I'm new here, been reading up for a while and fell in love with the V1. I currently have a Whistler XTR220 with remote and its good, but those V1 directional arrows are so neat! Always wanted one but never really gave it a good look, because i knew it was expensive. Well tax refund time, and I decided to go ahead and make the big plunge, I'm sure i won't ever need another detector and this one is like getting two for one (front and rear detection) so in light of that, I think its a good deal. Mine should arrive Friday and also my new Bearcat BCT-10 found on ebay like new in box. Can't hardly wait till the weekend, I'll surely be busy getting everything hooked up and tested.
