The Whistler DE-1776 radar detector is a high performance detector at a great price. This model, with it's sleek, black design and intense, blue text display will look great in any vehicle. The DE-1776 will detect the new POP mode radar. This model also povides a "Dual Alert Display" feature. With this feature enabled, bright blue LED's on each side of the display will flash when an alert is detected, in addition to the text display message. These added LED's could ensure that you don't miss an alert! The DE-1776 is also compatible with Whistler's new Intelli-Cord power cord.

The Whistler DE-1776 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-1776 is immune to the VG-2 detector, and provides alerts when VG-2 is in use. The alpha-numeric display allows for full support of SWS alerts, including detailed information messages.

Whistler DE-1776 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.

Detects POP Mode
POP mode is a feature of the Bee III radar gun produced by MPH Industries. POP mode will measure the speed of a vehicle in around a tenth of a second and is not detectable by many radar detectors.
The good news is that speed readings taken while in POP mode are not always accurate and should not hold up in court. MPH Industries is aware that tickets issued in POP mode would not hold up, and does not all speed measurements taken in this mode to be locked into the gun. The Bee III manual itself advises that tickets should not be issued based on readings taken in this mode.
Even with the problems with POP mode, there are thousands of these radar guns in use at this time. Because of this, it is advisable that you purchase a detector that can identify the POP mode of the Bee III.

Intense Blue Alpha-numeric Text Display
An alpha-numeric text display is common on mid range and high end radar detectors. An alpha-numeric display is capable of displaying any combination of letters and numbers, and even some shapes. This type of display is typically very easy to read and understand.
With an alpha-numeric display it is common to see the band spelled out on the left side with the rest of the display turning into a graph indicating the strength of the signal. This is superior to detectors with an LED or Icon display, which use a different LED light or an icon to represent each band.
Some higher end models are capable of displaying 60 or more detailed text messages describing Safety Warning System (SWS) Alerts. For example, you would actually see "ROAD WORK AHEAD" or "EMERGENCY VEHICLE" printed on the display instead of having a generic SWS tone.

Signal Strength Indicator
"Signal Strength" refers to how close the radar is to the radar detector. Most models have a way of indicating the signal strength. Basic units with only LED displays indicate the signal strength by how rapidly the LED flashes. Some models display a number between 1 and 9. Others have icons on the display to indicate the strength. On models with alpha-numeric displays, signal strength is generally represented by an on-screen bar graph.

Dual Alert Display
The Dual Alert Display feature provides added attention getting visual alert to the display. Extra LED's in the display area flash on and off when the unit alarms to provide a unique visual alert.
This feature is not to be confused with the multiple threat alert feature. The Dual Alert Display feature does not indicate that multiple bands have been detected.

Bright/Dim/Dark Display Settings
This feature allows you to control the brightness of the display.

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-1776 :

- 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)
