First post here! My name is Steve and I bought myself a V1 specifically to use for the my July 4th trip to the mountains. I swore to myself that I would return it after the weekend (you'll see why below), but after feeling so secure in my car and finding this community/learning about all of the little settings you can change, I'm seriously debating it.
Here is my dilemma. I currently live in Santa Monica and recently got a new job that is only a mile away... in Santa Monica. Im not doing too much speeding during my daily commute to say the least (I walk every once in a while as well). I do drive around into the valley/other parts of the city on the weekends and on rare occasions, for client meetings during the week. Do you guys think it is worth investing $400 in a radar detector when I'm not doing that much driving? As I said, the geek in me is telling me to keep it, but I'd like to hear your thoughts .
While I have my V1, I'd like to try configuring my settings. I was wondering if anyone can anyone point me in the right direction for optimizing my settings for my area? I am mostly driving around Santa Monica, Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley, and on rare occasions, into Ventura county. Are the settings that I found in the sticky sufficient for this area?
Any advice/help would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance... looking forward to chatting.
