Hello guys and girls.
First i would like to introduce myself. My name is Yev and i'm from NY , to be precisely Yonkers NY. I got a speeding ticket last week going south on Belt Parkway and feel like if i had RD it would alert that there was a cop behind me.
So i decided to get one, and started looking for the RD. In my opinion if i were to invest money in something like this i have to get the best ! So i searched and locked down to 2 RD's 1) being and STI and 2nd being 9500i , both of these RD's look very attractive to me feature-wise. STI is stealth and has a great range , 9500i has GPS and all the fun with it, but IS detectable . I know that RD's are not chased down here in NY or in fact in a whole tri-state area.
So here is my dilemma. STI would be good to have knowing its stealth , so i can use it on my trip to Canada this summer, also be able to use it in Virginia if i ever visit the DC. But then counter-question rises, how often will i be in canada or in the states where RD are prohibited ? answer 1 time a year tops.. probably..
Escort 9500i has GPS, i can lock out known falses to me, mark red light cameras in the city and it would let me know of my speed when it detects a radar.
Now here are few questions about STI... can STI detect red light cameras or is it only detecs radars from cars and stationary ( on poles or so ) .. Also how great is GPS of 9500i is it really worth it over STIs stealthiness and range ?
Whats the deal with ramp up on STI ? to be honest i never had a RD so i have no idea whats good or whats not good i will be starting from scratch on this one...can anyone please advise on detailed comparison of ramp up ( tones of beeping if i'm correct ? )
I'm trying to decide what would be the best choice, so any help is appreciate it and will be listened !
And thank you in advance to those who will help.
