So I had recently purchased a V1 about a month ago, and I've been loving it. I've also been researching and pricing out laser jammers for my next big purchase, but I wanted to make the best possible decisions based on all available info, so I've been lurking on this site for a bit because I felt like I didn't have much to contribute. However, I had an awesome V1 experience yesterday that I just had to share.
So I was driving from home (long island) back to school (de) and I was traveling on I95 S in del. Forgive me, I left a little later than I would have liked, then hit traffic through staten island, so I was going a little fast (75 in a 55). so I could make it to lab. I rarely see leos on i95 in de. But as I was just passing the rest stop, I got a laser alert. I was traveling in the left lane doing about 73-75, and there was a group of cars in front of me. I slow down, but not too abrubtly, and change lanes to my right to get behind a car going the psl. The laser alert stopped and I notice the leo with the window down lasering and another leo just behind him ready to pounce on the next speeder. As I'm just ahead of the leo, I get another laser alert. And that lasts for a second or two. I passed them and I was like, for sure i'm toast, the first time i got the alert, I was surely going over their grace limit. Nope, no lights behind me...
My assessment of the sitch is that the first alert I got was scatter from cars in front of me getting lasered, that gave me time to slow, then the second laser alert was me actually getting tagged. I'm totally loving v1s laser detection. Soo, I just wanted to share that experience, I'm extremely happy with my v1, definitely a good investment. I want to get that laser jammer, I think I might have to do a bit of saving for it, the v1 is the first step in my countermeasures.
(ps - mods, not sure if this was the right subforum to post, I apologize if it wasn't)
