Why are there no audio alerts on my Beltronics Express 795 radar detector? The unit powers up and all alert lights work.. I've checked to ensure the "mute" button is off. I bought the unit new years


I know this sounds silly but check and see if you set it to mute. Most detectors have this option either in the set up sequence or by pushing the volume button down.

I should have mentioned if none of the suggestions work you may have a burned out speaker. The heat generated by the windshield dries the speakers out. I have had two speakers replaced in my Whistler 78 Pro in the last 5 or 6 years.

Laser alert constantly goes off


Laser is very sensitive to false alarms often set off when driving by an airport, or military base. Set your laser on City Mode and pay attention exactly where it goes off. Mine goes off constantly in the same place which is a air force base in Tucson, AZ. Unless you drive like crazy shut it off in the city although the cops like to use a hand held one in school zones. In 6 years of driving in Arizona I have had one real laser alert, and other than false alerts, real ones are far and few in between. Check when and where the unit alerts and use different sensitivity settings. One more thing, if your laser warning goes off you already have the ticket since the cops use them at close range unlike the radar bands. Hope this helps.

9500ci K band sensitivity


be aware the patrol cars change the bands to overcome the detection units on sale so that they can identify speeding drivers. Have you unit tested but if it proves ok then the changed band will be the problem. Over here they are using a combination of bands and infer red to detect speeders.

Most likely you will need to get a group loop isolator for it. I think escort sells one on their site. Or a good quality car stereo shop can get you one from Escort or PAC.

Cobra XRS 9440 will not detect police radar. Does not alert when I drive by a police car. How can I fix this problem? Is there a way to change the settings so that I can be alerted when there is police...


Radar detectors are not police detectors. Radar detectors only alert to police when the police have their radar guns turned on. Most police officers operate their radar guns in "instant-on" mode rather than leaving their radar guns turned on continuously. Instant-on operation involves very briefly turning the radar gun on for up to a second or two in order to get a vehicle's speed.

Cobra radar detectors are known to have great difficulty detecting the 35.5 Ka band radar gun frequency. This should be considered a serious problem since 35.5 Ka is the second most popular Ka radar gun frequency following the most commonly encountered 34.7 Ka radar gun frequency. There isn't much that Cobra can do about this issue since their competitors hold all of the really good patented solutions for detecting 35.5 Ka police radar while ignoring false alerts caused on this frequency due to other radar detectors.

I have a cobra radar dector esd 737 and i sdoesnt pick up cops tell they are like not even a half a mile ahead of you and tips or ideas how to get it to work better


Detecting of radar or lidar emissions depends on mounting of detector.In My experience it is best to mount it just above windscreen wipers.You must check if your detector is visible from license plate level. This is important for laser detection. For other measuring devices it's only important to be visible.Higher mounting facing downwards will reduce false X and K/Ka signals.It will reduce detecing of true as well, so it is all up to you.You must know that laser detecting only covers your car.It d'ont matter if a cop is 300m or 1800m away.X band has a large emission, and it is easily detected.K/Ka band is a pulse emitting and has a lot narrow detecting point.It is effective at max 800m.In ether case speed can be reduced 20-30 km/h in city, and 30-50 km/h on highway.
