    Default v1 questions vs rx65. any feed back please

    have a rx65 second hand ver 2.6 here in nz
    am a bit dissapointed with the amount of distance warning i get some times,we have ka and laser here
    on the highway/motorway i get 800m in a head on till we meet,so asuming we are both doing 90-100km that is only about 1.6km.
    this is not to bad if just over the limit, but put me on my motorcycle and increase that to 140km out in the country and thats not alot of time as the cops ping at about 1km on open road.
    was in built up area and only got 400m
    photo radar get about 80-150m max
    have chance to get a euro version 3.821 v1 for a good price again second hand,,,what do you think will there be much differance
    QUESTIONS
    1/ what does the feature 5 do on v1 ..does this acually increase sesitivity on ka or just increase the alert as soon as v1 sniffs out an alert
    2/ feature 6 false alarm guard ..whats this on or off what does it do

    No, this only makes the signal strength bars respond faster i.e. more LEDs light up sooner

    This is meant to suppress short, weak Ka false alerts from other detectors. If you turn it off you'll get more false alerts. You can try with it off and see if it is bearable in your area.

    Hi Philnz Im in Chc i have a V1 825. I have had a Rx65 and dont like it. You dont have a dud Dude its the cops here. They turn down the ka power and zap people wrignt in front of them so when your 800m out your still getting 7/10 times their detection distance dont worry its the game dude. the V1 would be a much better buy GET IT ASAP. Then after you get it take it into radar direct and get them to send it off to V1 in the US and get it upgraded to the 825 (about $200 NZ or so) You wil find the arrows to be a great help! Now do you find the 65 to be a real Bit#h always alerting to other "junk"detectors your bloody cell phone sets it off and whatever you do dont turn the pop on OMG! This will not happen with the V! 8).
    Regards
    PS photo camera is had to detect for many reasons so getting a hit from 150 meters is not too bad you will find the 825 to be better!!!!!!!!!
