When programmed in USA mode they are like a "mini Redline" lol They are beastly for the $$$

I forgot to mention Delaware Leos love to use instant on KA. The RX65(USA) mode has never missed a shot. I had a Redline when first introduced. I prefer the RX65 at less than 1/2 the price - a great value.

The only reason I have another redline as my backup instead of the rx65 is that I do have a few stalkers around that fall on segment 6 on the redline and the rx65 in usa mode would not detect them at all.

Off topic but I agree.....the white MAX with the black trim and bezel looks killer. Although white is not a stealth color it is smart, white has zero heat soak in direct sunlight. Since the antenna lens is smoked it really would not make it any more visible from the outside peeking under the tint band anyway.

They should drop the ghastly blue and wood grain in favor of the white.

Default RX65 - 1st timer

Just purchased a refurb'd RX65 for use in the USA. To validate what I think I have read... is the only setting I need to make on the unit to achieve maximum performance/benefit USA mode.

Thanks in advance.

Referring to segmenting the Ka band, that is all you should need to do for starters. Other than that, if you are sure X band is not in use shut it off and shut off SWS. You should be pretty much good to go. You may want to have segments 2, 5, 8 on to start with. We don't have 33.8 MPH radar guns in my location so I run 5, 6, 7, 8 on my Redline. No Cobra and such false alerts for me. Just that stinking K bad pollution from other vehicles. Check your area for use of 33.8 MPH units. If none you may consider with caution until absolutely sure.

Yes, use Ka USA mode for maximum Ka performance against radar guns used in the USA.

The RX65 does not have any Ka segment selections, only Ka INTL (International) or USA.

Doh. Sorry about the confusion. Too many late nights and such........sheesh!
Should have stated that in USA mode the bands used in Ka sweeps are the ones used in North America.
