Man WTH ??

Think I'm ok. I will find out in a week I think. At least that is what they tell me. Not going to the hospital as I haven't had a Health Plan in over 20 years.

Heres what happened.

Hey Buddy!... You'll love it... I have had the V1gen2 since March and so far with no problems...Is it perfect hell No as it does have some issues / quirks like :
- Ramp up seems slower than original.
- Transition of arrows are not as smooth as Gen 1, seems to hang on longer before transitioning.
- The REAR radar detection sensitivity needs to be adjustable/programable (seems to be too strong IMO)
- Push button (power on/off) takes a little getting use to compared to the knob on Gen1.
- There does seem to be some ghosting issues (not sure what that's all about) NOT serious or consistent.
- List of problems encountered in "Gen2 List of Mechanical Issues" Thread.

None of the above mentioned quirks/issues are deal breakers and most owners including myself, believe that these issues (excluding the knob) can and will be addressed with future firmware updates. The positives and likes are too numerous to mention here... One thing that is for sure the Gen2 is KILLER on Ka 34.7 and 35.5 on or off axis! I have liked mine so well that I sold my Radenso Pro M... IMO the BSM on the Gen2 is the best on the market currently as well as non Ka falsing... This is a detector that seems to grow on you... You'll see what I mean...:p

I'm not sure if this thread is about you getting a V1 Gen 2., about your health, or about that lion harassing that sheep.... :D

I knew it was just a matter of time! Once a F%^&%$# zombie, always one, myself included! As much as I loved my ole' 3.872, it wasn't in the same world as this damn thing!

The V1G2 is a beast. Plain and simple. @benzr , I hope you enjoy the V1G2.

I had to read your post a couple of times at first I thought you were injured, then I figured it out. It has been a long day for me, and my brain is operating at 50%. Taking a few days off work.

I am putting my V1G2 to the test this weekend. Headed east to NC. I hope the TN Troopers and NC Troopers are out shooting radar so I can put my V1G2 to the test.

Yeah, I have encountered some of that β€œwonderful” 35.5 in NC a while back with my R3 which did very well with it. My city’s police department uses some 35.5 (mostly C/O), and the V1G2 does very well with it, but I know I/O is the primary game in NC.

Most of what I encounter in west TN is 34.7 with the Troopers, but in the middle and eastern part of the state they mix in some laser with the 34.7 from what I hear.

THP also won't hesitate to I/O in moving mode. I haven't seen as much from them lately as I did in years past but I also haven't spent nearly enough time in TN this year. But as soon as I get done with the exes in TX...

He's right, @benzr.
You're gonna enjoy the g2 a lot.

It'll probably replace my r7 on the dash as my main detector once all the issues are updated out.
