I was lucky to purchase a Sti Magnum in very good condition with BS/RDR firmware for $160. With that being said I used to be a techie guy with numerous radar detectors and got away from that because of kids and what not for a number of years. My father bought me a dash cam and that kind of got me started again because I came across two good radar traps using my old trusty old Escort 8500 X 50 and started looking at YouTube videos. Anyway.. I also bought a Uniden R3 and will be using the new STI magnum and the dash cam (not both detectors running together) and possibly posting some videos Vortex made me feel like I hadn’t skipped a beat and I’m off the bench and back in the game. Thanks to him and the hard work of the other testers on this forum!
