I don't think you can go wrong with either one of them. They both have their merits. I think the V1 is great for a car/truck. I believe the escort is better for the bike. The V1 gives more info on the front display but I don't look at the display on the RD on the bike. I just listen for the audio warning.aiv said:I would very much like to hear what the pros and cons are of both the V1 & Escort 8850.
Check out pirates site, he has a really slick mounting device for the detectors. I fashioned my own using a piece of angle iron, actually made of aluminum, that spans across the windshield brackets.hwajr43 said:Let's assume we have one of the above. Where's the best place to mount it on a GT?

I would like to purchase a detector for my GT; I purchase my GT used a few weeks ago, it had 800 miles on it. The previous owner had it wired for a detector I believe, there is a phone jack wired up near my handle bars. I know a friend that has a Mallet corvette that has the same phone jack mounted on his rear view mirror. He has a V1 so I assume this is what this is for.
