H.A.R.D. system

Just was wondering if anyone had any recent relevant experience with the H.A.R.D. (Helmet Assisted Radar Detection) system. If so, any thoughts to share?

Use it with V1 unit, just a matter of getting use to it. Still need to look at the unit to see what type of radar and from what direction the treat is coming from. I like the uint .

I prefer Marc Parnes Heads UP LED display. Much cheaper and much easier to install!

I have mine mounted on top of my Touratech Locking Mount for my Zumo 665. Just below eye level!

See, that's why I had chosen the remote display for the V1 and place that on the dash of my '15, where it is always in my line-of-sight!



My V1 is mounted to the rear Wunderlich bar and therefore is relatively hidden, thus:

Yeah, but you still have to look down at your V1 display to see all the goodies that you need to look at!
