Hey, I recently bought a cheaper whistler XTR-195 and returned it to radio shack, it was 79.99 which wasn't a bad deal. It has no real filtering ability except for X band. It still picks up tons of K band stuff, especially new automatic doors etc, I was in a shopping complex yesterday, and it was freaking out. I went ahead and returned the unit, and decided to spend a bit more. I do mostly city driving, runs on the expressway/freeway. Interstate not so much, but do some. So ideally something that is decent in the city to alert me to the many traps in this town would be ideal.
I can't decide on the whsitler SE models. From reading in the Whistler forum, it seems alot of people are having some poor performance out of the new SE models. I was looking at the XTR-690SE or 695SE.
outside of that I was also looking at the older 2007 XTR-690 which was only 129.99 on amazon.
lastly, Beltronics V955, which seems like a good buy also.
what are some you're opinions on these models.
I would say the xtr-695SE will be the one I'm about to click the buy now button on But a bit leary if there are some issues(bugs), since these are brand new. Which leads me to just get the older model and call it done.
