After having my V1 for about 3 days now there are some things that I have noticed about it. Some I like, some I dont.
The first thing I noticed is that the side detection is horribly weak in my car. I was being followed by a cop (about 500 yards back) and had full KA signal strength. Turn into a U-turn ramp thingy so I was now perpendicular to the road. As soon as he passed by me and was to my side the signal dropped down to 1 and then to none (when he was only 100yards past). Now perhaps this is because the radar is pointing away from me (Dont know if that matters or not), but overall I have just noticed that the side detection is really lacking (might be due to my dark [non-metallized] tints...maybe.
The other thing I noticed about the V1 is that although the Advanced Logic mode is a good idea, it doesnt really work for me. I turned the RD onto big L in hopes to get rid of the crazy amount of X I encounter. However, this only filtered out around half of it (maybe). Is there anyways I can just turn the X off?
The last thing I noticed while driving was that even some bushes may block signal strength (just an observation). I was driving and although you cant see it (due to the bushes and trees) I knew there was a gas station cops like to hang out at just ahead. So im driving...nothin on the RD, then as soon as I can actually see the gas station the KA jumps to about 4 signal strength, and sure enough, the cop was right there.
Overall to me though, the V1 seems less than it was hyped up to be. Granted I have not been using it for more than 3 days, but it just seems sort of weak to me. Maybe its my tints (I do have windshield tint), but they are suposedly non-metallized. Any ideas?
Also, how do I see what version I have. I tried holding down the mute button for like 20 seconds, but nothing happened.
Thanks for the help guys.
