Rory,

Do you have metallic tint on your windshield as well. Most laser will hit you head on. I have a V1 and I see the cop before he shoots me with laser. Only sometimes will I pick up laser spray on the V1. Laser is a really tough thing to detect unless it is directed towards you, even with a great detector such as the V1.

Hello,

I have been debating getting a V1 for some time now and after my recent speeding enfraction, I think I would like a little protection. Especially since this ticket could have been avoided. The problem is that I have a metalic tint on all of my windows and I know that will kill laser range and lower the radar range. Wondering if anyone out there has any personal experience with a V1 in a car with tinted windows? I know that it will not have the range that it is designed to have, but feel free to pipe in with comments or suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Best,
Rory
