Here's some pics of my intall by Sante Fe Auto Sound.
So far I'm having some issues by using the "guts" of the 9500ci display in the RVM. It doesn't seem to be displaying some info that would be able to be displayed on the STi-R Plus display. The previously mentioned problem of not displaying "STi-R Plus" on startup isn't that big of a deal for me, but "Threat Display" option (shows mult. detected bands and strength of each) doesn't seem to be working. It does display the "Meter Display" and "Tech Display" fine (displays numeric frequency of the threat). I may be sending my RVM back to radarmirror.com to have him put the "guts" of the STi-R Plus display in it to make it function completely.
Another problem is that even with the volume "all the way up" the voices/warnings don't seem that loud to me even with the dedicated external speaker and can be drowned out by "moderately loud" background music. The volume on my 9500ix is MUCH louder than the STi-R Plus. The same Belscort type of speaker hooked up to the LI however can be VERY lound and the potentiometer is turned down quite a ways from full volume... Does anybody have an idea about the problem regarding this???
I have the overseas version of the STiR-Plus as I bought it before the NA version became available BTW...
As you will notice the backlight for the STi-R Plus control module is currently red. I most likely will be sending it in to Belscort to be replaced with blue backlights to match my car better. When it is re-installed, I will also have them intall the remote bicolor LED indicator in the instrument cluster near my digital speed display.
The LI jammers in the front are just "pressure fitted" in the space cut in the grill for now and quite snug (They did a great job cutting my grill and it looks better/stealthier than I thought it would! They couldn't get the LI brackets to work with my front bumper/grill as there was nowhere close or solid enough for them to attach it to. They may use some sort of "glue" to hold them even more secure (some type of glue that can be deactivated/released so they say). The LI jammers on the back are held in place with 3M automotive tape with a "shim" to get it closer (but not perfect) to level. I have noted some slight angulations from level and straight to the road that I will be having them address as well.
Please give any advice/comments on the intall and the above issues I'm having so far.
