I am testing out radar detectors, my V1 and a K40 – and this is the first video detailing the experience, my impression and the pros and cons of each.
Please note that I am having to do this on the Down Low – because I live in the one state that still bans radar detectors. I therefore mount the units in a discreet manner, on top of the dash (using some electrical tape or similar folded back on itself) which makes the units harder for the sturmabteilungsmann to see and also much easier for me to quickly snatch off the dash and stash, in the event I find myself in close proximity to a sturmabteilungsmann.
The downside is that this Down Low mounting technique probably negatively affects the performance of a radar detector, which is supposed to be mounted higher up (usually, suction-cupped to the windshield).
However, I have found that my V1 is still very effective at sussing out the der sturmabteilungsmann, even when not mounted high. We’ll see about the K40.
