    Default Got a new whistler...

    I just found a whistler 680 radar detector. Now I wonder if anyone has any info about this unit? Like say a manual... All I seen on the website is it gets only Ka 34.3 and no laser.

    lol by the scuffs on the top of the case I think it was last used as a doorstop. It does turn on and beep and seems to work.

    Didn't see a manual, but found a little bit of info:

    http://www.whistlergroup.com/de680.asp

    The link says you can trade it in for a newer Whistler.

    Unit appears to have suffered some water intrusion but still able detect radar sources. I opened it up to dry off the case and noticed no water on the circuit board. The real test will be when I put it up against a speed sign. Expect some lulz
