Radar detector manufacturers tend to update the software on their detectors several times per year. The changes made by these software updates vary from tweaks in filtering to new feature additions. We buy in smaller quantities, so we typically get fresh inventory once or twice per month. This means you never get older, dated units when you buy from us!

The Whistler Pro 78 offers performance exceeding that of any previous Whistler detector! The Pro 78 is Whistler's flagship "Professional Series" model, and contains Whistler's new, re-engineered antenna that offers considerably improved Ka sensitivity and false alert filtering over previous Whistler models.

The Pro 78 also offers all of the features you would expect in a high performance detector. It will detect POP mode radar and provides Whistler's Real Voice™ alerts. The Pro78 provides an intense blue text display with and auto-dim feature, which makes the Pro 78 easy to read both day and night. Designed with the professional driver in mind, the Pro 78 includes a hardwire kit, non-skid dash pad, and three year warranty.

The Whistler Pro 78 also delivers several features that are new to Whistler. These are: "periscope" blue alert LEDs on the top of the unit, and true VG-2 immunity. Other Whistler detectors employ "VG-2 cloaking", in which the detector shuts itself down when it detects the VG-2.

  1. Bad Speakers review by Hags on 10/1/2011

    I bought two of these in 2009 and both of the speakers have been replaced and I have to replace another one again. NOT DURABLE at all. Other people are having the same problems.

  2. Great value for the price! review by Ron on 11/10/2010

    Great sensitivity Highly recommended Been working great for over 2 years now...

  3. whistler 78pro review by vschukin on 11/8/2010

    very good item

  4. Great Radar Detector! review by Nutopia on 11/8/2010

    I have a Whistler detector in each of my cars. Like this one better than the previous model I ordered for the visual features on this one. Good sensitivity. I commute and this has helped me out often. Whistler lives up to the reviews I read and based my purchase on.

  5. Best value for money detector review by Always on the go KOB on 11/8/2010

    Very reliable unit that always provides true readings.

  6. Great Product at a Great Price! review by Yosemite360 on 11/8/2010

    We travel several times a year out-of-state towing a motorcycle trailer. Trips average 1000 miles. This detector saves me at least 3 speeding tickets every trip. Average warning time is about 1/2 mile for Hiway Patrol traps in N. California. It does give false alerts but that's better than being less sensitive and missing one.

  7. My Cobra was better review by XXXXX on 11/8/2010

    Iuse this as a radar detector. it has way toomany false signal alerts and the range is poor compared to my Cobra

  8. About what I expected for the price. review by Rick on 11/8/2010

    Blue flashing warning lights are so bright that I wonder if I might get a ticket for them

  9. Pretty good. review by RicknATL on 11/8/2010

    Pretty good.

  10. Can I trust this thing? review by Eric on 11/8/2010

    This thing just goes off when nothing is present. Then when I drive by legitimate issues...nothing. What gives? I don't trust this thing at all. If I hadn't had it so long, I would return it without hesitation.
