Hello, I recently bought an x50. This is my first radar detector and I chose it because it has received great reviews. Unfortunately, however, this has already turned out to be a bad experience for me. I live in Louisiana and commute about an hour every day on I-10, and there have been several speed traps in the past few weeks. So far, it seems like my x50 will sometimes pick up these traps flawlessly but other times it won't even flinch. I have it mounted about midway up my windshield in the center, and just last week I got a speeding ticket. The cop circled that he had used radar and he was just parked along the side of the road, but my detector never went off. It's odd, because just a few days prior there were cops lined up in the exact same spot and the x50 picked it up from over a half mile out. Later that week there was another cop near the same spot and my x50 never picked that one up either, although my friend's Cobra did. Is there something wrong with my detector?
I've heard that if its left in the heat then it can cause problems, and I am in a pretty hot region (Louisiana). Is that the problem?
Thanks for any help or ideas.
