False alarm on the laser and stay on very long moment


Many vehicles have built in signals that radar detectors see as a laser radar. Basically there is no way around it. On my vehicles that emit this signal, I just disabled laser detection on the radar detector.

If your radar detector detects laser you are pretty much effed anyway. The time in capturing a speed reading is less than half a second with laser.

I hard wired the xrs radar but didnt install the fuse, got it shorted out and now it wont turn on...is there a fix to replaced whatever i burned up?


check for power on the line you may have popped that fuse if fuse ok than you more than likely burnt up most of the electronics in your detector

I have a brand new whistler laser radar detector , i received as a gift quite a few years ago. its never been used, is it worth anything?


that model was last sold before 1999. It still detects all the same radar but it will not detect POP radar. For more info on POP radar check out Whistler's radar FAQ page at www.whistlergroup.com

You can trade it in on a newer model by contacting whistler at info@whistlergroup.com

Got a whistler xrt-695 from individual. unit powers up goes thru all the frequencie alerts and laser alerts, scans menu to tell what is active. Seems to be perfect. x-band is on, K,Ka, Laser, all of it,...


how long have you had it? Have you had a radar detector before this one? Try a factory reset - hold in the power button and the quiet button, while holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. The unit will beep twice indicating that its reset. Remember the unit is not a "Cop" detector its a radar detector so not all police cars have radar in them and if they do they may not have it turned on.

What does K1 mean?


The letters X, K, and Ka designate radar frequency bands used by radar based speed monitors. The letters correspond to designations given by Federal Communication Comission (FCC) frequency bands reserved for speed monitor equipment.
  • X band - 10.525 GHz
  • K band - 24.150 GHz
  • Ka band - 33.4 ... 36 GHz
The number (range is 1 ... 5) is the radar signal strength, where 1 indicates weakest signal (you are still at some distance, or maybe false alarm) while at 5 you should be able to see the white in the eye of the cop holding the radar gun.

The letter V indicates the detection of a "Detector Detector". Devices like the Cobra are illegal in some countries and police has counter-measures available to detect some radar detectors. The maker of the Cobra states, their products go unnoticed but that won't help you if highway patrol sees the thing sticking on your windshield.

The letter S indicates hazard warnings (like train crossings).

Finally, L indicates detection of a LASER based velocity detector.

Have a whistler 3000, and power is going to the unit but no lights are visible and unit seem to be working


First this is not a Whistler model, its a Fuzzbuster model. Does the unit 'Beep" when you turn it on? Does the lights flash during this time as well? If so, then the unit maybe working but not picking up signals.

Radar detector codes


When any detector "detects" radar, it will produce some form of Audiable sound. If someone is speeding, they need to slow down IMMEDIATELY if they want to avoid a ticket. It doesnt really matter if the radar gun is x, k, ka, ku, etc. You will probably get a ticket if you dont slow down.

Most dectectors will have indicators lights or displays that indicate the x, k, ka, etc., radar signals are actually being detected. This can provide SOME useful information. THe letters simply designate BANDS of frequencies that are used to send the radar beams. It is similar to changing the channel on a radio - k and ka bands use HIGHER frequencies for their radar signals.

X band is the oldest radar band and it is used for police radars AND door openers at supermarkets and other locations. If you drive by a supermarket, your radar detector is likely to go off and it is almost certainly going to be X band. CHeck it out next time you drive by a supermarket with an automatic door opener.

Since the police and the radar companies like to play cat and mouse, newer radar bands have been invented that OBSOLETE the older radar detectors. When the K bands showed up in the police radar guns, the radar detector folks had to have a new product offering that would detect X band and K band. And the race continues to go on even today and now, there are LASER police speed detectors and the new "RADAR" detectors now need LASER detectors as well. If you want to know the exact frequencies of these "bands" (K, Ka, etc), let me know and I will send them to you. But they are operating in the tens of GigaHertz regions.

What do the letters and sounds mean on the Uniden Raidar detector Laser 3 band?


I am not 100% familiar to this model, but generally, all radar bands are the same across detector brands.

Generally, all the bands with the exception of X-band are considered actual radars that law enforcement uses. In other words, if you see K, Ka, or Laser, you should probably slow down.

X-Band, in most states, is a survallence band used by wireless traffic cameras and automatic door openers at retail stores.

Another common indicator is a P, or POP. Essentially, an officer has switched on and off his radar quickly. This is an evasion technique cops use to thwart radar detector use.

You should try to find out what type of radar devices your police uses.ESD7000 model does not support some devices such as Ku band radar signal, but it should detect all laser signal.Laser signal is often jammed by sun light.If your police uses radar detector detectors VG2 it will force your detector to hide from it making it invisible for detecting.Try talking to someone who has other type of detector that works in your town.It is possible that you will be forced to buy another model.
