This weekend I went from El Paso, Texas to Auston, Texas and back this is what I actually encountered using both radar detectors at the same time and these are my thoughts on both. I think the V1 is good because you can tell what direction front or back and how many police are out there at the same time. I actually had 3 at the same time going in the same direction on the other side of the road back to back. I when I used both radar detectors at the same time I put the V1 at the top of the rear view mirror and the Bel Sti Driver on the driver side far left corner sitting a little below eye level, to peek around vehicles in front of me and to get a good view of traffic on the other side of the road where I would encounter state troopers
trying to clock my speed. There were allot of state troopers out here on the high way in Texas due to the up coming 4th of July travel. They were all using Pop or instant on KA radar, and they were no match for both of my detectors. Non of them used laser and if they did I have a Blinder laser gun Jammer for that.
The V1 worked the best IMO because I could tell when the police was behind or in front of me. Both radar detectors took turns on which would alert me first. The Bel STi had the advantage just a little because it got full view of the other side of the road when a car would be in front of me. The V1 was really good in Rear alerts it kept on going and picking up pointing to the rear direction after I passed a state Trooper the Bel STi turned off a few seconds after I passed
I will leave it up to you which one you pick. If you have to travel through Virginia anytime soon or ever get the Bel Sti
If not get the V1
I have the Bel STi driver and Blinder M25 laser Jammer combo for my wife car this is the car I was driving for the trip. I got the V1 with consealed display along with a LI (Laser Interceptor) combo for my M3 when ever I get it from being shipped to me
what ever radar detector you get good luck
