    Default Chirps?

    I had several Bel rds in the past and the one thing that drove me nuts were the chirps given off upon detecting radar. I dont know if the modern Bel's still have the chirps or have gone to a tone alert. For those of you who might already have a STI, what are the sound alerts like? Drive safely and happy motoring.

    Here is a video I made where you can hear a Ka, K, and POP alert at full tone!
    An excellent demonstration

    My older Bel985 sounds the same, I believe this unit was a rx65?, I believe the STi is the same.

    The STi has the same chirps as your probably used to.

    it is a BEL Vector 995 but that detector sounds the same as other high en BEL detectors including the BEL rx65 and BEL STi

    duh! I should have noted your signature. Thanks for pointing that out, certainly appears that all Bels follow the same type of alert tone/chirp.
