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. :rock :rock :rock :rock

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.

It's not the ONLY radar system that has front and back coverage. My old man has one that has a second antena you plug into it and place in the rear window for rear coverage. That and radars aren't so precise where they could essentially hit a small area. It's a wide band. I had an old cobra (or some such shizz) that went off when I had cops behind me and it was mounted in the front (some fuckers broke into my car and stole it along with other stuff). Laser, on the hand, is much more precise.

Still, thanks fro the info L337. It's always good to be informed.

yea it might have 360 degree coverage...

What all these radar detectors have in common is they just freakin beep. With the v1 you know where the threat is coming from and how many unlike other detectors.
