One of the main reasons I am on the board is that my Valentine 1 (I guess v 1.7 as its about 6-7 years old) fails to detect NJ State Troopers. The detector certainly does work but for some reason it has been silent lately (or always?) when it comes to NJ State Troopers. I literally passed within 10 feet of a trooper on Garden State Parkway and the unit gave no signs of the radar. I called Valentine One and they have told me that I would have to pay $180 for an upgrade (ie NEW UNIT as mine cannot be upgraded but can be traded in). I do love the fact that I can Visor mount it, very convenient. Yet, if it does not detect State Troopers what is the point???!!? Anyone has any experience with V1 in NJ... I read the BEL reviews, and they are nice and all, yet it seems V1 is quicker. Though in my experience it DOES NOT have an 11 mile range, I wonder where in the world that number came from I got 500 feet tops...
Also, any place to get LASER MIMIC?
