I ordered a v1 it should be here sometime this week. However i did have some questions. I also have 9500ix and was wondering if i could use the power cord for my 9500ix to power my v1. If so would the mute work on the v1 as welll? This is the hard wire kit you get from escort. Also what is the best mode to run your v1 in i dont care about flase alerts im 30mins from the city. Most of the leo's here run k band c/o or stalker ka and i did see a leo with x band the other day but that is only like once out of a year that you would see x band. Any help you guys or gals could give me would be great. And thanks to everyone that helps out on this site. I have learned so much now and cant get off this site.
