I have both the 8500 and the V1. I've run them both in the car, mounted
right next to one another for a 2000-mile round trip. The V1 consistently
alerts before the 8500. The only downside to the V1 imho is that you need
the remote audio piece if you want to run something like the Marc Parnes
Visual Alert (huge kudos to Mark for this great idea). Maybe I should take
h20proof care with my V1, but I just have it on an RCU shelf on my GS
(granted, snugged behind the windshield) and I've ridden through
monsoon-like weather with no ill effects.
