It is obvious i am an Escort owner. I want to put that up front. There a many Fanboys here each for their own favorite brand. I am not a Fanboy as I am an equal opportunity basher when there is a reason to communicate an issue.
With that being said...
Besides the V1 I have been seeing for years are there other models that is produced by Valentine.
I am interested because I do like the fact that V1 is a favorite for many and it is purported to have the best range (at least as far as GOL goes if I am correct).
If not, why do you think that Valentine has not added more functionality and addressed the issues that the owners have been complaining about.
I forsee that GPS functionality is going to be a requirement in the future for Radar detectors with the advent of RoboCop cameras. Does anyone know about Valentine adding GPS or stealth.
I realize there are other companies that manufacture interfaces for the
V1 but that could mean unresolvable issues like oscillator interference from the add-on devices.
Before you comment, this is not meant to start a war as I am honestly interested in what you know and what I may have missed.
I am regularly advised of the faults of the Escorts and I hear once in a while of the Ka issues with the Valentine.
Arrows mean little to me on the side.
What is the biggest reason I would not want to buy a V1?
To give you an idea about the type of driving I do. Much is my driving is on the open road between Phoenix and El Paso. I like taking the back roads to air out my car every once in a while on the county roads where DPS uses C/O and I/O along with the Sheriff.
How well does the V1 deal with falses?
Thanks in advance for your UNBIASED and HONEST advisement.
