    Default When should I buy a V1?

    Saturday, my 3 week old RX65 gave me the SERVICE REQUIRED finger. After buying over 20 Bels and Escorts in the last 20 years, Im throwing in the towel. Ive decided I need to give the V1 a shot.
    Are there any upgrades or changes in the works that I should hold off for?

    Mike wont return my calls, and I dont trust any salesman for a straight answer to any question. Im hoping you guys can throw me some good tips here.

    Now! Don't wait until after a speeding ticket. If an upgrade you want comes out just get'er done.

    Buy it when you need it. Firmware revisions should be covered under warrantee for a year (minus shipping), and VR as an exceptional track record for taking care of new customers in the event that an upgrade comes out soon after purchase. The current rumor is that the "J" thing (that I still haven't seen) will be truly, finally fixed within a month or two. Until then you should treat every Ka alert as a real threat, even those that "J" out. Personally I find that the Ka false rejection is still really good and I don't get that many of those to begin with. And, hey. If you hate it within the first month just send it back for your refund.

    When did I become a V1 advertisement? So sad...

    I will have to say that I agree dont wait until after a speeding ticket... if that is the RD you are settled on...dont wait, no reason to. Dissapointing what happened with the RX65 to say the least.

    mike likes it when people say good things about his v1....!!

    but if someone says something hostile then he goes on the defensive its as if the v1 is part of him!

    Man, are you that much of an idiot?

    ANYONE that has ever held a job likes it when people say good things about the work that they're doing, and gets defensive when people say bad things about the work that their doing.
