Hey guys. I've been a long time V1 user, since inception actually. The issue I've noticed with the last time I sent my V1 in a few years back it got upgraded to 3.863. Well, I've had ghosting issues it seems. My pops has got the same software on his V1 and he'll pick up one source while I pick up 3. Pretty much every time.
Also, when I drive up and down I-5 in western Washington I get full on KA alerts in Marysville, Everett, and Olympia. None of my friends with radar detectors get alerts, just me with my V1. I know the V1 is chatty, but not usually to the extent of making up KA alerts. I've never seen a LEO either and it appears to happen in the same spots of road, repeatedly. I haven't done a u-turn on the freeway to verify, but from memory it's always in the same spots. There aren't KA decoys in the area that I'm aware of. Anyone live in WA that could comment?
So, I was thinking about returning it to Valentine for a tuneup and s/w upgrade. Will it be the $45 diagnostic fee or a much higher upgrade fee if I go that route?
