When a threat is detected, you have a choice of alerts. You can choose to be alerted by the real voice alert, or by the low profile periscopes; these LED lights can be programmed to flash when there is a threat, stay solidly on, or be turned off completely. All three models in the XTR-600 series have radar signature ID and laser signature ID. This means that when the XTR-695 SE has received an alert, the display will give you detailed information about the radar or laser it has detected. All three models in this series are Intellicord ready, meaning that with the Intellicord system you can program settings using a remote control. The Intellicord system is an add-on with a $27.95 MSRP. The XTR-695 SE has all the same specs as the slightly less expensive XTR-695, but with the addition of illuminated soft touch buttons, so that you can see what you are doing in the dark. The Whistler XTR-695 SE radar and laser detector comes with a three year warranty.
