Is the V1 really worth the money and is it one of the best or the best out there?
Good question. For me, I don't like people hanging behind me when the see the arrows light up on the main unit. With the remote attached, the main unit doesn't light up. I placed my remote unit dead center on top of the steering column, very easy to pick up with a quick glance.:thumbsup:I am not trying to be a smart a** but what is the purpose of a remote if the main unit is in view?
Yes, the mute capability is great if you are at a stop light and it just keeps going off while you are trying to talk to a passenger or on the phone.The main unit needs to be mounted high so it has a good front/rear view but that also means people behind you can see the LEDs; these are disabled when the remote display is present. You're also able to hit the mute without reaching your hand up to the mirror.
