My dad and I compared radar detectors shortly
after that. He had one like my old radar detector
and we were coming up to a hill and my V1 was
going nuts wayyy before his detector went off. He
had no clue why I was slowing down when I was,
then he finally found out when his started going
off about 5 seconds later. 5 seconds is a lot of
safety margin to save your butt from a ticket.
Just use your $300 tax refund to buy it, then it
will only end up costing you $100 out of pocket.
I sold my old POS radar detector for $75, so it
only cost me $25 to upgrade to the V1 ;-P
