You Can Thank Us Later

It's the age old question... Do I keep getting speeding tickets, or do I not keep getting speeding tickets? It can be kind of hard to decide sometimes. There are only a handful of ways to better spend your money than on a speeding ticket. I don't know, like a new video game, a fancy dinner, new shoes, go see a movie, a down payment on a new car... Yeah, but only a few things that are better than a speeding ticket. 9 out of 10 of the people here at Sonic Electronix agree, after heavy debate, that speeding tickets aren't a good thing. As for that 1 person who disagreed, that person wasn't even there for the vote. But you know, it's up to you to decide really. The average cost of a speeding ticket is $200 plus the increase on your insurance... Or you know, there's always this PRO-68SE radar detector that can help prevent all of that. It really is a tough choice; speeding tickets... Or nice things... But we'll let you decide, we know you'll make the right choice.


No Frills, All Performance

Sometimes when you do a redesign on an already great product you have to take some things out to make it better. That's what Whistler did when designing the PRO-68SE. They based their design off of their highly recognized PRO-78SE, stripped out the fancy stuff that the everyday person doesn't use, and beefed up the stuff that really matters. Now, you have a radar/laser detector that has an improved range, simpler user interface and less false alerts for a fraction of the price of competing models. The people at Whistler know what you want and the reviews are in.


No One Is Saying You Should Drive Faster...

...But hey, it does happen every once in a while. Maybe it's a long drive and you've got a clear road ahead of you, or maybe you just don't realize you're pressing that hard on the pedal. Either way, you're covered. The folks at Whistler designed the PRO-68SE with you in mind. They know you want to be protected from a distance so you have time to slow down and with their upgraded technology they've achieved just that.


So Relax!

Stop worrying and start enjoying your car drives again. With the costs of gas the way they are, it can really take the joy out of your joy ride. Worrying about being pulled over plus the cost of gas can make driving down right miserable. We'd make gas a buck a gallon if we could but we can't so we can at least give you a smokin' deal on this radar/laser detector so you can worry less and enjoy more.


Whistler PRO-68SE Features:

  • Whistler High Performance Radar/Laser Detector
  • 360° Protection against all types of laser and radar
    • Detects Laser Atlanta stealth mode
    • Laser Atlanta Speedlaser LIDAR guns use a stealth mode which is specifically designed to defeat radar detectors and laser jammers
    • Detectors expect a steady pulse train for police laser
    • Stealth Mode works by sending out two pulses of laser, after which it pauses long enough to fool the filtering algorithms present in most radar detectors and laser jammers, before repeating the cycle
  • City/Highway Modes:
    • Allows the user to select the operation mode, reducing the amount of false alerts in populated areas
  • Auto Quiet Mode provides an alternate alert pattern, consisting of four beeps (indicating X, K, Ka or Safety Radar) followed by clicking
  • Quiet Mode cancels the audio during an alert and any new alert within 20 seconds
  • Vehicle Battery saver shuts off power after 6 hours automatically when the ignition is turned off
  • Intellicord Ready allows the user to remotely control detector settings such as Power On/Off, City Modes, Dim/Dark, and Quiet/Auto Quiet with a simple press of a button
  • VG-2 Undetectable:
    • Alerts the user when they are under the surveillance of the VG-2 Radar
    • VG-2 Radar is a radar detector police use to determine if someone is using a radar detector

K Band
K Band is the most popular radar frequency band that is used today. It is able to detect speeds from a stand still location, or from a moving vehicle
Yes
Ka Band
Ka Band operates within the frequencies 26.5-40 GHz. This is the newest introduced radar band and it is becoming more and more popular. It rarely has a false alert.
Yes
Ku Band
Ku band ranges from 12-18 GHz when used in radar applications.

VG-2 Immunity
The VG-2 detects radar detectors. Radar detectors with VG-2 immunity will be immune to the VG-2 radar and alert the driver when they are under such surveillance.
Yes
Pop Alert
Some radar guns operate in a POP mode so they can get a speed reading of a target vehicle extremely fast, resulting in most radar detectors not being able to consistently signal an alert. There are very few radar guns in service in the U.S. capable of POP mode operation. If your radar detector is Pop Alert capable, you may notice an increase in Ka-band false alerts when POP mode radar detection is switched on.
Yes

Good detector for the money

August 4, 2014

For the money this detector is great. The first day i had it it saved me the first day i got it. And I haven't had any problems with it yet One thing is that you have to put it on a certain setting so the false alarms will decrease, but you will still get them. This product also has a lot of great features like dim modes, and quiet modes. And this detector can be loud enough to be heard over loud music and also be very quiet when you don't feel like being bothered.

Good and Bad

May 26, 2014

This was my first ever radar detector, I'd never been pulled over before though I felt like I was pushing my luck. So I got a radar detector to give me a little assistance. It saved me once going 85 in a 35, KA band went off slammed my brakes slid around a corner and met a sheriff going 34 miles an hour. Sometimes cops don't have their radars on, which is a major downfall, so you'll still have to watch out. Just got busted criminal speeding, had my friend rip it off the dashboard and throw it under the seat. I had set too much faith in the radar detector after it saved me about 3-4 times, which was major stupidity on my spot. My KA band went off, and I hit the brakes, but the cop was already about 150 yards away scanning me. He told me that he caught me doing 87, although my radar detector went off and I was only doing 75 at that point... But, it would have been stupid for me to tell him I had one. If you're caught doing a speed and you know you're screwed just keep going that speed until they pull you over, find a spot to pull of turn off your headlights and wait until you're not there anymore. I'd also recommend not speeding with a group of people with HIDs on, because I was picked out of a small group; and my car was easily identifiable. Not only is it sporty, fast, but the headlights were just a major set off. Good luck, but I know I won't be speeding anymore.

Detection is good, even when a cop is around the corner. I keep it on all the time. This way when it goes off it reminds me to obey the law. Remember it's a radar detector, not a cop detector.

Good Detector

January 31, 2014

Within the first week the detector saved me from a few tickets. Really picks up any signal. People say its a bulky but I personally don't see it being large at all. Goes off sometimes when I know there isn't any police around but can't complain because it's just picking up signals. I have a few subs and the sound can be adjusted to be loud enough to be heard over the woofers. Pros: Effective at short and long range. Display is very visible. Good length wire. Picks up singles everywhere. Cons: Goes off randomly sometimes when I know there isn't any police around for miles. I recommend this to anyone who wants a detector but doesn't want to spend a lot.

Great Product

January 26, 2014

Absolutely worth it, you get more than you pay for, I spent under $50 and it has been the best investment in my car. This is the best bang per buck for its price range, obviously not a 4-600$ or $1k and above, but for my country and occasional city needs its perfect! Didn't think I would really need it, but it already saved me from a ticket when I gained speed down a hill and it started going off! Love the settings customization, alert styles etc! 4 on durability due to month of owning, although its held up in the MI winter so far 4 on use because it can take a bit to understand the features, but great manual!

when you put this detector in dark mode does it just dim the screen or does all visible display disappear?
Arthur H on Aug 1, 2014
Best Answer: Dark mode the mode indicator remains at this setting but when alerting, the display goes dark for the duration of the encounter, plus another 20 seconds. A pair of blue, laser-bright LEDs also appears during alerts.
