What a PIA on my recent installation of STI-R Plus. I donít know how I did it but some how I was able to hit the right amount of buttons to place the detector to off. I call Beltronics as the detector picks up nothing except GPS related services such as Red Light cameras. Thank God I had a knowledgeable individual who knew what I was talking about. She informed me that I needed Detector Tools to power up the detector. The problem is I own a Mac Book Pro and a Mac Pro.
I fired up Fusion on the Mac Book Pro, start Windows, down load PC version, hook up to detector, nothing. Mac wonít recognize anything hooked up to USB port in Fusion. Shut down Windows and Fusion, download Mac Beta version. Clunky interface putting detector in program mode, but it works. Only problem is there is no menu item to turn the detector on. I can update the database, etc., but thatís it. Ended up buying a cheap Windows PC to get up and running.
IMO, this is ludicrous. I canít believe I can turn off the detector off pushing a few buttons, but need a Windows based laptop to turn it back on. Very poor design.
