Minimum false alarm and good detector for Ka/Laser gun.

The DE-1743 includes Whistler's easy-to-understand Real Voice™ technology, where you hear alerts from a human voice. The DE-1743 is equipped with an easy to read icon based display. The Whistler 1743 also features 3 city modes, and a Stay Alert feature.

A real human voice is used to describe the band detected so that you don't have to look away from the road. The Whistler DE-1743 responds to all types of radar currently in use by police, and provides 360 degree detection of all types of laser guns laser. The Whistler DE-1743 is immune to the VG-2 detector, and provides alerts when VG-2 is in use. Basic support is included for SWS alerts as well. A signal strength indicator is also provided for radar bands.

Whistler DE-1743 Features :

360° Protection against all types of Laser
Unlike all of the other bands, which are wide bands, radar guns using laser technology shoot a narrow, focused beam of light to determine vehicle speed. There are several types of laser guns currently in use by police. A few of these are listed below:
- Pro Laser™ I, II and III
- LTI 20-20
- Ultra Lyte
- Stalker LZ-1
- Laser Atlanta L-1

X, K, Ka, and Super Wideband Ka Detection
X, K, and Ka Superwide are the radar bands that are used by police radar guns. X band was the first band used for by radar guns, but is now the least used. All radar detectors that we carry detect all 3 of these bands.

Safety Warning System (SWS™) Alert
The Safety Warning System™ (SWS™) is an alert band that is emitted by many highway crews and emergency vehicles. Having a radar detector that monitors for this band could alert you to potential road or driving hazards. Some models with voice alerts or alpha-numeric displays have the ability to speak or display a description of the specific SWS™ warning for which you are being alerted. For example, if the alert was "Road work ahead" you would hear that message spoken if your unit supports voice alerts, and you would see that message if your unit has an alpha-numeric display.

VG-2 Undetectable
VG-2 is a technology that police use to detect radar detectors. This is primarily used in states where radar detectors are illegal. Radar detectors that have the VG-2 Stealth feature can make themselves invisible to this detection.

VG-2 Alert
VG-2 is a technology that police use to detect radar detectors. This is primarily used in states where radar detectors are illegal. Radar detectors that have the VG-2 Stealth feature can make themselves invisible to this detection.

Instant-On (Pulse) Detection
Most radar guns are constantly transmitting a signal that can be detected by a radar detector. Some radar guns have an "Instant-On" or "Pulse" feature. These radar guns will not transmit a signal that can be detected until the police officer releases the radar, which he usually will only do when his target is within range.

Icon Display
LED displays use lights to indicate alerts. Typically, there will be a light or combination of lights to represent each band. It is marked on the display which lights refer to which band.
A more advanced form of the LED display uses icons in front of lights. This usually makes it easier to understand the alert at a glance.

Integrated Real Voice
Voice Alerts allow your radar detector to actually talk to you. You will hear the alert spoken in plain English. This allows you to keep your eyes on the road, instead of having to look at the display or memorize a certain tone. Some models extend the voice alerts to cover SWS alerts. For example, you would hear "ROAD WORK AHEAD" instead of having to read the display or memorize a type of tone.

Stay Alert Features
The Stay Alert Feature is designed to test a driver’s alertness. Once activated, the radar detector will beep every 30-60 seconds. To show alertness, the driver must press a button within 5 seconds of this beep. If a button is not pressed, an alarm sounds.

Teach/Tutorial Mode
Tutorial mode simulates the alerts for each type of signal. This allows you to get familiar with the every way that your radar detector can alert you.

Auto And Manual Muting
Auto muting allows you to tell the radar detector to automatically mute or lower the volume after the first few seconds of beeping. Manual muting usually means that there is a Mute or a Quiet button on the unit that will silence the current alert when pressed.

3 City Modes and Highway Mode
City mode will reduce the number of false alarms that you will receive. There are some differences in the ways that each manufacturer implements City mode. In some cases, city mode will filter out all X band signals detected. Other units will still beep when a signal is detected, but will automatically enter Quiet mode after one or two beeps if the signal is weak.
Highway mode does not filter out any band, or automatically silence weak signals.

Selectable Vehicle Battery Saver
This feature will automatically turn off the radar detector after a set period of time. This prevents your radar detector from draining your battery if you forget to turn it off. In the case of cordless radar detectors, it prevents draining of it's own batteries.

Setting Saver
Memory retention is available on almost all models. This means that if the unit is turned off or if it loses power, it will remember any of your custom settings.

Volume Control
Adjusts the loudness of the audio alerts on the unit.

Self Test
During a self test, a unit will typically cycle through the beep for each band, and activate each light or icon on the display. For alpha numeric models, the most common messages are usually flashed on the display during the self test.

One Year Manufacturer Warranty
This is the length of the warranty provided by the manufacturer.

Included with the Whistler DE-1743 :

- Windshield Bracket
- Power Cord
- Owners Manual


Junk, all the way around
by radarguyus,Jan 16 '04

Pros: Cheap, lets you know when burger king is near
Cons: Does not differentiate between K and Ka bands, poor Ka sensitivity

I ran into this unit in a Wal- Mart on closeout. I am somewhat of a radar detector guru, and decided to give this a run against my Whistler. (I also have an Escort 8500 which puts both of these units to shame, but the Cobra vs Escort would be an unfair comparison). What a piece of crap. This unit (Cobra) does not differentiate between K and Ka band, so my Whistler was used for this task. The Cobra picked up K band from about half a mile away, but did not respond on Ka band until I was about 800 feet from the offending radar gun. The Whistler got about .7 mile on K and Ka bands, at the very same trap that the Cobra got 800 feet on. As mentioned earlier, the Escort 8500 smashed both of these units, and Whistler killed Cobra. If you are a serious speeder, go with the Escort. If you want to know when your neighbor is using a microwave, get the Cobra.

Bel (high end radar detector, price range from RM 1000 – RM 6000)
Escort (high end radar detector, price range from RM 1000 – RM 2500)
Whister (low cost radar detector, price range from RM 400 – RM 900)
Cobra (low cost radar detector, price range from RM400 – RM 900)
