The Whistler XTR-425 radar detector combines an incredible set of features with the customization of the Whistler XTR series. The XTR-425's feature set includes: POP mode radar detection, programmable text display, 3 city modes, selectable bands and European Ku band detection. The text alerts of the XTR-425 are completely customizable, and this model includes three different trim rings: metallic red, silver, and white.

The Whistler XTR-425 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 425 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.

Feeling creative? The Whistler XTR-425 offers programmable text alerts! This means that the XTR-425 will allow you to program the text that is shown on the display during an alert.

The Whistler XTR-425 is designed to allow for interchangeable "trim rings" on the top of the detector. This allows you to customize the look of your detector. The XTR-425 includes 3 trim rings: metallic red, silver, and white.

The Whistler XTR-425 is compatible with Whistler's optional Intelli-Cord Power Cable (Sold Separately). The Intelli-Cord provides a programmable button on the base of the power cord to which you can assign your choice of two features. You can have the IntelliCord button control any two of the following: Power On/Off, City Modes, Dim/Dark, and Quiet/Auto Quiet. A short button press activates the first feature, a long press activates the second!

Whistler XTR-425 Features :

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.

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
All radar detectors that we carry will detect every type of laser.

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.

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.

Blue Backlit 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.

Programmable Text Display Messages
Radar detectors supporting a programmable display will allow you to set your own custom messages that are shown during alerts instead of the built-in messages. For example, during a Ka alert you may be able to program the display to show a "SLOW DOWN" message instead of "KA BAND".

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.

Ku Band Detection
The Ku band is a band of radar that is used by police in a few European countries. This band is not used at all in the United States or Canada.
The use of Ku band is rare, even in Europe. We do, however, recommend that you check with local law enforcement to see if Ku band is used in your area before purchasing a radar detector without this feature for use in Europe.

Includes Red, Silver, and White Trim Rings
Interchangeable faceplates allow you to change the general color of your radar detector. You can simply snap on a new face plate to make your detector more closely resemble the interior of your car!

Selectable Bands
Some radar detectors have the ability to disable one or more bands. This is most commonly seen with the X band, which is rarely used by police and is the most common band for false alarms.

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.

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.

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

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.

Stay Alert Feature
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.
WARNING!!! Stay Alert is NOT intended as a substitute for adequate rest. You should NOT operate a vehicle if you are drowsy. During extended periods of vehicle operation, you should take frequent breaks. Improper reliance on the Stay Alert feature may result in vehicle damage, personal injury or death. NEVER OPERATE A VEHICLE IF YOU ARE DROWSY.

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.

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.

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

Included with the Whistler XTR-425 :

- Windshield Bracket
- Straight Power Cord
- Owners Manual


International Whistler Sales

Whistler just issued a warning to customers outside of the US who are looking to buy a Whistler detector: BEWARE. Some internet searches apparently turn up products that claim to be Whistler radar detectors, but in fact are not.

International customers: always be sure that the Whistler products that you buy are authentic!


How To Use Your Radar Detector

A radar detector is a great tool, but it could hurt you more than help if you don't know how to use it properly. This post will attempt to explain how you can get the most benefit from your radar detector. It will teach you what you can expect from your radar detector, and what you cannot.

What Radar Detectors Do

Many people buy a radar detector and simply assume that they now have a license to speed. A few tickets later, these same people will discard the detector as "worthless". It is important to know what a radar detector is, and in what situations you can trust it, and when you must be cautious.

A radar detector will alert you when it senses certain frequencies of signals. The frequencies that they look for are frequencies that are commonly used by radar guns (the devices used by police to capture the speed of vehicles). These products do not detect police officers or police cars. They only detect the signals that are emitted by devices that police officers sometimes use.

When To Trust Your Radar Detector

The perfect situation for a radar detector is when you are driving in traffic, with other cars in front of and behind you. Fortunately, this is a very common scenario and is almost always the case when you are driving on an interstate or a highway during daylight hours. In this scenario, a police officer who is looking for speeders would set off your radar detector when his radar gun captured the speed of a driver in front of or behind you. This would usually give you plenty of time to slow down.

When To Be More Cautious

If you are driving in an area where there isn't much traffic, or if you are the only vehicle within sight, you should exercise more caution. In this scenario, a radar detector is not as valuable. A police officer using an instant-on radar gun could get your speed and your radar detector would have little time to warn you. When exceeding the speed limit in lite traffic, you should always keep an eye out for law enforcement officers and slow down around curves or hills. You also shouldn't speed excessively -- when you spot a police officer you will need to get your speed in check quickly.

The Laser Threat

While police radar is by far the biggest threat, laser usage by police is growing rapidly. Laser works differently than police radar, and laser detection is a weak point for radar detectors. Police laser is not used in all areas, so it is important that you find out if laser is used where you commonly drive. If laser is a threat in your area, you should arm yourself with a laser defense product, such as a laser jammer or Laser Veil, in addition to your radar detector.

Be Smart!

If you are expecting to plug in your radar detector and automatically be immune to tickets, then you are in for trouble. However, if you take the time to learn what you radar detector is actually doing, and combine that with smart, situational driving, you will be successful at avoiding speeding tickets.
