Even in Hong Kong, I went through all the trouble to get a V1 shipped to me, as they wouldn't ship one over here....while Bel is being sold here at about 40% less than the V1.
The V1 is really a gem and has proved itself last weekend since I have had it for just about 4 weeks. I was on the highway and there was this camera that was taking pictures from behind. ( Most of the fixed speeding cameras in Hong Kong are like that). The front and back Idea is just fab!
BTW, I also got the display, as it makes it easier to read. As in NA, you drive on the left while in Hong Kong we drive on the right.
v1 def hands down the best and has been since it came out but lets face it all radar detectors are good for is if u got tints or other things casue cops usally flick them on as ur passing them a radar once in a while will get the lazy cop laying there with his gun on while he is eating donuts and sleeping but i would def spend the extra money getting a v1 i had mine for 5 years now and it saved me alot of tickets i will post some picks of it hard wired to it looks good as hell on top of the dash looks like it belings there
