I decided to put a 9500ix in the car with the V1 just to see how they ran together. I'm very aware of the possible interference. Interestingly enough, during the 200 mile drive I did yesterday, I saw a record number of cops on a section of I-75. Obviously this was a huge push for fourth of July enforcement.
I got nailed with laser 3 times in a ten mile stretch!! Interestingly enough, the V1 would have have saved me 2 out of the 3 times I got hit with laser had I been speeding! During one of the saves I was fiddling with my V1 adjusting the programming, and as I was about to put it back on the windsheild the laser alert went off. I actually thought it was a false, but then I got nailed again for real. The 9500ix would have saved me 1 out of the 3 times.
The 9500ix had a slight disadvantage being on the right side of the vehicle, and all of the shots were taken from the left side of the road. The V1 was on the left side. The 9500ix completely missed one of the shots, which I was surprised. I was in the open highway, and the V1 picked up scatter while I was trying to put it back on my windshield (I actually thought it was a false). Next thing I know I'm getting nailed with a full on laser alert. I see the cop standing outside his car, but the 9500ix didn't alert. The 9500ix missed a few shots, and the V1 actually missed one the 9500ix picked up.
I hear a lot of people talk how laser detection is stupid, but I had two scatter warnings in one day. I can't wait to get an LI, but I'll have to live with just a RD for now
I will say, after using the 9500ix, it is a solid detector. I love my V1, but if someone was looking for a quiet detector, it is excellent!
