My new V1 just arrived today.
I am trying to make a choice between the 9500 ix and the V1.
Impressions so far.
Opened the box and the V1 was secure but didn't have any clear wrapping around it.
The manual was loose and a little scuffed up looking. (no plastic on it either)
Seems to be lighter by weight than the ix.
Not that it's a big deal, but so far I like the way Escort presents the product to the new customer. I had know doubt when I opened the Escort that I was the first person to unwrap everything.
The V1 sort of made me feel I was looking at the demo model they have at the front desk.
Will not have a chance to do a good road test until Monday.
Just in case you don't know, I had 95% made up my mind that I was keeping the Escort after using for 4 days, until I found out today that some folks on here were having actual LEO's locked out because of the new technology.
But I do like the fit and finish and the weight of the 9500 ix so far.
It was giving me 1.5 mile warnings on K band. Seemed pretty quiet.
But at this point I am still very neutral. I am hoping the V1 knocks my socks off!
