Adaptiv

I was in a dealership the other day and the topic of radar detectors came up.
Now, I've always thought the way to go was with a V1, but I've been out of the loop for so long (haven't owned a cage for 14 years) what would I know?
Anyway, it was suggested that I look at an Adaptiv detector. Specifically made for motorcycles. I won't reveal how he came to know it worked real, real well.

I brought up the V1 and was told his experience was they couldn't take the moisture and after several returns to the manufacturer he was told they wouldn't fix it again for him.
So.....anyone with one of the Adaptiv detectors?

Wink Re: Adaptiv

I've had one for several years now and don't ride without it! It has been completely weatherproof and even crash survivable! I actually purchased a certificate for one at the CCR Silent Auction and managed to acquire it for a song. And the company has been supportive. When I had a problem with the mount they provided an updated one as an exchange for no charge!

It won't give you directions like the V-1, but it does a good job of detecting, even behind you!

Re: Adaptiv

I just purchased a V1 and used it on a quick trip in my truck from SoCal to the Canadian border and back to move my mother in law. Wow ... Loved it and the directional arrows and differentiation between junk signals, side signals to safely ignore, etc. seem like options I wouldn't want to lose. I don't have any experience with detectors in the past beyond my son quitting using a cheap one due to too many false indicators.

I am building a mount utilizing the mirror mounts, RAM components and a Pelican water proof 1020 box (based on a post by Dshealey on another thread.) hopefully that addresses the moisture issue you referenced.
