DFWWIZ said:Even long rolling hills like in Kansas, if you are approaching the top of one and the top of the next hill is 2 miles and a cop "shoots" a car that is say a 1/2 mile ahead of him, the V-1 will pick it up easily. The arrows are nice because as you roll by the radar it moves from front arrow to side and then to the rear arrow confirming that you have passed by it. Sometimes you never see who is tracking you, or if its left or right of you-well now you know. The volume also has two settings- the main volume is the knob and then muting volume is the ring around it. So if it does become annoying while its beeping, you simply push the knob and it goes down to your preset muting volume...not completely off.
We were talking earlier about Bel and Passport being the same parent company. Escort was the forerunner to Passport and the developer of Valentine is the person who helped get Escort going. He became disenchanted with the direction Escort was going which led to his quitting and starting up Valentine (his name).
That's great!! Looks like I'll chip in for a valentine then and go with that. Just got to save up a bit for it. Thanks for your help and info it helped a ton
Edit: how often do you have to upgrade the firmware for the v1? Also what happens if you don't? Let's say u have a new one available but I don't bother to upgrade it.
