I've read the Valentine One website countless times, I've contemplated getting a V1 because of it's praises (I've weighed the downsides too). The range on the V1 is similar to that of the Escort X50 and the Beltronics X65 so it's not the extra range I'm interested in...
1) I do a lot of city driving, I need a detector that can filter the K band in a major city. (X band will be disabled entirely.) I hear little L or something will help with this.
2) My area is confirmed to use POP mode, my RX65 doesn't false often on this at all, so I need something that can detect POP mode. (K/KA band)
3) One thing I love about my RX65 is it has never (to my knowledge) false on Ka band, an alert on this band is good as gold and I can visually confirm. Will the valentine false on Ka like my cheap cobra? Ka alerts every 1500 feet or be picking up Ka alerts from leaky detectors?
What it comes down to I guess is I want a detector that won't false all the time (maybe I'm asking too much from a Valentine??) and has excellent detection. Should I stick with what I have, or become a zombie?
