I bought a Bel RX65 Pro directly from Beltronics a few days ago and I drove around a little after I got home today. RX65 version 6.1 default mods(citySTD) and I set it to highway for maximum sensitivity. This is my first radar detector.
There's a Safeway store nearby and RX65 detected weak X band when I was getting closer. But RX65 didn't alert until I was like 200ft away from the store when I was going southbound. When going northbound, RX65 detected X band earlier (about 800ft) but it's still not great. Please look at the attached map. Red dot is where RX65 detected the X band when going soundbound, Blud dot - northbound.
I tried to mount my detector high or low and it didn't make a difference. Is the range my detector is getting considered normal???
