When taking a trip, having a cord for the cell, the GPS and the Escort 9500 was a lot of wire. The iQ solves the issue by combining the GPS and radar unit into one box. The GPS is no Garmin but you get the 9500 capability with a decent GPS solution. It will be interesting to see what updates Escort will offer with the Mini SD port.

I wan an early adopter of this model, seemed like it fit the bill for older cars I have without GPS and includes radar.
Just after warranty expired the screen developed annoying lines horizontally that is particularly visible at night when the background changes from paper white to black for visibility.
Another annoyance is the mapping software "nagware" I do not subscribe to the map updates and there are pop ups reminding you there is new map updates available. Call to customer service confirmed there is no way to turn off that pop up. It requires you manually dismissing it every time it comes up!
Other than that the detector and map software are sufficient.
Another issue I have run across is the automatic memory for non moving radar. Once it picks up 3 times a stationary radar, it filters out further alarms. the only way to clear this is wipe out all locations and start afresh. Problematic with our HOA radar mobile sometimes there sometimes not but it gets logged into memory after 3 passes (I drive in and out at least 2 times a day). Would like to be able to exclude certain geo locations from memorizing and filtering.
Its expensive given the bad screen already!

        Just got it a few days ago, but very happy so far.
        Looks like a regular nav box, so not too worried about it being stolen.

        I drive over 100,000 miles a year in all states. I purchased this unit two years ago. Biggest mistake I ever made. The only thing worse than the unit is the customer service (big joke). The unit will randomly pick out letters and numbers on the touch screen, it will freeze up, it picks routes that make no sense. Calls to customer service make you feel like they think you are an idiot. Unless you have money to throw away, don't buy. Whenever I have a friend that is thinking about buying this unit I let them use mine. They change their mind in a hurry.
