I am considering getting an new detector and I want the best. I live in CT so leakage is not an issue. I live in the backwoods, I would like the safety of laser detector but ive heard the V1 and the STi don't really give quick accurate laser detection. That a side I live in the hills with lots of curve and not a lot of traffic, some highway driving. From this review (RadarTest.com - Best radar detector reviews from the world's most respected authority.) it seems that the STi is dominate but it it somewhat outdated and i wanted to put it to the pro's. From what ive read on here there are STi fanatics and V1 fanatics. So which is better and why... and yes i've been reading and searching the forum. The Sti is also $100 more so is it worth it.?
