Alright so i just got a V1 by surprise for my birthday. I live in Tampa FL near a University and the cops here are known to use K band. I was always saving up to be able to buy an Escort 9500ix and always thought of the valentines as annoying because of there constant beeps. After reading this forum for the last week or so ive realized that the v1 is the best... If you know how to read it. In the city i usually run it on Logic mode. I want to know what are some of the tips you guys use with your v1 for K band. I get a lot of false alerts with this Band and don't see anyway to filter out if its actually a cop, or if its just doors or whatever type of radar.
Some solutions ive read are Kband automute. Would this really help? Does this actually help filter out some of the fakes and still catch the real things? Or should i just go with the escort and save myself all this trouble?
Also as far as the Visor Mount goes. Does the rear detector HAVE to be looking through the rear glass? Because if i mount it on my Visor its so high that the rear side kinda hits the top of my car instead of looking through the glass in the back directly. Its kinda like a hatchback sports car.

Thanks any advice would be greatly appreciated
