Whistler CR93 Radar Detector Review

Overview of the Whistler CR93 Radar Detector

The Whistler CR93 is now ranked as a 3-star rated radar detector, providing you ample time to slow down in most police radar encounters.

Radar Roy rates the Whistler CR93 as the best GPS enabled radar detector in the under $200 price category, providing you with 4X the capture distance of a police K and Ka radar gun. While its overall performance doesn't match that of the highest priced radar detectors we offer, the Whistler CR93 provides very good performance for the money.

The Whistler CR93 offers 360-degree protection and detects X, K, and Ka radar signals and very good sensitivity to police laser. This Whistler CR93 is the equivalent of the Whistler CR88 but with builtin GPS and photo enforcement database.

Radar Detection Range

The Whistler CR93 has noticeably better range and performance than previous models, and is ranked in the 3-star category because it has four times the capture distance range of a police K and Ka constant on radar gun.

This level of performance and quickness to react to I/O police radar makes this detector very good in instant on encounters.

Sensitivity and Alert Filtering

The sensitivity and filtering of the Whistler CR93 is quite good; you will get some false alerts but will not be bombarded as you would with lesser radar detectors.

ALL NEW Field Disturbance Sensor Rejection (FDSR)

Given all of the K-band based automotive collision avoidance systems that are on the road today, the Whister CR93 provides the unique ability to inform its owner that the detector is being actively being interfered with which may impact its reception performance.

While other detectors may successfully filter out these sources from creating false alerts, the driver is likely more vulnerable to a real police radar traps while in proximity to these systems. FDSR informs the driver of this vulnerability, while still remaining quiet. The Whistler CR93 does especially well at filtering out K-band CAS systems from Chevrolet, Honda, and Acura that can wreak havoc with other radar detectors.

Photo Enforcement Protection with Builtin GPS

Automated photo enforcement cameras and speed traps are everywhere today!
To combat these Whistler has equipped the CR93 with GPS technology and their photo enforcement database, which will alert as you approach one of these locations.

5 of 5 Always Whistler October 4, 2016
Reviewer: Arlene Getsinger from CASA GRANDE, AZ United States  
I've always had Whistler products since the early 90s. This is my 3rd, and the other two still work like a charm. I just wanted to upgrade and it's perfect for my budget. Love how it picks up photo radar and traffic cams.

I couldn't pass up the price and have the latest. Shipping was extremely fast and delivered when promised.

Thank you Radar Roy for all your insight and this site. I've already referred a friend looking for a radar detector for his motorcycle.

I will keep coming back.
