Speed cameras usually are located either at intersections or along roadways. Many red light camera models used at traffic intersections also function as speed cameras. These speed cameras will mail you a speeding citation if the camera thinks that you are speeding. Your GPS navigator is warning you about nearby speed cameras. It displays red as you approach the speed camera location where you could get an automatic electronic ticket if you are speeding.

What is the difference between the Whistler XTR 265 and the xtr438


The XTR-438 has Text display (vs. the XTR-265 Icon display), filter and TFSR modes (TFSR = Traffic Flow Signal Rejection). This mode helps reduce the alarms from traffic monitoring transmitters.

No warning when approaching mobile speed-camera


recent worldwide changes in radar technology means that detector technology is not always capable at detecting these mobile cameras, The only way to keep up to date with the newer technology is to constantly keep updating your radar detector. The only issue is they only have to make small changes to the cameras and the new technology won't work.

The USB Port?


The USB port on many high - end radar detector models is for sending one of or the combination of: firmware updates and databases that hold red light camera & known speed trap locations. The database type uploads are usually reserved for those devices that have internal GPS devices. Some others may allow changing settings that may not be readily accessible from the detector's user control panel.

Some USB ports are for possible later use - meaning that the use of the USB port has not yet been utilized. You should contact your detector manufacturer's web site (or customer service representative) to determine what services (if any) are available for the detector via the USB port. Be aware that some services require a one time payment or subscription.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply.

I lost my cord and would like to make a basic power cord can u send me a diagram that shows the color code on the end that looks like phone wire i have material but i dont know where which wire goes...


on a 4 wired RJ11 or Rj12 Phone plug, it's the middle 2 wires. green and red are your positive and neg. Do a quick touch test to confirm which is pos and neg. only works one way. after confirmed. solder the wires and wrap insulation tape around each and then a couple times over both for strength. the phone wire is prone to breakage.

Doesnt detect cops


Radar detection is not an absolute...there are several factors to consider:

-Most radar guns have an adjustable "gain"...which means that if an officer is only checking speeds to vehicles close by, he or she has the option of turning down the power. This means that your detector may not pick up the radar until you are right on top of it, if at all.

-Many police agencies are using laser or LIDAR technology for speed detection. Even if your detector is able to detect laser, the detector will not "see" it unless the police officer aims directly at your detector. The laser beam is very precise, and is only the size of a penny on the target vehicle when the officer is 1000+ yards away. Since the officer is usually targeting your license plate (it is the most reflective, and therefore the best target), the detector on your dashboard may miss it.

-Many radar guns, whether handheld or vehicle based, have an instant on feature. If you are in a "radar detector friendly state", the officers in your area probably use this option so they don't give away their location to those with detectors.

If in doubt, you may want to check your detector in the same vehicle with someone who has a known working one. If their detector goes off, and yours does not, yours is likely defective.

Starts going off when a higher speed is reached


THis is a weird one! The only thing that makes sense is some sort of interference that is impacting the electronics inside the detector. Sometimes ignition "noise" can cause this behavior. I have seen ignition noise so severe that a Garmin GPS would not work inside the car.

Can you test this without moving the car? If you rev the engine while the car is parked, does the detector still go off? This will allow you to determine if there is some form of intermittent operation inside the detector caused by solder joints, etc., or a problem associated with electrical noise.

BTW, what type of car do you have?

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 is pop and spector mean


POP is a type of radar mode which only a couple of radar guns have. In essence, radar gun in POP mode emits an extremely brief signal to measure a car's speed. This brief signal lasts for less than 1/5 of a second. POP mode can not legally be used to write speeding tickets since it is not as accurate as the radar gun's normal operating modes, and since POP mode provides absolutely no radar tracking history.

Most people turn off POP mode in their radar detector's options since POP radar is very rarely encountered and since users experience excessive false alerts with POP turned on.

Spectre refers to the Spectre radar detector detector (RDD) which police use to locate drivers who are using radar detectors. The current Spectre models in use by law enforcement are the Spectre III and IV models. Some Cobra radar detectors claim to be able to detect the Spectre I. This is of no value since all Spectre I RDDs have been upgraded to later Spectre models which Cobra radar detectors can not detect. In short, turn Spectre detection off since this feature is a needless source of false alerts.
