The older units are unavailable as they need to be replaced in full. The newer units would just get a part upgrade to my understanding. This is why certain ones are unavailable and others are.

Can't, that's patented by Escort as far as it looks, and VR doesn't license **** from them

I'm talking about firmware updates. Radenso and Uniden are getting sued for GPS lockouts this is a seperate matter.

I was in a different city and I got nailed on by a speed on green camera 63kmh in a 50. An escort with gps database would have saved me.
So would JBV1 with marks/SC database enabled.

Read the bottom paragraph in the image...

It specifically lists a USB port and that's been mentioned in another patent of theirs as well.

To be safe VR would like have to do updates from your phone to via BT and then through ESP.

I believe they are referring to app support since it says interfaces which Valentine gets around via a dongle. Also since the dongle can run apps no reason to see why it can't do updates to the detector as well.

wow cant believe this is actually happening, the V1 is showing out of stock on valentine site which pretty much confirms a new one is coming

Don't get excited, it is only a wild rumor (without a single shred of actual proof IE pure guessing and wild conjecture). Being out of stock proves nothing, nothing. In fact, out of stock probably means there ISN'T an updated or improved V1 coming! If they were going to roll out an updated and improved V1 anytime soon, they would have already run off the very first production run of the so called rumored updated and improved V1, and it would already be in a warehouse ready to go on sale the second the last hundred or so current V1 were sold!

Another run of CURRENT V1s is coming just as soon as they receive the back ordered parts so they can do another run of current V1s so they will be back in stock.

With all due respect, I hope you eat those words, sir. :)

... No GPS but maybe integrated Bluetooth for dongle-less use of JBV1??? IN!
Integrated Bluetooth is patented by Escort.

I’ve got the r7, which I really can’t complain about, but I’m secretly hoping an updated V1 will convince me to send back my r7. I purposely bought from Best Buy in case something like this were to happen. I got a month by being an elite member l, so it will be very close.

Keep in mind Best Buy return policy is only 14 days. Not 30.

"Elite" people (spending over a certain amount per year I think) get a little longer on returns.

Nothing would make me happier! :) I hope I have to.

But then as an Engineer, reality sets in and in my mind things just don't line up especially with the history of VR. Surely Mike V would have had any improved and or updated model ready to go before stock ran out so the second it went Out of Stock, surprise look what we have. Also, if something was in the hooper, why not get it out at the ned of March before everybody shelled out $600 on an R7 (it is not like VR didn't know the R7 was coming). Being back ordered on parts for a new run of current V1 to get them back in stock is much more plausible. Again, hope I am wrong.

Of course I am dying to see what Radenso is going to come out with, but now I don't know if I can give up JBV1 after my run up to NYC and back plus todays almost 500 mile drive with only 2 BSM false alerts and one Cobra junk alert plus of course the actual radar I had to deal with. Only two BSM false alerts in almost 500 mile, simply amazing. The latest JBV1 really made for a very quiet ride today (I had to check 3 times to make sure my detector was still on and working when passing known BSM vehicles without a peep).

If this is reliable news, Mike V should reveal new V1 details and pictures, because R7 is coming on the market soon.

Does the patent only cover USB ports? Why not use a propriety cable/port?

I highly doubt it's coming anyways, but we can dream.

Doesn't Best Buy also hit you with a restocking fee on detectors? I've never returned anything there so have no idea.

Elite members get 30 days and no restocking fee. There are a couple of exceptions, but I don’t think radar detectors are are part of those excepts.

That’s why I mentioned I was an elite member so people wouldn’t think the 30 days was for everyone. I’m not usually an elite member at bestbuy, so this came at a good time.

They don’t do that anymore, but I think they can deny you if you return too many things.
