Default New V1 coming?

Anybody else excited about the rumors of a new Valentine 1 possibly coming to market.
Has anybody heard about this?
The V1 store has had the V1 listed as "Temporarily Out of Stock" for a few weeks now and that is creating interwebs rumors that a new model may be coming soon.

Here's one of the threads with gossip about this:

I wonder if they will do the upgrade for it?

Me too. My V1 is about 10 years old and going strong, but it looks dated.
I'm hoping that they update the looks to bring it up to speed with current design. Adding GPS, or a way to mute at low speeds would be great too.

The Escort Max 360c has that and a lot more, but it is expensive.

I have the V1 and the remote display so people behind me don't see flashing red... like the coppers.😉 It has a mute button. So does the detector but your reaching to mute it is very visable. I have the remote low and can mute it outta sight from most angles.

I had a V1 for a while until someone stole it. I can turn on dark mode on a 360c so no indicators flash and it auto-mutes also. GPS tagging to eliminate fixed radar sources, blocking specific frequencies on K-band to reduce false alarms, direction arrows to show where the radar source is, GPS calculated speed display, WiFi for downloading the Defender database of speed traps, red light cameras, speed cameras, even air patrol planes...it's got everything.

They’ve been out of stock longer than a few weeks. I tried to upgrade around May and the store was out of stock so I called the company and they told me middle of June, It’s now August and still nothing. Either they are planning a revamp or tossing in the towel.

I’m now seriously considering the Uniden R7 or the Escort Max 360c.
Hopefully V1 will have some news before I pull the trigger on a new unit.

I love my V1. But I'm colorblind. I hope they change the color scheme for the lights. I can't see a damned thing on it if I have sunglasses on, and barely anything with my regular glasses. I just go by the beeps.

I'm a salesperson at an Infiniti Dealer in the Bay Area. Since many interweb jockeys think all salesmen are untruthful scum, certain users here suggested I put in a signature so you can completely disregard everything I say. YMMV.

You can PM or Email Me if you are around Northern California and want help with your Infiniti purchase decision.
