I had lots of Amazon credits so I grabbed a Whistler CR95. For those of you following the Whistler thread, I also had a CR97. I gave it to my brother because of the redlight cameras in NYC. This 95 is different than my 97! It doesn't have filters 4 or 5 and the FDSR feature only displays FDSR with a changing signal strength digit....like "FDSR 4"....there is no ####. This unit is pretty quiet the way I am running it from my trials with my CR97. I have the XK filter at 0 and the Ka filter at 1, TFSR off, FDSR on, and my usual City mode ...no Ka falses. Still waiting for a Ka detection. (No LEO's out here due to my new detector. Its true...you want to keep the LEO's away....get a new radar detector). All in all, I am surprised that this unit functions differently. But I still like it. I wonder if its an earlier unit?

I wonder if it has a different firmware on it? It is really strange that FDSR displays different output...

Please let me know if there are any K/Ka Band mix ups. I really wish they would fix that on the cr97, it would be a great RD if they did.

The mix ups are still there but minimized when I run it with minimal filter settings (xk at 0 and Ka at 0 or 1, TFSR With FDSR and in city mode, its pretty quiet but always displaying something.
