Having spent a little time behind a V1 years ago, I thought the arrows were a neat engineering feat when no other detector had ‘em.
I have no overwhelming desire for arrows now, although I still think it’s a pretty trick feature.
My question is... How do the side arrows work? V1s, R7s, etc. have a front horn and a rear horn. Do they just illuminate the side arrows when they get simultaneous front & rear signals on the same frequency or something like that? Just curious.

I think it's more that whatever signal strength comparison algorithm they are using says the signal strength to both the front and rear horns from the same signal is about equal.

You know, they don’t always work perfectly on my R7, but they do work pretty well. I enjoy having the arrows and it would be hard to go without them now.

For the V1 at least from my observations.

Stronger signal to the front, the front arrows illuminate.
Stronger signal to the rear, the rear arrows illuminate.
When strength is about equal (front to rear) the side arrows illuminate. Signal strength does assist with this as well.

Thanks for the replies. That's what I figured.
I was just curious.

If F = >X value then F=1
R = >X value then R=1
If F== R then S=1
;F=front
;R=rear
;S=side
;1= on
;Something like that lol
