Oh god yes! Not that I'm proud or bragging because in a sense it's stupid but I speed a lot. Usually follow the traffic flow which here on Chicago/Indiana roads gets insane.

Why not get an integrated one? Valentine and escort have a sweet setup where the indicator goes inside your rear view mirror. Totally undetectable. And escort comes with pop feature so that will help against radar devices.

Personally, I'm using the 9500ix and it has saved me a handful of times. Still need to hardwire a power source though, I've been dealing with the dangling power cord so far.
I never used the v1 before but heard great things. I use to run the escort 8500ix and when it needed service I traded up to a 9500ix and never looked back. I love the memory feature, however the detector sometimes doesn't go off for days lol it makes me nervous if its working but I know it is.

As for your hardwire solution here it is my man
