I'm new to RD's and to the forums (I already hit up the intro page). A few weeks ago I bought at Cobra XRS 9545 at Best Buy, then I wound up here and did some more research (and driving) and found that Cobras are pieces of crap. So after more research on here and all over the interwebz, I decided to return the Cobra and got a Whistler XTR 695 overnighted from amazon.com. Best move I could have possibly made!
I delivery drive for Jimmy Johns, and the Whistler has helped me put even more fast in my "freaky fast" delivery. Its range in the city is amazing! I rarely get any falsing, especially since I run it in City 2 Mode no X. It is a bit hard to see in direct sunlight, especially with sunglasses, but the twin alert periscopes and voice alert take care of that issue. I use the light blue back-lighting (works best in the sun) for its normal setting, red for K band (so I know it's the ELPD or some of the MSU PD SUVs), green for Ka Band (so I know its the MSU PD or Meridian Township PD), and all the colors rotating for Laser. I have POP off and compass off, which I think is cool, but I don't need it. I just have it in filter mode since I don't think I need to use Filter 2 or 3, but would that be useful when I'm in a bigger city such as Chicago?
Any other XTR 695 fans out there?
What settings do you use/recommend on it?
