    @Kennyc56 and myself ran another set of tests on his CR95 on a set Long course. We did 5 runs with Traffic between the source and detector.

    Run1


    Run2


    Run3


    Run4


    Run5

    Seeing your edited versions of these videos, it sure seems to me that the new Whistlers are hotter with FDSR on! That still doesn’t make sense to me but videos don’t lie! These were truly real world tests with all kinds of traffic including big trucks with trailers between the test cars! The comments I made about the R1 and the CR95 being run together were about a run we did for the Hell of it to watch the CR95 kill the R1 by putting it to sleep, Guess what? My R1 put my CR95 to sleep instead! Go figure! I tried this several times since then and it happens the same way every time! Who would have guessed that outcome? I have run my Redline and R1 together for thousands of miles without even a hint of a problem.

    It does seem that way indeed. And that was exactly one of my questions to the Whistler Support - if the FDSR ON/OFF makes any difference in performance and/or range. I guess when FDSR is OFF, the detector probably still picks up the signal about the same time, but does not alert until it has had enough time to analyze it fully as a legit source. IF that is true, then the time to process and confirm a signal (other than 34.7) seems a bit lengthy...

    Pretty much all I have been faced with so far is 35.5, if this damn thing is any better on 34.7 it really is a monster, especially for the price! I don’t have a Stalker gun,not yet anyway!

    On another note - I have been keeping an eye for new reviews for the CR97 on Amazon and RadarBusters. While I have not seen anything new or exciting, I notice that twice already within the last 3 weeks, both Amazon and RadarBusters are out of stock for it. If that is true, then I guess it is a good thing that it keeps being sold out. Unfortunately we don't get the users input after the sale...

    I’ve noticed they keep being sold out also! That’s a good thing! Hopefully threads like the ones we are starting will play at least a small part in that!

    Wow...Excellent testing/thanks! This is convincing me to crack open my wallet for the CR95. The '95 with Whistler's city mode is ideal for me. They have something called an Intellicord that has programable features for about $20 that looks interesting. Nice results with FDSR engaged.

    @Kennyc56

    Just for clarification, were you running FDSR or FDSr?

    Thanks!!
