  • Updated Whistler CR Series Radar Detectors video

    Whistler retired the original six radar detectors in its CR Series product line and replaced them with four new models, the CR68, CR73, CR88 and CR93. These updated models improve features and performance for even greater value.

    This video hosted by Rick Savoia introduces each of these four detectors in the Whistler CR Series and compares the features of each model. Buy Radar Detectors is an authorized Whistler dealer.


  • 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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
