    Default Anyone else think V1 should change the way the face looks?

    I have always liked what I have heard about the V1's upgrades, detection, customer service ect. However I have never really liked the way the face of it looks. It's too retro to me. I love the arrow idea, but wonder if it could be in a more updated look. Led arrows or something. The bogey number read out is nice, but I don't really care for the signal strength indicator is basicaly dots. Am I the only one on here to seem too picky about the retro look or does anyone else agree?

    you know when i first got it, I thought it was the ugliest detector ever, but when you measure the preformance, it was well worth it....

    I understand you think the detector makes up for itself, which is great! I'd just like a non retro look!

    I think they should take the angle off the front. Its Ok for you all in left hand drive land but dos not suit right hand drive countries. It works fine but its a bit of a pita. Other than that its a great unit.

    They don't market the unit to any right-hand drive countries, I am pretty sure they only ship to the US an a few Canadian provinces. So maybe you should ask for that first :P

    I definitely like the slant towards the left. I can't believe BEL doesn't do this as well, but its probably for the Europeans' ease of use since most of them drive on the other side.

    The only real improvement I would make on the V1 is to make the band identification LEDs different colors...this would be very easy...Orange for Laser, Yellow for Ka, Green for K, Blue for X. Something like that. I've actually wondered if anyone has taken their V1 apart already and did the replacement themselves.

    Disclaimer- I don't currently own a V1, may purchase one in early '06.

    I have to agree that I like the slant also. One thing I didn't like about my RX 65, you had to have it right in front of your vision to see it.

    I understand about the "old" look. But the insides are new, I would rather Mike work on that and keep the great performance.

    <<<<<<<<<< this is what mine looks like I have the actual unit mounted out of my field of vision, so i dont really ever look at it, and passengers never notice it unless i point it out to them.

    I think that maybe a better poll question would be to ask how much you would pay to upgrade to a newer, more modern look. I personally don't really care (I don't love it or hate it) I just like that it works.
