    Good deal. I have the 1.8 and I'm considerig upgrading because I think that the occasional unresolved Ka alerts that I've been having lately are due to other detectors, and that would be fixed with the "J" feature. Other than that I have no complaints. If you know that POP is being used where you are, I'd say go ahead and upgrade. If not then you might want to give it a couple of weeks and see how it does. I don't think think that POP really increases sensitivity, so-to-speak. It just alerts to shorter signals.

    Yeah upgrade to POP2. WHY did you buy a V1 when you have a good detector already? You are too young to be waisting your money like that

    You could have bought a second hand return from V1 for the same price to upgrading yours. Is still has thirty day satisfaction and a year warranty. Anyway congrats.

    Brick, I am not sure if the J feature of the new V1 would help you as much as you think. After almost a week of driving with mine, I have only seen the J once. I have noticed several small K and Ka, like one or two dots, that were other radar detectors. The V1 never displayed J on those. The one time that it did display J I was not able to see any RDs in the area. The V1 does seem to false a lot, but I am quickly learning which alerts that I need to respond to. BTW, I run my V1 in L mode with Ku enabled.

    Hmm...that's interesting. Maybe the J only applies to alerts that I'm not even getting without POP. Once in a while if there's a particularly leaky detector next to me it will go nuts on Ka...three or four LEDs crazy. That's rare, though. Usually it's one or two and then it's gone.

    I disagree. I bet it depends on where you live, but the J feature is one of the best thing about the v1. I had 3 KA alerts today, 2 of them were singled out with the J feature, then the 3rd kept on going. I slowed down with the arrow pointing behind me because I was speeding, but the strength kept goin up. So I slowed down to see a highway patrol fly on by me.
