    Part I of the multi-part series, which begins with an overall summation, first: Short and sweet. :)

    Veil Guy's Review: Valentine One v3.894 with V1connection LE module Part I

    PS: No it is not and Ad! But a brief summation of the review and I am allowing Mr. Valentine to offer his own words (by referring to VR's website). Full deep-dive review coming shortly. Needed a complete rewrite, sorry.

    This suppose to be a joke VG? I expected to read a long intense review here.

    Normally I am a man of many words. Doh!

    Part I is my coining, subjective, one word summation and attribution.

    I'm letting Mr. Valentine and company to have their voice heard since they aren't directly engaged formally if at all on this forum.

    It's my deference to their accomplishment.

    The wordy and intense review will be coming. I have to start over in light of recent events, which is a very good thing. :D

    I've decided not to send my unit out for observation. Sorry. But the more I think about it, now that I have corrected my messaging of a couple of days ago (dropping the reference to 'king,' Nine's word)), I don't feel the need to have a subjective opinion be tested with controlled objective means as a result of my retraction.

    The word 'King' was the wrong (literal) word because it came off as if I were insensitive to certain members here. My intention and feelings have not changed, mind you and, in fact, I feel more emphatic about my feelings, but I have come to realize that the word itself carried a certain meaning more than the word itself. ;)

    To my was of thinking, the word King is a very broad word to represent objective results of some characteristics that are measurable and repeatable. It carries connotations with its meaning.

    I am now using that one word, because like Nine about his Redline, I feel the word is most apt for the V1 with particular sweeping patterns and other settings and a more accurate and descriptive representation of the unit. (Hey, who says that aren't more than one King in this world, hah!) :)

    Seriously, though, like the original segmented observations of the first remote M3, I myself attributed words to the same sentiment, such as:top of the detector food chain, summiting mount-Everest. You guys later confirmed those empirical observations with your own units and have attributed a short one word description of the same final conclusion.

    I'd prefer at this point the same thing happens in whatever manner these other fellows deem appropriate.

    Like Nike feels, this hot little puppy is not going out of my sight. :)

    I hope there can be the same type of corellation between my methodology and theirs. And if not, then so be it.

    Members here will either accept my proclamation here or reject it.

    Either way, that's OK because again my claim is subjective and likely not testable in a closed course setting.

    Now I am really trying to get some sleep. I am really exhausted at this point. Why are discussions of V1 versus everything else always seem to end up in heated argument? :)

    laters...

    Rest well VG. You have been doing a lot of good work. Rest assured that it has not gone void and we are reaping benefits from your findings, even if it didn't turn out exactly as planned. :)

    He will get the review soon enough. :) For now the word perfection really sums it up! But that wouldn't be possible without our fellow member Franky!!!!

    I think it is time to have a (Custom Sweep) Redline,V1 .94,.93 shootout. What do you guys think?

    I think it's time to finish the book and move on. I like to see a software review, like a serious one between El, YaV1, trapster, Waze etc.

    Wouldn't you like to know what sweeps perform best? Wouldn't you like to know if 3.894 performs better than 3.893?

    I could do without the drama also, but I would like to know what sweeps work best to run on my unit.

    Agreed, this is a case of asking "does it cause more harm than good?"
    V1 has earned it's place, if someone will be swayed by a title they are fickle without regard for the big picture and not asking what will serve them best for their own needs... For many folks that will be the Max.

    Some want all integrated... Albeit adding Escort /Waze etc messes that up anyway.

    I totally understand the hesitancy to loan out the detector. When that was first agreed upon things were in goodwill but aren't at the moment.

    Some will view the action as a put down or disregard but it's not that simple.
    Even that sniff test was done by one party and not under scrutiny of the whole community and was "accepted" as gospel due to trust of that individual.
    But yes it would have been fun... But we are just talking sweeps here, not a title. Anybody can do the test that has a static source to use.

    All we want to know is whether there is magic to the interleave pattern or is the magic in the latest firmware "or both".

    If I had a Ka gunboat would be very easy to test.

    I agree, if I had a unit performing that well I would not want to risk losing it in shipping or it being damaged.

    I would like to know the answer to both.



    So VG, would you share with us what sweeps you feel perform best against your m3's so we can give them a try?

    If I had a ka source I would probably be single lol

    No radar detector is perfect. As much as I love mine, it does have a few limitations like no Spectre immunity, no as good off axis detection as the M3 horned antennas, and having to use an external device to get it to perform better.

    Actually true, I little over the top, but I wanted to convey the overall sentiment, that I felt. It is now commented, which nuances it a bitter more. It's a subjective comment and, so I feel, a slightly very broad sweeping accolade to be sure, just as I feel, the word KING is, which led to some miscommunications over the weekend.

    In the formal part II review, I will clarify to suggest, it's the closest thing to perfection, that I've ever experiences in more than 30 years of driving with them! And it's a continuing work in progress. VR is quietly striving for it. That I can plainly see. So, it's the one word equivalent personal subjective opinion that I hold. Feel free to discount it, as I inappropriately did the dominance that so many currently feel, apparently, to the current Redline.

    In other words, its the closest thing I have seen to "perfect" and it's perfect enough for me personally. :)

    Well arrows certainly make it exclusive, but honestly YaV1 brings it much closer to perfection and even utilizes the front /rear arrow dual opposing horn technology in such a way not possible for any other detector..... Regardless of the range war, being able to package those signals and how their utilized is a whole new story.. Yet to be fully told.
    But interleaving is also a possible hidden secret just now being UNVEILED ! "you like my play on words VG?"

    As you guys have already known, Francky's contributions have been invaluable and most selfless. I have yet to try it and review it for my blog readers (more than the forum members) and hopefully bring more exposure to his continuing accomplishment with the help of very smart forum members. I'll be late to the party. But hopefully joining soon, as CJ might provide me with an Android phone. I guess I'll need another module too. Is this correct, Alan?

    Very small price to pay for having "perfection" (notice the quotes, now).
