I’ve had my V1 for 10 years, the same detector, and it works great still.
Recently I was enjoying a beautiful sunny day with my convertible top down. I’ve been in Texas long enough to know the weather doesn’t use turn signals, but never mind悠 put my V1 on the floor where nobody would see it and left the top down when I went into the mall.
Apparently as soon as I was inside the building the sky dumped, not just rain but hail, too. V1 was under water when I got back.
I let the detector dry out overnight and I’m delighted to report that it still works as well as it always has, the amazing amphibious V1.
