Default XTR 195

I have recently purchased a new model xtr 195 whisler radar detector. Do you Mike B. have any technical data on it's individual band sensitivities in db's?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, it is company policy to not give out that information.
People tend to compare db's as the sole decision maker to a good radar detector.
The truth is it is far more complicated than that.
Response time to qualify an alert is just as important to consider.
Drivability is another important factor to consider.
If your unit is always alerting, you will not trust it regardless of the sensitivity.
If your unit does not respond to brief transmissions of radar, you will not get the same warning as if CW was in use.

May I ask what state you live in?
Are you aware of the radar/ laser that is used in your local area?

I would like to tell you but it is my personal policy not to give that info out.

I am interested in stalker ka radar primarily. I have tested the unit with a K band radar and the unit doesn't do particularly well on brief transmissions of radar that you mention as primarily of importance over sensitivity. I don't know about the stalker 34.7 transmissions. Can you give me any more info on this band and the detector or should I just go to a radar detector test site look for a similar whistler model type and find this out for myself?

what you could tell me if this isn't breaking any company policies I hope is if this new unit is an entirely new whistler rd platform or just a cosmetic, slightly tuned up revision of the older xtr platform?

The speed in which the XTR-195 and all other current whistler models report K band is only equaled by the V1.

If you are dissapointed in the reaction time of the Whistler K band then you will be severly dissapointed in most other brands as they take twice as long to confirm K band.

34.7 Ka is another area that the Whistler unit performs well in its speed of processing. The Whislter models alert in less than half the time of other brands of detectors.

Whistler Ka response typically in less than .3 seconds
Most other brands typical Ka response is from .5 seconds to a full second.
