I've had this XTR-690 since it came out and it has never worked right. Somedays it will stay quiet but usually it falses for KA pulse and POP with signal strength 9.
I thought the model was just a piece of junk until I came on here and found everyone raving about it so now I'm looking for suggestions.
I already sent it in to whistler once and they said they updated the firmware and replaced the lense. Unfortunately its still doing the same exact thing as before. Also the falses seem to be non-stop when its cloudy/raining.
Do you think this is a power related issue? Ground noise? Or an over abundance of crappy cobra radar detectors following me around town? I just replaced spark plugs and wires on my car so I don't think its the wires arcing. I might send it back in but I don't think there is much they can do except maybe replace it which they seemed reluctant to do.
I'm tired of driving around with out protection; a few months ago it put me in jail ops:
