FINALLY!, i found a radar detector forum. well i hope my problem will be solved.
well i'm a newbie to radar detectors and i've been reading lately about each band and now i'm familiar with what's what.
Anywayz, after alot review reading and comparisons i finally decided to buy the Bel RX65 and i did. I've had it now for over 5 weeks. Btw, I live in the Middle East.
I drive a nissan murano and i tend to put the detector on the very bottom of the windshield (in the middle) because i think radar detectors here are illegal so i aint taking the risk. The wipers MIGHT be slightly blocking the view but if it is, it's very minimal.
Now i'm familiar with it and now i know why the hell it beeps next to hospitals or banks. (with K and X bands).
I also know that our country tends to use Ka Bands (photo radar). But what tends to happen is as follows:
Where i live the camera is faced towards the back of the car. Meaning, it tends to take pictures of the rear license plate and NOT the front like the US. What they also do is that they tend to put the camera in the middle pavement in between the trees OR a mini van would be parked on the side parking lane and a guy would in be front of it thus you wont be able to see him nor the camera. As a result, Ka band is detected by the radar while i'm almost next to it (50 metres or 65ft IF i'm lucky), thus not giving me enough time to brake or do anything....
i have read a few sites and here is a link where a guy also encountered this same problem:
