I'm thinking of upgrading my Bel 855sti and getting a Valentine 1. There are a few concerns that I have first and don't know what I should do. I'm mostly going to use it on the highway and not in the city because of too many false positives.
With that aside, one of the things that is swaying me away from the v1 is not having the ability to automute all tones. I've read that there are certain things you can do to the K band to prevent it. With the Bel I had, it would alert you by "beep-beep-tick-tick-tick-tick..." if there was radar around. I really loved that because it wouldn't annoy you much while driving, but yet grab your attention.
