    Default V1 Laser Diodes

    If I understand correctly, the newest V1s have 3 laser diodes as opposed to 6 found in the older models. My question is- how are 3 diodes as effective as 6? I am so technically challenged that if anyone asked me what a diode was, I would probably answer an ode on the way to cashing out. Oh well. Drive safely and happy motoring.

    The newer V1's have a great big lense over the laser detection diodes, whereas the older (1.7) v1's didn't.

    The detection diode looks exactly like a LED, but it detects instead of lighting up. Here's a pic of the HUGE lens. http://img157.echo.cx/my.php?image=v1front1qp.jpg
