    Best buy has a 14 day return period and a 15% restocking fee on radar detectors.
    That's a $49 loss, you would be better off buying from Roy.
    Might save on sales tax as well.
    You are looking at 1 1/2 - 2 weeks without a unit

    Roy you should rent radar detectors, a lot of us need one to get by from time to time but I guess people just buy then return when they are done with them.

    You should always have a backup. That's why I have my trusty 985.

    Man, I can sympathize... VR has mine right now for the latest update for the POP. It is like driving naked... :shock:

    I hope they get it back to me soon, this is horrible! The good news is the new V1 I just bought for the wife just arrived. It was here in less than a week. Fantastic job from VR!

    I remember the ads for the original Passport, they said they'd get it to you tomorrow morning.

    The original Passport (Tiny gray rd from Cincinnati Microwave still beats most detectors today on X and K band. If they had one back then with Ka and laser, I would be using it now. Drive safely and happy motoring.

    Those were the days. Check out the 1991 Escort DSP on X and K band compared to the 1994 V1 and 1997 V1 on X and K band.

    Unless you tell them and pay for otherwise, they will return your V1 UPS ground I believe.

    I wonder, if it weren't for sites like this one, how much of a drop in business via upgrades would VR see? They hardly ever post about firmware upgrades and I think most people would hardly ever look for it as they seem to only post model updates.

    You would think they would send owners emails or postcards or something provided the customer agreed to it.

    Anyway, my hat goes off to this site for keeping me informed. Its been almost a week now that my baby has been gone. I'm suffering serious withdrawal. This obeying the speed limit really sucks!! lol

    BTW, Bigeasyguy, how did you manage to get your upgrade for free? I bought my new V1 in December. 1.8/POP2 with 3.818 firmware and just sent it in. Did they not bill you for it after providing your CC info? Or did they tell you up front it was a freebie?
