IntelliMute is a unique new feature that allows you to avoid alerts you dont need to hear because you are stopped or moving slowly. By sensing the revs (RPMs) of your engine, IntelliMute knows when you are at low speed and automatically mutes alerts (except for strobe signals from emergency vehicles). Before IntelliMute will work, you must set an activation point for your engines revs (see page 15). Whenever the revs are below that point, IntelliMute will begin muting. The activation point will be stored in memory and recalled each time the power is turned on. An i will appear in the display when IntelliMute is on. The factory setting is IntelliMute off. NOTE IntelliMute may not work with some vehicles because it cannot sense the engines revs. In such cases, you can reduce unwanted audio alerts by using Auto Mute and City mode when appropriate.
To Turn IntelliMute On Or Off Using Program Mode
What To Remember While Using IntelliMute IntelliMute works with all City and Auto Mute modes. Whenever engine revs are below the activation point, an arrow pointing down will appear in the display. Above the activation point, an arrow pointing up will appear.
Below Activation Point Above Activation Point
If, for any reason, the unit stops sensing your engines revs, IntelliMute will indicate an error and automatically turn off. The rev point you set will be stored in the units memory when power is turned off and recalled each time the power is turned on. NOTE The rev point must be reset if you use your detector in a different vehicle. NOTE When initially choosing your IntelliMute activation point, a setting of approximately 300 to 600 RPMs above idle is recommended. You can reset the activation point at any time to fit your individual preferences and driving style. Setting The IntelliMute Activation Point Your detector must be installed in your vehicle. CAUTION Do not attempt to set the rev point while driving. Your vehicle should be parked and idling. IntelliMute must be turned on before setting the activation point.
In Program mode, go to IntelliMute.

The compass will remain accurately calibrated as long as your detector is mounted in the same place in your vehicle. If you change the location where the unit is mounted or move it to another vehicle, you must recalibrate the compass. The compass temporarily may not provide accurate readings if you are inside a building or enclosure, or are close to a large metal tractor/trailer, truck, or train. Once you are away from such a location, the compass will work correctly again. NOTE When the instructions direct you to drive in two (2) circles, a large parking lot is the most convenient place to do so. It does not matter what direction your vehicle is pointing when you start the circles, which direction you go to make the circles, and it does not have to be exactly two (2) circles. You do NOT have to make perfect circles. You can drive in any pattern, as long as you make two (2) complete turns. Four (4) three-point turns, two (2) small squares, or any two (2) complete loops will work as well as two (2) circles. It does not matter what size the circles are, if your speed is constant, or how fast you make the circles [but less than two (2) minutes]. Please be careful when making the circles and watch for other traffic.

An indication of the type of signal detected will appear in the DigiView Data Display. During X, K and Ka alerts, you will also see from one (1) to five (5) vertical bars, indicating the strength of the signal detected.
Signal Strength Chart
Signal Strength = 1 (Weakest Signal) Signal Strength = 2 Signal Strength = 3
Signal Strength = 4
Three (3) band frequencies have been approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for use by speed monitoring radar equipment: X band K band Ka band 10.525 GHz 24.150 GHz 33.400 36.00 GHz
Your detector is designed to detect single pulse mode radars. These radars are designed to have a low probability of detection. You should note that these radar guns have a much shorter range while in this mode.
Your detector detects signals in all three (3) radar bands.
VG-2 And Spectre 1
VG-2 and Spectre 1 are detector detectors that work by detecting low-level signals emitted by most radar detectors. Your detector does not emit signals that can be detected by VG-2 or Spectre 1, but does detect VG-2 and Spectre 1 signals and will alert you when a device is in use near your vehicle, if you so choose.
Responding To Alerts
Tone repeats slowly at first, then speeds up rapidly. Tone sounds one (1) time only. Tone instantly begins repeating rapidly. Pop mode tone. Tone repeats slowly as you approach a hill or bridge, then speeds up sharply as you reach it. Tone repeats slowly for a short period. Any type of laser alert. Any Safety Alert or Strobe Alert.
Probably police radar. Probably a false alarm, but possibly pulsed radar, Spectre 1 or VG-2 nearby. Radar, Spectre 1 or VG-2 nearby has been activated suddenly. Pop mode gun very close. Probably police radar beyond the hill or bridge. Probably a false alarm. Laser alerts are never false alarms. You are nearing an emergency vehicle, railroad crossing, or road hazard (construction, accident, etc.).
FULL ALERT Exercise caution
Safety Alert Traffic Warning System
FCC-approved Safety Alert transmitters emit microwave radar signals that indicate the presence of a safety-related concern. Depending on the frequency of the signal emitted, it can indicate a speeding emergency vehicle or train, or a stationary road hazard. Because these microwave signals are within the K band frequency, most conventional radar detectors will detect Safety Alert signals as standard K band radar. Your detector, however, is designed to differentiate between standard K band and Safety Alert signals, and give separate alerts for each. Safety Alert technology is relatively new. Safety Alert transmitters can be found in limited numbers in all 50 states, but the number is growing. Depending on your location, you may not receive these alerts regularly and may often encounter emergency vehicles, trains and road hazards without being alerted. As the number of transmitters increases, these alerts will become more common. When you receive such an alert, please watch for emergency vehicles ahead of you, on cross streets and behind you. If you see an emergency vehicle approaching, please pull over to the right side of the road and allow it to pass.

Important Compass Information For The XRS 9700
Calibrating Your Compass
The compass in your radar detector must be calibrated before you use it to give accurate directions. In order to determine the direction, the compass detects the weak magnetic field of the Earth, but all vehicles also produce many different magnetic fields that will confuse the compass. These magnetic fields are produced by audio speakers and other electronics within your vehicle. Calibration allows the compass electronics to measure and store information about the magnetic fields from your vehicle so that it can then ignore them!
Select/Dim Button Program/Mute Button
To Calibrate The Compass
Before calibrating compass, select the location where the detector will be mounted.
Enter the EasySet Programming Menu by pressing and holding the Program/Mute button Press and release the Select/Dim button until you see Set Compass displayed Press and release the Set/City button Drive your vehicle in two (2) complete circles* Press the Set/City button again

* Drive your vehicle in two (2) complete circles. A large parking lot is the most convenient place to do this. Please be careful when making the circles and watch for other traffic. It does not matter what direction your vehicle is pointing when you start the circles, which direction you go to make the circles, and it does not have to be exactly two (2) circles. You do NOT have to make perfect circles. You can drive in any pattern, as long as you make two (2) complete turns. Four (4) three-point turns, two (2) small squares, or any two (2) complete loops will work as well as two (2) circles. It does not matter what size the circles are, if your speed is constant, or how fast you make the circles [but less than two (2) minutes].
Will I need to calibrate the compass every time I use my radar detector?
No. The compass electronics holds the information about the magnetic fields made by your vehicle. However, for best results, you should mount the detector in exactly the same location every time you use it. When you remove the detector from your windshield, it is best to leave the mounting bracket on your windshield so that when you replace the detector it is mounted, again, in exactly the same place. If you decide to relocate your detector to a different place (either on the windshield or on the dash), it is best to calibrate the compass again.
My compass sometimes seems to give a wrong direction what is wrong?
If your compass is unable to detect the magnetic field of the Earth (used to determine the direction), it cannot give the correct reading. This may happen if you are under a bridge, inside a parking garage, or inside any enclosure or building that is constructed with metal framework. Other vehicles with a lot of metal may also confuse your compass so that it cannot give accurate readings. This may happen if you are next to a large tractor trailer, truck or train. Your compass will work again correctly as soon as you get away from these locations. There is no need to calibrate your compass again after this.

Cobra's high performance radar/laser detectors are a great way to keep in touch with everything that's happening on the highway. Thanks to built-in digital processing, the XRS-9700 offers ultra-high sensitivity to the use of nine radar and laser signals (including POP mode radar), and two safety systems. Intellimute shuts down detection when it senses lower engine RPMs, virtually eliminating unnecessary alerts. An 8-point compass provides a continual update on your travel direction.
