First, let me say that Iím eagerly awaiting the arrival of my latest order from VR. As I was reviewing my conversation with the saleswoman it occurred to me that what she said might be useful to some. It seems that there is a possibility that those who had other RDís, like the Escort or Bel's, used the power adapters for those units with their new V1. According to her this could cause the ďEĒ to show up on the display. Iím not an engineer, but this seems possible, considering the units have been designed around its own components.
Now, out of all the conflagration of which RD is the best, the focus has always been on performance, and rightly so. There is however, another consideration, and that is the accessories (if this has been mentioned previously, forgive the repetition). The other two or three are good detectors, but lack the versatility of the V1. This brings me back to my latest order. I ordered the concealed display. Iím an older man, and for some time now have had to wear glasses. I find that I have to keep my eyes on the road more now, then when I didnít wear glasses. Having a remote display positioned in my field of view will keep me from turning my head to see what the threat is, as well as how close it is. Great advantage for this ďsemi-old fart.Ē This may or may not have been part of the original design intent, but it is a practical consideration for those like me.
This is not intended to ignite another fire. There are those that might be looking for a RD, and with all the sometimes-overwhelming information, the accessories are sometimes overlooked.
