Escort 9500ix for me. I was debating the V1, but I love the GPS feature of the Escort. I have a lot of Red Light camera and speed traps where I live. I love that it alerts, learns, and lets me flag these. After a week or so, it pretty much learned all the false alert sources in my area. Yes, when it goes off I'm still looking around for the cop, but it saved my butt a bunch and I'd rather just slow down and look than constantly have to ignore one that false alarms. That being said, I know people with the V1. You can't go wrong either way. i also like that the GPS shows your current speed. I've found the speedo on my old 2010 335i was about 5mph off whereas my Infiniti SUV is spot on. I just picked up an 08 M3 yesterday so I'll find out today how off it is, if any.
