I bought a 8500 X50 Blue a while back for my wife. It's great. I bought the 9500ix for myself recently, some pretty big differences. Some nice extra features such as speed limit and the gps stuff is awesome. The fact that if I pass a store or a radar sign on the side of the road 3 times, it won't chime anymore when I pass it after that. The redlight camera thing i could do without, but it can always be disabled.

Distance on the 8500 is not bad either, but the 9500 is even better if you can believe it. This thing picks up radar really far, and through objects like buildings and stuff.

I don't really get with the speed indicator is for on the 9500? I mean isn't that what the speedo is for?

Good to know the 8500 is a good unit. I've only ever had cheapies and they've worked pretty well so I'm sure I'll really like this one.

I've decided on the Passport 9500ix but would like to see how they are being hardwired into the Challenger SRT8s. Thanks.

Yep, all right here...just installed on my SRT8 the other day...

I've got an old Passport 8500 that I bought back in 2002, still works and has the phone cord plug, so I could mount it up with the inviscord and blendmount. You guys think she's still good enough to mount up or should I shell out the bucks for the latest and greatest 9500ix?

No experience with the 8500, but my 9500ix has saved me twice for sure already (paid for itself in 6 months) and has much better range than I remember my last detector having, which would have been purchased around the '00 period. Also, the gps feature (for remembering/learning false positives) on the 9500ix is pretty neat.

Worth noting though re: "invisicord", the powered mirror molex connector for '11 has two additional pins when compared to previous years (?). With these additional pins stuffed into the same size connector, it leaves less room for the "invisicord" pin(s) to slip in there - so, if you have hair, might as well go ahead and shave it, cause you'll pull it out trying to slip that fu*%ing pin in there. It's not impossible, but it's a doozie.

OhSnap...
Theyre legal in Cali. The jammers/shifters arent though. I have had an 8500 for 6 years nad has saved me sooo many times it really isnt funny. If the 9500 Range is really better, it'll be worth it. Taging and Marking your local area's speed traps is a no brainer. Im stuck between the 9500ci and the xi. Huge difference in cost .... but i feel naked without one. Good luck...

I had 8500 but now the Redline...range is amazing on this one!
Anyone have problems with Cops if mounted on mirror? In NY if they pull you over for something and feel cranky for the day, they start looking at things like license plate frames, things mounted on windshield and hanging from the mirror. Gotta believe if I hung the Redline from the mirror and got pulled over for something else, they would likely ticket me for the Redline.........NY it's illegal to have anything hanging from your mirror; anything mounted to your windshield (both considered to obstruct view); and illegal to have licencse plate frames or even clear covers that obscure any part of the license plate. Covers are totally illegal.

Well I just bought the blendmount and the mirror wire tap for my 8500 so I'll see how it turns out.
