I like V1, but lots of falses.
Love the arrows.
GPS isn't worth much where I live, IMO. I learn to ignore certain false positives because the V1 tells me where the source is coming from (which no others do) and is more sensitive than any other detector out there.IMO, don't buy one without GPS. GPS allows you to negate recurring false alarms, and some models even have a networked app for your phone that lets people label speed traps when they see them.
Also keep in mind that most departments use laser some/most of the time nowadays, so unless you invest in a complete laser jamming system, you are only partly protected anyway.
They're legal for private car owners everywhere in the US but VA and DC. Just illegal in Illinois for commercial vehicles like semi trucks.I live in illinois and I think they are illigal so does anyone know of radar detectors that are hidden that work good?
It makes different sounds depending on the band... Laser is a unique sound, K and Ka are another sound, and X is yet another sound.one thing i hate about the V1 is its just beeps - you can't tell what kind of signal band it is. and the indicator for the signal band is a small stack of all red lights, so you hear a beep and see a red light... but what does that mean?!
@ paragraph 1: +1, this is correctThey're legal for private car owners everywhere in the US but VA and DC. Just illegal in Illinois for commercial vehicles like semi trucks.
If you want a truly hidden system visually look into Escort's "installed" systems, but they're a lot of cash to drop for the same functionality IMO, unless you want laser jammers (which are illegal in almost every state these days).
Really? I know that in California it was the opposite for a long time: detectors were legal but having stuff mounted on your windshield (including a detector) wasn't, so hidden detectors were the only legal kind.@ paragraph 1: +1, this is correct
@ paragraph 2: I haven't verified this recently, but as of a couple of years ago, to the best of my knowledge, all states but DC and VA allowed windshield detectors, but many states had hidden detectors as illegal. Also, radar jammers are highly illegal, but I thought laser jammers were legal.
Yes, but K-band makes a different sound and announcement than Ka-band, so in places where the police use Ka you can tell it's not a cop immediately.It's frustrating, as the V1 detects Audi and Buick collision warning sensors , since they somehow lie in the K band.
Does the Escort/other brands detect those as radar?
