Time for upgrade again...

THis time they have some programming changes that will help prevent false alarms from other cars with RADAR for lane detection and Following Cruise control..

It has become a PIA...

Still works like champ... had car on side of me other day... V1 Chirped real quick then off...

See bridge mile ahead... so I start slowing down...
Car on my side kept going full bore...
He crests the bridge and there is the Trooper waving him over to side...

Best detector EVER IMO...

Thanks, I think I'll send mine in before the summer driving season. I wish they would make a download if they are not upgrading the hardware.

Has anyone looked over at the Valentine site lately, so much about the statement "this is the last detector you would need."

what do you mean?

They have a new model coming out and I am sure they will honor upgrade by you sending in old one and they send you new one for reduce price

I was looking at doing another upgrade to the VR1  since it has been 5 years, so I typed in the serial number and it displayed its been superseded with the new gen 2

I do not have an immediate need to upgrade to the Gen 2 because of the one I have works fine.

But the new model has some features I like.
One is it has built-in BlueTooth and I currently have a BlueTooth module for my old one.
The new one has the ability to do firmware updates online were as the old one has to be sent back to them which is a little pricey IMHO
The new one has 360 coverage versus the old one has front, rear, and sides.

The discount was about 24% based on the selling price of 499.00 on their website.

Used old models are selling for 225-270 on ebay depending on how complete they are

So that's my dilemma, should I keep mine and sell it on ebay and get twice as much above the discount.
But again it is not an immediate need.

I want one but this statement is keeping me from pulling the trigger on buying one

Radar detectors are legal in passenger cars throughout the U.S. except for the state of Virginia and Washington, D.C.


About 10 years ago I was driving on I-95 from NJ though VA on my way to FL, got pulled over and a received a ticket after he "detected" I was using one  ....SO.... on the way back up (a week later) I just removed the power cable so I would not get caught using it.  Well long story short, while in traffic, a cop was next to me and pulled me over because he saw it in my windshield.

Needless to say, even after I showed him the ticket I just revived 5 days ago, he didn't care and  I got another ticket because his words, "intent to use"  :E:

yeah I lost my Shhh threw my detector in my trunk and said a few my choice words.  I guess I'm lucky I didn't get locked up haha

sorry for the  :jacked:



The Governor of Ohio has issued a Stay At Home Order because of the Covid-19 situation. Valentine Research cannot operate for the duration of the Ohio mandated order.

We are unable to receive orders for upgrades at this time. Additionally, we will be unable to respond to questions about orders until the resumption of regular business. Thank you for your patience

Yeah, they are offering a $10k bonus to move there  :o  makes me wonder why. ::)   I'd much rather go down to the Gulf as I enjoyed my time at Keesler :thumbsup:
