The Whistler XTR-140 is an entry-level, icon-based laser/radar detector designed for 360-degree protection from band signals. It builds from the original XTR-130 by adding along a twin-alert periscope consisting of two blue LED’s that flash when the unit receives an alert, thereby grabbing the user’s immediate attention. Like its predecessor, the XTR-140 detects K-band, X-band, Ka-Band, Ka Superwide, and Safety Alert (SA) signals, while using VG-2 cloaking technology to prevent detector from law-enforcement-grade detector-detectors. Additional features include city & highway modes for reducing the likelihood of false alerts, alert prioriies based on importance (laser, radar, safety), and an auto Quiet Mode that temporarily disables audio alerts in favor of icon alerts.
