Hello fellow Electronic Countermeasures enthusiasts!
I've owned several generations of V1's and have been very pleased with them all.
I "test drove" a 9500ix and was impressed, but not enough not to send it back. The reason I was interested in it is because it has been one of my "dreams" for a number of years now to combine a V1 and a GPS receiver and a database in order to do just what the 9500ix seems to do- automatically map out and mask false alarms from stationary signal sources. But that would be quite a complicated project and I have never had time and energy to actually _do_ it instead of thinking about it.
I really, really wish Valentine Research would come out with this feature. I know they have got to be working on it.
For now I have my V1, a concealed display and a remote audio unit. I just got a 2002 Acura TL and have been scoping it out trying to figure the best way to install it.
I guess that's another area where I am tempted by the Escort products- the 9500ci. I really wish V.R. would come out with a remote mounting kit for the main unit, even if it means having to pay a bit more to have one for both front and rear. Yes, I realize that I would suffer a bit of loss of detection range due to the lower height of the receiver. But not that much I bet. and it would be worth it not to have the V1 box hanging out, tempting thrives and provoking "The Bronze"
Well, that's my introduction. I'm sure I will posting lots of questions and maybe a few answers....
