I've had my V1 hardwired since the second day I got it. I've had it about two weeks I guess.
Anyways, I wired it to my map lights (constant on) and that's how I had my previous Cobra wired and it worked for almost two years (it didn't blow up, I broke it -- my fault)
But anyways, in the past two days my V1 has "shutoff" twice. What happens is I'll be randomly driving and then I hear a "beep" and by the time I look up the V1 is about half-way done with it's POST (power on self test)
I'm thinking my wiring might've been bad but I went to extreme lengths to verify I had everything hooked up correctly. I did NOT wire my ground wire to a screw, I just taped the ground "C" connector (it looks like a C) to a constant ground wire (map lights, again)
- Is it ok to wire V1 to constant power?
- Why did my V1 randomly shut off twice?
- Is it ok to wire V1 to constant ground wire and not a screw?
