So I finally got me a V1. My earlier detectors were a whistler (stolen!) & a bel 955 (the whole car was stolen with it inside!!)....& if this one gets stolen I am going to be pissed!!
So far, I'm very impressed! The unit is lighter than it looks; smaller than I thought it would be & brilliantly designed. I love the arrows, the volume dial (hated the press to cycle volume levels rubbish), the mute volume dial, the counters and the ramp up. The windshield mount is truly genius!
The "once you get used to the arrows, there is no going back" sentiment is very true.
What I do not like however is the super-sensitivity. Its chattier than I expected. So I have it in the "L" mode & its soooo much better now!
I now have a few questions for you radar gurus:
How much of a risk am I taking with the L mode?
Does POP work in L?
Would I be better off disbaling POP & X & running it in the A mode?
I live in Houston, TX. Thanks!
