Dear Whistler Owner,
For many of us, a vehicle is more than just transportation.
It can be a mobile office, communications or entertainment
center, or simply an expression of our personality.
Whistler products are designed to make the time you
spend in your vehicle more productive, more fulfilling,
safer, or just simply more fun. Our mission is to provide
products that improve your driving experience.
Your new Whistler laser/radar detector detects all radar,
laser and safety radar systems.
To fully acquaint yourself with the operation of your
Whistler and to better understand the differences between
detecting radar, laser and safety radar signals, we recom-
mend reading this entire manual or visit our FAQ page on
our website www.whistlergroup.com
Enjoy your Whistler and please drive safely.
The Whistler Group, Inc.
