So I'm driving along the highway, going about 75-80, in the flow of traffic. Not paying* much attention to scanning for police since there were plenty of cars around and I was following a few of them.
Suddenly the V1 alerts to K from behind, about half strength. I quickly check my RVR and notice a LEO coming up from behind in the left lane, 1 car between me and him. The guy behind me notices this at the same time and we both slow down and move into the middle lane. The LEO turns off his radar and cruises on by, everyone goes about their business as usual. Instant-on moving K on the highway, that's a new one for me.
The arrows definately saved me this time. With my old 8500 I would have been checking the road up ahead, and probably muted it after not seeing anything (plus all the traffic in front of me). I was originally not too fond of the arrows. Nothing wrong with them but I did not think they would ever be really useful. I really got the V1 for its renowned sensitivity (still waiting for the legendary 5 mile Ka alert) and integration into the BMW with stealthone. But now I am a true believer, a zombie one might say. Long live the V1.
*I usually pay more attention, but after waking up at 1:40 AM to go to Ellsworth ME for the day yesterday I was not as alert as normal.
