I just purchased a new V1 from the wesite and should have it by Wed the 9th. From what I have read, I will program it so X band is off. That is how I use my 8500 now. I live in WI where they only use k,ka and some laser. The towns I live around are about 70k in size,so not real large. I don't want a bunch of bantering about who is best; I have been using good detectors for 16 years and I know how to interpret them. I just want any other suggestions on set-up for when I get this. I also will probably turn off the POP band.
