    Acura MDX 2015 install?

    Hi all,

    Been a while since I last logged here in but my LI has saved me quite a few times over the past few years (still currently installed on my Honda Pilot). A long article that would be.

    New 8.9 LI heads?

    I noticed that there is a newer more powerful 8.9 version of the LI heads.

    Can two of these newer stronger 8.9 LI heads be added to a 8 version cpu with two of the previous 8.8(?) heads?

    Will...

    Re: V1 vs Redline, which one should I get?

    It has been quite a few weeks now and I am still running both my Redline and my V1 together.

    I have to add to this thread (and it should come as no surprise to anyone in the know) that some recent...

    Re: V1 vs Redline, which one should I get?

    Maybe so - but at least on those two cases it was not noticeable interference. Each detector behaved for all practical purposes the same whether the other one was on or not.

    Re: speed traps on Christmas

    Still a bit odd - I drove 600 miles in California to Reno, Nevada and back middle of last week (between Xmas and New Year).

    I only saw a few LEO's the whole way - a fraction of what I normally see...

    I'm in California and I drive here a lot through the Sierra's - lot's of hilly winding roads up there BTW. The LEO's really like those long fast curves on the downhill side of the mountains.

    Regarding the "off-axis" claims. I'm in CA too and drive a lot in the Sierra's with winding roads everywhere and CHP hiding around curves shooting Ka band.

    Re: V1 vs Redline, which one should I get?

    Wow - you have owned both before and you want a Redline?

    I can think of several reasons why I would take the V1 if I had to be limited to having only one:

    1. Cheaper by $100+
    2. Better - more...

    Nobody in my experience is using POP - so I'd just forget about it if I were you. You are much more likely to get struck by lightning.

    But IMO anything that filters out those traffic speed sensors...

    Not sure about your own "hood" but around here (I'm in N. CA) they have seemed to almost disappear for several days before and right after Xmas day.

    Try simply phoning them for issues or a special request like that.

    I did to get my packages shipping number and they were very courteous and friendly to me on the phone. No problems at all.

    I have had a total of 4 Escort Passports over the years and the latest model that I use is the Redline.

    Re: V1 vs Redline, which one should I get?

    Any RD mounted on the front of the car and not shooting out through the windshield glass will always have an edge over the ones that do (like V1 and Redline).

    Re: Valentine 1 behind the tint strip

    If you make a "heat shield" carefully it not only hides it from the sunshine but it also hides it from prying eyes too (which might help you to hang on to it longer).

    Re: V1 settings tweaks??? What are yours?

    SO, at the risk of hearing the "interference" defense again I have noted that the V1 is now beating the Redline by a few seconds with each genuine Ka encounter since I turned off the V1's Ka guard...

    SAVVY does not mute the first startup beeps.

    Also each new alert is at full volume for the first one or two beeps (as well as when additional bogeys arrive) when SAVVY is working. You always get...

    So, I have an LI and also (brand new) a V1 with the SAVVY cable. I have not connected the V1 to the LI because of these issues that you describe. (See the thread on this)

    Re: V1 settings tweaks??? What are yours?

    Re: Savvy...

    I think SAVVY is simply making the V1 aware of your speed and it assumes that you want it to be louder when you are driving faster.

    Which makes sense to me and is a nice additional feature. But is...
