Last Month I bought an Escort 9500ix. This month while getting my Viper Auto Start fixed at my stereo guy we were talking about Radar Detectors/CM and such mostly he spoke of the forbidden one. But he did say something that interest me, he Had a Used Valentine 1 for $200 in good shape with Hardwire kit and arrow display and Visor kit. It is currently last 3 #811 and V1.8—POP2 with Euro Mode. This is our latest and best performer on both radar and laser.
Upgrade Recommendation: You already have our best.
I live in jersey so im thinking of sending it in for upgrade for the states.
I can't plug in to turn it on, unless i can usee my Escort cord for the Valentine. Hopefully ill be up and running soon. Hope Valentine customer support will be helpful as well.
Its funny I went over 20 years with a cheap Uniden radar and now have 2 High end detectors,lol. I might hardwire them both and use one for city and towns and the Valentine for Highway,
