Hello, all, I look forward to joining your community!
I just bought a Valentine 1, a dashtronix kit, and a BlendMount for it.
I am going to brows the forum, but I don't want to make dupe threads or other annoying noob mistakes here. My main interests are:
My car is white with black headlights and projector HID's. Is it a "good target" for laser?
What can I do BESIDES jammers? Is VEIL worth the effort?
I have no front plate.
What kind of radar is used in LA/TX, or is it mostly Lidar? Is there a place I can go that will show me the units fielded geographically in the US?
Picture of the car for illustrative purposes regarding "vulnerability to lidar".
Do I have an albatross, or will it be somewhat hard to hit?
On a side note, I have read that the V1 has issues with heat (I live in the south), will it be fine in the Blendmount mount? or should I remove it when I park the car (theives not withstanding)? I called V1 and they assured me their units had neither a heat nor cold issue, but then stated the V1 was "okay to 140*F". It easily hits that in a parked car when ambient is 105*, so I don't know what to make of that phone call.
Anyway, is heat in the south a non-issue, or should I be concerned?
