    If you're receiving an alert, does it really matter if it's coming from the front or from behind? I mean, what's the advantage....you're still going to slow down. And the LEO's reading is still going to be the same, so what are you going to do if it's coming from the rear....NOT apply the brakes to try to fool the officer or not give yourself away (in which case, you won't be slowing down any)?

    This is a nice feature, and I think it does show the reliability of the detector performing it's assigned function......but to me, they are over-rated. ESPECIALLY if it's this feature that causes it to be $100 more than the X50 or RX65!

    you did careful review (especially on the net, maybe at looking at radar reviews off google searches) and did a ton of reading before making a decesion on which radar detector to purchase. you bought an x50 after seeing it win so many awards and getting so much priase all over from a general glance at the rd industry. you might have also fallen in love with your x50 but still must wonder and lust for something better....

    which brings u to thoughts of the v1...u ended up here at the forums and started to see all these zombies :shock: walking around with extreme loyalty and sincere love for their precious.

    ok i realize im losing it and need to go to sleep, but the bottom line is, yes its true.....the v1 is the best no matter where you are (as long as u got half a brain and can program it) and those arrows make it the champ.

    not hating on your x50...its DEFINATELY A TOP NOTCH RD, but try a v1 out and see how you like...i bet you turn into a :shock: before you know it. just my 3.826 cents :shock:

    i'll give you one of the many reasons why arrow's rule - you are driving on the interstate - you get a Ka alert!

    Now in one scenario the leo could be behind you with his forward antenna on - so you are picking him up at a great distance! If you dont see him in your rear view dont give him a chance to catch up is my theory!

    Next you get a Ka alert it points to the front - the LEO is coming the other way or is sitting up ahead waiting to pick you off! Either way you slow down but you know he's in front of you! If he's got a sweet hiding spot well the V1 is a sweet spot hunter!

    Without the arrows you'd be looking around forever wondering where they where!
