    Default Poll for the X50 users

    Hey guys I was wondering what the X50 users use when they drive. Do you guys use Auto the whole time? Or do you manually put it on City/Highway. According to the radarbusters, it states that you should manually change modes. Has anyone tested if Auto works better/worse than city/highway? Also, I was wondering if we could all share what kinda specs we are runnning with on our X50's.

    For mine:
    Pop: On
    Sound: LOUD
    Display: Expertmode
    Automute: OFF

    Car: 04 Civic Si(white) w/ no window tint.
    Location-Middle of window

    Default For the record

    I leave mying on Highway all the time as I don't feel the X50 has as many false alarms Vs any of the V1,s I have used.

    I don't like city and auto modes. I like to leave my detector in the highway mode all the time because my detector hardly ever falses.

    I guess it really depends on the detector because there have been some other detectors I have used over the years and some of them just false too much to the point where I just find myself looking for the off or mute botton.
