My personal opinion after seeing alot of tests done on the V1. The only one that I would not get an upgrade on is a 3.813 everthing else I would.

I've been looking into the differences recently as I was debating on selling my 3.813 and based on the things I've been hearing I say keep it.
3.619 was I believe the first 1.8 firmware version, its a pre-pop, pre-J, and pre-digital temperature compensation version.
Pros:
Prepop - you don't have to worry about whether turning this on or off will affect performance
No such thing as a J out
More accurate arrows and bogey counter from what I understand
Rumored increased range
The analog units have less RDD emissions so if you ever drive through VA the spectres will need to be closer to pick you up

Cons:
You don't have pop?? (who cares)
You don't have euro mode... (again who cares)
It will go out of tune easier. You need to baby it more and take it off the windshield on a regular basis. (This can be a PITA for some while others don't mind)


You can always guy an 3.872, you can't get that 3.619 again

Keep it, save the $$$ for a jammer and/or your ZL1.

I would say keep it, basically like Riptide said in his post, I in some ways liked my Pre POP model better than my current V1 I have now.
You can always upgrade or buy new later, and I don't think the performance gain from the Pre POP models to the current V1 is worth the upgrade and/or the cost IMO from what I've seen and read.

If you're happy with it...if it never let you down...why fix what's not broken. If you really want to compare, get a 3.872 for a trial period. If you like it, keep it also. I keep almost all my old RD's.

Upgrade Dude it's better. You get a one year warranty as well. Go figure you get a one year warranty on a unit that's older than the ark.
Thats what it's all about I highly recommend you should get with the programme .

I'm not voting but if it preforms well for you I would not upgrade as all you will get is stuff you wont use POP KU EURO. My 1.36 is just about the same on all bands as my 3.872 but not programmable
