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.
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.

Reset Features
All user features can be reset to factory settings.
• Unplug the Power Cord from the unit.
• Press and hold the Power and Quiet buttons.
• Plug the Power Cord into the unit.
• Wait for 2 beeps.

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). 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.
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.
16
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, 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.

LASER/RADAR ALERTS
TROUBLESHOOTING
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
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.
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 guide, but is not operating optimally, please
refer to the troubleshooting guide below.
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.
Laser Audio/Visual Alerts
When a laser signal is detected the audio alert is
continuous for a minimum of 3 seconds.
PROBLEM: Unit does not turn on.
• 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.
Caution: Do not lock out a PPS rate if it is close to
known speed laser guns.
POP™ MODE ALERTS
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 transmitted. Because
POP™ Mode radar utilizes the same K or Ka band
frequencies, POP™ Mode Alerts will be displayed as
regular radar alerts.
17
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).
OPERATION
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.

INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION
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 user guide
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.
IMPORTANT: Some newer cars have a plastic safety
coating on the inside of the windshield. The windshield
bracket may leave permanent marks on this type of
surface. To find out if your vehicle has this type of
windshield, check the vehicle’s user guide or ask your
dealer. We recommend that you do not leave the
suction cup bracket on the window in direct sunlight. If
the detector is removed, this may cause blistering of
the dash in some vehicles.
IMPORTANT: Unscrew slowly. The tip contains
a spring which may fly out when disassembling.
Insert the new fuse with the spring and screw on
the tip. With use, screw cap on plug may loosen.
Retighten occasionally.

OPERATION
X/K and Ka Filter Modes
There are times when a radar detector in another
vehicle, can emit a frequency which can cause your
detector to falsely alert. These Filter Modes allow
you to select the level needed for your area to
minimize the occurrences of these false alerts. X/K
and Ka Filter Mode factory default settings should
provide adequate filtering for most conditions.
If you experience excessive alerts due to radar
detectors in other vehicles, increase the Filter level
for the band received. See Option Selection Mode
to change the filter settings.
Ka Max Mode
Ka Max Mode provides enhanced Ka sensitivity increased protection. This mode can be selected
with or without RSID. See Option Select Mode for
changing Ka options.
Field Disturbance Sensor Rejection (FDSR)
Traffic Flow Sensor Rejection (TFSR)
Recently many new products that operate on police
radar frequencies have been causing nuisance alerts
to radar detectors. These radar based sensors are
installed alongside the Highway and more recently
on vehicles used as lane change assist / blind spot
detectors / collision avoidance systems. TFSR when
turned ON is designed to eliminate alerts from
specific Traffic Flow sensors. FDSR when turned
ON is designed to identify all radar based collision
avoidance systems that operate all radar based
collision avoidance systems that operate within the
same band as police radar and provide a brief less
intrusive alert to keep you informed and aware.
A signal strength indicator will help determine
your proximity to the source without the continued
annoyance of audio.
We suggest you turn FDSR ON if you are
experiencing excessive random false alerts when
behind select vehicles.
