Like Mem-Tek was saying, might as well start a thread with any known bugs or things that could be inproved on the GX-65. Lets help them help us...you know
Ill start with a copy of the email I sent them explaining what I have found so far. People can chime in with their feedback and hopefully we can see a firmware update soon.
Come on be part of the fixes!!
My email to them:
I am contacting you about some issues I have discovered on the GX-65. I am a
member of radardetector.net and have been doing some testing on this detector.
I own it and use it every day.
1. In normal operation when under 20 mph, if hit by K band the RD beeps twice
and is silent with full bars. However if you turn the GPS off, it still
continues to do the same thing (as if the GPS is stuck on). If you then cycle
the power to the RD (radar detector), then you will get full tone and full bars
at 0 mph when hit by my Kustom Falcon K band gun. I think there is some kind of
bug that does not allow the GPS to turn off or "unlatch". Also, school zone
speed limits in the southwest are only 15 mph. Therefore the lower limit on the
gps muting should be 15 mph and not 20. In highway mode there should be no GPS
muting unless at 0 mph since we want the highest sensitivity at all times.
2. I lock out a K band 24.179 door opener and drive by, the satellite symbol
will start to spin like normal with no alert at all. If I then pull out my
Falcon K band 24.145 and hit it, there is still no alert at all !! I have
tried this with 3 different K band guns and all are the same result of no alert.
To add to this, it turns out the lockout raduis is about .7 miles. That equals
1.4 miles total diameter that a LEO (Law Enforcement Officer) could hit me with
K band and Im caught since there will be no alert.
I think that whenever a person is in a lockout zone, whether or not it is
actually detecting the door opener or not, the smart cord should be flashing.
The Sat symbol is just too hard to see spinning unless you are actually looking
at it. Maybe you can make some of these things user options to turn flashing on
Hopefully these items can be fixed with a firmware update in the near future. I
would love to make th GX a better product for both us and you.
