  • Whistler Pro 78: Now Shipping!

    The much anticipated Whistler Pro 78 radar detector arrived today, and are now shipping! If you had placed a preorder with us for this model, then your order shipped today and you should have received an email with your tracking number.

    For those that aren't aware, the Whistler Pro 78 has the same re-engineered performance of the (much anticipated) XTR-690, and will replace the current Pro 73. Unlike the XTR-690, the Pro 78 will not have a compass, but it will have a better (intense blue text) display and auto display dimming. Like the XTR-690, it will offer a 3 year warranty.

  • Guys of Lidar Radar Detector Test - March 2007

    The Guys of Lidar, a group of radar detector enthusiasts, has posted the results of their March 2007 radar detector and laser jammer test. Unlike a few other testers, the Guys of Lidar do not declare winners - they only post the real numbers from the testing. Here are a few highlights:

    • The Bel STi Driver had less than stellar performance on one Ka frequency, but other than that the STi put up superb numbers!
    • The re-engineered Whistler models, the XTR-690 and Pro 78, showed considerable improvement over previous Whistler models. We had hoped that they would turn in performance challenging the $300 and up Bel and Escort models, but it doesn't look like they are there quite yet.
    • The Bel Vector 955 was the big surprise. A great showing for a sub-$200 model!
