Got the V1 back from VR today. They fixed the ghosting problem (Mike called me to let me now a part inside was broken and needed to be replaced). Updated software from 3.824 to 3.826. Cost = $45 + shipping there.
Hardwiring was really quick and easy. S1 is fantastic. I'd take some pictures but there is not much to see. The S1 and all the wires are hidden in the access panel by the dome lights. The power wire comes out from the headliner about 4" down to the V1 behind the RVM. Eventually I plan to build some sort of contraption to completely hide the V1 from sight, but for now I'll leave it as it.
