The thinner display does indeed look really nice. If I went for a custom, I would wait for the colored option. I think it would be more informative at quick glance to see color and strength vs the all red. I didn’t think I was interested in one at all since the detector is easy enough to see but with the examples in the video from Vortex, I see now what people are doing with them. It could be nice to have the detector off and not visible through the back window. So, I will wait and watch for a colored version and go from there.

I think I can use a splitter to make this work. Currently have a BTLE in the aux port because I use JBV1 and V1Driver at the same time.

Indeed. I'm waiting for a thin one with colored bands from him.

It's actually a "2-line coupler" that you need to have 2 devices using the same aux port. ;)
Valentine's website has some info on them.

Looks great!

I'm debating on whether or not purchasing one is worth the investment.

As I've said in other threads, my V1G2 is the first V1 that I've owned...

Any first impressions/thoughts/use case?

Installed mine tonight. I may try sensor mode in JBV1. I kind of like how the main display is on during the day, turns off during the night. I will end up most likely keeping the main display off.

I'm certainly running JBV1! There's no better 3rd party app for it IMO.

I'll definitely keep my eye on it. Thanks!

Why is the purple screen removed? I thought the led would shine though just fine.

That's the reason I opted out of the fcd color display for the v1g2. I prefer the stealthier look of the purple screen.

Although this is a Gen1 ESP display that I modified, I think it could look good with this kind of treatment.

That frame/bracket looks pretty nice with the blacked out look.
