INSTALLATION
Mounting Guidelines
• Mount the unit as low as possible near the
center of the windshield.
• 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.
• Avoid placing the unit in direct contact with
the windshield.
• To reduce the possibility of theft, conceal
the unit when not in use.

OPERATION
Whistler has two new exciting features that will assist
the driving enthusiast to further identify threats from
laser and Ka band radar guns.
Ka RSID (Ka Radar Signal IDentifier)
Identify the difference between the likelihood of a Ka
threat vs. the likelihood of a Ka false from another
source (possible radar detector). The Ka RSID
feature will educate you to the common Ka speed
radar guns by displaying the nominal police radar
frequencies of 33.8GHz / 34.0GHz / 34.3GHz /
34.7GHz / 35.5GHz. The Ka alerts that do not fall into
the common Ka speed radar windows will be reported
only as Ka.
Note: This product is not a frequency counter. The
unit will categorize the received Ka signal and select
the appropriate information. Treat every Ka alert with
caution.
LSID (Laser Signal IDentifier)
Identify the Laser gun’s pulse rate or PPS (Pulses Per
Second) that is transmitted by the speed laser gun.
LSID may also be used to identify other forms of laser
sources such as LACC (Laser Assisted Cruise Control)
systems found in some high end vehicles.
If the Laser PPS information displayed is due to
another source such as local airports or LACC, LSID
allows you to Lock Out this rate from giving you the
continuous audio alert during this and any new
encounter of the same rate. To Lock Out a PPS, press
the Quiet button during the Laser alert. This will
place an * on the screen beside the PPS rate and
Lock Out this signature ID. Any new encounter with
the same Laser Signature ID will provide the display
information and two quick beeps.
Note: Common Laser PPS rates used in the USA are
100 / 125 / 130 / 200 / 238 / 380Hz. Other Laser PPS
rates used outside the USA include 600Hz.
Caution: Do not lock out a PPS rate if it is close to
known speed laser guns.

POP™ MODE ALERTS
TROUBLESHOOTING
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Speed Radar Audio/Visual Alerts
Your Whistler detector is expertly engineered
and designed to exacting quality standards to
provide you with reliable, trouble-free operation.
If your unit has been correctly installed following
the guidelines in this manual, but is not
operating optimally, please refer to the
troubleshooting guide below.
Laser Audio/Visual Alerts
PROBLEM: No display or audio.
• Check fuse in plug; replace if necessary with a
2 amp, 3AG type.
• Check fuse for lighter socket; replace if
necessary.
• Make sure lighter socket is clean.
During the summer months, avoid prolonged
exposure to direct sunlight by removing your unit
from the dash when your vehicle is parked for an
extended period of time. Do not spray water,
cleaners, or polishes directly onto the unit. The
spray may penetrate through the openings and
damage the unit. Also, do not use any abrasive
cleaners on the unit’s exterior.
POP Mode Alerts
™
Because POP™ Mode radar utilizes the same
K or Ka band frequencies, POP™ Mode Alerts will be
displayed as regular radar alerts.
LASER/RADAR 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.
When a laser signal is detected the audio alert is
continuous for a minimum of 3 seconds.
• The Displays Shows:
Pulse Protection®
Pulse (or instant-on) radar is more difficult to
detect 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:
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.
18
PROBLEM: Unit alarms when vehicle hits
bumps.
• Check for loose lighter socket; tighten and
clean.
• Check connections at both ends of the power
cord. Substitute another cord to determine if
the cord is defective. Return defective cord to
the factory.
PROBLEM: Audio alerts are not loud
enough.
• Cancel Auto Quiet Mode or City Mode.
• Check audio level setting (see page 8 ).
If difficulties occur which cannot be solved by
information in this Troubleshooting Guide, please
call Whistler Customer Service at 1-800-531-0004
or visit our F.A.Q. page at
www.whistlergroup.com/faq-detectors.asp,
before returning your unit for service.
ARE DETECTORS LEGAL?
In Most States YES.
Laser-Radar detectors are legal in every state
(except Virginia and Washington, D.C., which have
local regulations restricting the use of radar
receivers in any vehicle) when used in
automobiles or light trucks (under 10,000 lbs.).
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
issued a regulation, effective January, 1994 which
prohibits radar and laser detector use in vehicles
over 10,000 lbs. Prior to the FHWA regulation,
laws existed in New York restricting the use of radar
detectors in trucks over 18,000 lbs. and in Illinois in
trucks over 26,000 lbs.
FCC INFORMATION
FCC ID: HSXWH20
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device many not cause harmful interference,
(2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Important:
FCC requirements state that changes or
modifications not expressly approved by Whistler could
void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
19
20
SPEED MONITORING
POP™ Mode
POP™ Mode is a feature on some newer 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. 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 905
+/- 10nm.
21
SPEED MONITORING
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.
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.
Currently, the FCC (Federal Communications
Commission) permits operation of 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).
Note: A radar detector will only alarm if an
officer is transmitting on any one of the above
radar bands.
SPEED MONITORING
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 state or
country where detectors are illegal (see page 20), 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 vulnerable to receive two tickets; one potential
for speeding, and the other for possession of a detector.
Note: The newest tool Police have to detect radar
detectors is called Spectre. Spectre can detect the
majority of undetectable (VG-2) laser/radar detectors
on the market.
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.
WARRANTY INFORMATION
Consumer Warranty
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.
