I ordered a V1 and just received it today. I live in PA, but travel a lot (put 40K miles/year for leisure) around this area (NJ-mostly, NY, DE, and PA, with some occasional trips to WI). I have used Whistler for a long time (I was happy with it and gave it to my wife), and then bought a Bel 795 a few months ago. Then I started reading this forum, and finally thought it is time to get a better one. Let's see how it is gonna work.
