Those detectors are completely undetectable. I have an sti magnum that was upgraded from a driver and the only reason I stopped using it was its lack of BSM filtering.
Auto scan tsr helps a lot on highway still excellent detector for California or places that don’t use k band.

To this day i still use my sti driver (wire bonded lna) converted to magnum (but not segmented). I turn off X and K to make it usable in NYC - they only run laser and Ka here anyways. I also use an R7 in my other car for MRCD/MRCT for the speed cams.

I found one in great shape on E bay today so I bought it. Add it to the Redline/O family that I already have.

I have put th magnum in play for this weekend CHP max enforcement holiday weekend in the Santa Cruz Mts area where I live. It got a big time hit last nite on Hwy 17 south from the rear, CHP using Ka band as they do state wide. I was driving the PSL but it was at least 1 full min frm 1st alert before the CHP pulled up nxt to me to pass.

These things are fantastic.

I mean, if you've ever driven around and went, "hey, where's the closest Mazda to me?" - the STI brothers will pick these off from 400km away.

Hi everyone, I recently purchased a beltronics sti magnum and sti driver, i live in Toronto and I hear from some people that they are still undetectable here, I know they are a bit old, (don’t know how old though) but does anyone know if the police can trace these ones or not?
Yeah my still works fine.

That detector is good on a two lane highway but noisy so you can get lulled at times and think it is a false alert but on the highway it can be made to work knowing it's limitations.
