I don't know this particular model. I will comment genericaly.

Most of these devices have an internal memory battery. Some models use a gold leaf capacitor.

In some models the memory battery is on solder terminals. If you are experienced at using a soldering station and know about how to change components on a circuit board, you can change this type of battery yourself. You will have to open the unit to get the battery part number.

If the unit uses a socketed type battery, this is a lot easier to change.

If the unit uses a gold leaf capacitor, the old one would have to be un-soldered from the circuit board, and the new one soldered back in.

Once you have the specifications for the required gold leaf capacitor, or the required battery, you can probably get these from most electronic parts suppliers.

There is a chance however that this manufacture is using proprietory parts. Then you will be forced to order original parts.

Rarely, it is possible that the memory storage problem is a bad IC on the circuit board. If the IC is a SMD device, you may not be able to change it with conventional soldering tools. This will be manufacture service only.

If you are not familiar with the above, you should call the manufacture to find out how to have your unit serviced by them or an authorized service place located near to you.

This means that your RD has failed several attempts to self-calibrate its internal antenna. Like the message says, you must send in your V995 for service. Bel will fix whatever the issue is, and they will install the latest firmware too. Also, be sure to ask Bel to check and see if they need to replace the existing speaker with their new "high temp" speaker. The new speaker resolves potential issues of the original speaker failing due to high heat conditions.

Bel/Escort now use a special "high temp" speaker which resolves issues of blown speakers. They can replace the blown speaker inside your RD.

Why does the cloud have a queston mark in the middle of it

It may not be able to determine your current location (as it uses your ISP's given IP address to determine) and you can manually set your location but their software does not retain your setting when you close the window. As their website states:

Some of our toolbars provide a handy weather widget in the list of buttons. By default the location displayed will be based on information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) which may not correctly reflect your actual location. To manually change the weather location:

  1. Open the weather widget by clicking on the toolbar button fab0647935ab42aabb69f23361c5a045, and click the "Change" link found at the bottom right of the window (identified with a red square in the image below)
    . 30a512dbef3b484f9c3dd49cf91b3500
  2. Enter either your desired city name, or zip code in the search box.weatherlocation.jpg
  3. Click Save or hit the enter key to select this new location and close the edit dialog box.

If your location is not found, we will display the weather for the nearest location to you. As our weather information is provided by a third party, we unfortunately do not have the ability to add new locations.

RADAR (WeatherBlink only)
Unfortunately at this time the RADAR widget cannot be customized to retain your currently location. While you can input your Zip code to show the radar for your desired location, this setting is not retained once the window closes. We are looking to see if this can be resolved with our content provider and regret any inconvenience this may cause.

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.

My detector is in compass mode. how do i put it in highway mode?

Press the Menu button and the unit should show "COMBO" if it does then the Radar and compass is turned on. If it only shows "COMPASS" then press the dark or City button to have the "COMBO" displayed. Then wait a few seconds and the unit will exit menu and save your setting.

My whistler 1778 radar detector wont pick up a signal? ive went past tons of cops but it never shows up. i have all my bands on. is there any settings i need to change or what?

Have you tried a factory reset? Hold in the power and quiet buttons at the same time. While holding in these buttons plug in the power cord. The unit should beep twice. Try that. If the unit still isn't right, call Whistler at 800-531-0004.

The display just shows you the different types of radar bands it is detecting. For example, the is an X band, a K band, a KA band and so forth. All it is, is a different frequency of radar being used.

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.

K and f off

Power off the RD using its power button. Then hold down the two programming buttons and press the power button while holding down these the two programming buttons. Release all three buttons once RESET is displayed on the RD's display. Your 8500 has now been reset back to the original factory settings with all bands enabled. You can download a PDF duplicate of the original user manual from Escort's web site.
