INSTALLATION

Mounting Guidelines

Mount the unit as low as possible near the center of the windshield.

Do not mount your unit behind wipers, ornaments, mirrored sunscreens, etc. These obstructions have metal surfaces which can affect radar and laser signals

and reduce critical warning time. (Regular tinted glass does not affect reception.)

Some windshields have an Instaclearor Electricleartype coating, which affect radar signals. Consult your dealer or the owner’s manual supplied with your vehicle to determine if your windshield has this coating.

Avoid placing unit in direct contact with windshield.

To reduce the possibility of theft, conceal your unit when not in use.

Windshield Mounting

Install the two suction cups and rubber bumper onto the bracket by fitting them into their holes.

Press the suction cups onto the windshield at the location you have chosen. IMPORTANT: Some newer cars have a plastic safety coating on the inside of the windshield. The windshield bracket may leave permanent marks on this type of surface. To find out if your vehicle has this type of windshield, check the owner’s manual or ask your dealer. We recommend that you do not leave the suction cup bracket on the window in direct sunlight. If the detector is removed, this may cause blistering of the dash in some vehicles.

Slide the detector onto the bracket until it locks into place.

If necessary, the unit may be leveled by bending the windshield bracket. Press the bracket release button and remove the detector before bending.

7

OPERATION

Feature Engaged Confirmation

Each time a button is pressed one beep confirms feature “on”, two beeps confirm feature “off”.

Quiet Mode

The QUIET Button accesses one of two muting options.

Note: 1734 will go to volume level 1 instead of clicking.

Auto Quiet Mode

Pressing QUIET before a radar signal is detected provides an alternate alert pattern, consisting of four beeps (indicating X, K, Ka or Safety Radar) followed by clicking. The clicking will continue for as long as the detected signal is present or any new signal is detected within 20 seconds, becoming more rapid as the strength of the signal increases.

If Auto Quiet is engaged, pressing QUIET while the unit is alarming will cancel the beeps or clicking.

Pressing QUIET a second time when the unit is not alarming will cancel Auto Quiet mode and restore the continuous audio alert pattern.

Vehicle Battery Saver Mode

The Vehicle Battery Saver Mode automatically shuts off your detector after 6 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 time has expired. The detector will alert you with an audible and visual warning before it shuts off.

INSTALLATION

Visor Mounting (Optional Accessory)

Slide the visor bracket into the bracket mounting slot.

Clip the visor bracket onto the visor making sure it is relatively level and has a clear view of the road.

Power Connection

Plug the small end of the power cord into the unit’s power jack.

Plug the large end into the vehicle’s cigarette lighter.

Fuse Replacement

The lighter socket plug is equipped with a replaceable 2 amp 3AG fuse located behind the silver tip. To replace the fuse, carefully unscrew the tip of the plug.

IMPORTANT: Unscrew slowly. The tip contains a spring which may fly out when disassembling.

Insert the new fuse with the spring and screw on the tip.

With use, screw cap on plug may loosen. Retighten occasionally.

Unscrew the tip of the lighter socket plug carefully when replacing the 2 amp fuse.

LASER/RADAR ALERTS

During this warning you can momentarily reset the unit by pressing any button. This will reset the timer.

If the unit has automatically turned itself off, press any button to turn the unit back on.

City Mode

Whistler’s City Mode is designed to reduce the annoyance of automatic door openers, intrusion alarms and other devices which share frequencies with police radar.

Press City to engage City.

Press City a second time cancels City Mode.

In City Mode, weak speed/safety radar signals give an initial alarm of two beeps, and then the unit remains quiet unless the signal strength increases, two additional beeps are provided.

Note: 1734 has 3 city modes

City/City 1/City 2 Mode

Whistler’s Three Stage City Mode is designed to reduce the annoyance of automatic door openers, intrusion alarms and other devices which share frequencies with police radar.

Press City to cancel Highway mode and engage City. Display will switch from “H” to “C”.

Pressing City a second time engages City 1.

Pressing City a third time engages City 2.

Note: After 3 seconds, l or ll City Mode indicator turns off.

• Pressing City a fourth time returns to Highway mode.

LASER/RADAR ALERTS

City Mode (cont.)

In City Mode, weak speed/safety radar signals give an initial alarm of two beeps, and then the unit remains quiet unless the signal becomes very strong. When the signal strength increases, two additional beeps are provided. In City 1 Mode, only the X band sensitivity is lowered. In City 2 Mode, X- band is not detected.

CAUTION: Some towns/small cities may still be using X band radar. If Auto Quiet is engaged in City 1 or City 2 modes and the unit receives a strong radar signal, the unit performs the Auto Quiet feature. City Modes do not change the audio alert for laser or VG-2.

Dim/Dark Mode

Dim/Dark Mode reduces the illumination of the display.

Press and hold Power for 2 seconds to reduce illumination to a Dim setting.

Pressing and holding the power button for 2 seconds a second time engages Dark Mode.

The display illumination is further reduced.

Dim or dark can be engaged during an alert. In Dark Mode, the display goes dark for as long as a signal is being detected and for 20 seconds after, then the display returns to the dimmer setting.

Pressing and holding the power button a third time restores full illumination to the display.

LASER/RADAR ALERTS

Highway Mode

Highway mode provides full audio warnings any time

radar (X, K, Ka, Safety Radar) or laser signals are detected, and is recommended for open road driving.

Radar Audio Alerts

When your Whistler detector encounters traffic radar, it

provides a distinctive audio tone for the specific radar band detected: X, K, or Ka.

The audio alerts are continuous, but have a Geiger counter-likepattern to help you determine your distance from the radar source; the faster the beeping, the stronger the signal strength will be.

Pulse Protection®

Pulse (or instant-on)radar is more difficult to detect than

conventional radar because it remains “off” until activated to measure the speed of a targeted vehicle.

When a pulse type transmission is detected, your Whistler detector sounds an urgent 3-secondaudio warning and flashes the Alert strength indicators at their fastest rate. After the3-secondpulse alert, the standard alert pattern continues for as long as the signal is present.

11

LASER/RADAR ALERTS

It is important to respond promptly to a pulse alert, since warning time may be minimal.

Audio Level Adjustment

The audio levels can be adjusted high to low, or low to high, in seven steps:

Press Volume

up to increase audio level.

Press Volume

down to decrease audio level.

As audio level is adjusted, beeps are provided and the display indicates volume level. The more “bars” illuminated, the higher the volume.

When your detector detects a laser signal, the laser audio alert is sounded and the Laser indicator will illuminate for as long as the signal is present, or for a minimum of three seconds.

When the laser signal is no longer detected, the audio warning ends, but the indicator continues to flash slowly for three seconds, indicating a laser encounter has just occurred.

Laser Tips

If you are the targeted vehicle, a laser gun can often determine your speed within a few seconds after you receive an alert. In this situation there is generally no time to safely adjust your speed. However, if you are traveling near or behind the targeted vehicle and receive an alert, response time should be sufficient. Any laser alert, regardless of duation, requires immediat action!

13

12

VG-2ALERTS

VG-2Detection Mode

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. See page 21 for more information on VG2.

1710A: Does not have VG-2cloaking.

1730A: Press the VG-2button once, unit beeps once

1733: Press and hold the quiet button, unit beeps once.

1734:

When a VG-2signal is detected theVG-2alert is sounded. After 3 seconds the audio is cancelled and theVG-2indicator flashes at a slower rate. This cycle is repeated if the

VG-2signal is again detected.

During the period a VG-2signal is detected, a radar signal cannot be detected. However, because theVG-2alert 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 aVG-2signal is detected.

Note: VG-2must be turned on each time the unit is turned on to receiveVG-2Alerts.

14

SAFETY RADAR ALERTS

Safety Radar Audio/Visual Alerts

Your Whistler detector detects the Safety Warning System. In communities where transmitters are located, this provides advanced warning of various road hazards including accident sites, highway construction, emergency vehicles, etc. and enables you to respond more appropriately to potentially dangerous conditions.

NOTE: You will not be able to receive SWS alerts if transmitters are not located in your area. For a current list of transmitters please visit www.safetyradar.com

CARE & MAINTENANCE

Care And Maintenance

During the summer months, avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight by removing your unit from the dash when your vehicle is parked for an extended period of time. Do not spray water, cleaners, or polishes directly onto the unit. The spray may penetrate through the openings and damage the unit. Also, do not use any abrasive cleaners on the units exterior.

16

ARE DETECTORS LEGAL?

In Most States YES!

Laser detectors are completely legal in every state when used in automobiles or light trucks (under 10,000 lbs.). Similarly, when used in automobiles or light trucks, radar detectors are legal in almost every state. Exceptions are Virginia and Washington, D.C., which have local regulations restricting the use of radar receivers in any vehicle. Concerning trucks over 10,000 lbs., the Federal Highway Administration (FHwA) issued a regulation, effective January, 1994 which prohibits radar and laser detector use in these types of vehicles nationally.

Prior to the FHwA regulation, laws existed in the state of New York restricting the use of radar detectors in trucks over 18,000 lbs. and in the state of Illinois in trucks over 26,000 lbs.

FCC ID HSXWH01 - 1710A/1730A/1733

FCC ID HSXWH10 - 1710A/1730A/1733

FCC ID HSXWH14 - 1734

This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device many not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

IMPORTANT

FCC requirements state that changes or modifications not expressly approved by Whistler could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

SPEED MONITORING

Radar Facts

A radar gun operates by transmitting radio waves at certain frequencies which reflect off objects and are then picked up by the radar gun’s receiving section. When a radar beam reflects off a moving target, a measurable frequency shift occurs. The radar unit converts this shift into miles per hour to determine your vehicle’s speed. Currently, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) permits operation of traffic radar guns at X Band (10.500 - 10.550 GHz), K Band (24.050 - 24.250 GHz), and Ka Band (33.400 - 36.000 GHz).

Note: A radar detector will not alarm if an officer is not transmitting on any one of the above radar bands.

Laser Facts

It’s well documented that many radar guns cannot reliably provide the speed of a targeted vehicle that is traveling in a group of vehicles. In contrast, a laser gun can target a specific vehicle out of a line of traffic and determine its speed. The advantage of laser over radar in terms of target identification is the result of the laser gun’s narrow beam. A radar transmission can cover more than a four-lanehighway at a distance of 1,000 feet, compared with a laser transmission which covers about 3 feet at the same distance. For best protection, keep these points in mind:

SPEED MONITORING

Because you vehicle’s license plate or headlights are the laser gun’s primary targets, mounting your Whistler detector on the dashboard can improve laser detection at short range.

Do not follow closely behind any vehicle you cannot see through. If you can’t see past a vehicle ahead of you, chances are your detector won’t either.

The receiving range of your laser detector will not be the same as a radar detector. Laser guns are most often used at short range.

Whistler Laser/Radar detectors receive all current laser guns which operate at a laser wavelength of 905 +/- 10mm.

Pro LaserI II III

LT1 20-20

Ultra Lyte

Other Speed Detection Systems

Several techniques other than radar or laser are used to measure vehicle speeds. When these methods are being used, no detector can provide a warning. These techniques include:

Pacing - A patrol car drives behind you and matches your driving speed.

Vascar/Aircraft - The time it takes a vehicle to travel a known distance is measured.

19

SPEED MONITORING

Radar Detector Detectors (VG-2)

The Interceptor VG-2,or simplyVG-2,is a microwave receiver used by police to detect signals radiated by the local oscillator of a radar detector. Because its purpose is to identify persons driving with radar detectors, theVG-2is known as a “radar detector detector”.

The VG-2is the primary tool used by the police to identify radar detector equipped vehicles. If caught, in a state where detectors are illegal, (see page ??), drivers risk losing their radar detector and receiving a fine. In addition,instant-onradar is almost always used in combination with aVG-2,leaving unsuspecting motorists vulnerable to receiving two tickets - one potentially for speeding, the other for possession of a detector.

Having a radar detector capable of detecting the VG-2may alert you to the presence of a speed trap.

For more information on speed monitoring technologies, please visit our FAQ page on our website:

www.whistlergroup.com

It is the responsibility of the individual radar detector owner to know and understand the laws in your area regarding the legality of the use of radar detectors.
