Hey I just recently got a v1 as a gift last week of July. I wanted one because I used my friends last summer when he went outta town and saw the great performance of the v1. I was clearly impressed as I took a drive to FL (from ny) and the v1 got every cop, even aggressive traps on the way down. I did this trip in March '04 so I'm guessing I was using possibly the v1.7 of the v1.
Either way, the v1 I have now does not seem to be detecting all of the police i see. I drive alot in NJ which is infamous for the X band and I get Xband hits but I often drive by undercover cars which are shooting k and ka bands and my v1 does not go off. I remember it going crazy on these same cops when i used my friends in march '04. i know for a fact the undercover cop was shooting for speeders because moments after i passed him he pulled out and pulled someone over. I have also passed a couple of NJ state troopers which I normally get heavy X band hits and get absolutely nothing. since i have owned my own i have to be honest and say i am losing a little bit of confidence in the ability of this detector. any feedback or more questions are welcome, please no flames as maybe Mike V does need to be alerted of some type of bug in this v1.
