First, off topic, this forum is great. Yes I've searched and read.
However, I'm currently using a V1.8 without the POP firmware. The problem is: the detector is as quiet as a mouse past NJ State Troopers. It used to work like a charm past PA State Police but now it seems as though they may have switched to POP as well. Basically, the detector is useless to me now except for NJ local pd's.
So, to those of you using a V1 with POP, is it working? Are you getting signals from the POP? Is it worth sending in for the upgrade?
Unfortunately, regardless of what everybody says about them switching off POP to write citations, I've learned first hand that they'll write them just as easily without.
