Hi, I'm new to these Forums but am already impressed with the wealth of info and the quality of the posts.
I see in some posts Michael B is a Whistler resident expert. I hope he can help with a little problem. I've had my model 1788 for about 2 years and it seems to have let me down at a bad time. Got a ticket and the unit never made a sound. In retrospect, I hadn't really paid attention to the fact that the day before and up umtil I got cited the unit hadn't even falsed where it normally would have in the past. It runs the power-on self-test just fine. I have purposely tested it since then and it is detecting nothing. Anything I can do about this or is it a paperweight?
On another note, I am impressed with everything I've seen about the new XTR695except for the fact I can't get one. Anyone know if the 8/8/08 ship date is real? I feel naked out there without a working unit and I drive too much to wait around forever for "vapor-ware". I can get Amazon to overnight me a Pro78 (hopefully rev C, no way to tell) for about $150 but I really am interested in the newer unit.
Thanks in advance for any pointers or comments. Looking forward to getting to know you all in the near future.
