    Auto analyzes all incoming signals, while city only does X band. Auto can delay alerting on all bands by up to one second (according to Bel). If you're likely to come up against X, Auto might be better for you. The threshold for X on city is pretty high, but the right frequency X signal will alert on auto at only 2-3 bars.

    Auto may be good for you then, city won't give much warning on X at all.

    AUto is very good for picking up X. I was not aware it looked at all incoming bands. Heck, it'd usually give me about a 30-40 second warning on K band at 45 mph

    Okay Team, here's the real deal on Auto vs. City: Auto mode provides long-range sensitivity even in urban areas with minimum false alarms.

    The City mode reduces the sensitivity of X-band to reduce X-band alerts. All other bands remain at full sensitivity.

    The above is almost a direct quote from the RX65 manual. And the city mode does in fact reduce the sensitivity of X-band, but in some RDs city mode will reduce the sensitivity of ALL bands, not just X.

    Depends on how the maker designed it.
