The days of lurking are over, I have finally registered. Since I've been reading the postings on this V1 section as well as the Escort section for the last couple months, I decided to take the plunge and order a V1! At the suggestion of someone here on the Forum, I called and ordered a refurb unit for $366 shipped. The guy that took my order said they have six orders for refurb units ahead of me but they'll ship me one as soon as one becomes available. :wink: Until then, I'm sitting tight, taking it slow in my C6 Corvette and putting my faith in my old (soon to be trashed) Bel. So who else here has ordered a refurb unit? How long did it take to arrive? Did it have the latest firmware?
