STi-R Plus. Portable?

I'm looking into an STi-R Plus but I wanted to know if I can take it with me car to car. I'm new to the detector world so flame suit on. I used a friends 9500ix for awhile and it came in handy. I am in the highway a lot and do travel into VA where they are illegal, so it not being detected is somewhat needed. Any other opinions? I also do a lot of highway driving to and from school. It's an hour ride to Baltimore and an hour back all in the highway. I also drive in the city but not as much. A detector that world equally well in both highway city is preferred.

Very disappoint.

don't know about there, but cops here use laser more than anything. my laser jammer has saved me crazy amounts of ticket money since i got it. just something to consider as you're gonna spend some good coin on it anyway.

Well, I'm also looking at the Redline since the STi-R isn't a windshield mounted. Anyone have any experience with it in the city?

If you are driving on 495 and 95 in MD, I would get something with Jamming capabilities, MSP and most counties are using laser

I drive 495,270,and 95 to Baltimore. What I would like is for the radar detector to not be detected by RDD's.
