I just spoke with John Turner because I wanted to see why they would be selling a V1 for a whopping 489.95 when you could easily get it from manufacturer at 399.00. He says its for people who are overseas. He also says that before he ships anything out, he tests the product to make sure it works to specifications. He said that in his opinion, X50 was best because of less falses. He also said that V1 isn't as good at detecting laser as everybody thinks. That if a cop doesnt shoot you in the windshield, the V1 wont pick it up 50 percent of time. Is this true or is he just pulling my leg??? Which leads me to another question. How far must one be in order NOT to get a signal. In other words, what is the max distance that a V1 can pick up a signal on the most difficult gun there is (which I would imagine would be Atlanta stealth mode) I've seen data at GOL, but the V1 has detected on every picture at least 1000 ft and doesnt show what would happen beyond that. Thanks.
