Radar Detectors


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a Valentine One http://www.valentine1.com/ and from all the reviews that I've read on all the forums and online reviews, it's the best radar detector money can buy. I'll post more info when I get it in the mail and installed.

I'm going to be hard wiring it into the GTO so I don't have a cord running all the way around the place. Can't wait to get it!

Only good for highway use, cops now have radar they shoot when driving so you still won't be able to get an accurate reading in town :agreed:

Good thing Cali is all highway lol :D

my friend had a valentine1 radar. its the SHEEEET. worked great man. actually, correction. 2 of my friends had them. one of them had an SLK230 and the other had a G35

I've heard so many great things about them, just the price, and I'm fond of Cobras

I've had my V1 for about 5 years now.

It has saved my ass so many times on long road trips from South Florida to Gainesville/Jacksonville.

If the X band (gas stations, alarms, supermarkets) gets too annoying in town, read the manual for how to turn it off or at least change the mode to ignore it.

I hardwired the V1 in my Grand Prix. I ran the power wire from under the dash, up the a pillar, and tucked it away in the headliner.

The power plug is attached with velcro to the back of the rearview mirror so that no one knows I have a radar detector when it's locked in the glove box.
