Whistler XTR-538 Laser-Radar Detector
The Whistler XTR-538 Laser Radar Detector has a compact & discreet design that provides a new level of operating convenience. Its Red OLED Text Display shows alerts detected, engaged modes & digital signal strength in easy-to-read text format (i.e. HIGHWAY or Ka9). Real Voice Alerts & Selectable Tone Alerts allow you to keep your eyes on the road, while Alert Periscope LED's on top of the unit provide bright red visual alerts. 360-degree MAXX Coverage & Total Band Protection ensure maximum protection in the front, sides, and rear of your vehicle. This unit detects VG-2 & POP Mode (brief bursts of radar), laser & radar signals including X & K band - SuperWideBand Ka - Laser (the only bands that are used for speed measurement).
Selectable Bands allow specific bands to be turned on or off. A High Gain Lens provides increased field of view which means better range. It has 3 different modes, including City & Highway as well as 2 additional filter modes to reduce false alerts. Additional competitive features include: a Setting Saver that saves your personalized settings so you don't have to re-enter them, Alert Priority, a Quiet/Auto Quiet feature, Dimmer, Safety Warning System that keeps you informed of highway safety where transmitters are located, & Stay Alert that tests your alertness on long trips. The XTR-538 is battery operated with rechargeable NiMH batteries that provide hours of use without the need for a power cord. Its Internal Battery Charger recharges the NiMH batteries in the unit when plugged into a functioning 12V socket. It also comes complete with a Windshield Bracket Kit, Power Cord & Manual for quick & easy setup.
Additional Information: Laser radar detectors are legal for passenger vehicles in every state except Virginia and Washington, D.C. Radar receivers are prohibited in commercial vehicles over 10,000 lbs. Whistler laser radar detectors receive laser guns that operate at a laser wavelength of 905+/50nm. Whistler detectors receive the following radar frequencies: 10.500 10.550 GHz - X Band; 24.050 24.250 GHz - K Band; 33.400 36.000 GHz - SuperWideBand Ka. This includes the POP™ instant-on feature, which operates within the K and Ka bands. POP™ is a trademark of MPH Industries.
XTR-538 Laser Radar Detector Features
- Total Band Protection
Provides Complete Band Coverage of all Laser, Radar (X, K, and Ka bands), VG-2, and Safety Radar bands.
- Red OLED Text Display
The XTR-538's display provides better contrast, brightness and color. Shows alerts detected, engaged modes and digital signal strength in text format HIGHWAY or Ka9.
- REAL VOICE® ALERTS provides verbal alerts for modes selected and bands received
- 360 Degree Protection
Units with 360 protection detect signals from all radar, laser, VG-2 and safety radar systems wherever they come from; front, rear or from the side.
- VG-2 Detection
The VG-2, also known as a "radar detector detector," is a special receiver used by police to detect signals radiated by a radar detector. Thanks to Whistler's patented VG-2 cloaking technology, your detector will remain invisible to VG-2 detection.
- 3 City Modes/Highway Mode
Highway mode provides full audio and visual warning of laser/radar systems while maintaining full sensitivity, and is the default setting of Whistler laser/radar detectors. City mode helps reduce the annoyance of automatic door openers and burglar alarm alerts by providing an initial alert (same distance as Highway Mode) then remaining quiet unless the signal strength becomes very strong. When the signal increases the unit will alert briefly to notify you of the change in signal strength.
- Quiet/Auto Quiet Modes
Pressing QUIET before a signal is detected engages Auto Quiet Mode, which automatically reduces the audio level after the initial warning to a low audio level setting. Pressing QUIET during a radar/laser encounter silences audio alerts, while allowing visual alerts to keep you informed.
- Battery Operated
Rechargeable NiMH batteries provide hours of use without the need for a power cord. Its Internal Battery Charger recharges the NiMH batteries in the unit when plugged into a functioning 12V socket.
- Alert Priority
When two or more signals are received at the same time, the alert priority is: Laser, VG-2, Speed Radar, Safety Radar.
Example: If X band is alerting, then suddenly a VG-2 signal is detected, the VG-2 warning will override the X band alert. Twin Alert
Whistler'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 in bright red.
Twin Alert Periscopes
Note: This unit features Red LED Lights
Compact & lightweight at just 4.9" x 3.15" x 1.46" and weighing only ?8.96? ounces.
