Frist, I don't care how bad is the customer service or how arrogant of Valentine is. I only believe in and trust the product itself. But after they invented the POP, things are going spiral down into disaster.
Radar detector is a serious product like a military weapon. If it fails, the enemy will nail us very bad. I could not believe the J error that I saw in go.mouse video when he detected a Ka alert. (go.mouse is a one of the forum member here.) He has to reset it by pulling out the plug. I am sorry MikeV, this is not a new product just came out of the blue; any drivers could cause an accident because we have to babysit on an immature product. And now the E, give me a break. Enough is Enough.
I could understand any new electronic products could have bugs. For example, Nikon D200 has a banding problem when it comes out. However, V1 is a product that has been here with us for more than a decade and they pushing the new version out for no reason. We are not a lab white mouse for testing the V1.
Valentine One is hardly innovative at all. The computer chip is old that cause false alerts more often.
Mike, here is what I want: A Valentine Two.
Not a V1 with version 1.9, a new detector from you call Valentine Two.
Here is the spec that I am looking for and I am serious here:
-Stealth against all RDD with no leakage
-A bright and clear LCD screen. No more, red LED please.
-A wireless remote laser jammer for quick dismount or install.
-Add one more arrow to distinguish whether the radar souce coming from the opposite lane or on the same lane ahead.
