Hey everyone! It's been a dogs age since I posted.
Over the weekend we were victimized by our two cars being broken into. Thought we lived in a safe neighborhood! They went through the cars, got my V1 radar detector which I had hidden in the car. They were good. No signs of forced entry even though both cars were locked. The police said they just stick a wedge in the door frame which allows them enough room to extend a rod and pop the latch. They can do it in a matter of seconds. Pleasing to know! The officer said they randomly target sections of neighborhoods and are after IPODS, GPS & other electronic devices that they can sell quickly. Usually for drug money. So my word to pass on to all of you is donít keep anything of value in your car. A car alarm would have come in handy.
I emailed V1 with the serial number and they will add it to their hot files in case it comes in for servicing. Being without my V1 is like being without a security blanket. But during this time I had a chance to do some serious stare and compare. There sure is allot of anti V1 reviews out there that you got to siff through. But all the videos I see on Youtube, a few of the other top performers are just neck and neck as far a performance is concerned on K & KA. But considering the rear antenna, arrows which I think I would seriously miss, stellar laser performance & few other great features. I think I'll end up buying another V1.
Reading about the V2 rumor has got me thinking. Being an engineer I do see a few thing I would change on the front display. But I can also see it drive up the cost which many I'm sure would gladly pay.
