Ka Max Mode gives you improved Ka Band sensitivity. Radar Signature ID displays known Ka gun frequencies to help distinguish threats, and Laser Signature ID does the same by displaying pulses per second of received laser signals. Take advantage of 360-degree coverage for all radar and laser bands, Whistler’s patented POP-mode detection, and a wealth of bonus features like a 72-point digital compass and vehicle battery voltmeter.

A detector that maximizes sensitivity and minimizes falsing. Click to enlarge.

4.41 x 2.84 x 1.35 inches and just 5.6 ounces.

This unit features Whistler’s low-profile “alert periscope” LEDs that flash when the unit alarms.

Choose from 7 different display colors. For example, X band can alarm in Green, K band in Red and Ka can scroll all the colors.

Ka RSID (Ka Radar Signal IDentifier)
Identify the difference between the likelihood of a Ka threat vs. the likelihood of a Ka false from another source (possible radar detector). The Ka RSID feature will educate you to the common Ka speed radar guns by displaying the nominal police radar frequencies of 33.8GHz / 34.0GHz / 34.3GHz / 34.7GHz / 35.5GHz. The Ka alerts that do not fall into the common Ka speed radar windows will be reported only as Ka.

LSID (Laser Signal IDentifier)
Identify the Laser gun’s pulse rate or PPS (Pulses Per Second) that is transmitted by the speed laser gun. LSID may also be used to identify other forms of laser sources such as LACC (Laser Assisted Cruise Control) systems found in some high end vehicles. If the Laser PPS information displayed is due to another source such as local airports or LACC, LSID allows you to Lock Out this rate from giving you the continuous audio alert during this and any new encounter of the same rate.

Three Filtering Mode
There are times when a radar detector can emit the same frequency as police radar and can cause your detector to falsely alarm. Sometimes a detector can display a signal when picking up another radar detector in vehicle close by. The Whistler Filter Mode options provide additional signal processing to minimize the occurrences of these false alarms. Filter mode provides normal processing. Filter 1 and Filter 2 modes provide additional signal analysis before alarming.

7 Color Backlit LCD Text Display
The XTR-695SE’s brilliant text display provides distinct visual confirmation of signals detected, signal strength, and indicates engaged modes of operation. You can choose from 7 different display colors for a bit of personalization, even assigning a different color for each band, or scrolling colors.

72 Point Digital Compass
Keep your bearing visible to stay oriented, and get accurate voice alerts.

Vehicle Battery Monitor
The vehicle�s battery voltage can be displayed at the press of a button, so you can monitor your battery level.

External Audio Jack
The 2.5mm external audio jack can be used to connect an external speaker or headphones in environments with high ambient noise levels. The internal speaker will be disconnected.

Add the Whistler INTELLICORD and you’ll be able to remotely control the radar detector in settings such as power on/off, city modes, dim/dark and quiet/auto quiet with a simple press of a button.

Real Voice Alerts
Real Voice provides added information to the detected signal over and above the simple band ID tones. The unit says “X band” when it detects an X band signal. This allows you to keep your eyes on-the-road. Real Voice is also used to articulate Safety Warning System messages and feature selections. Real Voice will be used to articulate the following:

  • Band Identification
  • Safety Warning System messages
  • Feature Selection

POP Mode Alerts
There are new guns out there that operate just like the instant-on guns of the past but with a very tough new twist–POP mode. This new gun is a normal K and Ka band radar gun detectable by most radar detectors made in the past 30 years until it’s in POP mode. When the gun is in POP Mode and activated, a brief burst of energy, less than 1/15 of a second, is transmitted and the vehicle’s speed is quickly acquired. A detector without POP Mode detection capability cannot respond to this brief transmission. This one can.

Low Profile Alert Periscopes
Whistler’s Low Profile Alert Periscopes provide an added attention getting visual alert. The two extra LEDs flash on and off when the unit alarms to provide a unique visual alert.

Selectable Total Band Protection
This unit provides complete band coverage of all Laser, Radar (X, K, and Ka bands), VG-2, and Safety Radar bands. You can select which bands to leave on or off based on your detection needs.

360 Degree Protection
Units with 360 protection detect signals from all radar, laser, VG-2 and safety radar systems wherever they come from; front, rear or from the side. Ka Max Mode provides enhanced Ka sensitivity for increased protection.

3 City Modes/Highway Mode
Highway mode provides full audio and visual warning of laser/radar systems while maintaining full sensitivity. Highway mode is the default setting of all Whistler’s laser/radar detectors. City mode helps reduce the annoyance of automatic door openers and burglar alarm alerts by providing an initial alert (same distance as Highway Mode) then remaining quiet unless the signal strength becomes very strong. When the signal increases the unit will alert briefly to notify you of the change in signal strength.

Stay Alert
The Stay Alert feature is designed to test a driver’s alertness. Within 30 to 60 seconds after the feature is engaged an alert is sounded; to show alertness, the driver must press the volume, city or the mute button within 3-5 seconds. If a button is pressed within 3-5 seconds, the cycle is repeated. If a button was not pressed within 3-5 seconds the unit alarms at full volume and the display shows an unique visual alert.

Auto Dim Mode
The Auto Dim feature automatically switches the illumination of the text display between the bright and dim settings according to varying light conditions so that the text display will always be easy to read.

Quiet/Auto Quiet Modes
Pressing QUIET before a signal is detected engages Auto Quiet Mode, which automatically reduces the audio level after the initial warning to a low audio level setting. Pressing QUIET during a radar/laser encounter silences audio alerts, while allowing visual alerts to keep you informed.

Alert Priority
When two or more signals are received at the same time, the alert priority is: Laser, VG-2, Speed Radar, Safety Radar.

Example: If X band is alerting, then suddenly a VG-2 signal is detected, the VG-2 warning will override the X band alert.

Vehicle Battery Saver Mode
The Vehicle Battery Saver Mode automatically shuts off your detector within 3 hours if you forget to turn it off. The timer is reset if the detector is turned off, unplugged or any button is pressed before the 6 hours have expired. The detector will alert you with an audible and visual warning before it shuts off.

Safety Warning System–SWS
This relatively new radar is not for speed detection at all, it is used to keep you informed of highway safety. Transmitters are installed and programmed (for example: in emergency vehicles) to make you aware of possible situations that may require your attention, such as: ambulance vehicles that are moving or stationary, road hazards ahead, road construction delays or detours, etc.

  1. Works like a charm. I bought this for combination of price and performance. Highly recommend.I live in Florida, and travel mainly on flat, straight highways. The range is excellent. Many times I have found myself slowing down and then looking for the trooper, wondering where he could be thinking it was a false alarm, only to find him/her waaaaay up the road. This thing gives you plenty of time to slow down safely and calmly before running up on the trooper.In Highway mode, it picks up…

  2. Was Good At First, But One Year Later… Initially I would have given this 4 stars (“I Like It”) because for the price I paid I thought it did a thorough job, and I was able to confirm that it does in fact pick up the Laser band.But after having used it for over a year now, saying “I like it” would be a lie. Because this is what has happened to this device in my possession after a year:1) The bracket that connects to the unit no longer securely “snaps” in place (probably from repeated…

  3. Great detector! I had a previous version, the XTR-695 and the speaker blew out, so I ordered this newer version. Very sensitive and has never failed to alert me in time. When I registered the new detector with Whistler, I mentioned that my older detector had a blown speaker and Whistler responded to me by telling me my older unit was still under factory warranty and could be repaired by Whistler if I paid for the shipping back to them. I told them I had disassembled the unit and asked if they would just…
