Finally pulled the trigger for an STi Driver today in (Pilot Truck Stop) Wildwood, FL while traveling on I-75. Hooked it to my 8500's hardwired Smart Cord and it lit up fine. Drove about 20 miles when the "Service Required" display came up. Stopped in Ocala to do a service call then fired it up again, got the SR display again. Kept driving north to next Pilot, got it swapped out, fired the new one up and drove it to Tallahassee without a problem.
I've been an Escort man since the Original "Fat Boy" Escort and this being my first Beltronics RD, I was wondering what kind of repair percentage there is between the big two. Anyone know of any stats?
