    That's correct. That's why I didn't recommend the 9500ix initially as a solution to the car sending false alarms.

    I was referencing the 9500ix with respect to locking out bands. I don't lock out anything. For the first few months my 9500ix was "chatty" until it gradually learned where all the false signals were.

    Use the 9500 lock ouit feature until your next to a cop running his radar. Not a good senarios as there are videos on YouTube of it.

    You could try turning on TSR but it'll make the slow ix even slower.

    My Valentine One picked up K-band from the rear of an XTS4 on the highway. But was quiet in front of him.

    .
    The 9500ix will only lock out the EXACT frequency if encountered three CONSECUTIVE times in the EXACT same location (GPS coordinates). If you encounter it twice in a row, and then then next time the signal is gone, the counter starts over again. .

    So, to use your example you would need to be next to that cop running that exact radar gun, in the same location three times in a row for that to be a concern.

    Highly unlikely, and it will only lockout X and K bands. Ka bands are never locked out.

    Despite what the V1 users have been claiming, I have been using my 9500ix for a year and a half in an area that is always crawling with cops running radar, and I am extremely pleased, and I don't have to apologize to passengers for a chatty radar detector.
