Superior Detection
The GX65 delivers the best long-range warning on all radar bands including X, K, Superwide Ka, Ku, and instant-on POP. Multiple front and rear laser sensors provide 360-degree laser protection, including the widest field of view. A revolutionary AutoScan mode provides real-time radar performance based on vehicle speed, plus Highway and AutoNoX settings.

In addition, the new Safety Camera Database provides warning for thousands of locations throughout North America, and web-ready access allows you to update your safety camera data and other software through Beltronics' website.

Excellent Functionality
The GX65's 280-LED text-matrix display gives you easy-to-read messages and visual alerts to match the crystal-clear voice alerts. Simple user programming lets you instantly set several features. Use the optional SmartPlug for instant Mute and AlertLock access.

Installation is a breeze as well. Just use the quick release mount to attach it to your vehicle's windshield, and remove it in a snap. The included travel case lets you pack it up and take it anywhere.

BRT Dark (Full Dark Mode)
In this mode, the display will not show any visual alerts when the GX65 detects signals. Only the audible alert will tell you of detected signals.

Mark Location (MRK)
The "MRK" button allows you to mark a specific location and label it for future reference. Once marked, the GX65 will provide an alert with an arrow indicating the direction of the location when you reach this area again. This can be extremely useful for known speed traps or camera locations that you'd like to remember.

Speed Check
The GX65's Speed Check feature provides a visual indication of your vehicle speed during the first few seconds of an alert. This allows you to instantly check your speed without looking at your speedometer. Speed Check is displayed regardless of your meter setting.

New Variable Speed Sensitivity also provides real-time radar protection based on your vehicle's speed.

I find it amusing when people write reviews claiming the GX65/9500ix "beat the $#@ out of the other! I tried both!"

Escort purchased Beltronics a while back. The 9500ix and GX65 have virtually the same guts and are made by the same company. Don't believe me, go search google for things like (without the quotes) "gx65 9500ix same company", or "9500ix gx65 same unit", or "gx65 made by escort"

This means functionally (distance to pick up radar, camera databases, etc) are pretty much identical. The 9500ix is a little more foofy it is kind of like buying a Lincoln instead of a Ford. Some say the 9500ix is a hair more sensitive but in real life the difference is so small (or non-existent) it's a pointless debate.

Some minor differences are:

- The voices and alerts are different. Personal choice there. 9500ix = sexy lady, GX65 = manly man
- The display color (blue on 9500ix is more expensive to manufacture, red on gx65 cheaper)
- 9500ix auto-learns repeat alerts (door openers, etc.) where you have to manually push a button on gx65 (manual learning)
- The Passport 9500ix can display four X-band, two K-band and 2 Ka-band signals w/ strength on it's screen at the same time. The GX65 can only display one X-band, one K-band and one Ka-band signal on it's screen at the same time. Rather pointless for me as if the detector is going off I'm looking down at my speed, not the display to analyze the situation. A fun doodad but probably not important to 90% of the users.

For most the biggest concern will be auto-learn. The 9500ix will autolearn after three passes by the same signal (both units have a GPS) where with the GX65 you must push a button. Perhaps if you are a driver in a big city/metro area auto-learn may be nice. Perhaps for others they may like manually choosing what is ignored and what is not.

And there you have it.

I've driven with the GX65 for several months now and it is without a doubt my favorite dectector and I've owned many! The GPS feature allows me to lock out annoying false alerts, plus the built-in database is preloaded with all the red light and speed camera locations popping up everywhere. These annoying camera locations alert in plenty of time to check things out in advance. $29.95 extra for the 3 year update subscription, which I haven't purchased as yet. Once I've marked all the false alerts on my drive to work, the GX65 is quiet and alerts to just true police radar. I've never driven with such a quiet detector. The unit comes with a very nice case and "Smart" power cord that works like a miniture control panel right on the dash. Highly reccommended!

The Beltronics GX65 is one of the best radar/laser detectors I have ever owned. I originally purchased the detector for a cross country trip from Los Angeles, to Chicago, and then down to New York City. For this trip I used my Subaru STI, a vehicle which normally gets an unfortunate amount of police "attention."

This detector alerted me to all of the red light camera locations and was 100% accurate for all speed trap locations. The two cases which impressed me the most were: radar alert from two miles away - speed trap over a hill, around a small bend, and under an overpass near the CA/Nevada border; and a radar alert from three miles away - officer parked behind a building. Enforcement across the country was very aggressive - there was not a single state that I drove through, where I did not see fewer than five people stopped.

The GX65 also allows people to enter in speed trap locations and you will be alerted to known speed trap locations. The unit also allows you lock out false signals, although these have been rare for me. Once you get the hang of the remote unit on the power plug, you can easily mark, lockout or change the volume of the detector. You simply use one button to cycle through what you could change and another button to cycle through the settings, very user friendly.

I would be hard pressed to find fault with this detector but there are a few minor glitches. Sometimes road signs will set off the X band alarm, but you can lock out the signals. The other issue is that the plastic lens is a bit softer than I would like - mine has some wear but still works very well. I remove the detector whenever I leave the car for any length of time and this "may" have helped the detector continue performing "like new" for almost 10 months now (as of June 2010).

If you want a quality radar/laser detector, this is the one to get. With my cross country trip, mine has already paid for itself several times over.

The Beltronics GX65 is the best radar detector that I have ever owned. I have had many over the years including the Valentine V1. Although this is a good detector, the GX65 gives me more warning on the signals that matter as well as not having to worry about listening to it go off for the wrong reason (You tell it what you want to not listen to). The other thing that is great about this detector is the pre-warning it gives when you are approaching a red-light camera. It tells you exactly where these are before it is too late.
Very well built, you can immediately tell you are not buying a product that skimps on material. The GX65 also comes with a very well written owners manual that is easy to understand.
Recommend very highly!!

A FORMER Valentine One owner's review.

First off, the V1 is a fantastic and ultra-sensitive detector. I've had three of them in the past 10-years. The range is fantastic and it saved me countless times. It does have the arrows, which are great and all, but I found myself not really needing to know where the threat was coming from. What I really wanted was to 1) know the threat was real and 2) slow down to the posted speed limit if it was. The V1 never delivered on the "Is it real part?". It was always barking at me, proud to point me to various non-threatening radar-sources in the city or along the highway. Yes, it saved my ass a lot, but the noisy commute was getting to me.

I purchased a GX65 after reading some favorable reviews online and in various forums. After one week, I knew this style of detector was right for me. The sensitivity was very equitable to the V1, but it shined above it because of its built-in GPS feature. I pass by six K-based RADAR Speed Limit signs each way on my commute. With GPS marking, I could easily lock out those specific non-threatening signals. The next time I would pass by, the system would be silent. When approaching one of these "marked" locations, the GPS icon on the display would start to rotate. This was essentially the GX65 saying, "I'm picking up the radar signal, but I'm not "bleeping" because you told me this exact location is not a threat". Simply awesome! The unit is quiet until an unknown threat is detected. When it detects something, it alerts me and I slow down. A few seconds later, I'm usually smiling as I drive by a LEO at the posted speed limit.

Like I said, simply awesome.
