Unless if he's going to NY, then he would have to get a different detector. LOLWhat? I didn't say anything .
V1G2 is the best detector ever made and has no problems to speak of. If God drove a car he'd run a V1G2.
You are right. Valintine didn't sell a detector for almost a year you would think he would have added MRCD/CT and red light & speed cam to it.I didn't know that about the V1G2. You'd think for $500 they'd have that pat down huh?
Don't get me wrong, I wish I had done a little more research before purchasing the cobra..If it works for you that's grate & your saving $$$ and getting good performance. Texas is wide open here in the northeast we have trees hills mountains traffic and buildings all around us. It cuts down the radar signal and you need a very sensitive detector to do the job. I tell anyone who asks me the best bang for the buck detector right now is the Uniden R3. It's right up their in range and features with detectors costing $200 to 400 more. It's selling now for about $300 and you can pick up a factory renewed one for $225. It doesn't have arrows but at that price who cares.
I have yet to find any contradictory evidence to the recommendations found on Vortex Radar website regarding recommendations for detectors.Don't get me wrong, I wish I had done a little more research before purchasing the cobra..
and I'll definitely be investing in a different unit sometime in the near future.
This time I'm definitely going to be doing my homework, lol!
So what is considered a sensitive detector? I only have the cobra 480i to go off, but even this unit I had to turn down the sensitivity to medium to avoid it picking up non-threat sources all the time. Yet it still picks up an active gun well before there's a line of sight.
Finally, what's the typical range for a gun? I always wonder when I'm actually safe to speed up after passing an officer... Ive been doing so only when the signal totally ceases but that's often way past line of sight.
