i was in best buy today looking at car alarms when i saw some guy looking at the x50, his went into "service required", and was gonna buy another...go figure. anyways i was tlaking to him and he asked if the Valentine really showed the direction of the radar source and i said yes and showed him my unit with the arrows, when all the sudden, the best buy sales men said "no, the valentine shows the direction YOU are going, not the radar source..its only a compass"! i was shocked! i cleared up everything with the customer and said no, it really does show where the radar is coming from after showing him my unit. The best buy guy looked pissed and walked off. are they mis-informed or just on commission with escort to sell as many units as they can however they can?
