Advanced Features of the Whistler PRO-78

POP mode radar detection with twin alert low-profile periscopes POP mode is a form of police radar gun developed several years ago in an attempt to offer radar that would defeat detectors. The transmissions from POP mode radar are much faster than those from typical radars, and are emitted in short bursts rather than long signals like those from typical radar. The PRO-78 can detect even the quick signals of POP mode radar in your area, and alert you in plenty of time. Flashing LEDs on the twin low-profile periscopes give you a visual warning, but can be turned off if you choose.

Selectable Real Voice alerts Real Voice alerts give you an audio vocal alert in addition to the simple band ID tones. The unit will say "X band" if an X-band signal is detected. This allows the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road and eliminates possible confusion caused by the use of tones to identify various signals. The Voice Alert is selectable. It also vocalizes safety warning messages and feature selections.

3 city modes and 1 highway mode City mode helps reduce the interference and confusion that can be caused by things like automatic door openers, burglar alarm alerts, and other things that can cause your detector to react. While in city mode, the detector will provide an initial alert when signals are detected, and then remain quiet unless the signal strength increases. When and if the signal does increase, the unit will alert you again to notify you. This helps "weed out" other types of signals. In highway mode, the PRO-78 provides full audio and visual warning of all laser and radar signals and maintains full sensitivity at all times. Highway mode is the set default.

Intellicord ready This unit can accept the Intellicord (sold separately), which is a power cord that lets you remotely control your detector's settings.

Quiet and Auto Quiet modes Quiet Mode cancels audio during an alert for 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, two beeps are provided on any new alert, and then the unit will remain quiet after that. Auto Quiet reduces the audio to level 1 approximately five seconds after a signal is detected.

Radar Frequencies:

  • 10.500 - 10.550 GHz (X band)
  • 24.050 - 24.250 GHz (K band)
  • 33.400 - 36.000 GHz (Ka Superwideband)

This Whistler product performs better than any other detector that I have owned. When I mention advanced detection...truly ahead of it's time. Read the instructions, you can not go wrong, it's great!

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Make sure you read the instructions so you can set all the options properly. I turned off X band because every time X band was detected it was not police radar (they don't use X band anymore in my area)

Disappointing detector

Very spotty performance. Sometimes amazing but more often not. Really bad in town. Confuses x band with k band which is a serious problem. Save your money. I wish I had. NOT RECOMMENDED In fact I am not certain that the new versions of this are much better as they use the very same platform. I can't say this for certain though as I don't own own. Just be warned

Good replacement for my Escort - Passport

This Whistler replaces my older Escort - Passport. Even though the older and more expensive Escort - Passport is much smaller, the Whistler has much fewer false alarms and is easy to program. The windshield mounting bracket could be improved, but once you bend it to your vehicle, all is good.
