    Default Just got my V1 today :-)

    Just got my V1, and i must say one word.. WoW.. what a great piece of machinery...and i dont know where all this "falsing" talk is coming from that the V1 is supposed to be doing, my X50 falsed way more. The arrows are a nice touch as well. Picked out a couple cops just while driving around this morning. I say the V1 is a keeper.

    The v1 has more sensitivity and a wider veiw, I think you are mistaking on that statement.

    Either way, great detector. Have fun with it

    Exactly.
    I have both right now... and right now the V1 is not satisfying me right now.
    Edited by me because of poor word choices :wink:

    I've now got both units, too. The X50 is clearly superior at in-town filtering. It's a very good value from what I can tell.

    I dont know what V1 you got, but everyone, but EVERYONE, says the V1 falses more, due to worse filtering, or more sensitivity, or for whatever other reasons.

    , Something tells me you will be keeping the X50.

    That does not make much sense especially if you are talking about X and/or K band "falses." I would be very nervous if the V1 is in all bogeys mode, and it did not false in the same places that the X50 does. Something may be wrong with the detector.

    FinaL,
    Did you buy it from a used source or VR?
    If it was used you might have codes turned off.
    Something is very suspicious about a V1 quieter than an X50 version 5 with no codes set.
    Do you get a flashing P on power up?
