V1. But looking at my signature it didn't work so well.

Love the V1 that came in my car. Also came with a laser jammer (I forget the name of it) pre-installed all by previous owner. Only problem with the V1 is that it goes off passing every parking lot or supermarket and it's also become a bit of an audi detector. I'm just cautious whenever it goes off because I know theres a chance it could be a cop anyway. I think mine is just less accurate because it's an older model and doesn't differentiate radar based auto opening doors from police.

Default Re: Radar detectors

An old Escort 8500 X50 with LI laser jammers. The newer ones with GPS function would be nice, since you can block out known signals on your daily drive. That's about the only reason I would upgrade.

V1 and the StealthAssist app with my iPhone dash mounted using the Bimmian mount. Works great.

Passport 9500ix. Although, I find it to be too much of a hassle when I switch cars so it stays in my daily 95% of the time.

Default Re: Radar detectors

I have a V1 in every car. I used to have a 9500xi in the wife's car, but it actually falsed more than the V1-- the V1 is much better at filtering out the radar based cruise control and lane departure systems than the escort, and I encounter them more than the shopping center automatic doors that the escort filters out. Once I get GPS filtering added on the V1, they're be the perfect auto filtering machines
