Currently, the consumer has a problem with Escort....specifically with the Escort iX and the misleading/false advertising displayed on the box as an enticement to purchase, along with some of their company reps leading consumers on with 'speak' of an update, yet others flat denying that any update will ever occur for whatever excuse. Understanding capabilities and limitations of the technology inherent in a product (such as in the iX), yet advertising and making claims to the contrary (the iX is update-able) in an effort to 'boast' of the product as an enticement to purchase - all from an engineering team associated with a company that has been in business as long as Escort, is illegal. This situation offers simple recourse for the consumer in the form of a class action lawsuit. Having used Escort products for 32 years, and now the iX for several months, after reading the complaints regarding the limitations of the iX's IVT/BSM system, and the discouragement from those who have purchased the iX with no recourse beyond an $80+ enticement to purchase another more expensive detector (this is similar to 'bait and switch' tactics which, too, are illegal), along with my own disappointment with the iX's IVT system , well, begs the question....Escort do you PRIVATELY want to lose time and man-hours to resolve the IVT/BSM shortcomings of the iX and satisfy the many thousands who have purchased because of this poorly explained feature....??? Or do you PUBLICALLY wish to endure a class action suit that would force you to do the same for buyers, while also reimbursing them for penalties due to questionable/illegal business practices, and suffering the public humiliation and future loss of earnings and income that would result from such a lawsuit...? Escort - the ball is now in your court.

Welcome to the RD Forum!

Using any other available counter measures?

I am the perfect example that old dogs CAN learn new tricks! This Forum is packed with tons of useful information from best detector for where you live and drive mostly (so far there is NOT a single detector that is best for everyone/everywhere), proper mounting possibilities, additional counter measures, fast but intelligent driving habits, and of course @Vortex videos!

I hope you've posted this on Escorts forum, as they are very unlikely to see it here.

Welcome to the forum Eisenheim. From reading other posts you are not alone in feeling sleighted by ER. Your first post here will get many views.
Stay safe and be alert.

I agree to post on the Escort forum; but I be very surprised of Escort didn’t have a couple of reader user accounts on RDF and check here often.

Escort is not what it once was. There are many other high quality detectors out though
