It delivers 360 degrees of complete perimeter protection, detecting signals from the front, sides, and rear. The icon display provides distinct visual symbols of alerts detected and engaged modes, while the tone alerts provide audible alerts for bands received. Alert periscopes provide an additional visual alert by displaying LED’s on top of the unit. Features VG-2 detection, vehicle battery saver that shuts off the radar detector when not in use, and alert priority, as well as 3 city modes that reduce the annoyance of false alerts caused by common X-band radar sources such as security systems or door openers. Included with the radar detector is a power cord, windshield bracket kit, a user guide, and a limited 1 year manufacturer warranty.Whistler’s XTR-145 is an affordable, full-featured laser/radar detector. With total band protection from radar signals, 360-degree laser detection, Whistler’s patented VG-2 cloaking technology, and plenty more, you’ll get an effective detector that doesn’t break the bank.

Total Band Protection
Provides Complete Band Coverage of all Laser, Radar (X, K, and Ka bands), VG-2, and Safety Radar bands.

Icon Display
The XTR-145’s bright icon display offers easy-to-read display to indicate power, city mode, radar band identification, and signal strength.

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 Cloaking
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.

Vehicle Battery Saver Mode
The Vehicle Battery Saver Mode automatically shuts off your detector within 3 hours if you forget to turn it off. The timer is reset if the detector is turned off, unplugged or any button is pressed before the 6 hours have expired. The detector will alert you with an audible and visual warning before it shuts off.

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 Periscopes
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.

    Lots of stupid reviews I give 5 stars for the fact price/benefit. It’s not the best one otherwise it wouldn’t cost $40, but so far it has been way better than my cobra vedetta 500 that costs $99 and goes off every second no matter if it is in the city max mode or hwy. I have read some comments here and I can’t believe how stupid ppl are ( I actually can), you can’t buy a $40 and expect it to be similar to a $500 escort. And let me teach you guys few things, not all the police cars are equipped with radar, even the…
