The message that was displayed "Shipping on or Before 8/7/2020" has been removed. From replies here it didn't seem like they were really that far on backorder anyways. Unfortunately the upgrades are still on backorder and still suspended.

Suggestion for next round of upgrades: Option for Advanced Replacement. Purchase a new RD and in the upgrade form you would put the order number of your purchase and they would refund the upgrade difference once they processed it. It would also prevent being without your RD for any long period of time.

After getting my upgrade unit back this week and experiencing it's performance I ordered another one rather than wait for the upgrade program to open back up again for my second V1G. It's a well worth while investment.

I wish I would have just ordered one too. I honestly thought I would have had it by last Friday at the latest. I thought for how old mine was it wasn’t going to fetch too much more on eBay than the trade in so I just did the lazy thing.

I just got a shipment notification from Cincinnati that something's on the way. Wonder what that could be. From Sales Department. 10280 Alliance Road. I have a guess. No email, no cashed check. Yet. This was a Gen 1 upgrade BTW.

That's what the notification says. I didn't pay extra for expedited shipping. I would discourage anyone from doing that since it's a difference of one day. I'm in TX so it's not like I'm nearby.

Actually I sent it in the first day they resumed the upgrades so it took them 8 business days by my calculation to turn it around.

If I would have known that I could have sent a bag of gold coins by rail car and delivery person.

I’m in metro Detroit/Flint so Ground =next day for me. Unless the package gets bumped for something else.

If you've waited this long, you can wait a little longer. You never know, maybe something better is on the way!

Probably not. What I see here in Michigan is very simple. The only threats I see are police in cars or motorcycles. Very simple and straightforward.

Are you working overtime?

Buy American 🇺🇲, support a business that kept its doors open despite not selling its main product for a year!

Then they released the V1 G2!

If you're outside of the US, buy what's most appropriate for you!

It's a great product but don't just trust me, anyone reading this, look to other members as well!

Some thoughts on my G1 to G2 upgrade I received today. I was surprised to see when I opened the box the old power cord and old mounting bracket enclosed. I sent them those things as a just-to-be-sure gesture. Not that I needed them but that it was a sign of respect to this graybeard V1 customer. The first thing I did was connect to the official V1 app and looked at the firmware. Yes, it was updated to the latest version. Turn off X band, select logic mode, check check. Connect to JBV1 app with the newbie settings loaded up....check. Initial setup was very quick.

On the road in logic mode very quiet. I have JBV1 configured to autoconnect (quite convenient) and expect the few K band falses in my area to be locked out in a few days.

The display.... bright and legible! It's so hard to see these new displays. I couldn't make heads or tails out of what I was seeing from Radenso, Uniden or Escort. The traditional big red arrows....yes to the old ways.

Anyway that's it for first impressions. The JBV1 app is so useful and convenient. This is a generous, no brainier upgrade IMO.
