My new V1 arrived yesterday. on time, as promised, no problems.
Tried it out yesterday - didn't beep all the time like my self-cal'ed 8500 (non X50). It was so quiet I wondered if it was working.
So today I went to find the speed sign that my 8500 didn't pick up last time I went by. Found it, drove past the other way from where it was aimed and NOTHING. Turned around and drove back by and sure enough the V1 picked it up as X band 4-6 leds, at about 25 FEET from the sign (All bogeys, all factory settings). Well, better than the 8500.
Still confuses me though, this sign reports your speed at about 250 ft from the sign - you can read it a long time before the V1 goes off (or forever with the 8500).
Can anyone explain?
Took it to the local WalFart center and it was crazy - drove me nuts. Definately will have to make some changes to the factory settings.
Is X band off OK in central FL? Pop Off Ok?
Two weak Ka beeps J'ed out on drive home that was silent yesterday.
Lastly Mike's Report # 3 says:
"How to tell if V1 has been changed from factory settings." : " If the unit has been changed, P will appear briefly in the Bogey Counter soon after V1 is switched on (after the lamps-on test, but before the Mode indicator appears.)
Mine has the P on it every time it starts up. I checked all the settings and they are the default. What gives?
