Whistler RD\50x Radar Detector

Limit 3 per customer


he Whistler RD-50x Radar Detector has a compact & discreet design that provides a new level of operating convenience. It includes an innovative Digital Compass to keep you on-course wherever you go. Its bright Blue OLED Text Display shows alerts detected, engaged modes & digital signal strength in easy-to-read text format (i.e. HIGHWAY or Ka9). Alert Priority displays most important signal when more than one is detected. Alert Periscope LED's on top of the unit provide bright blue visual alerts, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road. 360-degree MAXX Coverage & Total Band Protection ensure maximum protection from laser & radar signals including VG-2, Laser Ally, TruSpeed S and Laser Atlanta. High Gain Lens provides increased field of view which means better range. It has 3 different modes, including City & Highway, as well as the Traffic Flow Signal Rejection (TFSR) feature to reduce false alerts. Additional competitive features include: Selectable Vehicle Battery Saver, a Setting Saver that saves your personalized settings so you don't have to re-enter them, a Quiet/Auto Quiet feature, Dimmer, Safety Warning System, POP Mode Alerts, & Stay Alert.

Additional Information: Laser radar detectors are legal for passenger vehicles in every state except Virginia and Washington, D.C. Radar receivers are prohibited in commercial vehicles over 10,000 lbs. Whistler laser radar detectors receive laser guns that operate at a laser wavelength of 905+/50nm. Whistler detectors receive the following radar frequencies: 10.500 10.550 GHz - X Band; 24.050 24.250 GHz - K Band; 33.400 36.000 GHz - SuperWideBand Ka. This includes the POP™ instant-on feature, which operates within the K and Ka bands. POP™ is a trademark of MPH Industries.

  • Total Band Protection
    Provides Complete Band Coverage of all Laser, Radar (X, K, and Ka bands), VG-2, and Safety Radar bands.
  • Blue OLED Text Display
    The RD-50x's display provides better contrast, brightness and color. Shows alerts detected, engaged modes and digital signal strength in text format HIGHWAY or Ka9. Easy to read.
  • Digital Compass
    Keeps you on-course, and prevents you from getting lost.
  • 360 Degree Protection
    Units with 360 protection detect signals from all radar, laser, VG-2 and safety radar systems wherever they come from; front, rear or from the side.
  • VG-2 Detection
    The VG-2, also known as a "radar detector detector," is a special receiver used by police to detect signals radiated by a radar detector. Thanks to Whistler's patented VG-2 cloaking technology, your detector will remain invisible to VG-2 detection.
  • SAFETY WARNING SYSTEM™ keeps you informed of highway safety where transmitters are located.
  • 3 City Modes/Highway Mode
    Highway mode provides full audio and visual warning of laser/radar systems while maintaining full sensitivity, and is the default setting of Whistler laser/radar detectors. City mode helps reduce the annoyance of automatic door openers and burglar alarm alerts by providing an initial alert (same distance as Highway Mode) then remaining quiet unless the signal strength becomes very strong. When the signal increases the unit will alert briefly to notify you of the change in signal strength.
  • Quiet/Auto Quiet Modes
    Pressing QUIET before a signal is detected engages Auto Quiet Mode, which automatically reduces the audio level after the initial warning to a low audio level setting. Pressing QUIET during a radar/laser encounter silences audio alerts, while allowing visual alerts to keep you informed.
  • Vehicle Battery Saver Mode
    The Vehicle Battery Saver Mode automatically shuts off your detector within 3 hours if you forget to turn it off. The timer is reset if the detector is turned off, unplugged or any button is pressed before the 6 hours have expired. The detector will alert you with an audible and visual warning before it shuts off.
  • Alert Priority
    When two or more signals are received at the same time, the alert priority is: Laser, VG-2, Speed Radar, Safety Radar. Example: If X band is alerting, then suddenly a VG-2 signal is detected, the VG-2 warning will override the X band alert.
  • High Gain Lens provides increased field of view which means better range
  • Stay Alert® Whistler's exclusive feature that tests your alertness on long trips
  • Dim / Dark reduces the illumination of the display. When in dark mode, the display is turned off during an alert then remains off for 20 more seconds before returning to its dimmer setting.
  • Twin Alert Periscopes
    Whistler's Low Profile Alert Periscopes provide an added attention getting visual alert. The two extra LEDs flash on and off when the unit alarms to provide a unique visual alert in bright blue.
