Correct. There will be people against this, but I do not see what it really does over all the others. A faster processor? The 360 and the new MAX were said to have faster processors. A new display? They all had new displays.

The 360 was a lot of disappointment for many of us; others loved it.

I just see it as a new toy, fun for a while, that new detector smell as you open the box, then the threads after threads after threads. Some complaining, some blaming Escort for something, and those who love it, then on to something new again. The circle of life continues.

IMHO.

I am NOT an Escort hater; as I said I have 4 of their products that I use everyday. Enjoy!

I don't think you'll see the same type of issues because this is not a fully digital detector like the Max series. I also expect it to work better and probably have a better BSM filter, because again it's not fully digital.

It's not that a digital detector is less capable, but it's more complicated. Taking snapshots of the RF world around you and making fast approximations via FFT algorithms is no easy task. If the new iX proves to be realky good like what I've seen in the early YouTube videos by a user, I'd say there's no room for the Max 2. The iX is packaged better and might filter better as well. I say leave the digital realm for the 360.

When i said faster processor this would be in comparrison to the 9500 ix that this model replaces. When they do update say the Redline it too will get a better faster processor. That is a big deal since both Redline and 9500 ix are getting old.

Since the IX has this new ivt filter that actually works and is user upgradeable that is a big deal since false K alerts are the number one complaint today. Next up is false KA alerts. Once again if these issues are ironed out in the Max line the IX will hot the ground running.
