      cheap whistlers are all old technology !

            Comments about Whistler® XTR-130 Radar/Laser Detector:

            all cheap whisteler use outdated gun diode technology and dated platforms. Even the new cheap whistlers do ! They just changed the outside! They aren't awful but whistler isn't giving you the best technology available because they make more money on these old tech platforms/detectors and cheaper parts. Look up the fcc id code on the back of this detector and all cheap whistler. Then enter it in the Fcc id site. look at the internal pictures. You will see a metal horn with a lot of screws on it. They are tuning screws for the gun diode ossilator that captures radar signals. OLD TECHNOLOGY If you look at the most expensive whistelrs they don't have any ! That is because they use more expensive L/A technology.

            If you want new technology in a cheap detector cobra uses it on all their detectors.

            Buying one of these whistlers is like buying a old model computer. It works but you can find better for your money.

            Comments about Whistler® XTR-130 Radar/Laser Detector:

            I have to concur with the review by No-to-XTR130

            I tested this next to a Beltronics unit and on this day we encountered 4 police. While the Beltronics went off the Whistler did nothing! Even following a cop it did not detect any signal. It blipped twice for a second (late) out of all 4. Save your money this is a ticket waiting to happen if you trust it! THIS THING IS COMPLETELY WORTHLESS JUNK. I should have listened to the one review. I will be returning this ASAP. My coworkers in the carpool could only laugh at the non performance of this so called radar detector.

                Comments about Whistler® XTR-130 Radar/Laser Detector:

                I'm 47 and have owned radar detectors my entire adult life, and I have NEVER owned a detector that did not function as described. This XTR 130 was the first. I can't even describe how it would not detect the radar signal from the cop who was driving by -- it would beep once, wait a couple of seconds, beep twice, wait another second or two, and beep once -- as if it was confused or something. Any radar detector owner knows that increasing frequency of beeps sound they should hear from a detector as they get closer to the radar source. This XTR 130 is in a world of its own. I waited too long to return by mail (I ordered online) so my only hope is a tax deduction when I donate to a thrift store.

                    Well first of all don't buy the product. Don't believe Radio Shack actually have any in stock. They promise ther itrem ships within one to two busineess days but that is not true. I ordered this prodcut on Tuesday 8/28/2012 around 2:00am but i haver yet to receive andy communication regarding the item being shipped as of today 9/1/2012. I called several times to Radsio Shack, however, they have not beeen helpful the least in explaining why them item has not been shipped.

                        This little baby is worth it's small price. I drive 2 hours 5 or more days per week and through construction zones. I get exceptional detection with ample distance. If they're throwing radar this little Whistler will let you know in plenty of time. I keep mine up a little higher on the windshield for for an unobstructed view to the back for 360 deg coverage.

                                Bought two of these, one for myself and one for my daughter. Seems to work great. Plenty of advance notice before I see the radar gun or car. Buying another for my husband. Cheap and gets the job done.
