Hey everyone, I currently have the "latest and greatest" from V1. I just bought it last week . Heres what V1s site says on the upgrade page.
V1 Description: Radar circuitry known in-house as V1.8—POP2 with Euro Mode. This is our latest and best performer on both radar and laser.
Upgrade Recommendation: You already have our best.
I am getting a TON of automatic door readings and pollutions on the K and X band everywhere I go pretty much. I use to have a Cobra many months back and honestly the V1 is not much better on the false alarms. Now after I had my Cobra, I had borrowed my friends V1 which was a little older I believe and POP was either not on it at all, or just not enabled, Im not too sure. But basically that was the ideal detector. It RARELY ever got any false alarms at all and was just so perfect, but the day I gave his back and got my new one let me say I was honestly dissatisfied. I turned POP off on my V1 and it is pretty much the exact same (false alarm wise). What can I do to stop this madness? Should I really turn off X and K bands all the way? I am mounting in the exact same spot on the exact same car and everything I just dont get why Im getting all this false alarm crap. I love the V1 and the Valentine Corp. and will continue to be a parton because I know there is a solution to this. The last 3 of my serial are "974" and my version is 3.871. Thanks!
