After being out of the RD game for a long time, I finally have decided to step up and purchase a top notch unit. I am trying to decide between an X50 or RX65. I realize that V1 is still at the top of the heap for most folks, but I can't justify the extra cost (so please don't try to convince me!)
I live in San Diego, but my main concern is highway driving and getting popped by the CHP. I drive out to El Centro (120 miles east of here) every couple of weeks and make trips to Vegas every few months. Both of those highways have long straight stretches of highway and are heavily patrolled by slick top cars that are hard to see. Of course city use is important too, but the highway is top priority.
I have read a lot on here before registering and posting, and from what I gather the CHP and local agencies predominantly use K and Ka around here. Laser doesn't seem to be in much use. I have also read that the RX65 seems to be a bit stronger in Ka but not as good for laser.
For those reasons, I am leaning more towards the RX65 (not to mention the fact that they are offering $80 rebate with the return of any old detector). Does anyone have any more insight to convince me to go with one RD or the other in my situation?
Thanks in advance.
