Okay first I'd like to say hello... I've been checking the board out for a couple a days now and have some questions...
I believe back in 2001 I bought my very first dependable Whistler Radar Detector (1790SE 30th Ann.). The thing has done wonders for me and paid for itself many times over. It even has done a very good job at even picking up laser too (I don't know if this is a good distance of measurement but it did pick up at a distance of 1540.4ft).
Sadly though the speaker went out in it. So while pondering weather to just replace the speaker or not I started looking into new Radar Detectors.
Wow was I amazed by the prices I'm seeing in stores and on top of that none of the stores are carrying Whistler anymore.
I love all the features that the 1790SE has and I'm wondering if there is anything new out there that encompasses all that it had and more (like Ku band)?
I see that they have the 1793SE on their site for sale but if I'm correct I believe its behind on the times now, correct?
I also see that they are coming out with the XTR-695 but it may fall prey to the same problems as the XTR-690 with the display (personally I don't like the reverse display that they decided to go with).
The Pro78 looked promising until I found it doesn't have the compass (yes I actually use my compass).
So...am I being to wishy-washy or is there something out there for me? I'd love to read your responses.
