The Whistler XTR-695 SE supports seven display colors, allowing anyone to find a color that goes well with their vehicle interior. Even more importantly, the XTR695 SE is also the first detector to offer color coded alerts. This means that you can have the display change to a certain color based on the type of alert! Not too concerned about X band alerts? Have the display turn green when you receive one. At a glance you'll know not to panic. Every second counts with a laser alert. Have the display turn red and you'll know to react immediately! The colors supported are: red, purple, light, medium, and dark blue, and light and dark green.
The Radar/Laser Signature ID feature gives a driver additional information to help determine if a threat is real or false.
As you become accustomed to driving in a certain area with a detector, you tend to learn where false alerts will occur and what band(s) of radar police in your area typically use. Normal radar band identification (X, K, Ka) is very useful, as it helps a driver determine if the alert is a real threat or a false alarm. The X and K radar bands are relatively small, and there is little fluctuation in the frequencies that a detector will pick up in these bands. Ka, however, is a monster. There are three common frequencies used by Ka radar guns in the United States, but there are also three other less common Ka frequencies that are used and cannot be ignored by a detector. When the Whistler XTR-695 SE receives a Ka alert, the Signature ID feature allows the detector to display the frequency of the Ka radar gun closest to the detected frequency. This effectively breaks the Ka band down into smaller segments, which can be much more useful when determining the validity of a threat.
The laser Signature ID feature works a little differently. During a laser alert, the XTR-695SE will display the pulse rate (PPS) of the laser being detected. The Whistler XTR-695 SE even allows drivers to lock out individual PPS rates, preventing future alerts for that PPS. This feature is the answer to the prayers of many drivers who suffer through daily laser falses because their route takes them by an airport or other laser source.

The radar doesn't work while theres sun or heat. I place the radar on the windshield like is supposed to, and during night hours work perfect, but during sunny days or when is hot, the screen goes blank or the letters start getting blurry, making difficult to read the warnings. I had the AC on full blast, and the screen still have issues. I had few others radar and never had experience this issue with the others.
Never travel the interstate system without it.
I used this Whistler almost everyday. It gives me a peace of mind while i am driving with it in the city area. Even though I do not switch to City mode, it still did not give me much false alarm on the road. Meanwhile, it had saved me a possible ticket within the first month. The price-function ratio of this Whistler is absolutely fantastic.
Never leave home without one!
This little baby serves its purpose. I drive 4 hours a day thrice a week on the 1-5 and with CA being broke and the CHP going on a rampage- this detector has been invaluable. Most of my drive traverses through the hills/moutains and the Whistler has never failed to detect. Highly recommend.
Performance on this model is great compared to much higher priced items
It is a great product, saved me few tickets. I am very impressed by it.
