hello, i just purchased the bel gx 65, and i just tested out. the gps cam detections works great. however, i am having a problem with the radar detections. i have it on factory default settings, i dont know if its the auto scan or what is the deal. i live in dallas, and clearly i see there are patrol vehicle but the detector never even went off (appx. 10police vehicles that i visually see since i begin using this detector). i also know that a couple of them is park on a parking lot facing the street and they are trying to catch some speeders. still the detector never went off. i dont know if it is suppose to be like this or not since its in the city and i'm not going very fast (between stop and no more than 40mph on those occasions). again, its been set in autoscan. when i'm in the highway, the radar detections works better i suppose. two times, they warn me of a K and Ka band and there were patrol vehicle present ahead. then there is one time, i see a sheriff facing the highway service road waiting to catch some speeders, but it did not went off.
so now, i dont know if it is suppose to be like this or do i have to change any settings? i only had this detector for a few days and havent had a long tryout. but the more i think about all those times when my detector (gx65) did not go off, it frustrated me, i'm considering returning it and getting the passport 9500i instead. i paid too much for this bel gx65 and does not perform to my expectation...does anybody have a opinion or feedback on the issues i'm facing with this detector?? any suggestions or comments is greatly appreciated!!
