Damn...$25 bones for "New, Unused", why not. If it shakes off and goes flying I'm not gonna cry much...
Seller rating is only 3, hmmmm?
Thanks for the heads up.

My personal experience taught me that a more accurate name for these things would be "ticket detectors".

 :great:




Theres little to no 'residual' RF when LIDAR is being used. At least not within the 1000 feet range.  The LIDAR beam is only 4-5 inches wide. And, by the time anything you have 'beeps' your speed is already recorded.


Let us know how it works.

Understood, but radar types differ from town to town, county, state. If it saves you even a single time, it has paid for itself 25x over(maybe more when factoring 3 years of insurance increases) at $25.... That math forces me to conclude "why not!"

That's not a real Bel, Google the rx65 fake and you will see where they have been dissected. Really cheap Chinese knock off, no real laser and horrible sound card.

Probably right, but I have a Passport 8500 X50 than I can run side-by-side to ascertain performance, at $25 shipped I don't feel I'm risking much therefore I have little regard for ripping it open to see what makes it tick and making a science project out of it.

Curious to hear how this thing turns-out.

i own one of the Original RX65 pro's.... just had it completely refurbished by Bel last year for about $150, and it works better than ever!

The REAL RX65's were respected powerhouses for long-range detection.

UPDATE, no surprises, a scam, in the process of getting my money back- it is protected by Ebay purchase protection. Just going to take a few days...

Just keep looking, I found the Bel 995 on ebay with a blown speaker for $50. It's great for my needs to hook up with the headphone jack to the Sena SR10 or my external loud speaker.
If it ain't fast and won't corner... Crome it.
