    Default Is X-Band still used in DFW, Texas????

    I've had my X50 about 6 weeks have yet to detect a cop on X-Band. Is there anyone here the DFW metroplex that has actually confirmed a definite X-Band detection of a cop, or is it safe to turn it off??

    I turned mine off also. If you drive in the same places and always get an alert when they are around don't worry about it. If I go out of town I turn it on. If I don't get a radar hit from them and can see the radar and am not sure what they are running I will just turn x on and follow for a while. I only did this once and it ended up being K-band. Also believe it or not I would rather drive around all day with x off and take that one ticket that I met get for the year from the x band that hit me. It is that annoying here in DFW area.

    I'll be making a trip to Houston in about two weeks. I'll be headed down 35 to dallas then 45 to houston. I guess im a little concerned with X band in those small towns then with Dallas or Houston. Laser in Denton huh? Well I suppose they could give tickets out all day long if they wanted to. In my experience Denton to Dallas is a high speed race anyway. I always have a rabbit, but looks like I may need two. Funny though from Dallas to Houston its always slower.

    Yep, Northlake (near TMS) is BAD. They've got a Z28, Intrepid, Caprice wagon, and a Tahoe. All dark colors with dark letters and nothing on the roof (Caprice might?). If it weren't for writing tickets, Northlake wouldn't exist...there is no town...

    I've been lasered a couple times, but they ignored me...probably because I drive a white 92 Accord. Not exactly their prime target...I was definitely going fast enough!

    Every now and then you'll see a Denton laser trap just south of Denton with 1 on the bridge (or off in the grass) and a bunch pulling people over. I got tagged by that one time...

    Northlake has the most badass Camaro interceptor.
