So far so good. I just installed my V1 that I bought used from someone for $250. It has FW 3.858 and the original owner said he bought it new in 2006.
I drove around with it on "A" for a quick highway and mostly city driving. It was going off like crazy in the city but decided to leave it on "A" so I can get acclimated with it. I understand now why everyone loves the arrows. It is kind of nice to know where the approximate threat is coming from. I have it mounted up just under the tint strip on the right side of the RVM. It is a great location and looks good there. I will need a concealed display though... once I get used to it.
I won't be doing anymore driving tonight, but have decided to shut the POP off along with X band. What do you guys think of that? Should I keep everything on for now? I live in Southern Mass.
Also, when the V1 is in "A" mode, do the POP and X band changes take affect or only when in L or "little L"?
PS. I have a "stealth cord" in the mail for easy installation.... although I purchased it off ebay for $9.95
