    Default Can X and K be disabled on E795?

    Long story short, I'm tired of bickering with my wife on who gets the V1 for the day. Ideally I'd like to get a 2nd V1, but eh...she's not as careful about concealing it from theives as I am when parked.

    I found a local clearance deal on a new Beltronics E795...$59 (reg price $79)! I just need to know if I can disable X and K on it. I've found that LEOs strictly use only Ka in our general area. Also, I should be able to make a cable to hook it up to the existing hardwired V1 outlet I already have installed under her mirror.

    I can't find a pdf manual on this thing anywhere. So I'm hoping some experienced users can provide input.

    No, unless there is some weird button combination that we do not know about. There is a City mode that reduces X band audio alerts though. You will still get a visual alert to them.

    If you do a search for Boomermans E795 vs Pro58 it should give you a lot of info specifically about the 795.

    I'll do the Search: http://radardetector.net/viewtopic.p...erman+e795+pro

    As far as I know you can not disable any bands, but I have not really sat down to see what combination might actually disable something that was not mentioned in the instructions.

    BEL 995, 895, or 965 will let you do it and they will offer better detection than 795

    Thanks for all the advice. Especially the link. I guess my searches missed that because of the BEL795 keyword with no spaces.

    I picked it up tonight. I've already permanently installed the mount and hardwired it to the V1 outlet in the other car. Took it out for a quick spin but never found any LEOs. I'm keeping it in City mode to mute the X alerts. Hopefully it'll stay quiet on K alerts.

    For kicks I tried running the V1 by its side. As soon as I turned on the 795, the V1 detected weak Ka but "J"unked the alert about a second later.

    It's gonna take some time to get used to the BEL alert tones. I know there are better BELs out there, but I couldn't pass this up for 40% off.

    Thanks again.
