Valentine One: Radar Locator

The only radar detector on the market that utilizes two radar antennas for accurate and detailed radar detection. One antenna scans the front, while the other antenna scans the rear. The result is the most protection your car can receive. Ordinary radar detectors typically house a single sensor or antenna on the front of the detector. The advanced Valentine One features dual sensors for the ultimate detection. Aside from the multiple sensors, another advantage to the Valentine One is the continuous upgrades. The Valentine One will never have to worry about becoming obsolete since each radar detector can be upgraded to the latest technology. Never again will you have to throw away that old detector to buy a new one.

Detection

Number of Detected Bands

Yes
K Band
K Band is the most popular radar frequency band that is used today. It is able to detect speeds from a stand still location, or from a moving vehicle
Yes
Ka Band
Ka Band operates within the frequencies 26.5-40 GHz. This is the newest introduced radar band and it is becoming more and more popular. It rarely has a false alert.
Yes
Ku Band
Ku band ranges from 12-18 GHz when used in radar applications.

Pop Alert
Some radar guns operate in a POP mode so they can get a speed reading of a target vehicle extremely fast, resulting in most radar detectors not being able to consistently signal an alert. There are very few radar guns in service in the U.S. capable of POP mode operation. If your radar detector is Pop Alert capable, you may notice an increase in Ka-band false alerts when POP mode radar detection is switched on.
Yes

My Valentine Radar Detector

July 7, 2014

I as I was in the market for a reliable radar detector I went on line and picked three of the top radar detector recommended in the $500 range. I researched and read everything I could find on the three and deced on the Valentine 1. The others were ok but what I liked about the V1 was how simple it is to operate. One knob to turn it off or on and lower the volume and It detects to the front, back and sides of my vehicle I installed and connected it directly into my overhead dome light panel with the direct wire adaptor that came with the V1. I also purchased the V1 Bluetooth which I installed in a couple of minutes and can now operate my V1 through my iPhone which is great if I don't want the detector lights to be visible to other traffic. The entire installation took less than an hour. A friend of mine also has the V1 in his vehicle and is very happy with his. I'm very satisfied with my V1 and recommend it to anyone interest in buying a radar detector.

I am in Australia, and have found the Valentine One to work extremely well. On a number of occasions, it gave me warning of police radars over great distances. Left me plenty of time to keep my speed under the limit.

Valentine One

July 30, 2013

The Valentine One is the best radar detector I have owned. In fact I just purchased an additional one for my wife. I was a Peace Officer for thirty years and am verr familiar with radar and how it works. I am no longer getting tickets in photo radars at 8 miles over the speed limit in a fishing ( Revenue ) zone.

Valentine One

April 13, 2012

I bought a Valentine One from Sonic 6 months ago, it was worked a treat I couldn't be happier with the product and the service with Sonic. The radar has saved me fines at least 4 or 5 times. I would recommend the Valentine One to anyone who was serious about buying a radar detector.

The Valentine One Radar Detector is the BEST!

February 29, 2012

I bought the V1 b/c my old piece of crap Cobra radar detector would beep at everything mainly false alarms. i had a chp officer use his Ka radar on me a few feet away from my car and the cobra radar didn't even go off. So I gave that to a friends for free b/c he thought it was cool. Once i had enough money to buy a V1 ($500), I bought it right away. I asked all my friends that do crazy driving rallies like Gumball 3000, Bullrun rally, Targa trophy, exotic drives. I asked them if i should spend my money on the new Escort 9500ix or the V1. 15 out of 16 ppl told me get the V1. -The escort has GPS to pin-point traffic camera's, and speed cams, X, K, KA,, Ku and instant-on POP modes, laser. --wow traffic camera's--> JUST DON'T RUN RED LIGHTS!! The V1 does almost all of those. it does X, K, Ka, L. and it TELLS YOU WHAT DIRECTION IT IS COMING FROM. -also false radars you can set the v1 so X and K band (usually false radars) won't go off. (K band is usually a speed cam) - ""instead of just beeeeeeping like all the other radar detectors!!!"" A day after getting it in the mail it saved me from a ticket that paid the V1 off. I have never got a speeding ticket, and i speed over 85mph everyday. It saves me every time from tickets. you just always need to keep an eye out and speed when it is save. BUY THE V1 IT IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!

V1 FOR LIFE

November 24, 2011

It has saved me from about 1,500$ worth of speeding tickets. I have talked to many people that do rallies like gumball 3000 and bullrun. They all said get the V1 compared to the escort. The escort 9500xi is a good product too, but you're pretty much spending the same amount for a v1. The escort has gps for up-to-date speed cam spots and traffic intersection cameras. Why do you need to know that info? It's pointless. I would want to know where the CHP is, not red light cameras. The V1 tells you where the cops are and how many there are, by using the arrows. The escort is pretty much like any other radar, it just beeps KA or k or X or Laser. You have no idea where it is coming from so buying an escort is pretty much pointless. My first radar detector was a P.O.S. cobra radar detector that would beep at anything and not beep when a CHP was using KA radar right in front of me... The V1 has saved me from Laser and KA radars many amount of times. It is worth every penny!!!! The V1 payed off when i was speeding (115mph +) and it caught a KA radar at least 2 miles ahead of me. I had enough time to slow down and as well not get a ticket. THE V1 IS THE BEST RADAR DETECTOR EVER!!!!!!!!!

Works Great

November 7, 2011

I made a two month road trip and covered 6500 miles using the valentine one unit. I am not one for speeding, but do like to know what is going on with the public traffic system while I am using it. The unit worked great and use it very often making trips.

looking forward to more of them tickets that I didn't have to pay :)

September 16, 2011

In the beginning I was skeptical about paying over 400 bucks for this system, but when I looked over the internet I found a lot of cheap radar detectors but their performance is not a fraction of this one. Finally after I give it a considerable amount of thought I decided to get valentine one, now I have it for six months I am very pleased with the performance, it does exactly what it was advertised for. I mounted mine right underneith the internal rearview mirror, it came with all accessories needed, except the rear view mirror adaptor that I bought separetly from Amazon, I tested it several times before I start using it, let me tell you this thing is awesome, it detects the wives sometimes in more then a thousand feet away, and the intensity raises as you approach to the sourse, and when you reach the source it gives you a paralell light that indicates the source is on you rides, and as you pass it, it gives you a back arrow, so you know exactly in what locations is comming from, since I get this I received only one speeding ticket, and I forget to turn it on that day, and since then, it is always on, it has 360 degrees detection field, and it comes with many accessories. Here's my advice, get this one and you will not be disapointed, it is a bit expensive but trust me you will get all the money back within a year by not paying for the tickets :) beside all this, this machine is very smart, it does not beep to any radio waves, it really distanguish between them and it beeps only when the threat is present, it the beep was ironic, it will give you a deference in tone to tell you "disregard about the last warning." I am really happy with it, and looking forward to more of them tickets that I didn't have to pay.

Valentine One - nice

June 3, 2011

I would recommend this detector for anyone in the market for one. Very accurate and sensitive along with dual direction detection helps locate the source. I would say that this device has saved me from getting several tickets over the years and I just bought one for my daughter. A bit pricey but seems to be a quality piece as my first one still operates and is 7 years old.

YOU GOTA GET ONE OF THESE

May 22, 2011

I road with someone that had this Valentine and couldn't believe how good it really worked. I bought one and loved how it really does work. It works over hills, round curves and for a very long distances. Theres a radar trailer set up 1 block up and then 8 blokes around the corner and i have to put on mute when I back down my driveway. That means its picking it up over at least 12 houses. I got another one for my work truck. Very well worth every penny. Its gota be the best one on the market.

Valentine one

March 30, 2011

This radar was a gift to me for my birthday and I love it. It's very accurate and there's nothing bad I can say about it. I can say it goes off in front of store doors and all a lot, but I still highly recommend it. It's saved me from a few tickets for sure.
