I've had an XTR-690 for a couple of years, had it updated by Mike B. I've been pleased with the performance. A week ago I got nail with Laser and no alert. I'm not blaming the detector, as I'm guessing the cop was a good shot. But, it did get me back into looking at what was available (and back to this ole forum). I guess my question is, is there a Whistler out now that offers better performance than my 690, and is worth selling the 690 on fleabay and getting? The 695SE looks nice, but is it that much better than the 690? Any other input would be appreciated.
