well not tryin 2 be a **** but it explains all the bands in the manual.... i do know that x band is usually like electronic stuff like automatic sliding doors at restaurants and gas stations and stuff... i bought my dad a cobra and after he read the manual he understood his... it breaks everything down so just read the manual and u'll be set

How good does this Cobra work actually??? I've always been a little sceptical about laser detectors and there effectiveness??? And do you HAVE to mount it on the windshield?
