Re: Bel radar comparison

I have the 745sti+.  It's nice and sensitive but I get falses out the
ying-yang.  It beeps at me about 4-5 times in just about every mile of
highway driving.  It even beeps at me on one lane country roads 5 miles from
Nowhere, West Virginia.  It drives me nuts.  On rare occasion, it even gives
me warning about an actual REO.

I think I need to send it back to see if anything can be done with it.
