No doubt, it really depends on where you live and drive. Here in the Northeast, the V1 works great for me. I almost never see laser, the biggest threats are instant-on radar which I have run across in NH (so the more range, the better, so you get warned when cars ahead of you are targeted), and troopers coming up from behind in stealth mode, which could happen anywhere. I try to avoid being first or last in a pack.
