Just wanted to let you all know how great it is to have Michael B here handling the Whistler Forum (as if you old timers didn't already know that). I sent him my 1788 that had quit working and I got it back today with a new capacitor installed and tuned to the latest specs at no charge.
Thank you very much Michael! My wife now has the X140 I bought as a fill-in and I must say, for a simple little unit it worked very well and had decent sensitivity. It's perfect for her style of driving as long as she remembers to turn it off ... LOL.
I ordered a Pro78 from Amazon and it should be here in a few days but I must confess I missed the old 1788 and I found the battery power capability came in handy sometimes. Once I get the Pro78 I'll give her the 1788 and keep the X140 in reserve.
I was pleasantly surprised to get the package today though and this will go a long way to keeping me a loyal Whistler customer.
