    Hi guys. New member here. Really like what I'm reading around here. Too bad I was unaware this existed. Anyways just had my dear Magnum stolen. Was an upgraded unit and I'm looking for a replacement. Used to live in Ontatio but just moved to California. Should I just look for a used replacement on eBay? Is there another sought after model that's a much better alternative? Any input appreciated. Thanks

    Always sucks to have stuff stolen. But there are some great options out there now. Take a solid look at the uniden R series. Best range ever on a windshield detector, great filtering of falses and not super expensive. Since you are in California and they don't use k band radar, you could get the R1 and turn off kband and have a super quiet super range detector, if you want to still have k band enabled go for the R3 with the GPS features you can quiet down k falses and still have good range for real k band threats. Lots of great features and updates keep making them even better. Here is the test data to help you select your next RD. www.rdforum.org: TXCTG - Testing Index

    For California where KA is king the R1 is a good choice. If you want the GPS features, the R3.

    What area of California are you in?

    R1/R3 is your best choice to replace the Magnum STi. You will still have the great Ka range (even better at times) that the Magnum STi was known for. As a bonus, you will have better filtering of BSM pollution!
