Today, I received my updated V1 (version 3.825) from Valentine. I was impressed with the quick turnaround and the packaging of the updated unit. I was very anxious to test the V1 against my new X50.
I have read so many conflicting reviews that I decided to run my own experiment. I installed both units and drove around some known radar sources. Immediately upon connecting power to my V1, I got nearly a constant X warning with the rear arrow. No matter where I drove there was this consistent X beep. My first response was that the new software/hardware update had somehow ruined my V1.
I unplugged the X50 and presto---no more X false alerts! It appears that I cannot run both units in a side-by-side comparison. Have any of you had similar experiences?
