Whistler CR97 – Maximum Performance Radar Laser MultaRadar Detector/w GPS, Voice Alerts

We rate the CR97 as the best valued-price GPS enabled detector on the market and the best in the under $250 price category. The unit now offers performance on par with some detectors costing twice as much. The CR97 offers 360-degree protection and detects X, K, and Ka radar signals and excellent sensitivity to police laser. Radar Detection Range The CR97 has noticeably better range and performance than all previous models, and is now ranked in the 4-star category. This level of performance and quickness to react to I/O police radar makes this detector excellent with instant on encounters. ALL NEW FDSR ### Feature Whistler now offers a feature that can’t be found anywhere else, the ability to detect and alert to FMCW (frequency modulated continuous waveform) radar that other detectors filter out. When the FDSR ### or FDSr ### feature is enabled, the CR97 will not only alert to K-band, but also with a continuously changing series of numbers that relate to the nature of the modulation used. Especially when coupled with the Verilight GPS database, you will be notified that you are approaching an active “speed on green” photo enforced intersection, such as one monitored by the TraffiStar S391. CAS Signal Rejection You can fine tune the degree of signal rejection with XK and Ka filters which add additional processing times prior to alerting to vehicles’ collision avoidance systems. With a K filter setting of 4, the CR97 does especially well at filtering out K-band CAS systems from Chevrolet, Honda, and Acura that can wreak havoc with other detectors. Photo Enforcement Protection with Builtin GPS Automated photo enforcement cameras and speed traps are everywhere today! To combat these Whistler has equipped the CR97 with GPS technology and their photo enforcement database, called Verilight, will alert as you approach one of these locations. Available exclusively from RadarBusters/PowerSports US

    It is sensitive The Whistler is more sensitive than my now dead Passport, it detects singals MUCH farther out. This is important here in the Soviet Republic of California because the Highway Patrol seems to run their radar at low power. If you work out the signal strength and detection range, you will find that lowering the power of the radar has almost no impact on the speed measuring range, but a significant impact on the threat detection range. 1/r^4 vs. 1/r^2.The unit is easy to use; just…

    The manual sucks, but the detector does a great job weeding out false alerts if configured correctly First of all, I don’t generally go more than about 5-8 mph over the posted speed…that being said, the only speeding tickets I’ve ever gotten were when I simply was cruising along on a nice day and drifted too far above the posted speed…which of course ruined said perfectly nice day. It is for that reason I use a detector. I do not condone intentional speeding…most posted speed limits are there for everyones safety. Some however are simply there as a speed trap…whether a legal defense or…
