Despite screeds being written on app benefits, you still don't get it.
For many of us, it fits in at the top.
App has to do with what? I personally don't like running an app for an RD. JBV1 makes the V1 usable on a basic level for me in terms of falses in urban areas. So I look forward to a comprehensive unit that doesn't need an app. What have I misinterpreted?

For me the interesting Q still remains, who becomes the target V1b/V2 market. Doubly if an app is still required to get decent city usage with it.

VR is like the Roman Empire of the industry. It deserves to be talked about ad infinitum. 20/25 years of dominance. The size of the thread speaks to that.

^^ serious.
\/ joke

We're waiting to see now if Radenso is Carthage or the Germanic tribes. Jon at Radenso as Hannibal.
Or Arminius?!?

The key word you used is We. However, We are the exception, the fruitiest of nutcakes who actually follow RDs and their associated technologies. AKA, Nerds. Don't forget, that there's a whole big world out there that # 1. Shops price 2. Shops Amazon (and blindly believes the reviews) and 3 . wants it NOW. Just like the generation that drove Olds and Pontiacs and Trans Ams is going or gone, so too is a new generation coming that won't give a rats azz about RDs.

Pfft, just got back. That pile of rubble ain't worth the visit. ONLY good thing in Roma was the food. Roma is going the way of San Francisco, lots of vagrants and homeless and grifters (gypsies).
I look at Radenso's release and Jon's push to provide the very best "affordable", I mean that in a non-asshole way as many on here will likely buy it, as a strong push in a fight we're slowly losing. At least losing if we don't wake up as a society.

That fight is driver's freedom, and ultimately freedom from surveillance and the malicious use of its power.

I hope those younger than me (30) realize this is more than just a hobby! Even though it's one I'm obsessed with lol.

But you're ultimately right, it's just us. Haven't met another enthusiast by chance, in person yet . Maybe though, things will change now that this industry isn't artificially stunted.

It's a bummer the competitive nature of this industry as been a limp dick... until now. Finally.

I hope VR implements the damn patents soon.

I just am blown away this thread is still going. 122 pages and almost 2500 posts of basically 'nothing'. This whole thread can be summed up with:

'Production parts are out of stock - will resume shipping once they are received.'

I seriously wonder if some heads on here will explode if/when the V1 resumes shipping without an update.

The topic of this thread is about and update that is pure speculation. No new solid evidence has been provided since this thread really started and I just don't see the point of it going on.....unless just for pure humor to see how many pages and how many posts it can gather.
I agree. I vote this thread gets closed and locked by the mods. Ive read all the posts in this thread and it seems to have has run its course. Because its pure speculation with a whole bunch of left turn conversations, it does not seem to offer much real value to new or veteran forum members reading through for valuable information about the V1 being updated because of the thread title. We know Mike has new patents but that has its own thread and we dont even know if the V1 will be updated, so to me this thread has a click bait title. If Mike does release or update something, a new post of value with an accurate thread title can be opened at that time.

I'm convinced that the V1 will become avaiabe
What's your preference?

Naa..just let it keep going.
Those who don't want to open the thread aren't under any obligation to do so.

Sadly, I agree. Of course as others have said, if this thread is locked others will just pop up to replace it. Better to have have just one 'nonsense' thread than many. The title is the most bothering part to myself, especially with the 'WILL' being so 'authoritative' when in reality there has been zero confirmation from the company of any significant update. Maybe if the mods just edit the title to say 'V1 MIGHT be updated' that would be a significantly better. It still leaves the possibility open for speculation during this time of 'no sales', but does not mislead people into thinking there is a confirmed update for the unit from the company. I feel sorry for any non-rdf member looking into the V1 and finding this thread, thinking they are going to hold off as a 'new' one will be released. I have no issues with the speculation going on within the thread, but the title really should be changed until there really is confirmation from the company of significant changes.

Being in my late 60's, I don't need reminding.

It's too late. Millenials are the first serious step away from self driven private transportation.
If you doubt me, look at their attitude to getting drivers licences in many countries, a lot aren't bothering, and the number of bearded t wats on electric scooters.

Yet you claim you "read them all"! Closing this thread accomplishes nothing, well other then multiple other threads on the three general topics inside this one popping up elsewhere. Is it not better to keep this all in one place? My answer is yes, keep this thread open. As others have said, if it holds no interest for you, you don't have open the Thread (or post in it as you have been doing either).

To those that are frustrated by this thread;

Don't forget that you can click the [ Ignore Thread ] button at the top and forget it exists.
RDF paid a little for that option so lets make it worth the money and use it. :)

Anyone looking into the V1 will need to hold off until they are available ( an existing or new design) from VR. Unless they are going to go to a third party.

Don't forget, we are the 1% of the 1% that buy detectors. For all we know, the other 99% of the 1% buy their detectors from Amazon, Walmart, Pilot or Best Buy.

Sorry you find the title so bothering. The title of this thread was created in good faith with the information provided at the time that sounded authoritative and reliable. As we all know this is not the case but there was never any attempt to deliberately mislead anyone. I think at the time I received my info that is what the person truly thought and then events spiraled way beyond their control.
Peace, bro.

Which isn't inherently a bad thing alone, but it is a huge shift. But I'm a millennial who daily drives a manual, Veloster N, so some of us enjoying going fast still!

But as a whole, society is evolving. I don't think many want to be bothered with driving, and shoot there are many times I'd prefer to not; part of the reason I like living in the city. But I want the option, I don't want it taken away from me entirely.

This is definitely a deeper and more complex problem. It's one that's a bummer IMHO.
