    EDIT:

    figured i would cite sources: RadarTest.com - Best radar detector reviews from the world's most respected authority.

    X band is the only edge the V1 has, and that should only concern you if you are in New Jersey...

    for laser detection I have the front/rear ZR4s, Laser Veil, and diffusing plate covers (for when there are plates on the car)
    And someone else falls for the radartest.com shill site... do more research, especially regarding that site and Craig Peterson. Crap like this for example.

    Also, buying a V1 from an unauthorized reseller might hurt your eligibility for Valentine's upgrade program.

    9500 is in my truck now though

    But an FYI for those with nav. Not sure if it just pertains to the built in Nav though, I don't have a portable to try it on.
    Thats really really weird. It interfered with the idrive nav? I used mine in the 335 for a looong time without anything going on. What would happen? I've never heard of that b4... interesting...
