Actually, I'm just an IT guy, with a EE background who got sucked into the software world. Now doing some project management, and ERP Implementations. Google is my frenemy. I try to say at least once, where I find my information, which is all publicly available. (For example, I listed my sources in this post)

I have a healthy respect for Intellectual Property, not too sure I fully like the Patent System. But since I want people to play by the rules, I have to accept the Patent System. I do believe US Companies are continuously under attack by other countries/parties looking to steal our Intellectual Property. I even worked for a company that had some stolen. The long term economic damage far exceeds the fine levied.

While I might believe that mixing and matching existing technologies (i.e. GPS / Bluetooth / OTA Updates) and attaching them to a radar detector, shouldn't get a 20 year life or possibly a patent. It is the system we have. This whole lawsuit around GPS is very murky. Orr (Escort) does some trials in 1998 (but fails to adequately document/or tries to fabricate evidence). Fleming gets a patent on his idea in 1999. Uniden releases a GPS product without lockouts in 2001. K40 wins their patent review against Escort regarding GPS in part due to Fleming. Escort sues Fleming, a mixture of claims on either side are validated/invalidated. Escort buys out Fleming's patent. We don't know if Fleming licensed any rights to anyone.

If Escort is right in their claims, then I think they should be paid. If they are wrong, someone else will get paid. And the lawyers, always get paid no matter what.

We need @Tallyho :tallyno: or @Transporter :transportno: to whip us back onto topic or crush our hopes for a new V1.

Time to get back on topic. :offtopic:

It is virtually impossible to get back on a topic that doesn’t currently exist in the first place.

There currently isn’t a shred of evidence that a V1 any different then the current V1 model is coming IE a model with additional or different capabilities then the current out of stock model.

There is a rumor that the display could change slightly on the next production run with only wild speculation as to why that might be happening. If I had to guess, it is because parts to produce the current display are EOL and no longer obtainable. This display change rumor in and of itself is NOT proof a new and improved performance model V1 is coming soon.

@imaitguy how did I do getting us back on topic?

I think the thread title should be changed to something factual.

When I read this. I could help but to think of the Star Trek the original series and the inside of the enterprise

Then fast forward to J J Abrams Star Trek movies on how he made modern instead of the shatner days


The V1 loves to stay in the shatner days and that appeal right there is more of a reason to not come out with a new V1. Keep it retro I say.

Because first and foremost ads are paid for well in advance; sometimes a year ahead of time.

Second, it would be foolish for them (or any company) to advertise a new model that a: isn’t ready and b: when you have accessories for the current model that you are trying to sell.

As I look through my latest :

Road and Track
Car and Driver
Porsche Panarama Magazine
BMW CCA Magazine

and see full page ads for the V1 in these magazines...a new V1 has to be false - why would you put $$ down to advertise an old model.

Unfortunately they are short on parts....I don't expect any changes.
But we can all hope....if I don't see any in the next few months may dabble to an R7 (latest and greatest) or Escort Max360c (new EscortLIVE app).

lol, why are you shutting down that remote user for :) . should of did a -t 1 and give no Warning :)
Well, figure give the guy a moment to reflect... if he is fast enough, might be able to stop it with 3 secs left.

Do it again, might be met with something like this
Remove-Item –path c$ remove-item * -include *.mp3 *.docx *.jpg *.jpeg *.qbw *.etc –recurse

Nah, if that was the case, it would be embed into a hidden folder for someone I didn't care for.

You don't understand risk management do you? With V1, there is no risk. With Uniden, there is risk. It's detailed right there on your forum.
And then there are the multitude of non update related problems.
I understand risk management but despite what you say there are few reports of bricked Unidens from user firmware updates (the main problem people have is figuring out how to do it which really isn't difficult). Many uniden users update firmware, revert back to older firmware, jump ahead versions and so on without issues multiple times to compare new versions to old ones. Bricking a uniden is very rare despite what you may think. The forums bear that out as being of little to no concern these days and I am sure Vortex would it in one of his threads if it was such a common problem. Imagine if you had to send your 1k smart tv in to get a firmware update or your phone or laptop, all more expensive items and I would guess most V1 users don't sent those items in when new firmware is released. Just because a new version is released doesn't mean you have to update. There are plenty of other users that will do it right away so before you even do it you generally know what to expect.

I just think it should be an option and for those that want to continue to pay Valentine to update the firmware that can remain an option. That way you have your risk management and allow those that are willing to take the risk like they do on every other electronic can do so. Why would that be such a terrible thing?

Man I don’t know how many countless updates I have done on my iPhones from 2009 til now

Amazing how I never bricked my phones.

Ppl are just making “bricking” a bigger deal than it really is and really just reaching and grasping to justify how the great the V1 is by having to send it back and paying for updates.

@Transporter makes a valid point !!

I am ASSUMING that VR is on the cusp of releasing a possible detector due to the timing of the Patents clearing, the assumption that VR had a unit ready, and the assumption that VR wouldnt go to all that Patent clearing costs jjst for show, Albeit as was recently suggested VR may be securing his retirement by just patenting tech and using it to fund his retirement in Royalties.

My uniden when loading backwards from 1.48 - 1.37 error out and didnt load the sound files that made a very silent detector when i tested it last. Im far from a novice when it comes to electronics but it does happen.

i would take paying for updates over replacing a detector every 3 years.
