Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Hi,i have a whistler 1773 laser-radar detector and it reads on the display DISTORT.i can't find anything in the owner's manual or on the website.can you help?thanks, angie


Answers :

If compass is not calibrated correctly or if there is a strong magnetic field (dash or windshield mounted speakers), the unit will show incorrect direction or display "DISTORT". Re-calibrate the compass to correct the readings. Units that display "DISTORT" need to be moved farther away from the speakers or other magnetic field, then re-calibrate the compass. \015\012 Optional Theft Protection/Extended Warranty\015\012 \015\012 \015\012 \015\012\011\011 Theft Protection
