I'm also a brand new V1 User and the device works great.
Here some pictures of my V1 install:
in & out:
In europe the RD are not allowed so I think this is the best solution to hide my V1.
If any European want to change his V1, he can send it to me and i make this.
I also changed already the 7-Segment Display into blue, i make some pictures tomorrow, but I think its very hard to change the radar locator into a another color.
