What impressed me most was Whistler's commitment to raise the bar by developing a new line of detectors that would put them into the same class as the higher end models from Beltronics and Escort.During the March RadarBusters.com and Guys of Lidar testing Mike Batton an engineer from Whistler provided pre-production models that we pitted against the Big Three and we were all impressed with Whistler's overall performance. Then in June we tested an off the shelf unit and the 690 was definitely a better performer than any of Whistler's prior products and certainly better than any Cobra. Is the 690 as good as the higher end Escorts or Bels on sensitivity and performance...no.Kudos to the engineers at Whistler for raising the bar on what I would classify as entry level or mid priced radar detectors. New added features include a battery voltage meter backlit blue LCD screen that is easy to read and the periscope LED alert lights on top of the detector that will certainly grab your attention during an alert.Click Here To Order
