We would recommend looking at the Bel
Valentine One has a patented warning system relying
on both forward- and rearward-facing radar antennas (front and rear laser
sensors too). It goes beyond Ordinary Detectors by telling you -- on every
alert -- where to look, and how many to look for. Once you have this intelligence
report, you can easily decide when to defend, and when you can simply
shrug off a non-threatening alarm.
Valentine One was new in 1992. Since then, every part inside the magnesium
case has been improved, several times for many of them. Continuous improvement
keeps Valentine One the top performer; Car and Driver confirms that the
margin over the others is wider now than ever.

V How to tell if V1 has been changed from
If the unit has been changed, P will appear briefly in the Bogey Counter
soon after V1 is switched on (after the lamps-on test, but before the

On V1s with serial numbers ending in 0600 or higher, a flashing red LED
just to the right of the Bogey Counter during the sequence above indicates
that Ku coverage has been activated.
