Hey all, just got my V1 3.872. It was a returned unit, so i got $40 off. Not too bad.
Took it out for a test drive in the neighborhood and on the highway tonight and it was surprisingly QUIETER than my whistler xtr-695se. I had it in the default settings and "A" mode.
What got me was, going down 18th avenue, the whistler always picked up a bunch of k-band junk along with 1 very strong source of ka right on my block. When I went by with the V1, it picked up the k-band (automatic door openers and some kinda security system inside a bank) but going up my block, there was no Ka alert whatsoever. The whistler always alerted near full strength ka every time I went down my block (but never ID'ed the freq in spec mode)
My question is, is the filtering on the V1 that much better that it ID'ed the ka as junk and didn't even show it? Or is my unit somehow blind to ka? Being a returned unit, it makes me paranoid even though I'm pretty sure they test it 100% before sending it out to a customer.
