This is the most annoying thing about the V1 but i'm guessing that it happens with all of them.?.?.? GPS can't store a moving radar source.

Not true. If i'm doing 15mph over the speed limit in the vicinity of other cars and the V1 lights up a strong radar signal from behind me i know not to hit my brakes but rather start coasting. Someone with a passport probably just did hit their brakes alerting the cop to who was speeding.

I would imagine it's only a matter of time before the V1 comes out with that option and since they have an upgrade program it won't cost an arm and a leg to get the latest & greatest they have to offer.

I've had a V1 since the early 90s when it was the size of a VCR. Has paid for itself over and over.
