I’m leaving on a trip and traveling through Virginia. Do I need to worry about being detected with my V1G2 or should I turn it off? I know that it’s supposed to be undetectable but I’d hate to risk losing a $500 detector.

No need to worry at all as long as it's not visibly hanging in the middle of your windshield. It's RDD immune.

Also, they don't take the detector from you. They get the serial number off of it and make you put it in the trunk and give you a ticket that doesn't affect your insurance. (According to a personal friend, and my Father, and many here at RDF)

I used to drive in VA with my Gen1 and have never been stopped with it. :)

With the Escort I got a $75 ticket and he gave it back. RDD pickup from the medium strip. When I got to MD and put it back the windshield, the fuse was melted. 500 miles with no RD. OK, so that was back in the mid 2000s... I never forget a ticket...

I've run a V1G1 for years in VA without any issues. However, there's a few tricks for running it. For one, mounting up high tucked up to headliner, hardwired, concealed display or apps. You don't want anything lighting up that can draw attention. Also, a kill switch is a must as many VSP are Spectre equipped. With that said, I haven't had any issues using the V1 in VA but worst case it's just a fine, roughly $100. Normal procedure is they just write the serial number on the ticket and hand the RD back to you.

You'll be fine. Just don't get caught doing over 80 on the interstate. It's reckless driving I think....could get you a weekend in lockup.

I got caught in Fairax county with my V1 years ago. He caught it with his RDD setup. Fine only. Switched to R3 and now V1 G2.
