Any doubt about fitting it yourself then don't ask the supplier to recommend someone for the job.

Take your time to plan it out before you start fitting the system, practice run all the cables first.

Radar/Laser head Fitting.

In my case I mounted the head behind the grill and mounted the unit as high as possible. Its important that it has a clear view forward if you want the laser detector to work and very important that no metal is in front of the radar head.

The Radar Detector head installed behind the grill.

You get a fair bit of cable to connect the radar/laser head to the control unit, there is a connector between the two and the connectors that allow the cable to connect to the control. This is to allow you to go through a small hole in the bulkhead first.

Display and Control unit fitting.

Once the radar/laser head is fitted you need to sort out the inside of your car and where you plan to place the control unit and display, take your time on this one, keep it low and out of sight to outsiders but in a place where you can see them

The STiR display is fitted next to the ashtray and the control unit next the instrument console.

There is a chose of holders for the Beltronics STiR display, a fitted dash mount frame or stick on mounting. I close the fitted frame and cut into the plastic trim as it not only looked better, but it looked like part of the vehicle. You get a template to make life easy in cutting the hole.

You get plenty of screws and a good mounting bracket for all the components. Tie wraps, Velcro and sticky foam are also included.

Powered Speaker and Junction Box

Both of these items were hidden down under the centre counsel, you don't need access to them in any way and the speaker is plenty load enough to deal with the trim.

Warning LED

There is a warning LED you can place anywhere to show you the status of the system.

USB Port

Decide on the best place to fit the USB update port, I went for the glove box as the best location.

Overall installing the Beltronics STiR Plus took about an three hours and was quite easy to do, it looks great in the positions I place all the kit..

GPS Antenna

This was easy to hide under a thin part of the dashboard.

Programming and activating

After fitting you need to set up the system, you need a PC to do this and the software off the Beltronics Website, it is easy to do and allows you to update the fixed locations and also the software such as which radar bands to activate. K band fro example has been segmented to help reduce false alarms and this works very well.

Can we recommend it, YES, we can.

This is a very good stealth install kit with a stunning performance that out performs the rest at an exceptional price. Combining GPS and Radar/Laser detection in a install system is the way to go, False alarms are infrequent and easy to deal with. Radar detection range is very good considering how hard a Gatso is to detect, the GPS adds that extra advantage. Software updates are easy to do.
