wouldn't buy again since it relies on the AA batteries even plugged in

  • Summary: This detector has one major design flaw. It takes 4 AA batteries in order to work when plugged in to your cigarette lighter outlet. Without good batteries installed it won't work.

Best detector that i ever had.

  • Summary: This radar was one of the best things that i bought for my car in a long time. I bought this because i have allways wanted a cordless detector but couldn't never afford it until now. I like this product because it's very accurate with resonding. There's no other detector to compare this one to, because this unit is better then all the detectors that i ever had and i had alot of detectors.

wireless radar detector

  • Summary: I like the convience of not having wires coming down from the dash. With the contour of the dash it was hard keeping in in place with the wires. It also makes it nice to take it down when I park it so it isn't tempting or distracting from the looks of the car

Whistler DE-1788 Radar Detector

25 February 2009
  • Summary: I have had one of these before and this is why I purchased another one. The range that this detector picked up the signal was amazing. Example: I was following a trans am that was going 15mph under the speed limit on a winding road, I tried to pass him at one section of the road and when I tried he sped up to prevent me from passing. He then slowed down to 20mph under the speed limit.

  • Summary: I was a bit skeptical about a wireless radar device in the $100 price range, but trusted the quality of the Whistler brand based on my prior satisfactory experience. I owned other Whistler detectors for years and used them for thousands of miles with excellent results; i.e., no speeding tickets although I have a bit of a led foot when conditions are favorable. This Whistler wireless radar didn't let me down either.
