Ignore the bright LED and enjoy the deal and quality Whistler.
4 January 2014
Summary: I replaced an older Whistler with this unit as the volume went out on the old one. This unit works much the same way as the older unit but it is alot louder. The only negative I have about this unit is that the LED is a little too bright and it did take some getting used to. Now I pay little attention to the light and I have been using the new Whistler for over a month. For the price, I would recommend this radar detector.
Summary: It has been about 7 years using the same detector. I decided to upgrade to a newer product. It was not expensive, and had the features I wanted. It may not be the best out there, but it does the job for me. I bought it about 3 months ago, and it already has helped me stay out of trouble.
Summary: Love this radar detector. I had an old Whistler that had similar features. I kept patching it together for many years until it finally gave up the ship. (Worked WELL past when I thought it would.) I replaced it with the XTR-335 and absolutely love it. I was worried that I might not like it as well as my old one but I think it's even better. The voice alerts were the biggest reason I purchased this model. Love it, love it, love it!!!
Summary: And I think that Whistler the best trap warning. Model Whistler XTR-335 I liked it. Many say that the Whistler Pro Series is better, but I went and so and so and the difference between them I did not notice, and is Whistler XTR-335 is still cheaper. He responds to all radars and false positives do not. In this I agree with previous opinions. In short I am satisfied.
Summary: The Whistler XTR-335 radar detector has an easy to read display and also uses Whistler's Real Voice™ technology. The XTR-335 detects POP mode radar, and features 3 city filtering modes, which allows you to adjust your tolerance false alerts. The XTR-335 also features Whistler's dual LED alert periscope. Two blue LED's sit atop the XTR-330 and flash when you receive an alert, helping to grab your attention.
