...and in other news, Mike N. was found dead after beating himself with a baseball bat found lying at the scene. Police surmise he may have also run himself over with his car to ensure his suicide was successful.
Yea, that was in Fort Marcy Park? Or found on some railroad track in AK?

Thank you Transporter....

Is it safe to say nothings changed guys and I can come back in another month.... LOL... just kidding..

Later guys.. and no... I never picked up an R7, just got tired of the V1 delays so gave up and moved on... (decided it was more exciting to choose not to speed)... ;)

(Actually have been busy on the M5 forums as I had a bunch of top end work to do on my V10 (replaced throttle and idle acs)

Check back in two weeks, I'm sure V1 will have something by then...

who gave the BS? Them saying 2 weeks or you saying hearing it for 2 years?
2 weeks was told to me by the person who answered the phone and the tech. Something is funky going on. You don't not ship units for like months because of a chinese trade wars which a different tech told me month or so ago. I don't have time for games so I've moved on. Maybe R7 or something. It's a shame as I am comfortable with the V1 including laser.

Anyone planning to sell your V1 now is the right time. The law of supply and demand. No supply, higher prices. 😉
Ironically, I had to run into a distant town today and while in a pawn shop there found a V1 with bracket but no power cable or lighter plug.. said ESP under the volume so of course my interest was peaked, asked to see it, ran the serial number and was told you have the latest and there are no updates available...

How did you check the serial #/upgrade? It's currently unavailable.

The upgrade check has always been available. If you have the current hardware version you can still send your detector for a firmware update, but updates for the older hardware version (pre ~2011) where they just send you a new detector are unavailable.

Welcome Back
Now you need a Bluetooth LE module and either V1D or JBV1.

Waiting beyond the pale
It all depends on whether or not you need a hardware upgrade, or just a firmware upgrade.

Hardware Upgrade:

Firmware Upgrade:

No Upgrade Needed:

The last 4 digits are the batch number which represents, in part, the age of the detector.

Fantastic find given the current lack of V1 supply! :) And, you already have power supplies!

Thanks. That explains it. My V1 is very old so I need a hardware upgrade.
My other one is in the same situation, I've been waiting for them to open back up for upgrade / replacments... tip, do what I did, stop waiting, try to find a new one on here in the classifieds or in a pawn shop (keep your receipt) and flog off the one neading full upgrade via replacement.

Doing a Phoenix - Las Vegas run tomorrow with it in the V10 M5, wish me luck, by the end of the day I'll either be in Vegas, or cuffs... LOL

I'd be sure the V1 is alerting before trusting it and utilize VVASE for possible laser and Vascar warnings. On open road travel, apps are less useful since, in reality, they are intelligent mute buttons and on the open road there shouldn't be much in the way of false activity (other than BSM's) to mute. Be careful, the pawn shop does not give a ticket refund guarantee.

Maybe you can delay your trip, say by two weeks...there's bound to be an all new V1 released by then.

I mean, there's been a ton of confirmation on this thread already by folks who have called V1 and spoken with someone personally that it is indeed coming in two weeks. That many people confirming the same exact story can't possibly all be wrong? That would be ludicrous...
