Well its final, my V1 is ordered and my Pro 73 is sold. I was hesitant whether to go for the x50 or the V1, but well I have decided on the RD that won almost all of the GOL tests and seems to provide superior range.
While my Pro 73 has worked well and has shown to be quite a star, I have retired it to craigslist ($80 for that thing, not a bad down payment on the V1).
I bought the V1 for its sensitivity and arrows, but some quirks I was kinda curious about:
The display: Is it just a bogie counter? No Ka frequency readouts like the x50?
Settings: What are the recommended immediate go play w/ things you shouldn't play with that people usually change? I am thinking I will kill x band right away.
Automute: While there is a mute button, does this thing automute after 3 seconds or w/e... I had my whistler so when it first got an alert it was really loud, then like 3 seconds later it would still chirp just much quieter.
Anyway its gonna be weird driving with no protection for the next couple days until the V1 gets here... Wish me luck!
