Choices, choices - difficult ones to make. But after much reading, and talking with several from this forum, here's what I did.
First, I bought a 9500i. It is very quiet and I liked that. But, the GPS stopped working after a few days. After studying it carefully, made the decision to send it back. (RadarBusters.com has incredible customer service. Yay Jessica, you rock.)
I also ordered an 8500 X50 for use on my motorcycle and as a way to compare the results of the V1.
And today, I ordered the V1. It should be here when I wake up in the AM. Wooo Hooo.
I think the arrows sound like heaven. Hopefully I'll be able to live with it's chatiness. :-) And. I also have a REBinc Remote Display coming as being able to tell the bands based on color is out of this world. (Ok, I love electronic toys.)
Thanks for the encouragement. If this works as well as I think it will, I'll get one for my motorcycle and my wife's car.
Btw, I also just installed the Blinder M45 on my car and the M25 Extreme on my motorcycle. Between it, VEIL and the V1, I should be pretty well set up I'm hoping.
Now, I just need to apply a dose of common sense, learn to use the V1 and I'm off... LOL
