I can some times be a stubborn person, esp. when it comes to security-related issues. I want to feel safe and comfortable and am willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a well made product. I'm a big fan of Whistler after having gone through three (3) Cobra scanners, which were all returned to Sears and Radio Shack for doing nothing but looking pretty on my window with their little lips sucking on the glass and making cute, adorable sounds when parked in front of some automatic doors. Needless to say Cobra is gay and trash.
But anyway, I'm a HUGE Whistler fan and enthusiast but am also aware having based this on Youtube videos, the V1 website and customer reviews that the V1 is superior to most radar detectors. Is it better or just as good as the new Whistler XTR-695? I don't care for the little gay arrows on the V1 telling me where the cop is from, I just want to know if the detection and distance is any better.
