    Default senstivity ratings???

    My radar detector has these senstivity ratings:
    X - 110 dBm
    K - 95 dBm
    KaP - 95 dBm
    KaW - 95 dBm
    Laser - Better than 1

    Are they good? what are the ratings on Rx 65,V1, X50? Any one know?

    That sucks pretty bad! What is your radar detector? Even the lowly PNI's supposably have X, K, and Ka sensitivity of -104 dBm, -111 dBm, and -104 dBm respectively.

    Let me guess, you're using an older model Road Patrol from Radio Shack?

    I'm not sure if the E795 is better or not.

    For the RX-65 and X50, sensitivity numbers are in the neighborhood of:

    -110 dBm X
    -106 dBm K
    -106 dBm Ka 34.7

    Some versions might be slightly better on X and K.

    As for the V1, that is anyone's guess....

    So the Rx65 and X50 are just 10 points more senstive than mine in K an Ka band and same on X band. so does at make a lot of difference in radar detection? :?: :?

    I believe that every three (3) points is a doubling of sensitivity. So, yes, 10 points is quite a lot.
