So I finally got the cash to cough up for the v1. First impression... Damn. I ordered it at 4 on monday night. Had the ups guy at my door, box in hand, at 9 the following morning. Props to Mike Valentine. =)
Opened the box, again, damn.... No annoying bullet proof case like my escort detectors. Pretty excited. The cool thing I found is that it runs fine off the power supply my Zr4 puts out for my 9500ix, so I have no need to run additional wires.
Used it, and after a few hours of using it, I'm ready to ditch my ix. I love that the ramp up doesn't suck. Haven't see too much of a range difference with it yet, but having QT detection is a dealbreaker in itself. Ill actually be selling my 9500ix soon, so keep heads up. Anyways...
1. Can someone explain the "l" (small l) and "L" modes to me? I've read online about them, but i seem to get people comparing them to highway and city. Which should I be keeping on? I live in a subburb or chicaho, but never really travel to the chi.
2. When going thru the tolls, I get a laser alert. I know this is suppose to happen. Question is, my ix and Zr4 never pick up a toll way laser, but my v1 does.... What gvies.
3. What is the proper place to mount the v1? I had my ix in the center of the windshield right above the RVM. Should I keep my v1 there, or put it in the dead center of the windshield so it gets better use of the rear antenna?
Thanks for all your help. And thanks for pulling me away from my escort. I like the v1 more and more every day!
