The best part is the escort has GPS so after you pass a bank or a building more than twice it stores it and stops it from going off. If it goes off know on roads I normally travel I know to slow down asap.
I have the same setup. The 9500 is not cheap but is a great unit.

Guys, I am considering getting a V1 too but I am just wondering how their "concealed display module" works?
If I got it right, this module is what I can see in the picture that RI55 posted, right? But I was just wondering:

- is there a wireless connection between this module and the main unit?
- since I will simply put my V1 on my front windshield behind the rear view mirror... is there a real benefit to get the concealed display module???

Thanks for your comments!

It's not wireless. I just have mine mounted by my rear view mirror, I like having the display up there. Got nailed with "instant on" last week though V1 lit up full blast, but it was too late. Got out of the ticket though

Thanks for the info!! I am not sure what the advantage is then...

BTW, how is it possible that you got a sudden message? Laser?? Where you fast?

cop was sitting with the radar gun off. just as I came up he turned it on to get me.... basically he got me, the same time my V1 got him and by then it's too late.

I put mine behind the rearview too. I like the conceal display location in the tray just for the mute button access. Call me lazy, I like my controls by the shifter, that and if a copper is behind me and shoots the radar he wont see a bunch of blinkin red lights coming from my windshield. Just stealth preference, I guess.

I'd been using my V1 since 2000, best unit out there then, still the best now.

Saw an (MTA?) cop at the Brooklyn entrance to the Verrazzanno with a laser. Didn't think they were shooting direct fire in the city... Just be on the lookout all.
