I usually just slow down as soon as i hear a KA band beep and then I just try and spot the police officer. It is actually pretty fun.
The cost of the V1 is less than a typical speeding ticket and has absolutely saved me several times over on trips from San Francisco to LA. I strongly recommend the V1.
The V1 will work in the city, but I usually turn mine off. It will pick up redlight cameras and other small signals and can get annoying at time.
