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.

  • The most advanced radar detector with full band coverage

    My Valentine Radar Detector

    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.

    Valentine One

    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.

    I would recommend this product if you want to stop the money grab that the goverment and the cops dish out in a pretence of road safety.

    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.

    Works Great

    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 :)

    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.

    I'm happy with it

    I bought this detector used at a discount because I'd always heard how good they are but wasn't willing to drop $500 on it. I am not disappointed, even though there are units that have a little better Ka band detection (Escort) and more features on the market. If you don't need GPS and other bells and whistles I think this is it. The V1 has helped me avoid tickets a dozen times - in fact the last time was yesterday - in my Corvette C6 (and I don't really go that fast). The state of Oklahoma is a giant revenue zone for speeding tickets so you can't do without a detector here. The mirror mounting kit is overpriced for my car ($129) but otherwise the unit itself is definitely worth the money you pay for it. I'd recommend it.
