I like the idea of the live smart cord, but that's the main reason I haven't jumped. Mine is hard-wired too, and I have no reason to go back to having a cord. I think Escort needs a solution for those hardwired -- maybe something in-line with the hardwire cable.

They told me they're planning on one, but did the temp cable first to reach the majority of owners.

Cheers

I got mine from ABT Electronics for less than Escort list during one of their sales -- it definitely wasn't that cheap, but it was a good price. They are local for me, but have a substantial online presence, so you could always call and see what they can do for you. I was surprised when I bought it, because I didn't think it was discounted anywhere.

Got a escort 9500ix hardwired via ABT just last week. Couldn't be happier and it already paid for itself twice over. I love the add on super suction cup, very easy to take it down and put it back on.
