I would think the Escort would be better for a daily drive since it'll learn where the false alarms are, while the V1 would be better for a road trip since it'll tell you where the signal is. Sometimes you can "out run" a signal behind you if they pull off or get someone else instead of having to slow down with every alarm. I would only consider doing this if I knew it was behind me.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
