I just came back from a trip to Nor Cal. I've barely had my radar detector for over a week and im already sold on it. Though i had alot of false alerts on X and Kband going up and back through Nor Cal. It saved me quite a few times and alerted me close to a mile and half away of a CHP. I couldn't believe that the majority of the CHP just leave there radar on while they drive, so its like a gift from god using my V1. I was so impressed when i was getting a rear Ka alert on the 101. And watching in my rvm some lights turn on flashing and watching a guy getting pulled over. While I was alerted to it, but given well enough of a warning. I loved getting an alert and watching a few sec later a CHP giving a ticket or waiting on the side of the road to give a ticket. Though I wont totally depend on it ( you really never know they could be pacing you) I'm a V1 fan for life!
My save was in Hollywood i was speeding around 85. And this was also my first Ka alert on the V1. I looked up at my detector and saw it was Ka so i dropped the car down a gear to 65-70. And started to look back and I couldnt see him at all. Maybe about a few sec later the CHP comes flying by with his lights on and pulls the guy ahead of me.
