I don't have a V1 (yet). I was wondering, are the software updates something that I can do or do I need to ship the unit somewhere? I sure hope that I can do them. If I can update my own GPS unit, I don't see why I can't do firmware updates on a radar detector. Additionally, wouldn't it be nice if VR could do remote updates/diagnostics/etc. to the V1 over the wire (i.e., the internet)? You go to their website, plug in your V1 via USB and they would either automatically or manually update your V1. Sweeet.
