I had one of those for 10 years before I retired it.  ;) Think is still works retired? ;)

They can be kind of hit and miss though.  One of Denver's finest wrote me for no front plate when I was wearing my "built in radar/laser/vascar... you name it blocker" ::)

My wife and I both have 8500 X50's

I like just "knowing" as well. it's saved me a few times, mine is hardwired and atuo ons with ignition, so it's simple.

I've had various models for years and like just knowing what's over the hill or around the bend, etc.

So I bought a V1 a few days ago. Figured I would give it the 30 day trial and if it proved to be annoying(too noisy)or only performed like the old Bel I already have I would send it back.

Tossed it in the car and drove from I-25/Hampden to Castle Rock. It was amazingly quiet. ???The old Bel 840i I had would false on X band all along I-25. I'm guessing it has something to do with the "light rail".

Pulled out of a parking lot in Castle Rock and the V1 went absolutely nuts!!!! Forward Arrow and alerting to "Ka" band.  I looked around and saw nothing. As I turned west the arrow switched to the rear and the V1 was still going nuts.  I scanned my rear view mirrors for about 6 blocks without seeing anything. Then about 8 cars back a big truck turned right and revieled the Douglas County Deputy behind him.  :o The Deputy also turned right and the alert switched breifly to the side and then went away.  ;D

I'm thinking I might keep the V1. I was not speeding, had no plan on speeding but it was very cool to figure out where the deputy was and that he was running his radar.  ;D Just plain a neat tool for added situational awareness.
