The Redline has a flux capacitor and uses 1.21 gigawatts of electricity.

the new redline has an excellent ramp up. nothing like the older redlines. this is very accurate and is really good now...maybe have your unit checked out or maybe you have an old unit. either way, ive heard nothing but good things from members on the redline rampup

I would also add this. I think the Flux capacitor answer is as accurate as this one. It doesn't make sense that something about the hardware precludes filtering out certain frequencies. Didn't the original STi Driver already do that?

So, you're sticking to that? What's the difference? This doesn't make sense.

I thought I answered it, must have been elsewhere. Memory is the limitation.

is it possible to get rid of useless things such as voice alerts, and SWS to make the firmware fit? Can we get this request at least given some attention, there are alot of us STi Magnum owners out there and we would appreciate not being left out to dry with a good product like this one... How is it you were able to fit the feature into the RX65 and not this one?

I am very disappointed with you Beltronics!!!

I just got back into this hobby a couple of months ago and bought a STi Magnum because I needed the defense from RDDs (I travel eastern Canada once in a while).

I read countless articles comparing the STi Magnum and Redline and I mostly heard that they are identical. I bought the Bel as I loved their products going back to the 90's.

You will lose a customer for life if you do not fix this and give us BS. I plan to join the awesome Escort Live network soon, so if its a business case that supports the slightly costlier RL, make us STi Magnum folks buy a Live cord from you.

Just bring us BS! My wife is already complaining about all the false K signals the STi gets and is about to rip it off the windshield and cancel my credit card!!!

Please Beltronics, please!!!!

The lack of these options on the STi Magnum is not a business decision. The STi Driver/Magnum's hardware is not capable of having them installed. RedLine is not a clone of Magnum. RedLine is an entirely different product with different hardware.

If it is not already, enable TSR to help reduce K band false alerts. You can eliminate the regular X and K false alerts you encounter by using Escort Live with your Magnum via a SmartCord Live bluetooth enabled power cord.
