    1 Bar Ka Blip can be a possible I/O?

    Same thing happened to me on my first day with the V1. Got a short K alert at one blip and then a mile later got lit up by a highway patrol.

    Brand new V1, unfortunate encounter

    Well, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered my first true Radar Detector, the V1. I purchased the re-furb unit, without savvy or CD. After using it for a week I have decided that Savvy is imperative and CD would be a good investment as well. The V1 arrived in the mail hours before my...

    Try to buy Return V1 direct from V1

    Just got off the phone with V1. I was on hold for about 15 minutes, every minute or so a recoding of Mike valentine pops up, its quite amusing what he says. When I finally got a sales rep, i found she wasn't very professional, but she was able to locate a refurb and i ordered it! Although it...

    Valentine One V1 Radar Detector V1.85 with TMF

    I hope you realize that V1 has the option to buy a referb unit for $360 that does include all accessories as well as a 1 year warrenty. Of think about lowering your cost a little bit!

    Second Guesses on V1 purchase in the city

    I do realize that I need to get out there and "bond" with it. But until the glorious day that I am able to purchase one (still lacking some funding) theres not much more that I can do besides asking about its greatness!

    Second Guesses on V1 purchase in the city

    I wasn't asking for speedtrap locations.... He was helping me decide whether or not the V1 will be suitable for my urban environment considering he has experience in the same area. Simply trying to learn about the surrounding areas and trying to get advice from a local V1 user.

    Second Guesses on V1 purchase in the city

    This really helps. very descriptive and I know exactly where your talking about. As far as these falses are concerned, does the V1 pick them up when you are close to the source? are they easy to decipher from radar? One road I forgot to mention, The stretch of Rochelle from MacArthur to about...

    Second Guesses on V1 purchase in the city

    Those wouldn't be a problem for me, most of the routes I take on a daily basis (school) have little to no stores on the route.

    Agreed, as a high schooler it's hard to drop so much money on something like this, I just wanted to take account for all sides of it before I make my purchase and drop $400. I do agree, decision time is over, V1 all the way. How does hookinh up Savvy work exactly?
