Don;t know much help ?
I don;t know much about radars but one thing i do know is that cobras sucks by word of mouth and discussion forums ... so i won;t try them at all .. whistler seems like a good test for my first radar ... i drive mostly on the highway and was looking for a whistlerto buy which one would be best to get i read alot of the of the XTR-690 ad the Whistler Pro 78 ... which one is the best one to get ?
Pro 78, out of those two.
Then again, for that amount of money, a beltronics v955 would do you even better!
Personal opinion. I would get the XTR-690 probably. Same performance... different features.
The XTR-690 does look like a nice Whistler though! :P
The average user won't notice a difference, and the Whistler should come with more features.

And no "Service Required" messages to ruin your day and leave you without protection!
