I was traveling north on a busy Hwy and 2 to 3 seconds before cresting a hill (15 degree) I got 2 Ka bars alert on my rx65 so I slowed down and hit the trip button at .7 miles. I saw the back end of a LEO, (the front end was facing north) He had two cars pulled over; still traveling north the bars started moving down at this time. I had traveled an additional .5 miles when suddenly the bars started back up at this time I knew he was coming up behind me at .6 of a mile I had to stop at a red light and the LEO moved to the far left lane and briskly passed me (full Bars) turning left going west (90 degrees from me) after 5-10 sec I still had 5 bars. The light turned green and I took off driving north and after .1 of a mile the rx65 goes silent. I knew the road he went down and there is no turn for at least a mile and it is very woody. Iím so impressed with RX65 KA band and its off axis performance!!!
Earlier today I was on my way into town on a small hilly straight road (45 speed zone going 57 mph) and the K band alerted with 2 bars. I slowed down to 45 mph and hit the trip button the car behind me started to ride my rear, I tried with a hand gustier (no not the finger) to alert them that a LEO was just down the road. I continued south finally I saw a LEO at 1.5 miles!! This was the best K band distance for me to date. Needless to say the person that was behind me followed me all the way into town and waved as I turn into Wal-mart.
My first RX65 performed very poorly so I sent it back. Because of the people and what I read on this forum I knew what to expect from this unit.
I do notice that the unit is much more sensitive in the USA (Ka band) and I always use it in the Highway setting.
Real world numbers
My best to date number
KA Band 1.7 to 2.0 miles ( INTL) flat straight road
KA Off AXIS- story above (USA) The must sensitive KA setting.
KA 60-70 degrees curve very wooded area .8 miles (This was in INTL)
K band 1.5 miles
K band rear detection .8 miles
X- Turned off
Laser- no false, not used in my area.
POP- Turn it off 2 weeks ago not needed in my area.
Note* Iíve only been using the USA KA setting for two weeks but I can see the difference.
