    Default X50 newbie dumb question.

    TYhanks again for all the info here. I've decided HWY mode always would probably be best for me, but I cant find a clear answer in the manual about turning X off all together. I see where you can kill it in city mode, but my question is, How can I turn it off all together, and leave my detector in HWY mode full time. Also I live in IL, and i am assuming no one uses X here anymore at least that is what i have been told, if anyone knows different, please le me know.

    Thanks again!!

    go into program mode press the left button until you reach bands...(last one) use the mute button on front to change from on to off...the rest of the bands are changed using the the right button.

    Also Bill make sure that you have POP mode enabled because it has been confirmed being in use in Illinois. I live in Indiana but work downtown Chicago, and have encountered many Illinois Troopers as well as Chicago Police.

    They are using low power x band here in Fox Lake, IL just north of Chicago suburbs. On Route 12, just past the Rt 59 exit, as you enter town, they sometimes use low powered x on the weekends.

    Woooooaaaa!! Glad I asked, and thanks for the help. I live pretty close to Fox Lake, and drive through there 2x a week. Thanks again guys. I will leave X on, and deal w/ the falses, also I have activated POP now.
