Just purchased a new Civic Si recently and finding myself in search of a radar detector. I was just about ready to pull the trigger on an 8500 x50 when a friend mentioned he had a very lightly used V1 he would be interested in selling.
It's in great shape and comes with the direct line adaptor and power cord, the cig lighter adaptor, coiled cord and straight line cord. He is also throwing in the remote audio and the concealed display unit. The manual and the suction mount are not included -- he can't find them. I'd want to cleanly mount this at/near a power source such as a map light.
Now, my questions. Although the unit is in great condition, it's 5 years old. Any drawbacks or limitations of a unit of this age? Is it necessary to send it in to Valentine for an update?
He's looking to get $200 for the whole package? OK deal?
Thanks in advance for any/all input, suggestions, and comments.
