Ok my V1 has cr*pped the bed yet again... well somewhat.
The key is it still 'works', but the knob to turn on the unit and change the volume doesnt shut off. Meaning I can go all the way counter-clockwise and there is no click to where it shuts the unit off... its simply not there.
Now this ticks me off because I was always really easy on that POS design feature (anyone who has one understands it feels akward and cheap).
Last night I turned off the V1 and took it out of the car... I felt the click and it turned off (just like it should), this morning I popped her in, and the damn thing turned on... when it was completely in the 'off' position of the volume knob, and there is no longer a 'click' to turn the unit on.
But it still works [volume control] (well it works to my V1's somewhat shabby ability), so I certainly am not sending it back to VR after hearing the horror stories that have been coming out of that place... My V1 is sporadic on X&K and marginal on Ka, but many darn units coming out of there these days are simply terrible.
I will hopefully take pictures tommarow so you guys can see a V1 in the 'OFF' position turned on.
