After seeing the V1 in action in friends cars, watching youtube demos and reading the forum...I've finally purchased my very own V1 with remote display and just got it today. I'm all for situational awarness and I aready feel sort of vulnerable if I'm in a car without one. Looks like I may be addicted before the first 24 hrs of ownership.
As an aside, I took several peoples advice and purchased a "refurbished" unit and as many people have said, it looks brand new. Not a scratch. I rarely drive in city limits and I am pleasantly surprised how quiet the V1 is even in A mode. I actually had to search out a mall to make sure it's working.
I'm going to get used to the A mode for a week then start customizing as this is my first RD.
Thanks for all the great advise and comments.
