I am beyond sick of this stupid V1 and its ghosting problems. It just about landed me a ticket. I was about 5 over the psl. I guess there were bigger fish fry.
Let me give you a little background on this situation.
There are 2 speed signs about a 1/4 mile from my house. One is on the northbound lane and the other on the south bound lane and they are probably 200 yards apart around a slight bend..
When I turn right out of my housing addition onto the main road the V1 instantly alerts to the first sign a good ways up the road. I have seen the bogey count as high as 3 on k band, on this one sign. As I get close enough to pick up the other sign the bogey count now jumps to 5-6. And just about when I'm perfectly in the middle between the speed signs I pick up ka band. So now my bogey count is up to 7-8 and arrows are pointing in every direction. It is like this every day I go through there. I pick up k band and ka band in the same spots every day. And I do believe the ka band the V1 picks up everyday is a false somewhere. Because my 8500 never picks it up.
Well today, I was driving through this particular area and not even paying attention the the V1 because it is useless in this area. What do I see probably a 50 yards pass the last sign? 2 motorcycle cops running ka band. Luckily they did not want me because I was only 5 over. I know they were running ka band because I drove the area again with my 8500 and it picked it up no problem with plenty of time to slow down.
I don't want to sound like I'm bashing the V1 but its rediculous. The main features of this detector are useless because it can't report anything accurately. I have put up with this crap for 6 months. I have had enough. The V1 is going bye bye. I will stick with my 8500 until VR decides to fix this crippling problem, on a great detector.
