got my v1 today...went for 120 mile trip to compare it to my x50.
Placed it 5 inches away from x50, high mount. Did not seem to effect eachother at all during the trip.
V1 is really a nice looking detector. This thing is really built. A lot of thought went into this, and it is built to last...very substantial. The windshield mount is great....more substantial than the x50.
v1 = advanced logic mode
x50 = auto mode
city driving: v1 falsed on x and k bands like crazy. Arrows were going everywhere. At times there were 7 bogeys. X50 stayed silent about 60% of the time when v1 was falsing. The other 40% of the time, the x50 would go off, but not with such a high signal strength as the v1, and the x50 did not stay alerted to the falses as long.
Freeway driving: Occasional rare false by the V1 k and x band. Occasional flase pop on the x50. Found one cop on the freeway heading towards me. I was doing 75 mph. The x50 alerted me to Ka, and went to full strength in about 5-6 seconds. The cop was coming over a hill toward me on the oppistie side of the frwy. The V1 did not chirp at all. Not one signal blip!! This really worried me. How can the V1 miss a pure constant on Ka??? Is it from my settings?? I have no idea. It does not make too much sense...but there it was as plain as day!!
My initial impression. The v1 is nearly useless in the city. V1 plainly missed a constant on Ka band. No false pops on V1.
This is only my initial impression...ill keep going for several days, and let you guys know what else I find. Things might change, im sure.
Any comments or suggestions?????
