SAVVY FOR V1 RADAR DETECTORS
SAVVY IMPROVES SITUATION AWARENESS,
CUTS THE NOISE.
Situation Awareness means setting priorities—
knowing which threats to focus on at any given
time. In halting urban traffic and mall parking
lots, the unexpected moves of other drivers are
a far greater hazard than radar.
So that you can keep your attention
where it belongs, SAVVY turns down the
volume of V1’s warning automatically at
SAVVY has just one control, a thumb wheel that
lets you select a speed threshold. Below your
threshold, the loudness of each new alert
comes through on V1’s Muted Volume (set this
with V1’s Control Lever). Above the threshold
you hear the normal loudness you’ve set with
the V1’s Control Knob.
SAVVY stays nearly out of sight down under
your steering column where it serves as V1’s
power source. It replaces the Lighter Adapter
or the Direct-wire Power Adapter. Just plug it
into the OBD diagnostic port, standard on
every new car and light truck built since
January 1, 1996. Then plug V1’s power cord
into one of the two, built-in RJ-11 jacks (the
other jack powers all V1 accessories). The
thumbwheel has eight settings from 15 to
65 mph. Choose one, or select the AUTO
setting to mute all alerts, or the NONE
setting to switch off automatic muting. You’re
ready to go.
SAVVY is ideal for those who want to hide
V1’s power cord. We include two wire clips
and a beaded tie strap to secure the power
cord to V1.
SAVVY fits in the palm of your hand and weights
just 2.2 ounces.
SAVVY works with V1s of any age; buy it as an
accessory or paired with a new V1 at a special
SAVVY draws a small current from the car battery even with the
ignition switched off. Use caution in vehicles with
weak batteries, or that go for long periods without being driven.
OnStar® cannot run its full diagnostic test if SAVVY or any other device
is plugged into the OBD port. SAVVY does not interfere with any
other OnStar function.
