Hi everyone I need your help. My XTR 560 was recently stolen so i am now considering replacing it with the XTR 690 or Pro 78. I have a couple of questions though. I looked around the forums and it seems that the performance is comparable between both units and better then the XTR 560 in the KA band. However I live in NJ where i believe X-band is still king. Are the new units as good as the 560 in detecting X-band? Also one of my favorite features was the ability to keep the backlight of the screen off until an alert was sounded then the screen would light up bright. I believe the setting was called OFF-BRT. I have looked at the new manuals and have not seen this option(just the reverse is listed BRT-OFF). Can anyone confirm this can me done with the 690 or 78? Thanks for all your help.
Is x-band detection as good as the XTR 560?
Does OFF-BRT backlight mode exist?
