Beltronics STi Magnum Radar Detector Review

Overall Rating: 72 Points

Overview of the Beltronics STi Magnum

Today, all radar detectors have 360-degree protection and will detect X, K, and Ka band analog signals. However, many of them will not perform at the level you will need to warn you in time when shot by the newer digital instant on radar guns.

As a result, you need a detector that is enabled with Digital Signal Processing (DSP), which allows the detector to alert to instant on radar miles away.

This is just one of the many other features included in the Beltronics STi Magnum radar detector.

The Bel STi Magnum is categorized as a 4-Star extreme range radar detector, with 8X the capture distance of a police K and Ka radar gun.

Extreme Range Radar Detection: 8 Points

The Bel STi Magnum is built on Escort’s M3 dual feed horn antenna design while also incorporating DSP technology.

The result is a detector that can detect even the weakest K and Ka Radar miles away.

Sensitivity and Filtering: 6 Points

You’re able to manually adjust the sensitivity of your STi Magnum by selecting Highway (full sensitivity), City (Standard), and City No X mode.

Stealth Protection: 10 Points

Radar detectors are illegal in all commercial vehicles weighing over 18,000 pounds, and in all vehicles in the state of Virginia and in Washington DC.

In order to nab professional drivers and motorists who use a detector in VA and DC, police use a device called the Spectre radar detector detector (RDD).

Currently, there are only 4 detectors made today which are able to defeat the Spectre and they are the REDLiNE, the STi Magnum, the 9500ci, and the STiR Plus.

Clear Digital Voice Alerts: 10 Points

The Bel STi Magnum has clear voice alerts, providing you with the information you need without having to take your eyes off the road.

Escort Live Compatible: 5 Points

The Escort REDLiNE is Escort Live Compatible, enabling you to tap into the Escort Live community to receive real time alerts from other Escort and Beltronics users in your area by purchasing the Escort Live external interface.

Easy Advanced Programming: 8 Points

You can program your Bel STi Magnum by pressing the buttons on your detector or by using the Escort Live app on your smart phone, if you have the optional Escort Live Module installed.

You can set the color and brightness of your display, program the radar bands used in your area, adjust the filtering options and more.

High Definition Text Display: 6 Points

The STi Magnum displays radar alerts using the older text display. The display is easy to read at any angle and the brightness is adjustable.

Motorcycle Use: 8 Points

When accessorized with the proper motorcycle mount, external warning device, and weather protection, the STi Magnum becomes a great detector for your motorcycle.

Motorcycle Mounting Systems: RadarBusters offers a variety of motorcycle radar detector and cell phone mounts by Techmount, which will fit virtually any motorcycle.

External Warning Device: The STi Magnum does have an external earphone jack, which you can plug into your motorcycle sound system. However, we would recommend the Legal Speeding HARD system, which is a wireless heads up display.

Weather Protection: There are several websites that sell “motorcycle radar detector boxes,” but we don’t recommend them. Instead, go to your local CVS and buy a child’s size shower cap. It’s cheaper and will protect your detector just as well.

Warranty & Support: 10 Points

Your STi Magnum comes with Beltronics's 1-year warranty and Radar Roy's 30-day no risk money back guarantee.

Also, here on RadarBusters, Radar Roy has several articles in his help guide section to assist you in getting the most out of your detector such as: How to Maximize the Use of your Radar Detector, How to Update Your Radar Detector, and Defensive Driving Tips for Radar Detector Users.

You’re welcome to contact Radar Roy direct 24/7 by using the contact form on this website or calling our toll free number during normal business hours.

Included Accessories

The STi Magnum includes a travel case, StickyCup windshield mount, a 12-volt smart cord, and a quick reference guide.

Optional Accessories

A couple optional accessories you may want to consider when purchasing your STi Magnum are:

Escort Live External Module: Enables your Escort STi Magnum to access the Escort Live community to share real time alerts with other radar detector users in your area.

BlendMount Mirror Mount: Enables the mounting of the STi Magnum to your rear view mirror.

Best stealth detector to date August 20, 2014
Reviewer: Oracle from Central Valley  
I bought this undetectable Bel STi Driver after my Valentine V1 was both detected and confiscated by a Spectre-toting police officer.  The sensitivity is comparable to the V1's in the Ka bands.  Minor drawbacks include too much falsing in the optional POP mode, a sub-standard internal speaker, and no provision for a remote display.  Overall, I'm fully satisfied with its performance to date, and co

Excellent unit August 4, 2014
Reviewer: Scro from Northern NJ  
Great unit but I find that it overheats too quickly on hot summer days with the sun beating down on it. AC does not make a difference. On long trips I have to disconnect it to give it time to cool down. The problem may be the titanium case.

Don't Be Misled....... July 28, 2014
Reviewer: Richard from Dallas, TX  
Don't be misled by this radar detector's understated appearance.......this is a tremendous bargain by far!!  Great, long-range sensitivity, minimal false alarms in crowded city conditions and.......best of all......it is invisible to the 'radar detector-detectors' that are in use.  I commute frequently to places where radar detectors are not allowed and it is great to have the security this little
