    yes i believe so but the problem is V1's high resale value, you are generally better off buying a brand new V1 from V1's site than buying use one from ebay than upgrade. the v1.8 sells for 350-375w/o shipping then to upgrade to pop2 is $55w/o shipping. And buying new from V1 means you get ever accessory with it

    Yeah i was bidding on V1's for 300 max if they were 1.8, but after people bidding 375-390 is better to get from the factory cause then you get ever accesory most on ebay are windsheild mount and power cord

    If it's a stolen unit on ebay VR might ask some questions.

    Matt,

    Stick with your X50. There is no reason for you to buy a V1.
    RIP Duncan my BELOVED black lab son 8/7/99-3/23/11. I will miss you DEARLY.

    You'll have no problem upgrading it. Just make sure the seller is legit and has good feedback etc.....

    However, as has been said before, with the V1s selling so close to retail value... I'd run the math first to see which path would save you more money. Keep in mind shipping costs etc.

    I was looking at the same thing. It's almost cheaper to just order a new one than order a used one and have it upgraded. Depends on the deal though I bet the "good" deals are few and far-between.

    I was just reading the owners manual and it says the "warranty" is limited to the orignal owner. I'm not sure how this would work towards an upgrade, perhaps once the upgrade is purchased they would then reissue you a warranty?
