So I just sold my V1 on ebay and purchased a 9500ix. The V1 was driving me nuts on my daily commute going of like crazy due to some sort of traffic monitoring devices installed along my route. Of course, as soon as I get my 9500ix, big time buyers remorse. All I ever read is how V1 is THE RD to own. Bumming me out...until today.
Driving through town the usual "Your speed sign" is up on the main drag. They move this silly thing all over town and it would drive the V1 nuts. It would read like 3 signals from all the bouncing around. Well as I pass it with my 9500ix, I notice 2 KA signals (same ole thing as the V1 I figured). But then I noticed each signal was really strong so I thought, I'll just poke along at their ridiculous 35mph until I see whats going on. As I pass the sign, one signal goes away and what do you know but the other sticks. There is the local LEO hiding in the shadows waiting to get the first guy ignoring the PSL. This is exactly why I own a detector. I can't understand why they are trying to ticket some working shmuck at 5am in morning trying to make his way into the office. There are 3 cars on the road at this time in the morning and all the kiddies are still sleeping soundly.
I think I am well past my buyers remorse and won't be taking all the nice features my 9500ix offers. They are MORE than gimmicks.
