INTRO I met up with @gbriggs82 here in Plano today to do some testing of his new iX radar detector from Escort. There’s been a pretty good buzz around the forum about it since it was introduced a couple of weeks ago. I was pretty excited about getting a chance to test it against the Radenso...
The IX doesn't have updateable filtering if I recall and it's an older unit. So falsing to kband will be an on this unit. If you are getting a good deal it's an ok unit, mid tier range, but if you need k band on, there are other options with similar range and better filtering for a similar or lower price point.
The international newer version of the ix and the older 9500ix did pretty well in the tests we ran up in Auckland. However we did not have US models to compare against. For NZ the international ix is a very capable detector.
