I've see this on several reviews and wonder where these guys are coming from. For me the V1 is the perfect shape, though I would like to see a version that angled the display to the right for us guys in the UK.
I assume these folks are saying it doesn't it look as pretty as some other detectors, I'm just not sure what pretty has to do with it. I really like the style/shape of the V1 because it is slim/flat and I can get it tight to the roof lining where it can do its job with the greatest efficiency. The controls are also on the front this means I have no problem interacting with the V1 in its prime location.
Other detectors that have the buttons on the top have to be positioned lower down the windscreen to enable operation of the unit.
V1 ergonomically challenged? Not for me, what do you think?
