I've had mine for about 2 weeks and I think it's great. I'm coming from an
older Passport(one of the old metal ones, not the new crappy ones) and the
V1 is much more sensitive. I live near Boston and the V1 has rudely
awakened me to the presence of both Ka band radar and laser. I didn't
think either was in use around here nor did my old Passport pick them up.
I did get lasered once and the cop didn't pull me over though I was
speeding. I was probably going < 10mph over the limit so this is less than
conclusive. The V1 did pick it up though.
