Nice mounting location! This is exactly where I put my 9500 in my last car. Do you have any issues with the suction cups losing grip? I ended up purchasing a large single piece clamp style suction cup mount as my detector kept coming lose. Now my mount is not so subtle anymore

I agree. The GPS is a large reason many like the 9500ix, myself included.
I think the general consensus is the V1 may be a bit better for highway driving while the 9500ix is more ideal for city driving. I'm happy with the performance of my 9500, though I'm confident a V1 would be fine for me as well.
