2006 Beltronics RX65 X 2
Work good when they work
they fail and bell is not easy to deal with
Bought 2 of these new on 4-11-06. One failed within 30 days, and the other within 3 months. The way BOTH of them failed is that when you plug them in, the lights come on for a split second then they power off. No beeps are emitted. I called to return them and they said they knew nothing about the problem which I find VERY hard to believe since both failed the same way in two different vehicles. The cords are fine, I am using one of them on my old Passport 8500 to this day. The serial numbers on these units is a consecutive 2 numbers, so maybe it was the batch??? Who knows for sure. Turn around time is 20 days at Bell, so that is not great either. If you do buy these units buy directly from Bell because they try everything to get out of fixing the units. I paid 702.79 for these two RX65's that don't work and I will be sending them back tomorrow since I finally found my receipt. They would not even talk to me on the phone when I told them I could not find the receipt at first call a few months ago.
I would avoid these units and I should have stuck with the Passport 8500 that is still working great from 2001.
