    Veil Guy's V1C FAILs to alert at OR's stew test

    After a number of delays, including one from CALDOT (although they fixed their speed sign in a very timely manner, courtesy of OR's request!), OR has shared with me that the V1C of mine with those sweeps of WS/Vortex still did not alert.

    Although I was hoping that my particular V1 (.894) with those sweeps would have shown improvement in that particular environment, I guess it does go to show you that software can only take you so far. I have to say after looking at OR's video of the test and his description to me of his particular setup, that his test does indeed seem to be an exceptional one for testing fringe detections of 34.7 Ka (as you guys who are closest to this already know). I would love to see other bands be able to be tested there as well it would be most interesting to see the results for them as well.

    A video will be forthcoming from OR.

    I expect to incorporate the results of this test (now that I know specifically how the unit I have been driving with for my extended V1 review) into my conclusion in some fashion.

    Thank you OR for investing your time and effort into testing my particular V1 and for discovering this testing venue.

    I think another take away for me from this is that quickness and reduced filtering and even exotic signal processing, obviously can only get you so far.

    I have been driving with the new Passport segmented and candidly I am not seeing dramatic improvements in detection to Ka, so far. In fact it appears that my older 8500 X50 black is outperforming it (and the Max as well!)

    I know I have read this here before (by Nine), but clearly it does start (and end) with the receiver and no software tricks after the fact can ultimately overcome that completely.

    To be clear, the V1C is still ultimately my preferred choice, at least at this point, but the detection performance of the RL (on 34.7) as evidenced in OR's test, can not be denied.

    My V1 resides in my closet. I am sold on the Beltroincs STIR, I really REALLY hope Beltronics will deliver something with the same performance as this unit or better. I have never experienced anything like it.

    I know where you're coming from. I own both and the Redline is clearly superior in range. But.........the arrows ARE a big deal, so I understand your preference for the V1.

    The STiR is the high water mark in this industry for sure. I expect to keep that puppy on my vehicle forever and while it can't detect a lot of new lasers today, supplementing it with a V1 and an active, with Veil of course is the way I roll.

    My preference for the V1 has a lot more to do with other things than just arrows.

    I would love for the next really big thing to come from Bel sans marketing BS.

    Re: Veil Guy's V1C FAILs to alert at OR's stew test

    Thanks, VG, for agreeing to do the test. It's perfectly fine to admit you like and prefer a detector that's not the king of detection range. The important thing is having the open mind and understanding the strengths and weaknesses of your setup.

    Like right now my day to day detector is still generally the Max / Max2 because it's the right combinations of features and quietness for my local threats. I know what I'll use on a highway trip.

    I'm strongly considering sending my V1 back for TMF2 both so that I can use it more locally, and for the community since I have two leaky Audi's that are good for testing the effectiveness of TMF.

    Thanks for sharing the results. This is a great test for measuring ultimate range. Did OR test your sweeps as well?

    He did indeed. They were baked in. The sweeps included my base and then Wind's and your slight mods.

    Ah gotcha. That's pretty much what I anticipated. The simple sweeps I use are what we used in previous testing here and there has yet to be a V1 here that alerts no matter the settings or sweeps.

    Even if the V1 is not the king in range, its range is still excellent and everything else it adds, in my mind, makes it a fantastic package that more than makes up for any deficiencies in range. For those times when range is the most important factor above all else, there's simply no substitute for an M3.

    That said, I'm really curious how the Stinger VIP fares here.

    A big thank you to OR and VG for doing this test!!
