    Re: Those with Savvy....

    Does anyone know if there's a splitter available to run two accessories from one OBD port? I have a Garmin Ecoroute already connected and would like to run a savvy.
  2. Re: Does lean angle impact effectiveness of jammers on bikes?

    The few times I've met a cop in mid-corner while riding "enthusiastically", they've been far too slow to even trigger their radars before I'm past. But our roads are usually much twistier than your...

  4. Re: Any Kiwis ( New Zealanders ) found the new Speed vans yet?

    The new vans have Redflex cameras running K band. They are very hard to get decent warning range on. My V1 gives about 100 metres.
    Turn on K band and put up with the falsing.
  5. Re: The best Radar Detector for the RedFlex K- band photo radar ????

    I get around 100 metres warning with my V1 (3.872). It's not enough for open road speeds so I rely on the MK 1 eyeball.
    Luckily our camera vans are quite easy to spot and there isn't many if them.

    If you're missing them, come up to Nelson. They're likes flies on a sheeps arse.
    Otherwise, there have been cutbacks on frontline patrol cars around NZ. I guess the cops are concentrating on urban...

    Re: Lazer and real success on your bike

    I use a jammer that's around 10 or 12 years old. It was sold here as a Masterblaster. This unit has saved me more times than I can count.

    Re: Metallic paint

    That's the other option, but it will reduce the room in the bag.

    I was hoping someone had knowledge of the paint issue.

    Thanks anyway.

    There's talk of detectors becoming illegal here. If so, I want to hide the V1 inside the fairing panels of my bike.
    The question is, the paint is a very subtle metallic finish, it can only be seen...

    Re: LEO as a Rabbit?

    Our New Zealand cops are just as likely to take your licence number and post you a ticket. We also have owner liability, so someone always has to pay.

    Re: V1 randomly restarting

    That's almost certainly interruption to the power supply. I've had it happen a few times in the past. Try a new power cord or jury rig a power socket and use the cigarette kighter plug.

    Re: Further analysis of the V1 performance at GOL 2009

    Excluding the unit with Ka guard off negates the analysis as far as I'm concerned. I have Ka guard off all the time and falses are minimal where I drive/ride. This may differ for others, but having...

    26 mph over the limit in a construction zone? Clearly you have nevr worked in that situation. There's a time and place for speed, that wasn't one of them.

    V1 and vibration

    I have my V1 on an anti-vibration mount on my personal bike. But has anyone had reliability issues with their V1 on rigid mounts on bikes or, say, behind the grill in a car?

    My previous 'fat' V1 was a chatty little bugger. Then I turned off X and K bands when our cops stopped using them.
    I turned them off when I received my current V1 too. Recently our cops got Redflex...

    I would do that, but mine's dead on X and K bands. so I can't sell it in that condition. So I thought I'll get it repaired and upgraded.
