    The V1 will always give some people more information than they can handle but 2 eyes with 20/20 are always better than 1 eye with 20/20.

    I have to admit that one thing I LOVE about driving my wife's car is that when the RX65 alerts me (when on Auto mode) it is more than likely a REAL threat. I cant wait for GPS detectors to come out from Escort and Bel.

    Actaully, I find myself doing just the oppisite. I am only running 1 at a time now- because I dont like having 2 in my windshield for ppl to look at. I find that the v1's detection of K band astonishing. Yes it falses like hell. But driving yesterday I got about a 8 mile warning on a cop. Yes, it flashed ^ and then went dead for 10 seconds, then flashed ^ and went dead another 10 seconds. But slowly started creeping up the scale. Then I passed a huge falsing point and still knew that there was a cop up ahead.

    I guess I will make my choice as to which I keep as I send out my v1 to RJT this week for testing against the atlanta stealth. I will be alone with the x50 all this week The loser, will end up going to my g/f
