This is my 3rd V1 and our family lives by these machines.
I had this unit hardwired into the wifes C230 on the psgr sun visor, so very hard to see unless you kneel down and look.
Yesterday @ lunch @ Carraba's on I-10 we got hit.... broken psgr window and V1 gone.
Carraba's vid camera's showed two guys in a red grand-am (80's model) park right next to our car and smash the window and then pull away.
Is there a place on this site to post the Ser# to note it as stolen?
I emailed Valentine with the same question.
I assume these guys are re-selling them, and most people will eventually send them in for updates/service.
I'm a little bummed as I thought the hard wire mount to the visor would allow us to NOT have to pull the det down every time we stop somewhere........ it appears we'll have to do the pop-the-det-in-the-pocket trick each time now.
Be careful out there people.
I might do a trick install of the head unit in the middle backseat headrest, and do a concealed remote display in the ash tray..... more to come.
