Whistler brand (Whistler Group since 1971) is the best low cost radar detector if you compare to others brand (Cobra, PNI).
Minimum false alarm and good detector for Ka/Laser gun.
The Whistler XTR-255 is equipped with a very easy to read color icon display, and provides three city modes for improved filtering. The XTR-255 also has Whistler's popular Dual Alert Display feature. Bright blue LED's on each side of the display will flash during an alert in addition to the typical display and the periscope LED's.
The XTR-255 will ensure that you never miss a radar alert! In addition to the additional LEDs provided by the Dual Alert Display, the Whistler 255 also features another great feature found only on Whistler radar detectors, the dual LED alert periscope. Two blue LED's sit atop the XTR-255 and flash when you receive an alert, helping to grab your attention.
The Whistler XTR-255's three city modes allows you to better filter out false alerts. An Alert Priority feature makes sure the most important alert is displayed if multiple alerts are detected. Other features include a battery saver, and auto quiet mode.
Whistler XTR-255 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.
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 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.
Super Bright 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.
Dual Blue Alert Periscope LED's
The LED Alert Periscope feature is unique to some Whistler detectors. Detectors supporting this feature have a LED light on the top of the detector. During an alert, this light will flash. The idea is that this flashing LED will grab the drivers attention more quickly than a typical change in the radar detector's display.
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.
Blue Numeric 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.
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.
Audio Alert Only Mode
In this mode, the visual alert and signal strength indicator are disabled and the display panel will dim. Be sure not to turn off or mute the volume when in audio only mode!
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.
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.
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.
Adjusts the loudness of the audio alerts on the unit.
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.
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-255 :
- Windshield Mounting Bracket

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.
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.
