My questions about the V1 are in bold...you can skip to those if you dont want to read my story [replacer_img]
So On saturday I went to a local bmw meet and had lunch a friend of mine that use to go on drives with us and has a e46 M3 just returned from his Winning championship race down in Vegas. He drives F1 style cars and won the last race of the season so we all got together and celebrated.
While me and him were talking I asked if he was still getting a Escort 9500 with GPS because I told him couple years ago I wanted his V1 when he did. He said he cant drive stupid anymore because one wreckless ticket and his racing License is taken away for ever.
So he said he would sell me it. So as of right now I owe him $150 bucks for his complete V1 set up which is now wire up were my escort use to be.
I see why people say these are one of the greatest radar detectors but I'd like to say that in the 3 years I've ran my 7500 with my bmw group (who all have V1s) I've never missed a lick. Its hit ever LEO and before someone would get on the radios and yell "cop".
Now Its hardwired where the previous owner of my girlfriends 04 bmw 330 had his V1 in it and even though she doesnt speed she likes the heads up.
But yeah Just had to share that I picked up a V1 for 150 and im stoked. Now just gotta get use to the settings. One thing I liked about my escort is the big K,KA,X that would show up. With my V1 at night its hard to see whether its a KA or K and what not.
I dont know if theres any way of changing it but back in the day before I REALLY knew what a V1 was I swore I saw a friends say K on it instead of the numbers? Could be wrong but just wanted to see if there was anything else.
Also I'm looking into a Concealed display because, Unless there is a another way, I would like to relocate the mute button by my shifter. I read the stickies and saw someone talking about it but it was really confusing.
All the concealed display does is move the display to somewhere easier to see correct? In doing so this Disables the V1s display on the main unit correct?
Thank you for the help.
