PDF OCR Transcript: Laser SPEED MONITORING SPEED MONITORING Compass Calibration Set-up (Z-23R Only) The unit must be calibrated in order for the compass to provide accurate headings. To calibrate the unit, perform the following procedure: 1. Mount the unit level in the center of the vehicle’s windshield. Make sure there are no magnetic sources near the detector (i.e., speaker). 2. Select a large clear area (parking lot or field) without any power lines. 3. Press the Menu button until display shows CAL MODE. Then press the Dark and Quiet buttons simultaneously. The display shows (scrolling): Facts It’s well documented that many radar guns cannot reliably provide the speed of a targeted vehicle that is traveling in a group of vehicles. In contrast, a laser gun can target a specific vehicle out of a line of traffic and determine its speed. The advantage of laser over radar in terms of target identification is the result of the laser gun’s narrow beam. A radar gun’s transmission can cover more than a four-lane highway at a distance of 1,000 feet, compared with a laser gun’s transmission which covers about 3 feet at the same distance. For best protection, keep these points in mind: • Because the vehicle’s license plate or headlights are the laser gun’s primary targets, mounting the Whistler detector on the 4. If calibration does not automatically finish, press the Dark and Quiet buttons simultaneously to complete calibration. The unit will beep twice and display shows, for example: dashboard can improve laser detection at short range. • Do not follow closely behind any vehicle. If you can’t see past a vehicle ahead of you, chances are your detector won’t either. • The receiving range of your laser detector will not be the same as a radar detector. Laser guns Note: In Combo Mode, an “H” or “C” will be are most often used at short range. shown to indicate mode of operation. Whistler Laser-Radar detectors receive all current Important: If unit mounting is relocated in the vehicle, (i.e., visor to windshield mounting laser guns which operate at a laser wavelength of 905 +/- 50nm.or dash mounting), or if the unit is moved to another vehicle, you must recalibrate the compass.

However, if you are traveling near or behind the targeted vehicle and receive The detectors detect laser/radar newest the is majority detectors tool called Police Spectre. of on undetectable have the Spectre to market. detect (VG-2) can radar an alert, response time should be sufficient. Any laser alert, regardless of duration, requires immediate action! Other Speed Detection Systems Several techniques other than radar or laser are used to measure vehicle speeds. When these methods are being used, no detector can provide a warning. These techniques include: • Pacing - A patrol car drives behind you and matches your driving speed. • Vascar/Aircraft - The police measure the time it takes your vehicle to travel a known distance. Radar Detector Detectors: VG-2, Spectre The Interceptor VG-2 or simply VG-2, is one type of microwave receiver used by Police to detect signals radiated by the local oscillator of a radar detector. Because its purpose is to identify persons driving with radar detectors, these devices are known as a “radar detector detector” (RDD). An RDD is the primary tool used by the police to identify radar detector equipped vehicles. If caught in a state or country where detectors are illegal (see page 19), drivers risk losing their radar detector and receiving a fine. In addition, instant-on radar is almost always used in combination with an RDD, leaving unsuspecting motorists vulnerable to receive two tickets - one potential for speeding, and the other for possession of a detector. Due to the specialized equipment necessary for testing a Laser-Radar receiver, there are no authorized service stations for Whistler brand detectors other than Whistler.

Radar Facts A radar gun operates by transmitting radio waves at certain frequencies which reflect off objects and are picked up by the radar gun’s receiving section. When a radar beam reflects off a moving target, a measurable frequency shift occurs. The radar unit converts this shift into miles per hour to determine your vehicle’s speed. Currently, the FCC permits operation of traffic ARE DETECTORS LEGAL? In Laser-Radar (except have radar automobiles Most local receivers Virginia States regulations detectors or in and light any YES!

Note: A radar detector will only alarm if an officer is transmitting on any one of the above radar bands. • Check for a loose lighter socket; tighten and clean. • Check the connections at both ends of the power cord. Substitute another cord to determine if the cord is defective. Return the defective cord to the factory. PROBLEM: Audio alerts are not loud enough. • Cancel Auto Quiet Mode or City Mode. • Check audio level setting (see pg. 9).

During the period a VG-2 signal is detected, a radar signal cannot be detected. However, because the VG-2 alert has confirmed that a patrol car is nearby, you are already aware of the potential for speed monitoring and can adjust your speed accordingly. Laser detection is not affected while a VG-2 signal is detected. (See page 17 for more information)
Traffic Flow Signal Rejection (cont’d) When turned on in option mode, helps eliminate excessive alerts from erroneous X and K-band sources. Traffic flow monitoring systems are getting more common. Many of these systems generate radar signals to measure the flow of traffic across multiple lanes. Most detectors will alert you to it unnecessarily. This rejection feature examines the incoming signal and will aid in reducing the alerts to such sources. We suggest you turn TFSR on if you are experiencing excessive X or K band false alerts every half mile or so along stretches of roadway that contain these traffic flow sensors.
Selectable Saver Mode Vehicle Battery The Vehicle Battery Saver Mode automatically shuts off your detector within 3 hrs. The timer is reset if the detector is turned off, unplugged or any button is pressed before the timer has expired. The detector will alert you with an audible and visual warning before it shuts off. During this warning, you can momentarily reset Compass Mode (Z-23R Only) The unit is programmed from the factory in “Combo Mode”.
