    strange, I have just called Beltronics customer service and was told there is no such program to upgrade the software. only from Driver to Magnum. i will try live chat - hoping it was a new agent who did not know about this..
    chat is not working and I tried to call again with the same result. very strange.
    at least they could tell me Beltronics is not doing that anymore.

    Tell them you want the BS/RDR upgrade if it doesn’t have it

    ok, let me try to call them one more time - the lady on the phone was the same and I am afraid the response would be the same too. Not sure how to get a hold of someone else in there :)
    Here is a note for myself when I call about BS/RDR
    • Ka band segmenting - The ability to enable and disable certain frequency segments of the SuperWide Ka band. ONLY detector users that are familiar with what radar frequencies are used in the areas they drive should change these settings. It is possible to disable detection of Ka radar.
    • RDR toggle - The ability to disable Radar Detector Rejection false alert filtering.

    yep, guys - it worked. I got another guy on the line and yes, when he heard BS/RDR he got it right away. they told me it is 3-4 weeks turnaround but i hope it would be worth the wait. thanks for your help!!

    Funny story, about a month ago, I had a pickup on my alignment rack. I noticed that he had a magnum on his windshield, I asked him how he liked it, he said he loved it,even more since the upgrade he had done.I asked him what segs. he was running. He said what's a segment? I segmented it on the spot to 2-5-8 and cut rdr off for him. He came back a week later and tried to pay me for it! I told him to save his money for a R1!

    Bob I drove OTR for 6 years and ran the same STI Drivers. I own a driver upgraded to Magnum and it’s a very solid performer. Enjoy
