Only a few days into my 30 day trial of the V1, so I'm not making any decisions at this point, but I've found thus far; around town (where MOST of my driving is), the bogie counter and arrows arent very accurate. The arrows are inaccurate around town/cities due to the fact that there's so many cars, buildings, and objects for it to bounce off. I tend to think the same thing happens with the bogie counter (but I could be wrong). In times when its a real threat, it tends to be a more powerful signal...and if I'm on the highway, or far from any automatic doors, I know 99% sure that the signal is legit, and the arrows tend to be dead on. But this begs the question....are they really necessary considering with my Escort (without arrows) I feel the same way. The only way I feel positive that its a real cop running radar is in these less populated areas (i.e. - highways, or backroads). And therefore in those instances I'm taking it dead serious and keep the speed low until the signal drops (regardless of where its coming from).
Its hard because its like 90% of the auto doors around here are all K band.
I do love the arrows at night though. I've had one instance where I was pulling up to a stoplight and was taking a right on red. As I approached the light, the arrows stayed forward. I couldnt see the LEO anywhere. As I made the right I realized he was second in line at the light (in the lane next to mine) and I couldnt even pick him out with such a dark car at night. Very cool. I made sure it was alegal right on red first. I think without the arrows insisting it was FORWARD I probably would never have seen him and figured he was behind me somewhere.
