The XTR-690 SE also provides a unique "Signature ID" feature for Ka band radar (RSID) and laser. This feature provides more detailed information about the alert you are receiving, and for laser allows you to lock out false alerts based on the pulse rate!

Whistler XTR690SE Description:

The XTR-690SE also offers all of the features you would expect in a high performance detector. It will detect POP mode radar and provides Whistler's Real Voice alerts. The XTR-690 SE provides a red text display. A digital compass is also provided.

The Whistler XTR-690 SE also delivers several features that are new to Whistler (other than the Bel/Escort-like performance). These are: a "periscope" alert LED on the top of the unit, opposite the "laser eye", a battery voltage meter, and true VG-2 immunity. Other Whistler detectors employ "VG-2 cloaking", in which the detector shuts itself down when it detects the VG-2.

Whistler XTR690SE Features:

Ka Max Mode
The XTR-690 SE offers enhanced high performance coverage, with 360-degree perimeter band monitoring, X band, K band, and new and improved Ka Max monitoring with extra-high sensitivity.

Exclusive radar and laser signature IDs (RSID and LSID)
This feature gives you a unique signature ID for Ka band radar and laser transmissions. You'll receive detailed information each time the XTR-690 SE receives an alert from either Superwideband (Ka) or laser frequencies. RSID will indicate Ka 33.8, 34.0, 34.3, 34.7, or 35.5 on the display screen (these are the most common police speed radar frequencies). Similarly, LSID will indicate the pulses per second transmitted by speed lasers, and lets you lock out "false alarms" from things like cruise control systems, based on their pulse rates.

72-point digital compass
72 total points of reference make the digital compass built into the XTR-690 extremely accurate. To use, simply mount the unit inside your vehicle in a level position, away from other magnetic sources such as speakers. Select a clear area in which to park, such as a parking lot or field, and follow the directions in your owner's manual to calibrate the compass. Calibration will stay set even when the unit is removed from the vehicle, although you should recalibrate if you reposition the mounting bracket to another location.

Intellicord ready
This unit can accept the Intellicord (sold separately), which is a power cord that lets you remotely control your detector's settings.

Selectable Real Voice alerts
Real Voice alerts give you an audio vocal alert in addition to the simple band ID tones. The unit will say "X band" if an X-band signal is detected. This allows the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road and eliminates possible confusion caused by the use of tones to identify various signals. The Voice Alert is selectable. It also vocalizes safety warning messages and feature selections.

POP mode radar detection with twin alert low-profile periscopes
POP mode is a form of police radar gun developed several years ago in an attempt to offer radar that would defeat detectors. The transmissions from POP mode radar are much faster than those from typical radars, and are emitted in short bursts rather than long signals like those from typical radar. The XTR-690 can detect even the quick signals of POP mode radar in your area, and alert you in plenty of time. Flashing LEDs on the twin low-profile periscopes give you a visual warning, but can be turned off if you choose.

3 city modes and 1 highway mode
City mode helps reduce the interference and confusion that can be caused by things like automatic door openers, burglar alarm alerts, and other things that can cause your detector to react. While in city mode, the detector will provide an initial alert when signals are detected, and then remain quiet unless the signal strength increases. When and if the signal does increase, the unit will alert you again to notify you. This helps "weed out" other types of signals. In highway mode, the XTR-690 provides full audio and visual warning of all laser and radar signals and maintains full sensitivity at all times. Highway mode is the set default.

Quiet and Auto Quiet modes
Quiet Mode cancels audio during an alert for 20 seconds. After 20 seconds, two beeps are provided on any new alert, and then the unit will remain quiet after that. Auto Quiet reduces the audio to level 1 approximately five seconds after a signal is detected.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
