This is my first frequency radar/laser detector.
Plugged it in the other day, been using it since approximately covering 200 miles, these are the results:
Picking up LOTS of K band, most of it being from sensors upon the top traffic lights (both temporary and fixed) and other senors in urban areas.
Does pick up on Gatso camera's but finding due to the other false alerts it's hard to determine what IS a threat and what's not.
Haven't encountered a speed trap with Police using radar guns yet, but again it's gonna be hard to determine whether it's a threat until I'm more or less on top of em'!
Picking up a few Laser alerts also, these being false. sometimes while in traffic driving, others while manouvering in urban areas. None where the Police have set up traps!
Lastly and this is the MOST disappointing occurence yet. The Police had set up a mobile Gatso, clocking driver's speeds from a van with the unit placed in the rear of the van with a cutaway in the rear doors. The unit being in line with oncoming traffic. I believe this unit use obtains driver's speeds by using a Laser device connected to a camera. I drove past it over ten times, only once did the RX65 give me a laser alert!!!
I'm REALLY disappointed, I thought this was one of the best detectors available!! Doesn't seem to be performing like one!
Is this simply what to expect from it? Could it be malfunctioning or possibly the item I have isn't a European version?
