This is not a question or issue. I just wanted to give a quick review of the Whistler Pro-3450 if anyone was considering buying it. Installation is very easy and is installable in less than 30 minutes if you've found a suitable mounting location. I have mine slightly back inside the front grill as to not draw attention to it. I did however do some measuring/calculations so it is facing directly forward and level. It does have some decent features, namely:
The ability to turn off X-band, K-Band, Ka-Band, Voltage Meter, Auto-mute, and Temperature Meter (which I mounted inside the air box to measure relative intake temperatures.) The Voltage meter is also very useful since I have 500 watts of lighting so I can monitor if there is any voltage drops.
The good: K-Band sensitivity is phenomenal for the price I paid for it new (139.99). It surpasses the range of my V995 (M4) and V940 (S7) in every instance of contact whether constant-on, quick trigger/instant-on, around corners, over hills, and straight a ways. I haven't tried X-Band or Laser since they are not used at all in my state so I cannot comment on that. The ramp up is also very nice and gradual so distance to target is quite predictable. It also produces less Ka-Band falses than the two vectors which is almost always caused by a nearby Cobra detector.
The Bad: Ka-Sensitivity is lacking. Range is OK, but my V995 (M4) and V940 (S7) dominate it by a significant distance. This is a downside since Ka-Band is becoming considerably more common than K-Band. Again, the ramp up is much better and gradual than the two Bel Vectors I own. Another downside is the implementation of the VG-2 lock out which is worthless and outdated. There is no option to turn it off. It never locks out though but I just seems like a waste of processing since it is scanning for it.
Conclusion: If you absolutely have to or want a remote system it is not that bad and worth the money in my opinion. I would however consider paying slightly more for a windshield mount for superior Ka-sensitivity. Overall I am satisfied as the other options are beneficial to me. Hope this helps anyone in making a decision.
