    What is the new HW4 CPU and when is it available?

    The new HW4 CPU is the latest version of the ALP CPU and it has been shipping for a few weeks now. For laser protection there is no functional difference between the older HW2 and the newest HW4 CPU. The HW4 CPU adds additional memory which is needed for new features that will be releasing in the future for our customers with integrated radar configurations. The only physical change is that we have switched to a new Black Enclosure vs, the standard grey enclosures.

    Before looking at an Escort Radar Detector you should really check out Uniden Detectors.. Uniden R1 & R3 are the best performing radar detectors for the money.

    Thanks Tom.

    I'm assuming that support for integrated STi-R+ and 9500Ci antenna's will no longer be offered - just NR DSP and Radenso HD+ ?

    Fingers crossed that isn't the case, I have a couple of STi-R heads and rg modules.

    In the US we stopped selling them 2+ years ago. We will not stop the support of them but NR has really become a much better solution and it will grow in time.

    will there be an upgrade program? Will the STi-R+ still work if upgrading to the new unit?

    Its still new but in time we will offer an upgrade to those that need it. Most BSM Filtering is done in the antenna and a Sti-R Plus has very poor filtering so you might eventually want to upgrade to a newer NR DSP head.
