    Default Problem with my concealed display mute button :-(

    Guys, I'll get a k band false alert on my V1 and it'll show a bogey "1" and when I press the mute on my concealed display it shows the "L". Why is my mute not working? God I hope I don't have to send it back.

    You'll see the current mode (A, l, or L) when you press the mute button during an alert. This is normal. If the sound isn't actually muting, check the muted volume control on the V1. It's the little tab behind the main volume knob. It controls the volume that muted alerts sound at.
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

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

    At first I didn't like the V1 because it falsed like a mofo, but then I put the detector into "L" mode, turned off X band, and now I'm in love. This is a sweet detector.

    I have to admitt......I like the arrows ops: Never thought the were a big deal when I had my X50.

    The X50 and the V1 seem to have the same range from frontal radar. I've already seen a huge difference with rear radar detection.

    Once you discover the arrows, you wonder how you got along without them. Example from today: I had just gotten on the highway, when I got a weak blip on Ka. I looked at the display, the arrow pointed rear. I knew it was a cop parked in a construction zone before the point where I merged, so I knew I was safe. Any other detector, I would have hit the brakes.

    Also, the V1 is one detector where you definitely have to RTM, since it has several unique features such as the arrows, bogey counter, single multifunction button and the aforementioned adjustable mute volume. Familiarize yourself with the features and characteristics, and you'll get the most out of your V1.

    Here's my other V1 tip for the day: to set the mute volume without having to find a radar door opener, listen to the power-up sequence. You'll hear BEEP BRAP beep brap DOO-DEE-DOO-DEE. The second "beep brap" sounds at the muted volume. You can use this to adjust your volume settings. The power-up sequence also gets you familiar with the major band sounds. To translate the power-up sounds, it's X, K, muted X, muted K, Laser.

    Quick sound summary:

    Beep: X band
    Brap: K band
    Brap-Brap (like Brap but with a little break in the middle): Ka band
    Doo-dee-doo-dee: Laser
    Dee-deet beep: New bogey, X band
    Dee-deet brap: New bogey, K band
    Dee-deet brap-brap: New bogey, Ka band
    Dee-dah-doh: False alert was "J"unked out
    If I'm passing you on the right, YOU are in the wrong lane!

    Yes, the little tab behind the control button works wonder. And for me personally, the arrows are worth the price of the detector alone. They sure save wondering where the radar source is coming from. One quick glance at the RD and you know right where the cops are or will be. Drive safely and happy motoring.

    Today I was driving along and I got a weak K hit. I had front arrow, and then a second later I had side arrow before the signal died. Without the arrows, I would have been going slow for the next 2 miles wondering if that K signal was a short burst of instant on from up ahead. Love 'em arrows too.
