I sold my Bel 985 to a friend to get the Bel 995. I purchased the 995 (off of eBay... Vers 3.6 FCC ID# QL4G1S7) a few months after selling the 985, so I had forgotten the distance of detection from the 985 by the time I got the 995. I thought the 995 was doing great and much better than I had remembered the 985 perfoming, except I noticed it falsing a lot more, ( I called Bel and they said b/c it was a lot more sensitive than 985 was).
I say all of that to say I got the 985 back and have been comparing it with the 995.
I had both units on Highway mode...
985 mounted on visor, and 995 mounted left side about middle of the way up.
THe 985 out detected the 995 by about 2-3 secs on about 4 or 5 different occasions including a Ka Band.
Do you think I have a bad (Refurb, 2nd) 995 detector?
Would the mounting have caused this much of a difference?
Do you think the 995 needs to be upgraded to Vers. 4.5?
Any feedback would be great...
