I have a passport x50. My dad has the V1. They both work awesome! The V1 might work a tad better, and you get the arrows telling which direction it is coming from. If you don't like the price tag for the V1, get the passport then. It works just about as good and is much cheaper. It also looks a little better then the V1
ps- and for laser, your more less screwed unless you get a laser jammer. Cause once you get laser'd.... they already have your speed.
