This is a very expensive unit, however, it is extremely reliable and has saved me numerous times. I have owned other high end Beltronics radar detectors and this one incorporates the same quality. I opted not to go for the EscortLive service. Reliing on other drivers to log speed traps doesn't appeal to me, and if its got GPS, they prob are tracking my driving habits which I don't particularly care for - plus its like $100 per year. Overall you will be please with this unit. By the time you avoid one speeding ticket, the unit pays for itself. Good luck!
BEL Beltronics STI MAGNUM
Radar and Laser Detector
Exclusive TotalShield TechnologyOur TotalShield technology makes the STi MAGNUM completely invisible against any type of radar detector detector. Not only will it keep you unseen by the current VG2 and Spectre, it will be completely undetectable by any future threats as well.
DSP: Digital Signal ProcessingOur patented AutoScan feature continuously analyzes all incoming signals and automatically rejects unwanted false alarms. This gives you, the driving enthusiast, the perfect balance of long-range detector performance without those annoying false alarms.
Next Generation of Laser ProtectionMultiple laser sensors, strategically positioned in the case, continually search for laser gun signals. Maximum range, including superior off-axis protection, is standard.
Easy-To-Use Options and ControlsThe STi is simple to use and operate. Preset at the factory, the STi is optimized for short or long trips in North America. However, you can customize up to 9 features to meet your specific driving style.

I love the fact that this radar detector is not detectable. I would recommend it to others as very reliable. The price was steep but something I have been considering for the last year. I would say that the only improvements to this would be to have the detector with the direction arrows as to the threat and a cord that is long enough to run up around the windshield and come down by the dash so it is not seen hanging down in the middle of the windshield.
