    Default 360?

    ok... i was reading something about the valentine.. and it said that it was the ONLY all-round/360 degree radar detector... now is that true?? because i could have sworn that the ESCORT Passport 8500 X50 had all around coverage... but i could have just been mistaken...

    It's a lie. All detectors can detect radar from front and rear.

    It doesnt matter, radar can be picked up frontwards, backwards, upsidedown and sideways. Therefore it is picked up 360 degrees. BUT the V1 is the only one able to distinguish the difference, and show it. Its all the same.
