Summary: Good design. Identifies nearly all radars! One disadvantage. Too bulky (awkward to fix it on the windshield. Connecting cable is very long, which is very convenient. Sounds regulated (volume). Powered by 180 ". Rode with him for 4,000 km. Only once paid a fine for speeding!
Summary: I was a bit skeptical about this detector after reading the single bad Amazon review. There is also not much on the web about this specific model, although there are some good reviews about the Pro 73 and 1793SE (similar models) to be found using Google. I finally contacted Whistler directly and discovered that there are no differences between the 58 and 73 in terms of their antenna chassis or ability to detect radar/laser.
It's great for the price, if on a budget this is your product

Summary: Easy to use and install. It's great for the price. It covers all the necessary bands, has alert modes that will quiet down once you are alerted to prevent annoying sounds. But it's not top of the line. Bands change sometimes as if it identify it wrongly. If you don't have a radar and want to get a reliable one on a budget this is perfect for you. If you are looking for top on the line, looks awesome, and 100%top notch performance then should consider another one.
Summary: The Whistler Pro 58 radar detector is a high end model from Whistler's high performance Professional Series. This model detects the new POP mode feature of some radar guns, and incorporates a high gain optical lens for increased laser sensitivity. The Whistler Pro 58 also features 3 City modes for a reduction in false alerts. An Alert Priority feature makes sure the most important alert is displayed if multiple alerts are detected.
