Many drivers will exceed the posted limit from time to time. And while there are certainly way too many reckless drivers on the road, serious car guys tend to take driving, well… seriously. When we drive we consider traffic, weather and visibility conditions and adjust our speed accordingly.
Faced with 2600 miles to cover in our Scion Road to SEMA FR-S across some very wide open country, we realized there will be times when the highway beckons. Being very fond of both our licenses and our wallets, we turned to Escort Radar to cover our backs (and fronts).
Personally I’ve been using Escort detectors for a long time: I bought my first one in 1982. And, I’ve been a huge fan ever since. For quality, performance and customer service, these guys are the best in business. So, we left it to the folks at Escort for a recommendation on the FR-S. They suggested their top-of-the-line 9500ci. The 9500ci is not your typical suction cup windshield mount unit. This full-featured unit is discreetly custom-installed and completely undetectable by most law enforcement radar detector detectors.
The 9500ci in our FR-S will give us front and rear all-band radar detection and laser shifters. Plus, it features Escort’s proprietary Traffic Sensor Rejection (TSR) software to eliminate false alerts. The 9500ci also comes pre-installed with Escort’s DEFENDER® Database - thousands of safety camera locations, including red light and speed-based cameras throughout North America. You can also download updates, back up your data, and stay on top of new threats directly from their website.
Escort recommends professional installation of the 9500ci, so we turned to the skilled technicians at Auto Action. Auto Action specializes in professional electronic installations for car dealers and they also installed our audio system so we were comfortable they would do it right.
With our journey set to begin in just a few days, we are looking forward to a trouble-free and now thanks to Escort, a ticket-free ride. Stay tuned to see how you can win an Escort radar detector of your own. Starting on October 20th, you can follow us at facebook.com/carguynation, twitter.com/carguynation or instagram: @carguynation
