    Default looking for cheat sheet

    oh how I have wished I could recognize detectors in other vehicles as I pass by.

    I recently turned on pop on my RX65 and now I get all these falses. I usually look to see why and see cars/ trucks with detectors in them. they cant all be cobra's can they?

    Does anyone have a spotter cheat sheet for cheap detectors? Pictures tell a thousand words.

    p.s. sure I can do the research myself but I dont have the time! So I look to you guys for help

    There are a lot of Uniden models that cause false alarms too, and depending on the model they may even false on X and/or K band, not just Ka band. Older BELs can cause false alarms too, but we're talking extremely old ones, like the XKR700/800 which are 80s vintage.

    A couple tips-

    if it has black suction cups, it's normally crap. The vast majority with the black cups are Cobra and newer RMR. Also, if it's black with a silver circle around the speaker on top, it's a Radio Shack, those are crap. Lastly, search for some pics of Uniden units on google. A lot of them look pretty similar, and they're also junk.
