Beltronics STi Magnum Review
Beltronics was the first to design a radar detector that cannot be detected by any police RDD (radar-detector-detector). The STi detects radar at great distance away, and this is the detector designed for Canadian drivers.
Use of a radar detector is prohibited in Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Maritimes, and all Territories. This makes Beltronics STi Magnum the no.1 choice for drivers who live in these provinces or plan to travel across Canada.
Like any other Beltronics radar detectors, the STi Magnum gives you 3 sensitivity settings - Highway Mode for maximum range, AutoScan Mode and City No-X Mode for balanced performance and false signal rejection.
We recommend hardwiring the Bel STi Magnum with a direct-wire cord or direct-wire SmartCord for cleaner and more concealed install.
The latest 2010 production model with firmware revision A6M9 includes Traffic Signal Rejection (TSR) setting that suppress annoying radar traffic drones that check highway traffic flow regularly. It also includes audio ramp-up update which makes the STi much more responsive to change in strength of radar signals.
This is no doubt the best overall windshield mounted radar detector in Canada.Our Price: $529.00

Escort Passport 9500ix Review
Escort Passport 9500ix is the improved version over its predecessor 9500i, the first GPS capable radar detector from Escort Radar. Passport 9500ix now adds USB updatable camera database as well as intelligent "Auto-Learn" on top of its existing "True-Lock" feature that locks out false alerts.
Many compare the Escort Passport 9500ix to Bel GX65 from its brother brand Beltronics. Aside from the "Auto-Learn" feature, 9500ix and GX65 share identical design based on the "M4" platform, offering the same radar performance and Defener camera database.
Like Beltronics GX65, the Passport 9500ix can be detected by OPP and Quebec Police's Spectre RDD radar-detector-detector. We can only recommend the 9500ix to those who plan to use it in BC, Alberta, and Saskatchewan only.
How does the Escort Passport 9500ix compare to Beltronics STi Driver? The only advantage 9500ix has over Bel STi is the GPS True-Lock and camera database. Bel STi uses more advanced dual-antenna M3 platform that offers better range and response on radar detection. In addition, STi Driver is undetectable, ideal for Ontario and Quebec.
The Passport 9500ix package includes the detector, windshield mount, coiled SmartCord, camera database serial number and KeyCode, and user manual.Our Price: $559.00
