The old STi-R came and went before most of us realized it's true capabilities. The introduction of the 9500ci with it's GPS functions totally eclipsed those little extras hidden in the STi-R that made it the superior performer.
Well, now we should know better. The STi-R Plus returns with Band Segmentation and RDR (confirmed by Escort) and GPS capabilities to boot! Those same features activated in the STi-R smoked a V1 in a Ka-Band Quick Trigger test, and outdetected a 9500ci by a considerable margin in range.
If I remember correctly, the old STi-R also had very good Ka Ramp up.[replacer_img]
Only testing will tell, but the combinations of features on this bad boy should yield........
Provided the features in the 'Plus' hold true to the old STi-R, and the new GPS functions do nothing to conteract the same, I say welcome back to the King.[replacer_img]
- Longest Detection range on X, K, and in particular Ka.
- Quickest reaction times to Instant On (QT)
- Fewer Falses on X & K (compliments of GPS & TSR) and Ka (Cobras locked out with Band Seg 1)
- RedLight / Speed camera alerts
