I went from a Bel 980 to the RX65 and I can't help to think that my old 980 had way better range that my newer RX65 and I'd like to know if any of you have experienced this also? With my 980 about 80% of the time I would start getting alerts 2 or more miles away and a few times it picked up officers 7+ miles away. My RX65 hasn't done this once and most of the time I have less than a mile of warning. When I first received it and was running it unknowingly in International mode the range completely sucked! Then when I set it to USA it got a lot better but I miss those alerts that the 980 would give me because most of the time it would take me like 5 minutes to get to the officer. Either way I'm not complaning with the performance I'm getting because it has saved me quite a bit of times already and it does false a lot less than my 980 but I think that it might be at the expense of the range. So I would appreciate it if you could tell me whats the furthest out that you've picked up actual radar and what version are you running. If anyones interested, I have a v4.5 that I bough in December of 2005.
