My Valentine 1 came in this morning, so I got to use it for a bit. I didn't encounter any leos, except for one car with it's radar left on, which it did very well on. I was pretty surprised at how quiet it was while driving through town. I don't live in a big town by any means, but there's the everyday Walgreens, Walmart, Kmart, Rite Aid, etc. I did obviously get some K falses, but wasn't anywhere near overwhelmed. It was actually just as quiet as an Escort 8500 and a Whistler Pro, which I have used in the past. The K band muting settings really do work well, I like that feature a lot.
The only annoying thing that I did encounter were false laser alerts. I was right behind a Trailblazer for about a mile, which is what was causing the alerts I guess. I got about 6 laser alerts within that mile.
I will hopefully be able to try it out again tomorrow for a bit longer. I'm hoping I will encounter some leos to get a feel for the ramp up and what not.
Edit: I also meant to ask something: Is it normal for the V1 to run fairly hot? I noticed after about 15 minutes of driving that it seemed very warm, more so than radar detectors that I have used in the past.
