I received my V1 two days ago. Not that I am annoyed by the false alarms, I just want to lessen these not wanted alerts.
Now I just have a couple of questions:
1. What is the difference for the settings E and F (four & six Led's)? Are these used simultaneously in the big and small L mode? How does the 30 second delay apply to these settings?
2. I often travel from the SF Bay Area to L.a., and Sacramento. For similar drivers here with a similar route, is it really safe to turn off X Band and Pop mode?
3. I want to ask people over here who have both the 9500ix and V1 and their experiences. Is the auto-lockout really worth it? There may some bugs right now but an updated firmware will easily fix this, if they come out with one. I was really thinking of returning my V1 and purchasing the escort but I think I cannot live without the arrows. Don't get me wrong, I love my V1 but I just want to have something that will be worth the investment, down the road. Will V1 come out with the similar features as the 9500 in the near future?
I will test out the automute settings I programmed today, and based on your insights, I may or may not swap it for an Escort.
Maybe, I'm one of the guys who has the mentality, "The grass is greener on other side". I have the tendency of returning things thinking that I may have purchased a better one at same or slightly higher price.
Your opinions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
