    Default Comparisons between x50 & V1

    Alright guys, I have just gotten a hold of my 3rd x50. I am going to be keeping both the x50 & the v1.

    As of now I am having trouble concealing my x50. I have my v1 mounted high, and the x50 in the bottom left of my windshield. An officer would not be able to notice it if he stopped me, by if he leaned to the front of my car it is clearly visable. Any ideas on how to conceal this? I can not mount it high! It is such a long detector I have trouble looking up and reading it, not to mention it looks a little bit stupid


    I can already tell you that with my V1 mounted high, and my x50 mounted to the side, they conflict with eachother. The v1 will beep X band constantly at the x50, but the x50 seems unaffected by the v1. (Veil guy, can you tell me why you didnt have this problem in your 05 review?)

    Anyways, I am willing to make some test runs between the two so people can get an idea what are some of the pro's and cons with each. All you need to do is tell me what you would like to see tested, and I will try my best

Not too bad, but when powered up it says "drive carefully travel safely". Very annoying.

    Sabr, I was thinking about doing that, but I really REALLY didnt want to sacrifice that much of the windshield, I want to be able to see the road

    Few things wrong with that.
    1) I go to a college in the city where people will see blue, know what detector is, and steal it.
    2) A cop will be more likely to notice the blue. I am all about keeping a low profile.

    to problems with that
    1. u shouldnt park the car where it could get broken into
    2. Cops Love to see people with RD gives them something to think about then the donut shop
    3. Helping out ur fellow drivers/ drivers see that u Have an RD u should watch when u put ur brakes on how many people slow down (i do this for fun sum times)
