I've had a V965 for about five years. It finally died on me. It's been giving me a lot of low volts and reboots. So I orderd a new V995 from Amazon, and it came last night. I have three questions about it so far.
1. Compared to my old detector, this thing seems LOUD. I had to turn the volume down to the lowest setting, and it still seems a bit too loud. Is this normal?
2. Compared to my old detector, the 995 doesn't seem like it beeps as fast as my 965 did. It went off last night and based on the speed at which it was beeping, I expected the signal strength meter to be about half way. It was pegged all the way. Is this normal?
3. What should I expect in the way of false Laser alerts? None of the cops in my area use lidar. In the entire five years that I owned my 965, I remember three Laser alerts, and they were all when the sun was low in the sky. I got one tonight on the way home tonight, and it's an overcast day.
