You still gotta put it in the window, but it turns off the display of the unit and reloactes it to wherever you want to put it with the remote one, so if you dont like looking up (if you put it at the top) you can mount it somewhere else.

Kinda.

It's actuallly more for night driving than anything. When traveling at night, people will tend to get behind someone that has visible light emmiting from their windshield as it indicates a radar detector. This allows you to shut your V1's display off so that people won't know you have a radar detector. You then use the remote display mounted somewhere out of site of other drivers on the road.

That way, they don't get behind you, and they get caught, not you. Escort and Bel offer similar accesories with their detectors as well.

Very true, or you can use the concealed display for other purposes like hiding it. Mount the detector near the sunroof motor or somewhere hidden up high (some work required getting it to fit), and while you lose laser, your radar detection still works great. Then hardwire it to your car and mount the concealed display somewhere hidden like in your ashtray or in your dash somewhere. Or you can use the stealthone mirror for it. That does two things: a) if you get pulled over, you don't have to throw it under the seat if they're not legal in your state, or if you don't want the cop to see it go harder on you or whatever... or B) valentine ones have a high theft rate. If it's hidden, you can just close the ash tray door (for example) when you go in somewhere and no one knows you have one at all. Plus hidden it's a cleaner setup... no wires and a brick on your windshield. hehe
