Well, my trusty V1 showed up in the mail today. Sent it back about a week and a half ago to get the upgrade. No problems with it, just figured that the POP might be nice. In the meantime, bought a RX-65 to try it out and see how the Bel stuff worked.
Overall, I liked the Bel and it seemed to work just like it should. The techy side of me liked the tech feature, just to know what the frequencies were. Saved a couple of times in town against Ka, and the range was good. But... the one time that I was out in the rural area with a few intesecting roads and got an alert, I missed the arrows. Which road was he on? Where is he?
Also, I didn't like the brightness of the smart cord alert LED at night, or that when it was in tech mode it did not ramp up other than with the sound.
Plus, it seems like my V1 has been supercharged. It may have been a bit out of tune before after 5 years, but now it is picking up known falses father away and seems way more sensitive. Either that, or the new stealth install has biased me.
I am sending in the RX-65 for the STI, which will be a back-up for the V1 in the wife's car, or for those few Canadian trips. Should be a fun comparison once that gets here.
Now where is that new jammer that is supposed to be coming out? I've got the money waiting, leaning towards a Blinder M-40 (easy service from Roy) but not wanting to jump too soon.
