As I said, I myself have not used the V1G2. I know you do, and I know paired to the Phone App it does work really well. I also know it can provide decent protection against the redflex. Relative to the R7 against the same van on the same day in the same location, I genuinely have no idea which would have the edge over the other. It would also depend on firmware installed. My feeling is that they are probably very close to each other when optimised for NZ conditions.With all due respect Mithheru, DC Fluid was such a rabid anti VR member that I ignored him, he's since had some enlightenment and uses Gen 2, but he's no expert. When it comes to testing I prefer guys like Kenny C56 who were converted from their very effective ghetto systems to Gen 2.
But I am referring to the totality of the JBV1/Gen 2 system as a countermeasure not just range.
However, my preference is for a detector which I can just turn on and let it do everything, and generally only alert me when I need it to. The V1G2 adds bluetooth and can be paired to the phone. However, it does need pairing to the phone to get the most out of it. For me, for short trips even 10 minutes away includes multiple stretches where people regularly get pulled over. Therefore I always use a detector if for nothing else than just for seeing what threats are around on any given day.
