Yep it's actually a little better than the V1 depending on what version V1 you have the latest I think being 1.7. The 8500 is one of the King of the road with radar detection it would be the TOP best if it had that directional display that does help a lot.BIGBULS said:I have no urge to buy this since I already have a V1, but my girlfriend DOES have an 8500 (2 months old), and I can tell you that sensitivity-wise, this thing is VERY close to matching a V1.
But *I* also like to know what direction I'm getting tagged from too
I should also point out..............the 8500 has a nice little in-built voltmeter for those with big stereos. Add to that a slightly different take on the V1's "bogey counter", and it's certainly a worthy addition to anyone's dash/windsheild.
In all.............a good product, and not such a bad price either.
