    8500 or 8500 X50?

    Turning off X band will not make a noticable difference in detection of other bands, but it will certainly make your ride quieter.

    Nice choice. X50 is an excellent detector.

    Turn POP off. If X is super rare in AZ (if used at all) I'd turn that off too. The quiet will be worth the super rare chance you could get an X-Band ticket.

    The 8500 is a great detector. Just run LoX or NoX in city mode and leave all bands ON in highway mode. You shouldn't have many false X running like this. I use these settings all the time with no problems. I also suggest using the scanning dots since it might let you know if you have a RD problem since the dots will stop moving.

    I'd say turn X and PoP off.

    came across 1 MPH gun, up near the dam North of Kingman once, not sure if it was even a PoP enabled unit. it was a county cruiser. And heard "rumors" that Eloy "may" have some old x guns, but have never come across one. have come across them shooting k band. I still leave X off even when going from phoenix to tucson, and I leave PoP off as well.
