Alright, here it is. What is the best radar detector ? I've had the Escort Passport with the red display but didn't like it. Is the V1 any good ? I really need some advice because I don't feel like dropping $500 on a POS.

Once you have operated with "the arrows" you cannot imagine driving without them. The early detection of multiple bogeys is a great advantage.
POP and instant on detection... superior.
93 rating when next best detector rates at only a 79 (R&T). Scale of 1-100 with 100 rep. best. Similar results in unbiased tests.
Sensitivity. False signal rejection. Detection distance. V1 rules.
That is all...
i have a V1, and its truely an amazing device, you can actually drive around without constantly checking that your not 2 miles over the speed limit. It's especially usefull when over taking pesky trucks and old ladies and you're not sure if there are cops around.
I love the V1 and couldnt reccomend anything above it!
