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
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

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.
super old model and no manual available online. What info do you need? Whistler does have tech info if oyu click on radar detectors and then on the left pane - click on Additional Models. At the pull down menu - select 1190.
