I bought my Valentine One on Oct 30th, 2008. I mounted the device in my car and was excited to see the warning signals going off every so often (I live in Los Angeles lots of interference). I have set the device to A (all)...
My problem is that after having owned it for over a month and a half, I have recently realized that it makes ABSOLUTE NO sound at all while around inner city police cars, or Highway patrol cars...
For example there was a massive accident last night, with 10 CHP (california highway patrol) cars blocking the other side of the freeway...as I approached and passed by my unit was completely silent...10 minute later I passed by a inner city cop that had puleld someone over, again silent...finally i pull up to the intersection and another police car pulls by next to me...and the unit is silent...BUT when I pass in front of super markets and some other buildings, it goes off like crazy...
I dont know if my unit is defective or if I'm not using it correctly???
I am pretty sure that none of the radars are turned off as I have seen everything from K, Ka, X, L go off at various times...all false alarms.
Do I need to send this in?
Thank in advance.
