I was looking at the up grades for my V1 after getting a ticket with out using the V1 I want to be extra careful.
This is what they said:
Status Report on Your Valentine One
Serial Number 5701810515
V1 Description: Radar circuitry known in-house as V1.7 gives high performance on all radar bands. Also,it remembers your �mode� setting when shut off. Has stack of four LEDs on front panel for band identification. Front and rear laser.
Upgrade Recommendation: While this version is not quite up to today�s V1 standard for Ka, it�s almost always good enough, and always better than detectors from other makers. X and K performance is excellent. Upgrading merely to improve radar performance is not cost effective, in my opinion, unless you�re concerned about the POP Mode operating in your area. Upgrading does bring other benefits, including our latest laser warning (front and rear), which outperforms the competitors by a wide margin, and POP Protection. Also, you'll get the new Euro Mode.
So Is the $189 worth getting a whole new unit (The Instant Upgrade)
Let me kno what you think....
