New to the forum and relatively new to radar detectors. In December I had a Passport SRX installed in my '05 M3 convertible and I have been reasonably happy with the results (no tickets!). I have however come to read that my discrete SRX is a little past its day in terms of performance. I have read that the V1 performs much better in Highway situations (which is where I am driving 80%) and since I am really eager to have the best protection money can buy I have ordered one. I am going to compare the two over the next 30 days and I will post my findings here.
1) Has anyone had experience with these two in comparison?
2) The cops in Long Island use mostly Ka band on the Long Island Expressway, is either the SRX or the V1 known to be better with the Ka band?
3) I have heard of a variety of interesting V1 setups from w/in the rear view mirror, custom built into the visor, custom built into the head rest, to custom built on the rear deck. Which of these is the most cost effective?
4) Also, I have found online a remote mute <EBAY LINK REMOVED>
Has anyone any experience with this mute button? I am trying to cook up something interesting for my setup should the V1 prove better in Radar detection.
