I had my V1 Gen2 mounted for a couple of months when I went driving some northern Wisconsin backroads with a couple of friends.
We came up a hill and V1 chirped a single Ka ahead, then steadied at two bars of strength while the posted limit dropped down to 35 right before the crest. I flashed my friend ahead but it was too late—a cruiser using instant on nabbed him. Not me, though, thanks to the advanced warning and range of my Gen2. It probably alerted me a full half a mile ahead despite the hill up front.
If I had had any concerns about the wisdom of this upgrade, they’ve vanished now. Thanks, Mike!
