Question about Pro RX65 Radar Detector

1 Answer

False laser alerts

Traffic or no traffic when the sun gets low in late afternoon my RX65 Pro gives constant false laser alerts. Seems like once it is set off it does not stop! Very annoying, not worth using when it starts if on a west bound route! I remove it from the windshield and put in the seat beside me and hope I get radar bounce. This is no good for laser of course. Going to try and mount further back in shade?

    The solution witch I discovered is simple, I just cover a rear laser sensor from the top with electrical tape, and it works so far good, no false laser alerts. I've been using this for 2(two) weeks.

    My Beltronics RX65 Has a lot of false laser alerts when the sun is low on the horizon. I called Beltronics and they said they do this.

Bel has a firmware fix to solve these issues. It if free if your RD still is in warranty. Of course, covering the rear laser sensor may solve the problem. That isn't a really bad idea since the rear laser sensor on all radar detectors is pretty much useless anyway.

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.

Got a whistler xrt-695 from individual. unit powers up goes thru all the frequencie alerts and laser alerts, scans menu to tell what is active. Seems to be perfect. x-band is on, K,Ka, Laser, all of it,...


how long have you had it? Have you had a radar detector before this one? Try a factory reset - hold in the power button and the quiet button, while holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. The unit will beep twice indicating that its reset. Remember the unit is not a "Cop" detector its a radar detector so not all police cars have radar in them and if they do they may not have it turned on.

Tomtom still charges but traffic receiver stopped working


I'm using the TomTom Go 730T - I think this is the latest and the last TT with Traffic because TT stopped supplying this option. I'm having the same problem from time to time but a reset helps. Just press the Reset button and after restarting the traffic option is back. Janos

Getting false laser readings, any adjustments?


This is fixable as described in other threads here. This is annoying and seems to be random, though it also does it sometimes when the wipers are turned on or I use the windshield sprayer. 2 minutes with a smal Philips screw driver and a Q-tip will fix it. I just did mine and it works great now.

Unscrew the three screws, pop the three components apart (it really is a no-brainer since they only fit back together ONE WAY, so don't be nervous. There is not anything that is going to fall apart or spring into a hundred pieces in there.

I used canned air to blow everything out and just used the Q-tip on the front window and the parts that looked like the detector window internally... I didn't bother swabbing all of the board.

IT WORKS! GREAT FIX!!!!! DO IT!! NO MORE FALSE LASER ALARM WHILE ACCELERATING and randomly.

How do i activate traffic alert


Question? Is traffic alert available where you live? If not then you will not be able to get it. Traffic alert is available in certain places only, and usually cities with a population of couple million or more. Hope this helps.

Alert msg from syamantec endpoint protection MS RPCSS attack


So lets just clarify what this is.

The Intrusion Prevention Engine in SEP is detecting network based attack traffic for a Microsoft vulnerabity - this will correspond to a security patch from Microsoft.

Whether you want to blindly ignore it is your choice, but you should at least confirm it is EITHER a false positive OR that your machines are patched against the vulnerability BEFORE you simply allow the traffic and potentially put yourself at risk.

Think about, do you know what machine the attack is coming from - is it on your network (it looks like it is), is it running SEP, is patched, etc.

Validating in jsp


JavaScript Form Validation JavaScript can be used to validate input data in HTML forms before sending off the content to a server.
Form data that typically are checked by a JavaScript could be:
  • has the user left required fields empty?
  • has the user entered a valid e-mail address?
  • has the user entered a valid date?
  • has the user entered text in a numeric field?
Required Fields The function below checks if a required field has been left empty. If the required field is blank, an alert box alerts a message and the function returns false. If a value is entered, the function returns true (means that data is OK):
function validate_required(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
if (value==null||value=="")
{
alert(alerttxt);return false;
}
else
{
return true;
}
}
} The entire script, with the HTML form could look something like this:
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function validate_required(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
if (value==null||value=="")
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true}
}
} function validate_form(thisform)
{
with (thisform)
{
if (validate_required(email,"Email must be filled out!")==false)
{email.focus();return false;}
}
}
</script>
</head> <body>
<form action="submitpage.htm"
onsubmit="return validate_form(this)"
method="post">
Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body> </html>
E-mail Validation The function below checks if the content has the general syntax of an email.
This means that the input data must contain at least an @ sign and a dot (.). Also, the @ must not be the first character of the email address, and the last dot must at least be one character after the @ sign:
function validate_email(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
apos=value.indexOf("@");
dotpos=value.lastIndexOf(".");
if (apos<1||dotpos-apos<2)
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true;}
}
} The entire script, with the HTML form could look something like this:
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function validate_email(field,alerttxt)
{
with (field)
{
apos=value.indexOf("@");
dotpos=value.lastIndexOf(".");
if (apos<1||dotpos-apos<2)
{alert(alerttxt);return false;}
else {return true;}
}
} function validate_form(thisform)
{
with (thisform)
{
if (validate_email(email,"Not a valid e-mail address!")==false)
{email.focus();return false;}
}
}
</script>
</head> <body>
<form action="submitpage.htm"
onsubmit="return validate_form(this);"
method="post">
Email: <input type="text" name="email" size="30">
<input type="submit" value="Submit">
</form>
</body> </html>

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.
