  • 33.400 36.000 GHz - SuperWideBand Ka

This radar detector provides reliable protection against all commonly used laser and radar guns as well as safety radar systems to help you stay ticket-free. Every time a radar is detected, the device uses audio warnings to alert that your speed is at risk of being recorded. The detector gives you enough time to reduce your speed, minimizing your chances of being stopped by the police. 360° coverage allows for reliable detecting from front, sides and rear, while POP detection detects the shortest signal of any police device and alerts you to slow down to the speed limit. The product is exclusive thanks to its ability to detect and alert to the LTI TruSpeed S.

Featuring a high gain lens, the detector allows for increased field of view and lets you choose either of four modes to reduce false alerts, both in the city and on the highway. You'll also like the Stay Alert feature that tests your alertness during late nights or long trips. For your extra convenience, all features selected (except Stay Alert and Quiet) are retained in the memory of the detector. It installs in almost nothing flat either on your vehicle's dash or windshield. Laser detectors are completely legal in almost every state when used in cars or light trucks. Exceptions are Virginia and Washington DC, where local regulations restrict the use of radar receivers in vehicles.

The Whistler Group is a leading electronics company that manufactures a variety of laser detectors, power inverters, wireless inspection cameras, DVRs, radio scanners, TPMS systems, etc. for your extra safety and comfort. The company was established in 1971 in Arkansas by a group of private investors who strained every nerve to build a brand of quality and proven performance. Whistler has been at the forefront of the industry for decades. Today it continues to attract new followers providing additional safety and extra comfort behind the wheel.

Works Like a Charm
Detects radars before they're even in sight. Looks good, plenty of warning. I ran the power wire under the dash and connected it to an "add a fuse" which cleaned up the wiring and opened up a cig lighter. I recommend this over a Cobra any day.

Good Radar Detector
I purchased this radar detector after I used Chinese one for three years. The whistler is much better and faster detecting signals.

Whistler Radar Detector
This is a second radar detector from Whistler. It is the best one I ever had. It saved me from tickets several times. I am impressed with its sensitivity.
