    Default V1 has remote detector?????

    I was looking around and saw the V-1 as a remote detector!
    The price is expensive and so is the regular V-1, for $500.
    I thought you can only buy a V-1 through their site?

    The add says "Valentine One Remote" Sadly this is "CLEVER" marketing made to MISLEAD the consumer. If I was Mike Valentine I would make a phone call to these guys!

    This is a (V1 REMOTE DISPLAY) with some OTHER manufacturers ANTENNAS etc. Why put the sensors under the bumper? How much will the range decrease on that setup?

    No I am sure it's a real V1 that has been taken apart and made into a remote installation.

    What it is, is a sealed box that you put the V1 into and mount it under the bunper, grille, etc and then run wires to the remote display in the vehicle. This is some custom thing that the dealer in question is doing.
