Even though I know it's blasphemy to get a used V1, I did it. Found a deal for a version 1.7 for $150. Confirmed with Valentine that it wasnt a stolen serial number, and have been using it for almost a week.
But... As with all good things, they must have a drawback right? This morning, 3 times, and in areas that I typically dont get alerted, the unit went berserk. The rear arrow and side arrows lit up, the X/K/Ka (i think, but I know 3 of the 4 lights came on) and I honestly cant remember if the alert strength was full or not, I think it was.
Now, there are 3 questions in my mind.
1) Is the unit broken?
2) What would make the unit go nuts?
3) A possible thought... I just moved the unit higher on the windshield last night. Previously it was in the middle, now its almost at the top. Did the repositioning create the problem?
