Whistler Q 1000 radar detector

I was given an old radar detector that belonged to my dad. The manual I received is not the manual that went with the detector. I was wondering where I might find an old copy of a manual. Anyone know where it might be found? Thanks for any help. Lizard Lou

Re: Whistler Q 1000 radar detector

As a former Whistler employee i can tell you the unit was manufactured by Whistler,but prior to the company being acquired by the current ownership.As far as I know, no manuals are available, but the operation is rather simple with no customer- adjustable controls.The unit does not have any drivers or CPU, just a microwave waveguide and circuit board

Re: Whistler Q 1000 radar detector

I found a statement from Whistler Support that is was not manufactured by Whistler Inc. and was produced prior to 1999. If youre somewhat handy, you might want to open it up and read the fcc id number on the logic board. Search for it here; and it will tell you the manufacturer. It may provide some better information to search with. Why would you even want to use something with technology that old? It has a woodgrain housing for petes sake!! :0) Best of Luck

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

You can trade it in on a newer model by contacting whistler at

Holding down the volume button will cycle up and down through the volume settings. Yet I suspect that the internal speaker has finally given up the ghost. This is a pretty old Whistler RD. I would highly recommend upgrading to a modern radar detector which has much better overall performance. One of my favorite current Whistler products for the budget conscious is their Pro78. This model provides very good performance at a reasonable price.

I just received a whistler 1788 laser radar dectector. how do i use it? set it?

install the windshield bracket, install the batteries, slide the unit onto the bracket and turn it on. For using the other features, it is very detailed in the owner's manual.
