Ive always favored the V1, But you can hide the v1 under your seat or wherever desired and hook it up to InV1si Mirror , you cant tell its there when its off, it is OEM as well.
It is $399 USD, but its very cool if you got the cash

if you have read all of the posts, sites and Top Radar Reviews...
you would have read that the BELTRONICS or Bel RX 65 is the top competitor... beating out the Val. 1, the passport 8500, and 8500 x50....
yes, the price is a little steep, but i have one, and i must say its worth every penny, i got it a few months ago, a little after it came out, and i couldnt tell you hwo many times it has saved me...
also, it detects POP mode....
which, the Valentine 1 does not detect, and the passport 8500 does not detect it...
the passport 8500 x50 does infact detect the POP mode, but not as well as the RX65
(also if you guys wanted to know.. i can get the bel rx 65 at discount) but im not gonna promote it on the site, jsut letting anyone knwo if there interested... PM me
b/c its almost 400 if you buy it retail, i can get it for almost 150 off
Well I just bought the 8500 x50 and the price was right for me so I went with it...besides my car is already wired especially for it. I heard you can upgrade the 8500 x50 and get it hardwired to your car and have a rear radar detector on your rear liscense plate as well. Also it would allow you to leave your detector in your glovebox.
