Did 250 miles this weekend in MA, NH.
Overall V1 is not too chatty. Laser falses is most annoying. Every Toll, Almost every Work Area Light sign set it off. But you know to dismiss them. Wish VR could work on that a bit.
Two situations today convinced me.
1) I was back to the intersection I discussed in the Escort Forum that autolocked out way too quickly (See I'm starting to have doubts in Autolock (as currently implemented) ) I had been running 9500ix with GPS on now and Auto Truelock on to compare how I would actually run them. So I'm approaching this locked out intersection and the V1 starts bleeping as expected. 9500ix silent and but NOT locked out yet (1 point for V1 notifying sooner even though it is K). Another 500 ft or so V1 is blaring and 9500ix is now locked out and silent (as expected). I'm at a stop light in the middle of the false and V1 is blaring like mad (way over the 30 second k-mute). I'm waiting for the wife to complain (I hate hitting mute button). I even asked her, is it driving you nuts yet? She said yeah. I go through the intersection and V1 has 3 Bogeys and Full signal dead ahead. 9500ix still locked out. Wow V1 is still really upset about this intersection. Low and behold a new Speed Sign !! Which the 9500ix locked out for FREE . That could have been a LEO with C/O for petes sake.
2) Driving home on 93 south in NH, I'm doing PSL. All is quiet and I see a State Trooper in a Charger nestled off to the right. Darn I wish he had fired. Definitely I/O. Probably 1000ft after a Pickup truck passes me probably 10 MPH over PSL. Bink goes the V1 one light Rear Ka. Nothing out of 9500ix. I think even my wife who rolls her eyes at this stuff was impressed. Another couple miles down the road. Two cruisers (chasers) each with a customer. Clearly not a save but I sure feel safer with the V1. In fact I feel like I've been naked for years now.
I've seen enough. Now where's that 9500ix shipping box.
I plan to order a concealed display. But it won't be "concealed". There is no room on the left side of rear view mirror and out of theifs and LEO site. So it has to go on passenger side. I'm gonna mount the concealed display between drivers visor and rear view mirror. So the display will catch my eye. That will allow me to turn the volume down the most.
