Maybe Im officially a zombie now but I am glad I went ahead and demoed the V1 against all the negative feed about performance around corners and here's why:
I was driving tonight doing about 15 over PSL on a state highway there is intermittent traffic on the road so I am never completely unshielded. As I aproach a pretty significant corner that comes around about 60 degrees into a long uphill I get that blood chilling braa-braap and the arrow lights ahead one bogey, I get on the brakes and the V1 quickly ramps up to 3/4 alert as I round the corner and continue uphill as I crest the top alert is full and about 300yds away in the median is an SC stater, looked like road reflectors at first but as I approached were clearly parking lights on the cruiser. I would say the V1 was alerting for a good 30-45 seconds from first tone to the arrows moving to the side. I didnt check the odometer but I would figure just outside of .6miles and this was a serious corner, it did at least as good if not better than my x50 and I believe my x50 was a factory freak so I am very impressed with the V1 right now. Now all of my friends no longer make fun of box on my windshield, they know it works and the understand why I have it now.
One thing that annoyed me was it started to ghost as we approaced the cruiser it picked up two as we were about 50yds away and picked up a third as I was even with the car. Pretty sure it wasnt stalker dual because rear alert dropped off within 100yds after passing the cruiser.
Anyways thought I should share that, Im running 3.856 mounted high behind the tint, and Im pretty sure Ive found my x50's replacement.
