Now you’ll know when to throttle back your Atomic Four to avoid a ticket. Whistler Corporation, based in Chelmsford, Mass., has just announced the release of its 1490 Marine Radar and Laser Detector. The new product offers 360° of detection of all radar and laser guns. To simplify detector use, it is equipped with visibility displays which provide text messages when signals are detected.
Karen McVeigh, Whistler marketing manager, commented on the product: “With the expanding use of radar guns by water authorities, we’ve received an increasing amount of requests from powerboat owners to create a product specifically geared to use on the waterways. With powerboat ownership clearly on the rise, plus Whistler’s leadership position for the past 25 years, it seemed a logical and appropriate step.” The suggested retail price is $349.
