I keep watching this retro whistler200. I like the old steel look.
The seller says tested and works?
Compared to an average moderen rd what would their performance out of 100.
I don't want it for collection I hope it works about half the function of above mentioned.
Give me your opinion. Its the last one......don't buy it off.

Thats a collector/museum piece and nothing more. They worked for the threats of their day. They will be highly ineffective against any modern radar guns. Plus it won't even pick up Ka band.

Thanks, otherwise I'd have bought it. Looking kind heavy shipping would cost about 4-5times overseas.

Completely worthless against Ka and Laser.

But even if you lived some place where only X & K were used it still would be worthless. Thanks to the blind spot radar in modern cars all that Whistler will continue to do is beeb without stop.
