Re: Valentine One Radar Detector - 2 Questions
I have used a V1 since 2002. It was permanently mounted to my LT, until I totaled it in 2004. I moved it to my car then. It is now mounted permanently in my Tundra pickup, mounted in the overhead console, with the remote display in the lower part of my instrument panel. It works great!
I have long ago come to the conclusion that the "L" mode is best for me. It has never not shown me a real radar, and the false hits are minimal.
While it was still on the LT, when I was doing a lot of cross country riding, I ended up disabling the Laser detection. After a couple years of having it on, it only alerted me to ONE actual laser (and if I had been speeding it would not have saved me due to the instant on of the laser), but found every GM SUV high brake light in front of me. Those GM brake light hits were so often, and so annoying, it made the laser detection pretty useless. I have not had that function active ever again. After you find a few dozen or so GM SUV's you will see what I mean.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
