I just got back from a 2500 mile road trip traveling with my V1 and STi. About 15 saves and no tickets!!! I saw a bit of everything on this trip, even the dreaded 33.8Ghz Ka while using my STi. I haven't updated my STi for the 33.8Ghz fix yet, but I had no problem detecting 33.8Ghz in my only encounter.
The closest call came when I was crossing the state line from Alabama to Florida and I saw the LEO raise his laser gun and point it at my car. I know I was going about 80 MPH at the time, but as soon as I saw him raise the laser gun I was on the brakes hard. I guess I got my speed down fast enough, or they didn't clock me because they didn't pull me over. I was using the STi at the time, but never received a laser alert.
Both the V1 and STi ATE up the Ka!!! I was getting around 1-2 miles of detection when the LEO's were using CO. And MOST of my encounters in the south were CO.
The V1 correctly J'd out about 5 alerts, but did fail to J out 2 cheap RD's. Not too bad considering the total number of junk detectors I encountered on my trip.
The K band drones around Atlanta GA got real old as they were setup about every 2 miles over a 15 mile or so stretch. The bogey counter on the V1 came in handy during this part of my trip because I did find a few LEO's hiding near the drones. I also saw some Ka band drones in TN.
I had a few Ka encounters with the V1 that were a bit close and 1 K band encounter that was a bit close with my STi. Overall both detectors performed very well. The STi is such a user friendly RD that I REALLY gained a whole new level of respect for it on my trip. The filtering in Autoscan was simply brilliant!
The longest detection goes too........ the V1. I picked up some Ka for what seemed to be about 5 miles on I75 in FL. I am guessing he was running 34.7Ghz Ka since I saw a few of them using this on my way down to FL with the STi.
