I just got a chance to drive a car with a V1 in it today, and let me say I am very impressed with what the boys over at VR have come up with. I jumped right in the car without ever using a V1 before and clicked it on and off we went, point and shoot. Although I was only driving for a few miles on the highway I did get to take it past an X and K infested shopping mall to see how this bogey counter and fancy deet-deet function seemed to work. It alerted me to the first x-band at the same point my x50 does and then deet deet and it had the second one in its sights, then deet-deet followed by a change from beep to brap and we had the K band door opener at the grociery. It alerted me at the points that my x50 did which was normal I guess but what I really liked was the fact that it audibly lets me know of new threats. I have yet to use up all the tracking spaces on my x50's expert meter but I have always been frustrated by the fact that it doesnt tell you when it has locked onto another bogey unless it is a more threatening source than the first in which case all you get is a change in audio. But you have to be looking for the next threat if it is on the same band or a less prioritized band. A good example is from a recent road trip I had an alert on K band and started looking for a cop and see a stater with someone pulled over on the opposite side, I was fixing to speed back up but I looked up and I was suddenly tracking two K band bogeys and sure enough about 3/4 of a mile later, another smokey shooting my lane. I was still well warned but I sure liked that bogey lock feature as I have my x50 mounted as high as I can and cant constantly look up at it when it goes off.
Tip of the cap to ya Mike, its the little details that count. And this is from a NON V1 USER and definately not a zombie, and as some members may know I am often quick to criticise V1 users, I was very impressed.
