That's how JBV1 works sometimes. It alerts to a CSA and then alerts to radar when you are in range.
That's what I was getting at.
Not just off axis, but warning when there isn't even a transmission.:happyanim:

Deacon!
Can I Get A !Holy What?" ;-)
Again! That's What I Was Told! New Plug/Charger? Same Connector! Same Mount? Stated, "Will Work With Current Accessories"!

Pri$e Increase Is A Fact! And A Must! Due To New Internals! And Firmware! As V1 Stated!
ALL Other Updates-(Firmware of 2015/16) Were To Last Specifications On Previous Chassis!
Those Who Purchased The Last V1's In March, If You Were Lucky To Get "1", Was On 2015/16 Firmware!
And! Whatever That Fiasco Was Over Some Component Part Being Manufactured by A New Supplier!!!
Those V1's That Were Still Shipped In For Firmware Updates Was To 2015/16 Firmware!

Not This NEW-RELEASE! New Internals?!!! Chipset! Board! Turbo-Circuitry! CPU! Algorithm!
Interactive Connectivity With Mobile-App! And Auto Apps Media Center Wireless-5.0 BlueTooth!

We Went From A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing! To Hopefully Godzilla In A Wolf's Clothing!

Deacon!
Now! Can I Get An Amen Hallelujah! :)
If you're pulling my leg you're gonna break my heart.

I can't say I've been this excited for something since I bought my first V lol.

This is just what i have been saying. Why offer ppl the $79 fw upgrade if there was a complete new V1 coming out (hardware/fw). It would be a waste of $79 + shipping Ppl would be pissed
I understand but you can also buy a laptop and have a new model come out the next week. This happens with literally everything, a company can't stop selling the old one just because a new one is coming in a month.

As far as a new product, no company is going to say that a new one is coming in 2 weeks because there is a possibility something unforseen comes up last minute and they have a month long delay.

Normally I would agree with u but in this case

The hardware would be about 7 years old and fw would be about 5 years old.

I get some ppl don’t need a V1 if it a new fw and hardware but to me I would have wasted $79 + shipping I would gladly wait the time and send unit and to get the new V1 like isn’t that 1 of the reasons in getting a V1.

I don't know what upgrade you need, but if it's the most recent then the hardware and firmware are current not years old. And if it hasn't been upgraded in 7 years then that's not their fault.

So you got this NOT from the lady answering the phone but from an insider / tech person? I think that’s what I remember. There has been a lot of conflicting reports.

Your chariot is parked and ready for the parade. On the flip, so is the :yarr: plank
Agreed! So Far, Info Is Spot On!

If this pans out to be true or partially true, maybe we can get him to infiltrate escort to snoop and sleuth to see what’s going on there and report back :shadyhat::shadyhat:

I called again yesterday asking to upgrade my V1 and was again told they're waiting for parts from the manufacturer and was told the parts should arrive 'within a few weeks'.

Is it too much to ask to have a brand spanking new out of the box V1? :'(

OH-IO!
My V1 is a 3.872 model. It doesn't have custom sweeps. I run it with Ka guard off only on Ka band. X band and K band are off. I've run my V1 against @VariableWave 's new V1 with custom sweeps and JBV1 and my V1 either beat or tied his on every test we have run!
No custom sweeps updated weekly...that explains things.

The “within a few weeks” has been the standard line for the last few months. A month from now it’ll still be “within a few weeks.”

If we start hearing “within the next week” or “within a few days” then my radar antennas will perk up - Otherwise I’m going back to sleep

What did you say to them to make them spill the beans on all their upcoming plans? When others call all they get is "parts shortage," and "same version coming in a couple weeks" None of these juicy details you describe?

With all due respect, are you full of $h!t, sir? be honest..

I guess we will see in a week....
