Radar/Laser Detection: The Whistler XTR-695SE detects the
following bands of radar and laser:
- X Band (10.500-10.550 GHz)
- K Band (24.050-24.250 GHz)
- Ka Superwideband (33.400-36.000 GHz)
- Safety Warning System (SWS)
Front/Rear Laser Detection: The unit is equipped with a
high-gain optical lens on the front panel for increased sensitivity and field of
view for leading-edge laser detection. On the rear is an integrated optical
waveguide for superior detection of laser signals transmitted from behind.
Signal Identifiers: Two signal identifiers, Ka RSID and LSID,
help further identify threats from the Ka band and Laser guns:
- Ka RSID: The Ka Radar Signal Identifier (Ka RSID) helps to
accurately identify valid police radar frequencies and eliminate the
likelihood of a Ka false alert from another source. Ka RSID will educate you
to the common Ka speed radar guns by displaying the nominal police radar
frequencies of 33.8 GHz, 34.0 GHz, 34.3 GHz, 34.7 GHz, and 35.5 GHz. The Ka
alerts that do not fall into these frequencies will be reported only as Ka.
- LSID: The Laser Signal Identifier (LSID) can identify the laser
gun's pulse rate or PPS (pulses per second). Common Laser PPS rates used in
the US are 100, 125, 130, 200, 238, and 380 Hz. The rate of 600 Hz is
sometimes used outside of the US. LSID can also be used to identify other
forms of laser sources such as LACC (Laser Assisted Cruise Control) used in
some high-end vehicles. As the Laser PPS information is displayed, you can
identify and lock out PPS rates that are due to non-police speed laser use.
Once locked out, any new encounter with the same Laser Signature ID will
provide the display information and two quick beeps.
Ka Max Mode: The Ka Max mode provides enhanced Ka
sensitivity for increased protection. This mode can be selected with or without
POP Mode: POP Mode is featured on some newer radar guns
operating on K and Ka bands. When the gun is in POP mode and activated, a brief
burst of energy (less than 1/15th of a second) is transmitted, and the vehicle's
speed is quickly acquired. This unit has a patented POP Mode protection, and
will display an alert as it would a regular radar alert.
Pulse (or Instant-On radar) is more difficult to detect than conventional radar
because if remains off until activated to measure the speed of a targeted
vehicle. When Pulse transmissions are detected, the unit will sound an urgent
3-second audio warning and display "PULSE".
Safety Warning System Alert:
The Whistler XTR-695SE will give you advanced alert of the presence and/or approach
of emergency vehicles, trains, and road hazards from systems equipped with
Safety Alert Traffic Warning System transmitters.
Stay Alert Feature: The Stay Alert Feature is designed to test a
driver's alertness. When engaged, the unit will sound two beeps every 30-60
seconds, and the driver must press specific buttons within 3-5 seconds to show
alertness. If the driver fails to respond properly, an alarm sounds and the
display shows "Get Rest".
Display: The XTR-695SE has a 7-color backlit LCD text
display which provides distinct visual confirmation of signals detected, signal
strength, and indicates engaged modes of operation in 7 colors. The unit can be
set so that each band alert can be shown in a different color or scroll all
colors while alarming.
Visual Alerts: In addition to the digital display, the
unit's Low Profile Alert Periscopes provide an added attention-getting visual
alert. The two extra LEDs flash on and off when the unit alarms to provide a
unique visual alert. You can set the unit to flash for all alarms, remain on or
Integrated Real Voice: The built-in Real Voice is used to announce
band identification, safety warning system messages, and feature selections. The
Real Voice can be turned off, if desired.
The unit will also sound alerts and confirm user settings with an audible tone alert. A distinctly different tone is used for
each type of signal detected, and with radar bands, the tones will repeat faster
as you approach the signal source.
Quiet/Auto Quiet Modes: Quiet Mode cancels audio during an alert and
any new alert within 20 seconds. After 20 seconds of no radar signal detected,
the audio alerts are restored. The Auto Quiet mode reduces the selected audio
level to Level 1 approximately 5 seconds after a radar or safety radar signal is
Self Test: When the unit is first powered on,
the detector goes through a series of self tests to confirm that the speaker and
visual displays are functional.
City/Highway Modes: Whistler's Three Stage City mode is designed to
reduce the annoyance of automatic door openers, intrusion alarms, and other
devices that share frequencies with police radar (generally X-band). You can set
the unit to any of two City modes and a Highway mode. City Mode 1 operates with
a lowered sensitivity for X band, City Mode 2 operates with no X-band detection,
and the Highway mode is the normal mode with full X-band detection.
Filter Modes: At times, a radar detector in another vehicle will
unintentionally emit a frequency that will cause your detector to falsely alarm.
The filter modes provide additional signal processing to minimize the occurrence
of false alarms. Filter modes operate in Highway Mode, and all City Modes.
72-Point Electronic Compass: The
XTR-695SE includes a 72-point electronic compass that automatically
provides an accurate direction reading. In the Combo display mode, the unit will
provide both compass headings as well as detects radar/laser signals. You can
also set the unit to compass mode, and no detection of police radar/laser is
performed. The compass must go through a calibration sequence before use.
Vehicle Battery Monitor: The vehicle's battery voltage can be
displayed by pressing two buttons simultaneously. This allows you to monitor the
battery voltage and take corrective action should the voltage get too low.
Vehicle Battery Saver Mode: The Vehicle Battery Saver mode
automatically shuts off the detector after 3 hours. The timer is reset if the
detector is turned off, unplugged, or any button is pressed before the timer has
expired. If the unit has automatically turned off, it can be turned back on
immediately with the press of any button.
External Speaker Jack: You can
connect an external speaker or earphone if the detector is to be used in an environment with
high ambient noise levels. A 2.5mm sub-mini jack is provided.
Intellicord Ready: Whistler's optional Intellicord power cable allows
some models to control the detector's features such as power on/off, city modes,
dim/dark and quiet/auto quiet modes with a simple press of the button on the
power cable. The XTR-695SE is compatible with the optional Intellicord.
will get optimum performance from the detector if you mount it at a point
approximately in the center of the vehicle, as low as possible on the front
windshield without obstructing the view of the road to the front or rear. The
detector can be mounted using the supplied windshield suction cup mount.
