Whistler XTR-550 radar detector features a super bright icon display.
Compact and easy to mount on your windshield.
The XTR-140 also features Whistler’s new attention grabbing feature, the dual LED alert periscope. Two blue LED’s sit atop the XTR-140 and flash when you receive an alert, helping to grab your attention.
The Whistler XTR-140 includes an Alert Priority feature, which makes sure the most important alert is displayed if multiple alerts are detected. A battery saver option turns off your detector automatically if you forget.
Integrated Real Voice<br When selected, Real Voice will be used to articulate the following:
- Band Identification
- Safety Warning System messages
- Feature Selection
Note: In certain cases the voice message does not replicate the text message.
Laser Audio / Visual Alerts
When a laser signal is detected, the display indicates alert by illuminating the “V/L” and scrolling the signal strength indicators from right to left or display indicates an �L� on the display. The audio alert is continuous for a minimum of 3 seconds.
Dual LED Alert Periscope
Whistler�s new Dual LED Alert Periscope provides an additional attention getting visual alert. The two extra LED�s flash on and off when the unit alarms to provide a unique visual alert. This alert can be programmed, through the Option Select Mode to: 1. flash for all alarms, 2. remain on, or 3. turn LEDs off completely.
When a VG-2 signal is detected, the VG-2 is sounded and the display flashes �VG-2�. After 3 seconds the audio is canceled and the display no longer flashes. This cycle is repeated if the VG-2 signal is again detected. During the period a VG-2 signal is detected, a radar signal cannot be detected. However, because the VG-2 alert has confirmed that a patrol car is nearby, you are already aware of the potential for speed monitoring and can adjust your speed accordingly. Laser detection is not affected while a VG-2 signal is detected.
City vs. Highway Mode
Highway mode provides full audio and visual warning of laser/radar systems while maintaining full sensitivity. Highway mode is the default setting of all Whistler’s 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 Mode and Auto Quiet Mode
Quiet Mode cancels audio during an alert and any new alert within 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, approximately 2 beeps are provided on any new alert and unit then remains quiet. Auto Quiet reduces the selected audio level to level (1) approximately 5 seconds after a radar or safety radar signal is detected. The alert for any new signal within 20 seconds will resume at level (1). Auto Quiet does not affect VG-2 or laser alerts.
