BENTONVILLE, ARK. —
The Whistler Group recently introduced a laser/radar detector meant for discreet installation. It will be available in January for $479.
The PRO-3600 features a text display as well as a voice module indicating all aspects of modes, alerts and GPS-derived features. The system incorporates an interface box mounted under the dash that allows for additional modules to be connected, according to Whislter, and a small display console, LED and voice module are then added to complete the installation.
Other features include a Ka Max mode that reportedly achieve the maximum performance from each unit while the RSID (Radar Signature ID) mode allows the user to know if the Ka signal is from one of the common Ka band police radar guns by indicating 33.8, 34.0, 34.3, 34.7 and 35.5 or if it was a potential false alert.
The Laser Signature ID (LSID) mode lets users identify the pulses per second (PPS) rates and store the ones that may be caused by laser-based cruise control systems and other non-speed enforcement sources of laser, Whistler said, with stored PPS rates giving an alternate alert that is less intrusive. Four user selectable laser segments will also aid in ignoring false laser alerts, such as those caused by Laser Assisted Cruise Control systems found on some models offered by Toyota, Lexus, Infinity and others, the company added.
The model has three aux ports, an optional laser module, dedicated ports for an optional GPS module and an optional rear radar/laser antenna.
