I just purchased a Whistler XTR-695 online yesterday for $145.00 free shipping.
It seems like a decent detector for my use. I have been using an older Pro 58 and I know it has saved me a few times.
Not from those sorry red light cameras, of course. And, I got a ticket from a Laser cop once hanging out in a parking lot. I'm not real sure any detector can beat a laser. Perhaps other countermeasures, but I have read online that any type of jammer is illegal and a Federal offense.
Anyone having good luck with the XTR-695?
