Product Features and Specifications

The new Whistler Pro-78SE has taken the best features of the re-engineered Pro-78 Rev C and added more features and a fresh new look for mid 2009. The Whistler Pro78SE further improves the performance of these budget priced radar detectors by Whistler.

The Pro-78SE Laser-Radar Detector will pick up all radar bands (X, K, KA) as well as all laser radars and has POP mode detection. The Whistler Pro-78SE Radar Detector has a quiet mode, city/highway function, and dual alerts to warn you if multiple threats are received.

The Pro78SE also includes an auto dimming display for a easier to read screen in both the day and night. Another nice addition is the included hard wire kit which will allow you to wire the unit directly to the electrical system and not use the cigarette lighter cord.

Installation and Programming the WHISTLER PRO-78 SE Radar Detector

The Whistler PRO-78SE is easily installed onto the windshield by attaching the metal bracket supplied to the unit, and then pressing the two vacuum cups at the desired position on the windshield. We recommend mounting the detector in the middle of the windscreen, either up high next to the rear vision mirror or down low at the dash level, as long as it clears any physical objects such as the windscreen wipers. For a detailed explanation on which position is best to mount it, see our FAQ page.

Hi mate, i recently came across a new radar detector that is made in oz suited for oz conditions, called "Vengeance" - I was just wondering how this compares to the Valentine 1, as couldnt find any info on it. Would like to know your info on this and which one would be more suited for wa, ta.

It's an Asian manufactured radar detector (it's not made in Oz) imported solely by radars.com.au I haven't tested one myself, so I cannot comment on it's performance. But for a proven track record on being one of the best performers around, look at http://www.guysoflidar.com/radar-detector-test-august-2009/staged-real-world-tests.html

i have a problem of choosing what is the best radar detective, i am from Qatar in the arabian gulf, i can not remember which type of radar they are using, but i am shore it is with k or ka of ku band, the radar took foto from the back, i am not interesting in invisible radar and not interesting with GPS one, i want easy installed one, so which one you advise me to buy

Based on your requirements mentioned, the number one choice for you is definitely the Valentine One, also please read best radar detector
