    I'm in the road all the time and don't always get to go back to Arizona often to get my mail so I figured I'd swing by and get one while passing through Ohio. My 360 nearly got me a ticket in new York today so down it came and up went the r3, but I still like to have arrows so I'll use the r3 in long rural runs.

    I don't see why not, it's just another direct sale. You might have to make an appointment, and let us know how the face to face customer service goes.

    If you're going to be in the neighborhood, I'd call them and ask. I'd imagine there would be no problem but it would be a shame if you came by during lunch break and couldn't wait, or arrived right after closing.

    While you're there, check for the new V2 mounted up high possibly in a Porsche and take some pictures for the forum.

    I'm at v1 HQ now picking up my unit, it's pretty low key, everyone's been friendly both over the phone and in person.

    Don’t forget the Bluetooth LE module.

    Picked up a customer return v1 in new condition, an LE dongle, and a remote display. Definitely needs to be set up as I got jbv1 and the double beeping is driving me insane from both detector and the phone.

    Didn't see the bossman any, saw a Tesla outside which I guess may have been his?

    Both V1 and your phone have volume controls. Turn one of them down until you decide to set it up the way you want it to work.

    Dark blue S model. Didnt want to whip out the camera and start taking pictures and get kicked out. There's a walk up counter on the left, a bathroom to the far right and a little office area in the middle when you first walk in and two little signs with v1 ads by the counter and a lady with grey hair took my order.

    A V2 in a Porsche, that seems very appropriate. Aimed at London?
