I'm just curious about why you chose to buy a V1. :?:
Since getting back "into" traveling with an RD, I've come to realize that people either love the V1 or hate it. I don't know why this is. Personally, I chose the V1 because of the reputation as a top detector and because of the concealed display.
I don't hate or flame the Escort or Bel RDs. If they had concealed displays, I would have considered them too. But since they don't offer the concealed display, I didn't look any further than the V1.
I love my V1. I think the arrows are great, as they have pointed out that stalker coming up from behind me in traffic. I'm glad I bought it. And I'm not against Escort or Bel either.
