From the Manufacturer

Manufacturer's Description (October 30, 2008)
If you are as serious about safety as you are about driving, then you need the Professional Series RX65, an advanced radar, laser and safety detector. The RX65 is a breeze to use, and boasts extreme sensitivity to all Radar and Laser bands with over 10 times the range of other detectors.

If you are as serious about safety as you are about driving, then you need the Professional Series RX 65. Click to enlarge.

Controlling alerts is right at your fingertips using the included SmartPlug power cord. Click to enlarge.

Includes quick release windshield mount.

Available with blue or red LED display. Click to enlarge.

Superior Detection
The RX65 includes full X, K, SuperWide Ka, and Safety Warning System radar capability, front and rear laser detection, Beltronics' patented Mute and AutoMute, audible and visual band alerts, and all the performance you'd expect from Beltronics. Digital signal processing (DSP) gives you superior long-range ability, along with reduced false alarms. The AutoScan mode can virtually eliminate those false alarms, and provides both Highway and City settings.

The RX65 also features Shadow Technology making it immune to VG-2 radar detector detection, meaning law enforcement can't detect your radar detector, keeping you one step ahead.

Ease of Use
The rugged RX65 gives you control right at your fingertips using the included SmartPlug power cord. Patented Mute and AutoMute technology on the cord allows you to quickly silence alerts. Advanced programming lets you customize several features, and programmable bands let you set the device for your region, including International and North American settings.

Installation is a snap: use the quick release mount to attach it to your vehicle's windshield, and remove it in a snap. Don't want to leave it in your vehicle? No problem, Beltronics includes a travel case to keep it secure while you're on foot.

Ultra-Bright LED Display
Don't miss a visual alert with the RX65's 280-LED display. Exclusive threat display tracks and displays multiple radar signals, including signal strength. Tech Display provides actual numeric radar frequency for any radar signal. You can also view Safety Warning System (SWS) messages about upcoming hazards, construction and more.

Red Light, Blue Light
The RX65 is available in both red and blue LED models, so you can choose the display that most suits you.

How Safety Radar Works
Safety Warning System, or SWS, uses a modified K-band radar signal to alert users of Highway Construction or Maintenance, Highway Hazard Zone Advisories, Weather Related Hazards, Travel Information/Convenience, and Fast/Slow Moving Vehicles. The SWS safety radar system has 64 possible messages (60 currently allocated), all of which can be displayed on your RX65.

I have utilized the RX 65 in over thousands of miles of highway driving. It never misses, and it has saved me tickets everywhere. One of the features I like best about this detector, compared to the Escort 8500 X50, which I also own, is the different sounds associated with each radar frequency range. For example, Ka detection emits a chirping sound, different from the warble for K band,and the tone for X band detection. This allows the driver to keep his eyes on the road rather than look at the radar detector. At those highway speeds this is a great advantage in trying to locate the source of the radar.

In informal tests by me, I found the RX65 slightly more sensitive than the Escort 8500 X50, although not by much.

In both cases, according to the some of the radar test web sites, beware that while these units claim invisibility to police radar detector detectors, they in fact do emit slight amounts of local osciallator signal detectable by newer model police radar detector detectors. Professional drivers note.

The new Beltronics STI radar detector, with zero local oscillator EMI, is the one to buy for professional drivers concerned with transmitting any measurable radar detector emissions.

I got this radar as a present from my in-laws. Of course, I knew what I was getting, since that was what I asked them to get for me for my birthday :-) . Anyhow. The first week, my brother-in-law borrowed it from me to go to NYC (we live in Upstate, NY - about 6 hour drive to New York City). When he came back, he didn't want to give me the radar back, that's how much he liked it. He's had a few radars in the past, but he said that this one is by far superior to all the other ones, including the latest one from Passport. The next week, my wife and I took a trip to Niagara Falls, and this little "guy" worked its magic. I could "see" the cops long before they could "see" me. So, here is a little pros and cons list for this item:

Pros:

Range - like I already mentioned before, it's got a great "range", and gave me plenty of time to slow down before the cops could catch my speed on their radar guns.

Features - it's got "tons" of cool features. You can program it any way you like it. It's also got one of those "safety" features on it. It tells you if there is a construction going on or an accident on a road ahead (this feature is not present in all areas though).

Controls - the controls are totally awesome! Their easy to access and very "user-friendly", meaning that you don't have to read through the manual to figure out how to do something. Even the power cord has a mute button on it! Very sleek!

Cons:

Price - this is probably one of the most expensive radar detectors on the market. But, if you want the best, be prepare to pay for it.

Summary: It's certainly not cheap, but I think it's well worth the price. Great radar! Highly recommended!

I was a little concerned as to if there would be much of a difference between the Bel RX65 and my old cobra. After driving around town for a few days I was more than impressed. This is the best radar detector I've seen. It Matches up with the Valentine One and, in my oppinion, is better. The range is amazing. I compaired it to my families three other detectors and some friends. None of them matched the distance detected. I tested the range by driving to where there was a fixed sign on the highway that informs you of your speed. All the radar detectors went off, but the RX65 went off over a mile down the road and well out of sight of the radar. The only false alarm I believed to find so far, I now believe to be comming from a real source. The laser alert goes off every day at a bridge off of the interstate. No visable law enforcement was found. The mute button on the adapter is handy if an officer is following you and has constant radar on just so the beeping doesn't annoy. Great product!

This product, according to RadarRoy website is the best radar detector you can buy. The Valentine V1 is awesome (especially the arrows), but it gives too many false alarms, and the Escort x50 is great, but this edges it out with ease of use...other sites will tell you the same. I've already CLEARY have been saved from one ticket and so with the price of the ticket and traffic school, this thing is alredy paid for and to think it will keep paying for itself. It's so easy to use and works so well. JUST LAST NIGHT I was with my friends Sam and Chris and I got a Ka warning and told them this means police (here in Southern California) and the warning got stronger and stronger and sure enough on the side of the road, at night when it's hard to see them, was a highyway patrol officer. He'd already pulled someone over, but that could have been us without the Bel. But, with this no way, the range is awesome and if there gun is on, you will pick them up WAY before they see you... Really, this is simply a new addition to my must have list of things in life and I would recommend it to anyone else who drives with spirit.

It's been over a year since I got this product. I spent around 340$ to buy it and another 100$ hard wiring and perma-mounting it on my dash. Since then - this detector has saved me from dozens of tickets. Even with a conservative estimate of 150$ per ticket that works out to over 4000 $. More than 10 times my investment. If you like to push the speed limits - this is a must have!

The build quality is good, it's easy to use, detection range is great. There are a lot of false positives (I always have it on highway mode), but you soon learn to tune out x band and listen for the Ka band and to a lesser extent K band. Of course - laser detection is iffy and rather pointless in my opinion. After all once you've been popped the fact becomes academic.

If you rely exclusively on this detector to warn you about speedtraps - this (or any other radar detector) might not help you much. Instead - if you use this as an additional early warning mechanism and augment this by staying alert, keeping an eye out for obvious speedtraps etc - this baby will pay off.

Now to the less savory details. Beltronics customer support sucks. Period. End of story. If you purchase this product from Beltronics directly - they hear you out grudgingly. If instead - you purchase this product from ANYONE else - they just tell you contact the seller. They will not answer even simple technical questions. They will not help you troubleshoot your device. They will not accept returns or honor their warranties. Their stock excuse being the large number of duplicates or rebuilt units flooding the market. The only recourse you have is to go back to the seller. Optionally I guess you could report them to the BBB.

In my case I was lucky, since the seller ([...
