Mithheru is more than a fanboy, he actually improves product for the market. And spends a lot of unpaid time doing so from what I can tell.
People like him and JB deserve a lot respect no matter what brand they support.
VR said, when I asked about bike use, if it gets wet your wallet will be sad. I'd send it back for proper inspection and drying. Don't power it on, all the electricity might escape in a cloud of smoke.
$NZ550 US retail, shipping for a dozen units = say $NZ20 each, GST = $NZ85.50 each. $655.50 total or thereabouts. And a dealer would get a wholesale rate more than likely.
That's nothing but a rip off. Import your own.
Having tried JBV1, it seems the OP is not afraid to try new things. It can be daunting, but the best way is to start with defaults.
Running it with Gen 2 is just icing on the cake. How about telling your detector to mute? Or to verbally reporting a speed trap?
I've found that most people now, compared to 40 years ago, have little knowledge of car systems at all. But those that are petrolheads, and are addicted to the zoom factor, are different. These people have always been the detector buyers. The great unwashed have never been interested, most can...

Since then V1 has been had a major part of the high end detector market. Arrows are...
Last Sunday, 1.4 km's against 34.7 Stalker. The cop was facing us parked behind a customer, the detection was around 3 - 4 moderate curves with slight elevation changes. There was higher ground to the side of the road as well. He didn't come into view until the last 200 - 300 metres.
My Gen 2's cost around $NZ1000 all up when the dollar was at 62 cents, it's now 72. Shipit 2 seems to have a good name, I haven't used them yet but have registered. They don't act as tax collectors for Inland Revenue like Youshop. You may slip it through without being pinged for GST.
Or get a...
