(No flame wars paaaalease.) But I've tried the V1. It's obviously a great detector. (It's not perfect though. It picks up *a lot* of laser garbage. It also seems to be having a "J" alert problem for some. Don't really know how pervasive this problem is.) Is there anything that the X50 offers or does better than the V1? My final RD will be for use mainly on highways in NJ, PA and DE.
