Is it possible to self-repair the dead speaker in my V995? A quick search on the net show this to be an all-to-common problem for Bel owners.
Also, has anyone been able to get 5 years out of a radar detector? My V995 lasted only three, my Valentine 1 only a little over two, and an old high-end Cobra lasted only two months past the one-year warranty. I find this odd. I have several 8-10 year old servers still happily in service; my 8 year old Garmin VGPS sits outdoors everyday on the dash of an open top jeep and it still runs great. My Garmin iQue GPS Palm Pilot also sits on the same dash -- it is four years old and still works fine.
$400 for a one-trick-pony device is pretty pricey in today's world of electronics.
Just wondering why my radar detectors don't last as long as my other gadgets?
