Stopped in to to see if they were still around, they are. The business front is very low key though right now, no displays out and the front window was blocked off with a partition. Mike's Porsche was out front though, no V2 visible though lol.

Just checking....

10280 is the customer entrance, and 10278 is the employee entrance.

What's that under his grille? Did I make you look? LOL

I'm completely baffled by this company. They haven't had a radar detector for sale since April. They missed the summer driving season. They seem to exist on accessory sales and repair of old units. Are they trying to just fade off, who knows?

The lady that runs the front desk emphasized that they changed manufacturers for the needed parts that the old one wasn't made anymore. @Bossdad71 was on the phone with me while I walked in there and he was an audio witness .

I'm humming "Every move you make". The stalkers anthem.
I think at this point it's reached Rockwell level. LOL

More of a welfare check to see if they are still there and if Mike is even around

The old part was not made anymore or the old V1? Can you please clarify that comment? It is August and since my conversation with her, they should have their “parts” this month. We will see, my wallet will be waiting.

The manufacturer they previously used to make whatever part they are waiting on no longer made that part, so they had to find another place to have it made and that batch is supposed to be due this month, but we''ll see. Thats why I made a trip down there since it was on my way back to my work place from a delivery in VA. I did tell her that many people including myself were waiting for the chance to get a unit and she said people have been calling wanting to buy on the phone, she looked like she was 100 years old the lady did.

There is nothingto be baffled about. Mike V has millions in the bank and the company has low expenses. They are not hurting for money.

Exactly what I said in May, waiting on parts to do a production run of current model V1s. It will NOT be a new and improved V1, though it might have an updated display or changed case to deal with the replacement parts. But we can all still hope.

I was honestly expecting weeds in the parking lot and the door to be locked with a for lease sign put up.

You go deep undercover and find out. When you do, we'll be here.

Are those parking sensors peeking out?

Wonder what he uses... I mean obvious answer seems like it should be easy enough but how is his tuned or what is his actual daily CM getup?

I don't know, I didn't prowl around his car any, I took that pic out of the back window of my car.

I didn't see one, probably takes it inside. He preaches in the manual to take it down when not being used.
