    Default To POP or not?

    Hello fellow V1 owners.

    I have a V1 1.8 without POP. I have heard mixed reviews bout the upgrade. Where I live, from what I have "heard" POP is just now being introduced to the law enforcement. Some buddies of mine swear that POP is being used now but have not confirmed it. Because the upgrade is going to cost me about 70.00 bucks I am alittle undecided. I hear that the POP upgrade brings some bugs into the V1? Can anyone talk to that?

    They use POP in Ohio, Nevada, Texas ot my knowledge. I am sure there is more.

    Even if you are thinking about upgrading from POP, the newest version of the v1 is said to be much quieter then before. Which is worth an upgrade all in itself IMO

    dont upgrade until V1 is finished tweaking.

    your V1 is fine and needs NO tweaking. POP is scarce..and not an issue..

    hold off. when I send mine in, then send yours in.

    I'd say wait. V1 has had to release way too many updates for POP, and it's still not perfect. I would expect that he can do a lot better, and will, given enough time.

    What other tweaks are in store? I'm trying to decide whether to get one now or wait.

    if you DONT already have a V1, BUY a V1 ASAP.

    my advice was for someone like me who already has a V1, fireware V3.813 = no POP.
