MRK" button again to assign a label to it. There are four (4) labels: Red Light, Speed Camera, Speed Trap and Other. To scroll through the labels, simply press the volume (+) or (-) buttons until you reach the desired label. Once you've selected the label, press the "MRK" button again to confirm.
How do you block a false alert?
To lockout a false alert, (X, K or Laser only) press the mute button three (3) times, (either on the detector or the SmartCord®) during the alert. Pressing the mute button the first time will silence the audio. Pressing it a second time will generate a prompt on the display that will read: "Lockout?" Press it a third time to confirm that you want to lock this signal out by location and frequency. A "Stored" message will be displayed.
What is Expert Mode?
Expert Mode will show you up to 8 radar signals at the same time and will show relative signal strength and associated Band of each signal.
Where are they illegal?
Radar detectors are completely legal to use in non-commercial vehicles in 49 states. Virginia and Washington D.C. are the only places in the United States that currently ban radar detectors. Radar detector use in commercial vehicles has been prohibited in the U.S. since 1995 and radar detectors are also illegal in most Canadian provinces. We do not track detector regulations in other countries.
What is the warranty period?
All our products ordered factory direct come with a full one-year factory warranty. We also offer an Extended Service Plan on select models that will provide two additional years of warranty for $29.95.
I have GPS in my car. Why do I need it in my detector?
The GPS feature is not used for navigation. The iX allows you to Mark locations of interest, Block false radar and laser alerts, tracks vehicle speed in real-time, and allows sensitivity based on the vehicle speed.
Why do I have to pay for updates?
Due to the increasing use of red light and fixed speed cameras in the US, the locations and operation status of these devices change all the time. This database is collected from a number of sources. There is a very small annual charge for customers that want to keep the Defender database current for camera threats. https://www.escortradar.com/store/software-subscription-accessories/
What is the Defender Database memory capability in the iX? Will it run out of space?
The iX has more than enough memory to hold all your locations as well as the camera locations used in the US.

Not much different from my redline except just slightly less range.

The new mag sticky windshield mount is outstanding.

My second review after week 2

By Stephen B.

from New York

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

This has to be the best radar detector that ESCORT has EVER manufactured !!!!!! I have learned a lot more about it. I am extremely impressed about the Escort live APTand how the auto learn works. I do NOT get them false alarms anymore, I have learned how to shut them down and not receive them anymore. The APT will ask you if it's real or not radar. I just answered no to banks, drug stores and others. Now I can drive by these places without it going off. There is one slight drawback I have to warn the public of. The ESCORT Live APT has caused my IPhone battery to lose power quickly. Make sure you close down the APT when not in use and keep it connected to a power cord on a long trip. It will drain your battery on the phone for sure. But I have learned to deal with it. Also you don't have to open the APT on your phone, you don't need it, just an extra feature, but I recommend using it. I wouldn't spend the extra money for the paid Escort live APT that they want an additional charge for. Now you have to consider I live in a small town of about 20,000 people and do not travel anymore. So it all depends on how much you travel and miles you put on your vehicle everyday. The bottom line is, it tells me when I am over the speed limit and keeps me alert, not the right to speed. Even thou it has settings to tell you when you are over the speed limit by 5 miles over it and more. For you speeders, you definitely need it. No question about it. Before I forget, the GPS system gives you the speed limit on roads you are driving on, not just the highway, a big plus. Unfortunately in the small town I live in, it does not in every street because there has been so many changes in the speed limit here since the USAF base closed in 1995. Plattsburgh AFB is history unfortunately :(((( I just have given away my location, oh well....

Excellent radar detector

By Leog68

from Derry, New Hampshire

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

Just bought on installment plan Escort IX after using a friends for a few days excellent detecting Ka radar, display can be hard to read in bright light and buttons can be hard to read for some users. Not a big fan of the magnet suction cup, still need time to get use to it. Escort IX well built radar detector, it responds quicker than Escort 9500IX and better at detecting Ka radar.

I have owned this detector for a week now.

By Stephen B.

from New York

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

I received it a week ago. Did I ever have problems learning how to use it, but luckily my wife helped me while we were driving. It took me 6 months to figure out my new IPhone, so after 3 days I was ready to send it back. Being 60 years old and learning new things is NOT easy. The APT was the hardest thing to learn, but got it done now. I am still learning all the features it has to offer. I live in NY and receive speed traps in VT just 20 miles away. Unfortunately the K Band goes off due to banks and drug stores, but I am learning how to delete them. I need to contact Escort to see if I can shut off that band. I have figured out how to delete them when they show up on the IPhone APT. By the way, my IPhone shuts down after 30 seconds and the APT will still run in the background. It's just a pain to delete false alarms while your driving, but maybe there is where Escort auto learn comes into play. I don't know yet. I don't drive the same routes everyday or even every 3 days or so. So far, I highly recommend this product. It blows away my old Escort Solo cordless S3 for sure. I will write another review shortly.

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

I can honestly say, after using my 9500ix for the past 5 years, buying the new IX has been a great upgrade, the response time is very fast, and i love the filtering system , the IX is working perfect for me and i do a lot of driving in city and highway. Have seen nothing but perfect results !

Excellent Detector---Exceeded my Expectations!

By Robert

from El Paso, TX

Pros

  • Very good long-distance Ka detection.

Cons

  • Bulky suction cup mount.

Best Uses

    Comments about New ESCORT IX:

    The Escort IX far outperformed the 7500, 8500 and 8500 X50 when it came to long-distance Ka detection, and will say it is on par with the Valentine V1. I have owned all of these detectors and only the V1 was superior, until now. The IX has other nice features the V1 doesn't have, like the ability to learn where the false K-band signals are, red-light cameras and the ability to network with other Escort users.

    Lettering on top buttons

    Very hard to see the buttons on top because of size and the color of them they should have had White lettering, we all don't have 20/20 vision.

    Another Winner

    By Bill S.

    from Gaffney, SC

    Comments about New ESCORT IX:

    I ordered this IX to replace my 9500 IX. I noticed right away the K bands were not alerting as much. This started me worrying if the IX was working. Then the Ka band went off coming to work, 3.25 miles later I passed the stationary trooper. Range fantastic, so I guess the filters for K band on doors is better. Who ever designed the mount my hats off, best mount in the business, no vibration, easy on and off. I did own the V1 and yes the mount was great but Escort out did themselves this time. Glad I bought the IX. At the present I own a Escort 360, IX and the 9500 IX. Thanks
