I bought my first detector about seven or eight years ago. I decided on a 8500X50 because of it's filtering capabilities. I am in need/want of a new RD. The V1 scared me off because of it's being extra chatty. I read the thread about a True Lock fan getting a V1 by CJR I think their handle is. Will this toning down of the V1 make it bearable in the metroplex? I only take road trips once a year, so it is safe to say 99% of my driving is in the city. Should I just stay with the Escort brand? I live in Ft. Worth.
