soem help please
So I am planning on buying a Valentine one from this guy i found on craigslist... once i meet up with him how can i test the detector to know if it is working..
and it only comes with the power cord.. (which i found weird because why would he keep the mount?)
anyways, I am going to call valentine one right now and check the serial number.
any help/comments would be greatly appreciated!
*edit* i tried calling valentine one.. its closed. :cry:
but i looked up the serial online and this is what I got.. so what software version do you think it is and how old is it?
V1 Description: Covers X, K, and all of Ka (33.4-36.0 GHz, sometimes called “superwide”). Laser warning is front-only.
Comment: Finds all radars on road today; great on X and K, just okay on Ka--which gets to be more of a problem with each passing day now that Ka has become the fastest-growing radar type. This early, front-only, laser-warning performance was substantially better that the average competitor in its day, but we’ve surpassed it, in a small way some time ago, and now in a large way.
Upgrade Recommendation: We’re uncomfortable now with the Ka performance of these early “superwide” units. We’ve made major steps up in Ka since then, and Ka alerts are now numerous. If you value performance, we advise upgrading. You will also enjoy far fewer Ka false alarms. Upgrades add our latest front-and-rear laser warning; also “internal” Mode Memory, LEDs for band identification, and POP Protection and Euro Mode.
it's going to cost you close to $285 to upgrade it. I hope you get it for a good deal. Make sure you DO check with VR to see if it's clean.
yea i am reading stuff on the V1's website right now..
it seems like it is going to cost me 289 to do a instant upgrade..
so i think this v1 this guy is selling is a old school model... and he is asking for 140 dollars...
hmm. . .
You can buy a refurbished one from VR with one year warranty for $369.

I would not use it it far to outdated.
