I can no longer stand my POS Cobra XRS9700 detector and want to move up to a top quality detector. I've been reading and researching about the 9500i and the Sti but can't decide which. It seems from what I've read both have audio ramp up problems with the Sti's being more severe, is this correct? Also I'm not convinced that the GPS features in the 9500i like auto sensitivity are better than just switching from city to highway mode as I've read the auto mode has a lag in detection time, and the true lock features seems like a hit or miss deal. I like the idea of the Sti's dual antennas but does this translate into better range than the 9500i?
Please help me make my decision as I am split 50/50 on which one to get.
