The only retail outlet for the V1 is their website. Unless you want to take a chance and buy one off ebay.

Only get a V1 from their website. If you buy elsewhere you wont get a warranty which is a big thing with v1.

my bro just got it and im not impressed at all. Especially in cali it didnt do shit for him for some reason. He uses the Bel Rx65 and it works awesome. Consider both options. But dont look at online reviews ask people on this forum with both in my opinion

I just bought a V1 and its been perfect so far. One of the main reasons I got it over other competitors is that it never becomes technologically obsolete. You can have the V1 re-programmed if any new developments occur.

I have been a V1 user for 10 years. All of my cars have one and would not use any other detector. You can only get them from the web page. I tried an X50, and thought it was cheap, and missed the arrows, so ebayed it and went back to the V1.

Can you elaborate on the X50's performance in comparison to V1... sensitivity, falses etc.? Other than the arrows. Thanks.
