    Re: My V1 is sick :(

    Just got my unit back from VR totally FREE OF CHARGE even though my V1 is way out of warranty! They found a bad solder joint on the display board. Gave me a tune up and even did a firmware upgrade...

    Southern California freeways

    I've heard the unspoken rule of CHP is keep it under 10 and you won't get pulled. Is this true because everyone seems to be flying and you look hopelessly slow doing PSL?

    How much heat will fry the V1?

    I noticed my V1 can get scorching hot when I'm driving under full sun on a 80-90 degrees hot day. I'll burn my finger if I touch it for more than a second. There's not much I can do about the heat...

    Re: Refurb/returned
