I have a V1 3.858 that I purchased in early 2005. I have never had it serviced ,but for the most part have had no real issues with the exception of some weaker Ka detections.
Here are my options: 1) I could send in for tune-up(approx $40) ; 2) upgrade to latest V1 version ($199 for my serial#) ; or 3) purchase a new Redline (RDR/Band Seg)from escort($499).
In light of these options would the V1 update offer 1) better detection (esp. Ka 35.5) over my current V1 or is it just mainly hardware changes? and 2)Band segmentation like redline?
I LOVE the directional arrows, but am wondering if redline would be worth the extra money and giving up the arrows vs upgrade to latest v1. Thanks in advance
update: has change from magnesium case to plastic caused any glare problems for any redline users?
