I've used a Bel RX65 for a couple of weeks now & have been very impressed but am considering switching to the Valentine 1 for the better laser detection. My primary vehicle is a full size chevy van (express 2500, 3/4 ton) with a bulkhead behind the driver seats to keep cargo in the rear of the van. Would the directional indicator pick up radar +/or laser? Considering it's only a $60 upgrade I'm leaning towards it but if the arrows are going to go nuts or get confused I may just stick with what I have. I'd have bought the V1 but the first places I saw it were selling the v1 for $499.
This is similar to what is in my service vehicle:
I have rear & sliding door windows, no windows on the driver side other than on the driver door...
I got into this radar rage after sliding past ~35 LEOs on a 180 mile trip, sneaky bastads - I bought a cobra 903 or something for around $89 at a truckstop 3 weeks ago - I'd rather buy tech than pay them & my insurance - I drive about 10mph over everywhere other than residential areas.
