    Default V1 Euro version - Newbie help

    Hi all,

    Just learned about this site a few days ago and am still trying to wrap my head around the lingo and technicalities of RDs. I'm considering buying a V1 and live in Vancouver, BC. I found this one on eBay and he claims to be a distributor:

    Questions I have:

    1) I thought you could only by a V1 directly from the manufacturer, so are these bogus?

    2) If they are real, is the Euro model different from the North American model, and what I can expect to lose or gain?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi krown, welcome to the board.

    First off that link of yours will be removed soon due to rule # 5...

    5. No linking to ebay auctions, period. This includes posting auction numbers and dealer names.

    I can't speak on whether or not the sellers unit may be bogus or not, but I'd say just buy the darn thing from Valentine Research unless you can't get it shipped to you? I have no idea what provinces or areas it's illegal to have a radar in Canada.

    The Valentine sold currently in the US is equipped with an optional Euro mode that can be activated if needed.

    Personally to sum it up, buy direct from Valentine if you can and not off of e-bay.

    Thanks for the info. I removed the link.

    The reason why I wanted to buy it was to save on customs taxes as wellas federal tax, which are nasty. Since the product shipped from another province, all I would pay is shipping.
