Beltronics RX65-Red customer reports
This Beltronics RX65-Red review provides you with the radar detectors which are available to the consumers in two flavors which are: RX65 Red and RX65 Blue. There are minor differences between the different type of radar detectors which are the color of the LED display and the price. The RX65 Blue costs bit more than the RX65 Red, the reason being that the blue LED displays costs a bit more to make to the Beltronics. A question arises as to why should you pay more for the blue LED than the red LED, the radar detector enthusiasts say that the blue LED does not draw unwanted attention to the detector while red being a prominent color draws attention of the people, hence being a bad choice in some states and near military-bases.
The Beltronics RX65-Red is a good radar detector which has an excellent range and the signal strength is also very good. The RX65-Red customer reports shows that the owners of these radar detectors have reported the legitimate alerts at up to the two miles in the case of straight roads. This distance is enough for the driver to adjust his speed before the law officer can lock his radar gun at you. This unit also has very good results on the curve roads and on the hills as well. The Beltronics RX65-Red doesn’t include the GPS tracking system, not having this feature means that you will not be alerted by the location of the speed cameras, speed traps or the red light cameras. However the help it can provide you with is that if the fixed cameras emit a continuous radar signal then you will be alerted so you can adjust the speed.
There are different tones for the tones of radar signals, if it detects a Ka band signal you will be alerted with the chirping sound. There is also a voice alert which tells you in plain English which type of signal is detected. The Beltronics RX65-Red customer reports show that the volume of the detector is however very soft, if the windows are open or if you are listening got radio on the way then you are sure to miss the audio alerts it will give.
The Beltronics RX65-Red customer reports show that the radar detector does not give false alerts. The drawback that it has is the silver color of the detector with white lettering on the top. Its color makes it somewhat visible than the other black detectors in the market, which do not create reflection in the windshield or the dashboard. If the windshield reflections pose a problem then you might want to mount the unit off center or you may consider getting a darker model for your car.
