I have been hearing this lately from MANY people on this forum. If you drive a lot in the city, get the x50 / RX65. If you drive on the highway buy the V1.
Using this statement, the V1 outshines the rest. Why? I'll tell you.
City driving. maximum posted speeds are 30mph-45mph. Are you going to be driving 60-70mph in the CITY when the posted limit is 30-45mph? Any radar detector is useless in the city. You dont NEED a radar detector in the city. If the posted limit is 30, i drive 35 or so.. if the posted limit is 40, i drive 45 or so. If you are driving 50 in a 30mph, you deserve to get a ticket because you might kill some kid in the street.
The MAJORITY of speeding tickets are issued on the highways. If the general consensus is that the V1 whoops all others in highway protection, wouldnt you want to be using a detector that protects against a threat in the arena that issues the most tickets??
This is why the valentine sucks!
