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.

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

I purchased and IX less than 3 weeks ago, and I have already turned it back in. When I read the reviews and watched some of the videos neither one gave me a good indication this would be a good radar detector or not. I have been an Escort user for years, and in comparison to my Redline, well there is no comparison. The IX has horrible range on KA, K, most times the IX alerted 12 seconds after the Redline, and it varied from 8 to 12 seconds over the few weeks that I had it. On a positive note I did like the auto learn feature on the IX, it was easy to program, and also had it coupled with escort live, as I do my Redline. Bottom line is most people want plenty of warning time to slow down, range, on and off axis, but the IX does not perform to these standards. Put GPS, arrows on a Redline, and there would be no use for other radar detectors as it would be complete.

Too much if your looking just for a radar

By Mr.Speeding Tickets

from Clifton, Nj

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

After receiving multiple speeding tickets, I decided to look into radar detectors and everything i researched was leading to the escort IX. After using it for a month I decided it was not worth what I paid for it. First of all in order to recieve the speed limit and data from other users you have to have the app. Great just what I want is something to waste more data on my phone. If you have no problem using the data then this would definitely be a beneficial detector for you. I went 3 weeks not using the app with the detector and it was alright. Every time it would go off it would start at 3 bars and the cop would be right next to me. It did twice over the course of 3 weeks give me a good warning and allowed me to slow down before I could even see where he was. After I saved multiple locations as false alarms they suddenly all became unsaved and started going off again. At that point I decided it was enough with this detector. I thought it would be nice to have the speed limit on the detector and warn you after you went a specific mph over. I just wasn't happy with how useless all of the features are when you don't pair your phone with it and have the app running.

Good for a paper weight

By Dakota kid

from Gettysburg, sd

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

Never detected anything over 100 yards away whether they were moving or still. Nailed down every cb in the immediate area if you need to find a semi. Speaker is not loud enough if it does go off unless you drive with absolutely no radio on.

Never Again

By GotRippedOff

from Ohio

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

Got a ticket and it never went off. The office even joked about it to me. Escort says without proof of having the detector on they won't pay. Now, how do you supposed you can prove that? What a rip off. I will never buy another one and will tell everyone to not buy these.

lack of old suction cups leaves mercedes drivers out to dry

By Jim

from Austin

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

many mercedes have only small squares in their windshields that allow toll tags and radars to pass through. they are so low on many mercedes that the new larger black suction mounts will not fit. The old ones would work. Have to use a solo to get it to fit. Too bad. Bring back the old mounts. The valentine radars do fit. Not sure about the bean bags dash mounts. I have been through many escort radars and agree they have become worse over time.

cheaply constructed garbage

By Max

from Charleston, SC

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

Owned this device for ~4 years, I also purchased the Escort Live cord and the extended warranty. The latch that secures it to the window mount wore out after the first two which prompted a ~$40 repair fee + shipping costs. The Escort Live cord stopped working around the same time, which prompted a ~$40 replacement before shipping. So, as of this point, I am invested in this detector to the tune of ~$600+.

Today, the device failed to power on. After calling the support line and running through basic troubleshooting, they stated that it needed to be repaired and the fee would be $99.

I purchased this device on the premise that I wanted to pay once for what appeared to be a top-quality radar detector that I would then keep for a long time. I was mistaken to support this company; these devices are cheaply built, and marked up significantly due to the branding. As of this point, it makes far more rational sense to get one of the many < $100 detection options on the market that you will not feel bad about throwing in the trash as I am about to do with this garbage.

Do Not Use the Auto Sensitivity Option

By KRM

from Kentucky

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

This is the seventh radar detector that I have purchased from Escort. I will start with the negative and end with the positive.

For the negative, on the second day using this device, I received a KA alert from a state trooper with only 30 yards to react. I was on the highway and 25 miles over the speed limit. I was fortunate that I did not receive a ticket as the state trooper was obviously on a more urgent call.

Once I knew I was not going to be stopped for speeding, I stopped my vehicle and changed the sensitivity setting from "auto" to "highway". So far, this appears to have resolved the issue. However, I have not encountered another signal to know for sure that this resolved the problem.

For the positive, the new magnetic mount is the best to date. The old suction cups never performed as expected. In addition, this radar detector is much lighter than previous models.

I continue to be cautious until I am certain that the sensitivity change is a permanent solution.

Only 1 to buy called Escort my 9500I was getting false laser

By SuperSwed

from NJ

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

Called Escort my 2 9500Ix were getting false laser alerts. I asked if there was a software update. They said no. Only solution is hit the mute or turn off the laser. It happen mostly on Highway with German Cars. My 2017 Pilot Elite Has laser cruse control and Blind Spot. You have to mount it low on the windshield or it blocks the view of the camera in the rear view mirror. Getting the mount is a little tricky.

One of the best out there

By SuperDave

from Louisville KY

Comments about New ESCORT IX:

This is the best detector I have owned and I have been using them for 25 years. Many people (and reviewers) don't understand the problems detectors face today with all of the in-vehicle and stationary falses out there that weren't there 20 years ago. By understanding and using the different modes and functions the unit has as described in the manual, you can use this detector to it's fullest potential. It's very difficult these days to pick out real police radar from the noise and this detector does a fabulous job. This is one of the best detectors out there that minimizes all of that and still provides exceptional usability and range. My last 3 detectors were Escort and they have never let me down.
