..so after I bought my first radar, the Escort 8500.. I've always been a fan of having the best radars. I've always been an Escort fan.. going from the 8500 to the Solo S2 to a V1 (v1.8) (Finally decided to cough up the 450 for it!!!) to a 8500 X50 (Blue). And unfortunately, for the past 5 - 6 years, I've gone radar-less because of the economy, and getting laid off.. I had to sell my beloved radars.
Well, finally after 6months of looking for a job, I finally find one.. I just recently picked up another V1 (v3.872) w/POP 2 ..the latest firmware I believe. And when coming back from picking it up from the seller, I had a very long 1hr. drive ahead of me. Not once, not twice.. but three times did the V1 save my ass. All three times, I was behind a slow ass car in the fast lane (WHY DO PPL GO SLOW IN THE FAST LANE!! ..ITS CALLED A FAST LANE FOR A REASON!!) ..haha, sorry..but anywho.. as soon as I was gonna switch over to the next lane and pass it up.. all three times my V1 chirped a Ka band for a second or so (Pulse Mode).. so I figured, I better play it safe. Soon enough, a quarter-mile to a half-mile up.. there's a State Sheriff hiding under an underpass.. sneaky bastard!! ..but not sneaky enough!
I've rly missed my V1!!!! ..and you cannot beat the "Forward arrow, side arrow, back arrow" when passing up a radar!!
