  • New Whistler Elite Series Radar Laser Detectors

    Whistler recently introduced a line of radar and laser detectors designed for higher performance in a very tiny package. Called the Whistler Elite Series, this new line entered the radar detector market with three models, the 5000EX, 5025EX and 5075EXS.

    As features go, these new detectors are not far removed from the latest models in Whistler's CR series. In fact, the feature sets are nearly identical when comparing key models across both lines. However, it isn't the list of features and functionality that makes the new series Elite. It's the package itself. These new detectors have two unique attributes, both of which are quite impressive on their own. The first is the size. The second is the display.

    The Whistler Elite Series radar laser detectors aren't just compact, they are tiny. Seriously, each model is so small, it not only fits in the palm of a hand, it also fits easily in a shirt pocket! Yes, it's that tiny. To pack the features of a mid-range or high end CR series Whistler into such a small shell that weighs only 3.2 ounces (90 grams) isn't as much elite as it is amazing.

    Imagine the possibility of palming your radar detector at a traffic stop if needed. With a detector this size, it's now possible. Then again, as feature packed as these units are, it's more difficult to imagine the part about the traffic stop than the little sleight of hand.

    And if its size doesn't impress, the visuals probably will. The 5000EX and 5025EX are equipped with a blue OLED display for bright, sharp text. The 5075EXS is even nicer to read, because it has a full color OLED display! Of course, the display can be dimmed as needed and can be operated in full dark mode if necessary. The display on each model is also bilingual, with a choice of English or Spanish text.

    Here is a brief overview of each model.

    Whistler 5000EX

    Whistler 5000EX

    5000EX
    The 5000EX is the base model in the Elite Series. It detects X, K, and Ka bands including Super Wideband Ka, 360 degree detection of all types of laser currently in use, POP™ mode detection, Safety Warning System (SMS) and signals from VG-2 radar detector detectors. It is equipped with Traffic Flow Signal Rejection (TFSR) filter, Field Disturbance Sensor Rejection (FDSR) filter (filters out false signals from collision avoidance systems installed in newer vehicles), 3 city modes, highway mode, and Laser Signature ID (LSID) to measure pulses per second emitted from speed laser guns and identify other sources of laser emissions.

    Features include a bilingual OLED text display, tone alerts, a programmable function button, Alert Priority, Stay Alert®, setting saver and a tutorial mode. Our Price: 69.99.

    Whistler 5025EX

    Whistler 5025EX

    5025EX
    The 5025EX is the mid-range model. It offers all the same detection, filtering and features of the 5000EX. It also has the same bilingual blue OLED text display. It adds Whistler's Real Voice® alerts. The voice alerts are also bilingual, with an option to choose English or Spanish language formats. It's a nice complement to the bilingual text on the display and can be a useful option, especially if Spanish is your native or only language. Our Price: $114.99.

    Whistler 5075EXS

    Whistler 5075EXS

    5075EXS
    The 5075EXS is the top model in the Elite Series. It includes all of the detection, filters and features of the 5025EX and adds a few more, two of which greatly enhance its power and performance. The 5075EXS has an internal GPS built into the unit. The addition of GPS allows the 5075EXS to offer more nice features, such as a speed selectable filter mode, speed selectable Auto Quiet, a compass and a clock.

    The second enhancement is the inclusion of a red light and speed camera database with locations of known traffic enforcement cameras across North America. The database is also updateable, thanks to a USB port on the side of the detector. Our Price: $149.99.

    The chart below compares the features of all three models in the Whistler Elite Series. You can also compare the new models to older, classic, legacy models listed in the 2013 Whistler Radar Detector Comparison Chart. We have other resources as well, such as product and unboxing videos, articles and a Buyer's Guide to help you choose the best radar detector for your needs.

  • Whistler updates its CR Series Radar Detectors with four new models

    In 2013 Whistler introduced their CR series radar and laser detectors. The CR series consolidated the Whistler product line into six distinct models, offering simplified choices and value at very reasonable prices. The CR85 and CR90 were considered the radar detectors with the best value, as both hit that perfect balance of performance to price.

    Recently the company updated the CR detector series with four new models, the CR68, CR73, CR88 and CR93.

    Whistler CR68

    Whistler CR68

    CR68
    The CR68 is the new entry level model in the CR series, replacing the CR65. It detects X, K, and Ka bands with full 360 degree detection of all types of laser, POP™ mode detection, Safety Warning System (SMS) and VG-2 detection. It has several filters to minimize or eliminate false alerts, including Traffic Flow Signal Rejection (TFSR), Field Disturbance Sensor Rejection (FDSR) to filter out signals from collision avoidance systems, 3 city modes, highway mode, Radar Signature ID (RSID) and Laser Signature ID (LSID) to measure pulses per second (PPS) from laser guns.

    The CR68 is equipped with a numeric text display, numeric signal strength indicator, dual alert periscope LEDs, tone alerts, Alert Priority, Stay Alert®, vehicle battery saver and a setting saver. Our Price: 59.99.

    Whistler CR73

    Whistler CR73

    CR73
    The CR73 is essentially the same model as the CR68 but with one added feature. It includes all of the radar and laser detection as its lower end counterpart and has all the filters. In addition to the tone alerts found in the CR68, the CR73 adds Real Voice® alerts. Admittedly, this is nothing new to Whistler. Several older models in the CR line also have voice alerts. However, the CR73 takes that feature and makes it bilingual. The voice alerts are now available in your choice of English or Spanish language. Our Price: 79.99.

    Whistler CR88

    Whistler CR88

    CR88
    The Whistler CR88 is the next model in the line and replaces the CR85. It has all the features and filters of the CR73 and takes them to another level. The CR88 adds four X and K filter modes and four Ka filter modes. It also has Radar Signature ID (RSID) to display the actual frequency of a police radar gun and Laser Signature ID (LSID) display the pulse rate of a laser. It also swaps out the Icon display found on the lower models and replaces it with a blue OLED text display with bilingual readouts in English or Spanish. The CR88 is compatible with the Intellicord® as an added bonus. Our Price: 159.99.

    Whistler CR93

    Whistler CR93

    CR93
    The CR93 is the premium model in this line and replaces the now discontinued CR90. It bundles all of the features found in the CR88 with an internal GPS and includes some serious extras, such as an upgradeable red light and speed camera database, a compass, a clock and a tutorial mode. It has an external audio jack and a USB port. Like the CR88, it is also Intellicord&reg: ready. Our Price: 189.99.

    The chart below compares the features of all four models. For a comparison with older models in the CR Series, the 2013 Whistler Radar Detector Comparison Chart is also available. We also have product videos, articles and a Buyer's Guide.
