hey everyone im a new v1 user. just wanted to say i am pretty satisfied with what i've seen so far. the arrows are a neat feature. im coming from an x50 so they are new to me. i made a 220 mile round trip this weekend, but unfortunately only saw a couple of cops. i saw more in the city of waco than anything.. their city cops keep their radar guns on (ka) so it was pretty easy to spot them. like i said before, the arrows are cool, but i think my favorite part of the detector is the rear antenna. its pretty nifty to pass a cop with a forward facing gun and get a strong signal 1/2 mile away. my v1 seemed extremely quiet, probably because i was expecting falses 24/7 from reading this forum!! detection range seemed on par with the x50, maybe a little less on K band. all in all, if you are an average user, i dont know if i would recommend this unit for $100+ more, but if you are obsessed with traffic enforcement like i am, i definitely recommend this thing. 5/5 stars!!
