own two V- 1's, an early model and one that is a little over a year old.
I received a radar ticket on I-81, no warning. Several months later I received another radar ticket, officer was using a hand held K-band unit. Again, no warning. As I sat there, the other officer was still shooting K-band, no more than 25 feet away, my V-1 was silent. These two incidents happened with the first series V-1 about 3 years ago. I purchased another V-1 that was "updated" and also has Laser mode. A couple of months ago, we were traveling in a 3 car group through NC. I was in front, car two was using the latest Escort, car 3 had a V-1. A NCHP came up behind us running K band, Both car 2 & 3 picked his signal up but not mine. When I returned to Tennessee, I drove through town to find the city police using their hand held K unit, I parked up the street facing them as they shot radar in my direction , again no warnings from my V-1. The other day I passed a "check your speed" radar unit which in our town uses X-band, My V-1 didn't even pick this up. I am sending both units back to Valentine for repair but unfortunately I have lost confidence in these units. When do you know when one of the bands fall out? Usually when you get stopped for a ticket.
