Djtimex1 -

Sorry. Preferences "mode" is really programming mode. To enter Preferences mode, press and hold the MRK and SENS buttons on your detector for a few seconds.

Please dig out the instruction manual before you do this. Your iX came with a printed, abbreviated instruction guide. Turn to the page that says "Settings and Preferences". It will list all the options you'll go through once you've entered Preferences mode.

The instruction guide will tell you how to step through the options and how to change an option once you've reached it and it's shown on the display.

You can also do a factory reset which will restore the detector to the factory settings but you will also lose the autolearned locations your detector has accumulated so far. This is quicker than stepping through the options but it's probably safer in that you won't inadvertently change a setting.

If you choose to do the factory reset, press and hold the BRT and SENS buttons and then power on the detector. It will say "Restored" on the display if you've been successful.

Don't do the factory reset if you want to keep your autolearned locations. If you do a factory reset, the detector will relearn your locations but you're in for a week or so of noisier driving while it does.

If you haven't already done so, reading the short instruction guide that came with the iX would be time well spent.

When in Preferences be sure in "User Mode" you select "Advanced" (not "Novice").
If you are in "Novice" mode many of the Preferences are not shown. If you are in Novice mode, change it to Advanced and let the detector sit a few seconds to lock in Advanced and exit Preferences. Then go back into Preferences again then everything should be available, if this was the issue.

Thanks poolmon - you beat me to it.

Djtimex1 - be patient. The guys here are good and we'll get you though setting up your iX.

Read the instructions.
