    Valentine One -- Versions through the years

    I pulled this information off the web (wiki) for RDF members to quickly reference the different hardware and software versions of Valentine One detectors over the years:

    Each hardware version has an associated software version with it. Thanks to mrkookm, hardware refers to the internal components.

    As of 16 September 2014, the colored bolded versions are current.

    Hardware Version 1.85:
    3.894 - TMF2 for blind spot vehicles, Improved Euro Mode with wider K band range to cover lower frequency photo radar in Europe
    3.893 - ESP Programming, the changes were the V1 ID went from a '9' to 'A', checksums went to all packets
    3.892 - Added ESP
    3.891 - Traffic Monitor Filter added


    Hardware Version 1.8: This platform with Crystal Tuning became identified as "1.8A" beginning with 3.851 thru 3.873
    3.873 - Traffic Monitor Filter Beta
    3.872
    3.871
    3.868
    3.864 - Added Euro X band (may have been Beta tested on 3.863)
    3.863
    3.861
    3.858
    3.857
    3.851 - Crystal Tuning added, Digital Temp Control ('A' Designation on the FCC ID)
    3.826
    3.825
    3.824
    3.821 - Added Euro Mode; POP2 version introduced;
    3.819 - Beginning of 1st GEN POP
    3.818 - Added POP detection; beginning of 1st GEN POP
    3.817 - POP Beta
    3.816 - POP Beta
    3.813 - last pre-POP model
    3.812 - Factory Test mode introduced (pre-POP/POP Beta)
    3.802
    3.789
    3.619 - New case, new horn design, new logic board (radar and laser boards integrated into 1), new front and rear laser sensors, new face display

    Hardware Version 1.7:
    2.909
    2.879 - K Band AutoMute timing extended to a max of 30 sec.
    2.869
    2.849 - Added K Band AutoMute, AutoMute over-ride, and K Band rear muting with max of 10 sec.
    2.695
    2.693
    2.691
    2.690
    2.680
    2.391 - new case, same horn, additional logic board (for laser), front laser sensor, super wideband Ka coverage; Cost of laser sensing V1 $400 MSRP

    Hardware Version 1.6:
    1.36 Later model had Front Laser and SuperWide-Ka
    1.36 - First model, no superwide Ka Band detection (covers 34.2 to 35.2 GHz only), no laser detection; $299 MSRP

    Please share generalized data (not just instances that only your RD has encountered) associated with each version so others can see how the versions have changed over time. For example, the version when the ESP was introduced and when the POP2 was introduced.

    Can we expand this to include what each new version did over the previous? Ex: 3.892 (added ESP)

    And technically, the 3.873 is where the TSR appeared, not the 3.891.

    Well you see that car traveling at 82mph is endangering the lives of the citizens of the great state of Georgia.
    So they must have officer to accelerate up to 110+ to catch the criminal in question for your safety.

    3.892 - Added ESP and Legacy (force display)
    3.891 - Traffic Monitor Filter added


    Hardware Version 1.8:
    3.873 - Traffic Monitor Filter Beta
    3.872
    3.871
    3.868
    3.864 - Added Euro X band (may have been beta tested on 3.863 and/or 3.861)
    3.863
    3.861
    3.858
    3.857
    3.851
    3.826
    3.825
    3.824
    3.821 - Added Euro Mode
    3.819
    3.818 - Added POP detection
    3.817 - POP Beta
    3.816 - POP Beta
    3.813 - last pre-POP model
    3.812
    3.802
    3.789
    3.619 - New case, new horn design, new logic board (radar and laser boards integrated into 1), new front and rear laser sensors, new case, new face display

    Hardware Version 1.7:
    2.909
    2.879 - K-band AutoMute timing extended to a max of 30 seconds
    2.869
    2.849 - Added K-band AutoMute, AutoMute override, and K-band rear muting with max of 10 seconds
    2.695
    2.693
    2.691
    2.690
    2.680
    2.391 - new case, same horn, additional logic board (for laser), front laser sensor, super wideband Ka-coverage

    Hardware Version 1.6:
    1.36 - first model, no super wideband Ka-band detection (covers 34.2 to 35.2 GHz only), no laser detection, $299 MSRP


    Here are some issues...VR states the factory test mode was on the 3.619 to 3.802, where as IIRC it is the 3.812 and 3.813, isn't it? If so, then VR's chart may be off. They also claim to have added Ku with the 3.619, which I don't believe is correct...can anyone verify the feature info listed to ensure they aren't off by a generation or my mind hasn't left me?
    How to Reprogram V1 Radar Detector

    Some other things we need to determine when, as a 'check list'
    • Crystal Tuning
    • Digital Temp Control (the 'A' designation on the FCC ID IIRC)
    • When the FCC ID was added
    • When the FCC ID was changed
    • False alarm retraction
    • when front laser was added to the 1.7
    • when the 1.7 had the two faceplate changes
    • when memory was added to the unit
    • when the unit went from 300 to 400 (I believe with the early, maybe first, 1.7)
    • which units were betas and which were stables and which were major releases
    • When accessories changed (ex: powercord changes to using a new 2A blade fuse to replace the 1A circular one).
