Windshield Mounting
• Mount the unit as low as possible near the center of the
windshield.
a
u
.
o
t
u
• Do not mount the unit behind wipers, ornaments,
mirrored sunscreens, etc. These obstructions have metal
surfaces which can affect radar and laser signals and
reduce critical warning time. (Regular tinted glass
does not affect reception).
• Some windshields have an Instaclear™ or Electriclear™ type
coating, which affect radar signals. Consult your dealer or the
owner’s manual supplied with your vehicle to determine
if your windshield has this coating.
a
in
• Avoid placing the unit in direct contact with the windshield.

City/City 1/City 2 Modes
Whistler’s City Modes are designed to reduce the annoyance
of automatic door openers, intrusion alarms and other devices
which share frequencies with police radar. Generally, X band is
used for these devices.
Highway Mode
Highway mode provides full audio warnings any time radar (X, K
and Ka) or laser signals are detected, and is recommended for
open road driving.
a
u
.
o
t
u
• Press City to cancel Highway Mode and engage City
Mode. The display will switch from“H” to “C”.
• Press City again to enter City 1 Mode.
• Press City again to enter City 2 Mode.
Note: The City 1 or City 2 numeric indicator only illuminated
a
in
briefly.
• Press City a fourth time to cancel City 2 Mode and
returns the unit to Highway Mode.
w
In City Mode, weak radar signals give an initial alarm of two
beeps, and then remain quiet until the signal becomes very
strong. When the signal strength increases, two additional
beeps are provided. City 1 and City 2 Modes operate the same
as Highway Mode, but in City 1 Mode, only the X band is
lowered. In City 2 Mode, X-band is not
detected.
Caution: Some towns/small cities may still be using X band
radar. City Modes do not change the audio alert for laser.
For more information on City and Highway modes, please visit
our FAQ page on our website: www.whistlergroup.com
Signal Strength Display
When a radar signal is detected the audio alerts have a geiger
counter-like pattern to help you determine the strength of the
radar source; the faster the beeping the stronger the radar
signal. At the same time the audio is reporting, the display
illuminates the band identification Icon and relative signal
strength from 1 to 9.
1 = weak signal, 9 = strong signal
Alert Periscopes
Whistler’s Alert Periscopes provide an added attention getting
visual alert. The two extra LEDs flash on and off when the unit
alarms to provide a unique visual alert. This alert can be
programmed, through the Option Select Mode to:
1. flash for all alarms
2. remain on
3. turn LEDs off completely

RADAR/LASER ALERTS
Stay Alert Feature
The Stay Alert Feature is designed to test a driver’s alertness.
To engage (when the unit is not alarming):
• Press and hold the City button for approximately 2 seconds.
Release the button during or immediately after the alert is
given.
Within 30-60 seconds, two beeps are sounded; to show alertness,
the driver must press either the City, Menu, or Quiet buttons within
3-5 seconds. If a button is pressed within 3-5 seconds, the cycle is
repeated. Before unit alerts, press PWR to exit this feature. If a button
is not pressed within 3-5 seconds, an alarm sounds and the entire
display flashes.

• Press the Power button to exit.
WARNING!!! Stay Alert is NOT intended as a substitute for adequate
rest. You should NOT operate a vehicle if you are drowsy. During
extended periods of vehicle operation, you should take frequent
breaks. Improper reliance on the Stay Alert feature may result in
vehicle damage, personal injury or death. NEVER OPERATE A
VEHICLE IF YOU ARE DROWSY.
w
LASER/RADAR ALERTS
Speed Radar Audio/Visual Alerts when X, K or Ka is
detected, the band ID and signal strength are displayed.
The audio alert is continuous and has a Geiger counter-like
pattern. The faster the beep, the closer or stronger the
radar source.
Laser Audio/Visual Alerts
When a laser signal is detected the audio alert is continuous
for a minimum of 3 seconds.
• The unit‘s “L” icon will illuminate along with a corresponding
segment to indicate the general PPS rate of the source.
Pulse Protection®
Pulse (or instant-on) radar is more of a threat than
conventional radar because it remains “off” until activated
to measure the speed of a targeted vehicle. When a pulse
type transmission is detected, your Whistler detector
sounds an urgent 3-second audio warning and the display
shows a “P”.
After the 3-second pulse alert, the standard alert pattern
continues for as long as the signal is present. It is
important to respond promptly to a pulse alert, since
warning time may be minimal.

ARE DETECTORS LEGAL?
Check with your country’s laws reguarding radar detector
ownership and use.
It is the responsibility of the individual radar detector
user to know and understand the laws in your area
regarding the legality of the use of radar detectors.
POP™ Mode
POP™ Mode is a feature on some radar guns operating on K
and Ka bands. When the gun is in POP™ Mode and
activated, a brief burst of energy, less that 1/15 of a second, is
transmitted and the vehicle’s speed is quickly acquired. A
detector without POP™ Mode detection capability cannot
respond to this brief transmission.
Laser Facts
It’s well documented that many radar guns cannot reliably
provide the speed of a targeted vehicle that is traveling in a
group of vehicles. In contrast, a laser gun can target a specific
vehicle out of a line of traffic and determine its speed. The
advantage of laser over radar in terms of target identification is
the result of the laser gun’s narrow beam. A radar gun’s
transmission can cover more than a four-lane highway at a
distance of 1,000 feet, compared with a laser gun’s transmission
which covers about 3 feet at the same distance.

SPEED MONITORING TECHNOLOGIES
SPEED MONITORING TECHNOLOGIES
For best protection, keep these points in mind:
• Because the vehicle’s license plate or headlights are the
laser gun’s primary targets, mounting the Whistler
detector on the dashboard can improve laser detection at
short range.
• Do not follow closely behind any vehicle you cannot see
through. If you can’t see past a vehicle ahead of you,
chances are your detector can’t either.
• The receiving range of your laser detector will not be the
same as a radar detector. Laser guns are most often used
at short range. Whistler Laser-Radar detectors receive all
current laser guns which operate at a laser wavelength of
800-1000nm.
Radar Facts - Continued
This laser/radar detector receives signals from traffic radar
guns at X Band (10.500 - 10.550 GHz), K Band (24.050 - 24.250
GHz), and Ka Band (33.400 - 36.000 GHz).

Laser Tips
If you are the targeted vehicle, a laser gun can often
determine your speed within a few seconds after you receive
an alert. In this situation, there is generally no time to safely
adjust your speed. However, if you are traveling near or
behind the targeted vehicle and receive an alert, response
time should be sufficient. Any laser alert, regardless of
duration, requires immediate action.
w
Radar Facts
A radar gun operates by transmitting radio waves at certain
frequencies which reflect off objects and are picked up by
the radar gun’s receiving section. When a radar beam reflects
off a moving target, a measurable frequency shift occurs. The
radar unit converts this shift into miles per hour to determine
your vehicle’s speed.
26
Note: Your radar detector is designed to alarm if an officer
is transmitting on any one of the above radar bands.
Other Speed Detection Systems
Several techniques other than radar or laser are used to
measure vehicle speeds. When these methods are being
used, no detector can provide a warning.
These techniques include:
• Pacing - A patrol car drives behind you and
matches your driving speed.
• Vascar/Aircraft - The police measure the time it takes
your vehicle to travel a known distance.
Radar Detector Detectors: VG-2, Spectre
The Interceptor VG-2 or simply VG-2, is one type of
microwave receiver used by Police to detect signals radiated
by the local oscillator of a radar detector. Because its
purpose is to identify persons driving with radar detectors,
these devices are known as a “radar detector detector”
(RDD). An RDD is the primary tool used by the police to
identify radar detector equipped vehicles. If caught in a
country where detectors are illegal, drivers risk losing their
radar detector and receiving a fine. In addition, instant-on
radar is almost always used in combination with an RDD,
leaving unsuspecting motorists
