    Default V1 Update from 3.818 to 3.819

    Sent my V1 in on June 3rd for software update from 3.818 to 3.819. Received it back today, June 13th. Not bad service considering this included 4 weekend days.

    3.824 is the best they make right now!

    Oh, lucky me. That may explain why I get fewer falses than with my Rx 65. I love it any which way.

    My wife's V1 was upgraded to 3.824 (Euro mode) but when I sent mine in to upgrade from 3.818 to 3.819, I asked not to include the Euro mode since, if it were turned on, it would reduce detection here in the US. And if I were going to return to Europe, the last thing I would be thinking about is my RD. Drive safely and happy motoring.

    Why didn't you get the upgrade and just leave it off? I may be off base but I think it may have something to do with the few false alarms I get. I had a bel Rx 65 that faled a lot more than my v1....even on city mode.

    Probably because 3.824 (Euro mode) cost $75 more to upgrade (we think because they might have had to add hardware)
    And it also has a new flaw (section 7 K band automute does not work)

    I didnt want to pay for the Euro mode upgade which is useless in the US.
