The V1 has saved my ass from way too many speeding tickets. The passport is a piece of garbage because it doesn't even tell you where the radar signal is coming from. Spend the extra money and buy a v1. They have a 30 day guarantee if you don't like it return it. But i guarantee you'll like it.

i never understood radar detectors, i never used on in person, but i see pics of l337's V1 and it just has like 3 little dots that light up. how does that tell you anything about where a cop is/?

it helps is all that matters, if you drive over the speed limit and you don't want to get any tickets then you would be very wise to invest into a radar detector.

Valentine One is the only detector with two radar antennas -- one front and one rear -- to scan all around your car and precisely locate each radar threat.


Ordinary Detectors have a single antenna facing forward: to cover beside and behind your car, they hope radar will take a lucky bounce into the front opening.


Valentine One uses front and rear antennas reporting to an onboard computer to analyze and precisely locate every radar threat, either by direct reception from one antenna or triangulation between both antennas.
