Finally had time this morning to go to the Fedex warehouse and pick up the V1, which had been sitting since Wed. afternoon. Seems to work fine, and alerts about as much as my RX65 did to door openers around town, but not really any worse.
When I power it up I get the following characters displayed (one at a time of course):
then A - for the all bogeys mode.
From the Valentine website it says that a 'P' displayed just before the mode indicator (the A I'm assuming) means the detector has been changed from factory settings. I checked the settings against the info on the Valentine website, and everything is set to the factory settings.
I paid the full price, didn't order a returned model. Anyway, I'll probably keep it, just noticed that the P does come up immediately before the mode indicator.
Here's a pic of the install, usiing an Invisicord going to the back of the mirror as the power source.
Only thing I don't like so far is the suction cups seem kind of weak. I'm probably going to pull the suction cups off and use some the 3M Dual Lock in place of the suction cups.
