    Re: V1 is pretty much useless

    Well, I'm not sure it's the greatest yet either. Got good Ka and K band reception...as good as or better than the 3.813. Custom Ka is really great and the V1C is super! But gotta send it back for...

    Re: How to Set Up Custom Sweeps

    Think of a radar detector like a scanner. It scans the entire police radar band(s) for a signal and then lets you know when it detects a signal on that band.

    Instead of scanning the entire Ka...

    Re: V1 is pretty much useless

    I may have to find an Android phone or tablet I can use to try the YaV1 app...at least, if it's so much better than that ios app as people are saying.
    Maybe someone will develop a better ios app...
  6. Re: When is it worth it to upgrade software for my V1?

    Depends on what you want.
    The newest version with the addition of the BT module allows you to further the customization of the V1, namely specifying what frequencies (or frequency range) you want to...

    Re: Houston, TEXAS speed survey records

    You can go to your local TXDOT office and get a copy.
    I did that up here in Lufkin. They do charge a small fee to make a copy as they will print it out on their plotter or wide-format printer...

    Re: V1 is pretty much useless

    V1 has always done right by me. I'm the original owner of the .813 and that's not my only V1 either. I have sent the V1 in a few times throughout the years and tune ups have always been done free. ...

    Re: V1 is pretty much useless

    think ghz is onto something. Your .851 is probably a 8 year old hardware/firmware. I have an .864 that I bought new from VR in 2008 and my .813 that I bought new in 2004. So that gives you an...

    from my understanding, the new V1's help with this problem with the filtering you can activate. The old Belscorts will have the same problem.

    Hey Dave, I've been away too and am back for the same reasons as you.
    Guess for you it depends if you want the traffic monitor filter and ESP. I'm still running my 3.813 and it's only $199 for the...

    Re: new V1 or do checkup/update firmware

    well, I haven't done away with my 3.813 since it was the best pre-POP version ever. I'll just stick with sending it in every 3 years or so for a tune up.

    I don't need ESP, so with that said, is...

    Re: new V1 or do checkup/update firmware

    yes, it's $200 for the upgrade, but I don't know if it's worth it.... that was my question.

    What is the latest firmware and is the 3.863 firmware as good as the latest firmware?

    Re: Wiring my new V1

    those units on the signs go out of tune all the time. they are not used to enforce speed laws, so they don't have to be constantly calibrated like the units in the cars do.

    You will also want to consider polarization. Most CB'ers that are on the road use antennas that are vertically polarized. If you put a dipole in the rollbar, it would be horizontally polarized,...
