I'm trying to compile all of this information into one place for quick reference. Please let me know if you see any errors or omissions.

Note: Now that the V1G2 firmware can be updated OTA, the S/N no longer correlates with firmware version. It is highly recommended you download the official V1Connection app and keep your V1G2 up to date, especially if you have never updated it before. Watch Vortex's video on how to update the V1G2 here.

me like - very clean format.

the improvements we may see with 19 are: ghost fixes and ramp up fixes?

can anyone with a 19 make comment on if those two still persist. Ole Mikey loves to keep us guessing

Found one very minor error in the table above as I was looking through my past 4 V1's:

The table says:
0801-0817 3.825 1.8 ~Sept 2005

Should be ~July or ~August 2005, as my SN 0809 was ordered on 8/10/05 and received on 8/11/05.

Also, my SN 0461 was purchased some time in 1995, but I don't have the exact date. Not sure if that's worth adding to the grid, but it might be since none of those earlier entries have dates listed.

My new V1 Gen 2 is shipping today! This will be my 5th V1.


Oh, and thanks for posting this - VERY helpful!!

This is not factual knowledge, but a great theory many of us have:
As I understand it, the last 4 are the build date in weeks. 2007 = 2020 week 07 (not calendar weeks, but production weeks)
That still gives them 999,999 serials per week. :)

And with the way the reports regarding the 360C are trending, Valentine might actually need every one of those 999,999 serials / week. :)
