I sent my V1 along with $45 in a few weeks ago for a tune up. I've had my V1 since 2007 and my arrows seemed to be getting confused. I felt like my front radar was losing a lot of its sensitivity.
Anyway, I got my detector back very quickly and it has been performing flawlessly. Today, I checked the mail and I had a letter from Valentine Research. I opened it to find a check for $45...
This is a 4 year old detector... I had no problem paying $45 for it to be tuned up but wow, talk about great customer service. Valentine customer for life! I do not care if they never release a new version; I might have to buy another V1 just as a way of supporting such a honest business!
