So....finally I got my V1 here. As u know, in Hong Kong the only anti-speeding devices used are Multanova 6F and LTI laser guns. The multanova functions on 34.3ghz narrow KA band, and is very low powered, 0.5mw to 0.2mw depending on its settings. Multanovas are usually pointed in the same direction as traffic flow so that it takes a reading and photo of your vehicle as u pass it.
The V1's EURO mode is specifically designed for this.
I already went out to test it, and i must say i was very impressed with it's range. It is MUCH better than my x50 by a significant margin, at least 5 times the range. For example, with the X50 i would have got 2-3 seconds waring but now i get 10-13 seconds warning
Upon testing a multanova, the speed limit was 100km/h. I was travelling 150 km/h and had no problems slowing down ontime, but quite hard braking is needed.
Few things I must mention:
People here said the V1 was loud?? IT IS NOT! My X50 was definately louder. Only the laser siren is very loud, but the KA brap brap is soft even on full volume. The X50 was definately much louder. I dont know if my speaker is malfunctioning, but judging on the videos you guys have made, it seems fine. The brap brap on the X50 is much more sharper and ear pierceing, therefore its much louder. IF i had my windows down and music pumping at 100 km/h, i doubt i'd hear the KA tone.
The laser falses quite a lot at night in the city area because there are sooooo many multi-coloured NEON signs everywhere. This is very very annoying. My x50 never did that
Mouting the V1 very high, as opposed to low down, yielded slightly better detection.
Now i need to figure out how to hard wire.....
