Edit: I added that the price includes installation.
The latest gossip indicates that Bel does not plan to sell the STi-R in North America. My hypotheses is that Bel thinks that there will be glut of STi radar detectors being sold on eBay by owners who want to upgrade to the remote version, and that this could possibly impact STi sales both in North America and abroad.
As for myself, I have no plans to replace my STi with the STi-R since I simply do not need the STi-R's potentially totally hidden possibilities. Obviously others in areas where RDs are illegal to own/use likely will have different opinions.
The above observations are the point of my poll. This poll is open to all current STi users, and is open to any North American radar detector user who potentially would like to purchase an undetectable and fully concealed radar detector even though the price is likely to be around $1500 USD which includes installation.
Thus, this is a survey of sorts. Hopefully the poll results may convince Belscort to offer the STi-R for sale within North America if the poll results don't suggest that there will be a glut of STi radar detectors being offered for sale on eBay.
