I've just finished my second week with the two RDs in my C6. The SR7 is set to spec mode and the V1 is on little "L". No detectable interference issues yet.
1. As expected the V1 K band detection is significantly better than the SR7. Some of my 3 and 4 bogey falses are not even showing up on the SR7. However; all the real police kband hits are always alerted to by the SR7. It hasn't missed one yet.
2. Ka detection is nearly identical except for some reason the "junk" filter will kick in on some Ka signals that the SR7 never alerts too. I've got a couple of vids of that happening. The "junk" alert was popping up from time to time during the 2 weeks before the SR7 was reinstalled so I'm pretty sure this is not an interference issue.
3.Ka detection from the rear is pretty close as well except the SR7 obviously can't tell me its from behind. The V1 arrows do that. But the Escort will still give a weak alert so I can't say I would ignore this signal if I was using the SR7 alone. Interesting event this morning. The SR7 got a full five second jump on the V1 during a Ka 35.500 alert. At first I thought it might be interference but the SR7 beat the V1 that time. On the flip side. a few times I've had a 1 dot Ka alert from the V1 that the SR7 has completely ignored. This has happened many times.
4. After a couple of days I switched the V1s volume off. The constant alerts were irritating and since the V1 display is line of sight I can see the arrows as they come on and then if the SR7 chimes in I'll already know what direction it's coming from. However, If I'm in "sterile cockpit" mode I run the V1 at full volume.
So far having spec mode and arrows is phenomenal. I also love the V1 on constant mute so I can glance at the K band alerts if I like and see how long it takes the SR7 to alert. Right now the SR7 seems to require 3 to 4 dot signal strength on the V1 to give an alert unless the ramp up is severe then they go off together. I can clearly see where the V1 has the advantage in detecting Instant On traps.
I've got a medicore video of the SR7 and V1 at full volume picking up Ka from a HCC Crown Vic on the opposite side of the Beltway. It's pretty wild having all those alerts going at once. LOL!
I think I'm going to bank all the V1/SR7 vids on my website so I don't have to upload them to youtube. Plus I'm not sure they're very interesting to a broad audience. Especially the J falses. When I get five or six I'll update.
