    Default V1 arriving today

    I bought a v1 and it will be coming today. I was wondering what settings I need to twek and what else I need to do right out of the box.

    I do alot of city driving, but go on 350 mile + trips every so often.

    I read all the settings but am confused about what to actually do and which ones I need.

    Congradulations on a smart move. The best detector IMO money can buy.

    I shut X band off and run in A mode. But you will have to experiment.

    You may want to get on line and download a manual so you can be familiar with all the features etc. before you get it. That's what I did. I knew I would be too excited once I got it to read.

    Do the following:

    Put it on "L" Advanced Logic Mode

    Go to option J which is POP and turn it off. THe arrrow will point down when this option has been disabled

    With these two things you will be one happy owner!

    Good buy, I know when I bought my V1 was so excited, was tracking it like every hour!

    I would not turn X off unless you are positive your police do not use em.

    Go to the website and there are is a page full of settings to fit your need

    Default v1 settings

    Why turn off pop happy? I never get pop falses on my V1.

    I also disagree with shutting X band off. I live in NJ and when I drive to school in VA I usually see a few maryland and all NJ state cops with x band guns. Also, in NC and ohio x band is still used. I would leave X band on and use the "L" setting ( big L ).

    It depends on where you live/drive. If you *know* no X band is used in the places where you drive, turn it off. I prefer using advanced logic (big "L") mode personally. You never know when a cop will decide to be sneaky and dust off an old X band gun, or you go through a town where they use X band.

    Once you've had the V1 for a while, you'll get to know where the false alarm locations are. Then you can ignore those alerts, but if you suddenly see a bogey where there wasn't one before, or 2 instead of 1 in a false alarm location, etc. then it's time to be alert.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    If speed kills, how come I'm still alive?

    You cant distinguish a POP alert from a regular alert on the V1. They both alert the same so one will never know if you have gotten a POP. With POP off my V1 seems a lot more calmer and laid back.

    Turning the POP off would reduce Ka band falses right?

    So far my V1 (X off) seems to false only at expected locations. My X-50 (X off) would false on POP and laser every couple of days at different points on a 5 mile city commute. With X on the V1 would definately pickup more stuff though. So far no flases for the V1 on Ka.

    Drive it in Big L mode!!!! After getting a feel for it after a few months, you can tweak it to your liking.
