After driving from Upstate NY to Long Island NY, here are my experience with Valentine one:
1) V1 is too noisy....x-band and k-band are too noisy. Compare to my previous Beltronics 995 which is quite. Not sure if this is good or bad for V1?
2) Not much of Ka band and when I passed almost 5police car (or whatever you call them) in HOV lane without Ka band, I'm thinking that V1 is not doing the job (or the police car radar is OFF?)....so what I did is I open and used my 5years old Beltronics together with V1 to check if there's something wrong with my new V1.
3) When both are running, K band of V1 is very good on detecting compare to my 5years Beltronics.
4) V1 is detecting my Beltronics as x-band...not sure if this is okay.
I hope somebody will enlightened me with my experience. Thank you in advance.
