Does it inform you of mobile units in the area?

I have the Passport 9500ix. Bought it this last summer for a road trip on the zx-14. It saved my ass at least 3 times and was there to tell me several other times how if I would have been speeding, I could have slowed instead of being busted then too.

Escort definitely has good products. I would consider the iQ for sure. If you think about it.. $600 is not a bad price to get out of speeding tickets. Add to that the other features and it's a great deal!

The 9500ix is about $500.. but has saved me thousands already. I haul ass now with very little to worry about. I mostly use it in the car, but can set it up on the zx-14. I don't have a way to run it on the niner or the new zed.. but we'll see. I mostly stay around the speed limits on those machines.. quick bursts is all. The Passport 9500ix is definitely a useful gadget.

Just curious...... How are you mounting the 9500ix on the ZX-14?

Looks like Passport has a new mega suction cup mount out now.....

I use the "mega suction cup" in the car. For the zx-14 I use a TechMount product with a custom made stanchion to extend it up above the gauge cluster just behind the windscreen.

Love this stuff!
3M Dual Lock
I think I got it at Office Depot? It's not cheap but worth the extra $ as small pieces go a long way. The trick was to use enough to hold the Passport firm and steady but not too much making quick removal impossible or difficult. Releasing the lock is aided with a slight twist as you lift one side. You can see the two pieces (1" x .5" or so) I used here:
