Question Anyone used the Valentine 1 radar detector?

Just wondering if it is worth shelling out the $400 for it...

(severely in need of updating, around 14 vehicle current)

If you get one used, make sure it is complete( hardwire cord, coily cord, cig plug, suction mount, visor clip). Also, ask what version the unit is (1.6, 1.7, 1.8 etc.) I think 1.8 is the newest version.

The link above will allow you to input the unit's serial# and it will tell you what version it is and what improvements the current units have.
I would buy a new one.

I've seen lots and lots of Polica in the last 2 weeks and am getting a bit paranoid. They had a HUGE sting out here in Arlington on 360 about a week ago.

Gotta get a few bucks up for that detector

Another vote for the Valentine V1. If you can't afford it just save up longer to get one.
