Got the new 78SE in today so it was off to find my local speed signs.
Against a K band speed sign I am getting alerts that match my V-995. Not as good as the V1,9500ix or my STI. But thats not a bad thing. Makes for a much quieter detector around town.
I did multible passes by a 34.7 radar trailer in Ka max mode and hereis what I found. Detection range is very good and tho I did not do a head to head comparison with my other rd's I am very satisfied with the 34.7 performance.
Filerting mode has 3 modes to filter out falses from other detectors. After multible runs against the trailer I found zero loss in detection in any filter mode. I did have several ka falses driving around in the lowest filter mode and found filter mode 2 (the highest) to work superbly with no loss in detection range. There is filter,filter1 and filter 2 modes.
City mode has 3 modes also and I did not find any noticable loss of detection against the k-band sign in any of them. Regular City mode is really cool cause you get 2 beeps and the audio goes silent and you get the numeric strenth. If the level reaches 5 you get 2 more beeps and then silent audio but continues to show the signal strenth number on the display. .. Really cool around town. City 1 mode alerts like highway mode but cuts x-band detection down and city 2 mode alerts like highway mode but does not sweep x-band.
I am very pleased with the features and performance thus far for such and inexpensive RD. Kudos to Whistler.
