I was visiting a friend of mine on vacation who had recently made a long drive. I know it involved I75 in GA and FL and somewhere in Alabama. The owner of the V1 was under the impression that Valentine would pay for up to two tickets in the first year. I had never heard about this and suggested it must have been some other brand.
The other anecdotal content of this post is that in one round trip 3 different people received speeding tickets with the V1, ranging from 19 over to 31 over. I of course proclaimed to them that a radar detector is only a tool. It is not a cop detector and does not make you immune to enforcement. I know two of the tickets were by lidar and I believe both of those in GA. The other, I have to assume, was instant on (it was radar).
