Not to me! We are finding out more of what is happening and when more of us get v4.1019 or newer, we will have a good idea of what the differences are.

Not much different that the roll out of the R7, R360c, and Pro-M.

Can’t speak for the other two but R360C is a much bigger POS on release and the horn/band choices and design are kind of shit in my opinion. I personally like V1’s architecture in that regard.

I finally got my screw on perm mounts from Amazon and I'm not taking the tape off, I'm running them by sticking the good scotch velcro to the mount itself so I can remove the mount and run it in 2 different cars I drive to work. The other perm. mount will get mounted with the tape in the Boss 302 when I get another mount from VR. I still haven't had even one flicker or disconnect from my JBV1 with my V1G2.

My repaired V1G2 running V4.1019 (serial 2002) has done this at least twice that i've noticed since i've gotten it back. I tend run the stock V1 app with mine.
No custom frequencies?

I've only had this happen when running Custom Frequencies on v4.1018 in my Accord with 24.200+/- BSMs. That was on 6/26. Since that day, it's not happened again.

Looking forward to seeing how v4.1019 or newer behaves. :)

I thought about CFs, and I’ve been running them, except for a short trial period / but got Ka falses and went back to CFs.

I have also had V1 Driver disconnects with my two units on 4.1018, 2000 and 4.1019, 2007. They seem to occur when there are multiple alerts going on.
I’ll have to see if this is going on with mine.

FWIW, I've heard that these " disconnects" / "cache resets" are a known behavior at VR and that they are working at reducing them. :)

Yes my V1G2 went off when I was om top of. An officer. Blasting KA37.1
at first I was disappointed I didn’t have long detection
but then it went in to a full blast and stopped for a few seconds to regain its breathe and the started to alert again
it like jammed up

I experienced the display flicker/BT reset issue yesterday for the first time. SN 2000, FW 4.1018, running JBV1, Logic mode, USA Defaults, no CFs.

I run the detector in Auto Dark with JBV1, and the V1 display being on showing 'little L' caught my eye. I looked at JBV1, and the bogey counter was blue (V1 disconnected). I got the V1 disconnected chirp after a few seconds, then the BT light on the detector turned on and the JBV1 bogey counter turned yellow (connecting), then red (connected) after a few more seconds and the V1 display turned off. Everything worked properly for the remainder of the drive.

I'm still not sure I understand why this is happening, but I was pleased to see it "failed bright/noisy", with the V1 display defaulting to on. Hopefully they'll be able to solve this issue or at least minimize the occurrence with a future firmware update, but JBV1 handled the situation well!

@Deadhead1971, you might start looking for environmental factors that are common with these occurrences. I'd be looking at the vehicles 40 degrees to your left and right or other sources that aren't causing alerts, but still emitting some form of radar.
