This is a Valentine 1 in a city about a 40 minute drive from where I am. I'm not a V1 expert, but V1's website suggests it would need a $79 upgrade to become up to date?

I've been watching for one myself. Personally, I think it's hard to justify the small amount of money saved over a new unit. After paying shipping and sending that one in for an upgrade you're at like $339 and you have to drive both ways to pick it up. Compare that to $399 new? Meh, I'm still waiting for a thrift store miracle.

Yeah. I'd be willing to do the leg work for cost, s&h, + gas and dinner -- but you may be better to call up V1 and ask for an open box return like others have said and get a new one for $359. Plus, no worry about if it's going to work or not after buying it. I mean, this seller has had an account on the KSL site since 2011, and seems reputable -- but still, I agree -- I'd recommend just doing $359 for an open box directly from Valentine.

Exactly:

#00040 - Grand Touring Package includes Valentine One Radar Locator with Laser Warning (item 20015) and SAVVY (item 20220) in a specially-priced package—You save $19.

I'd rather have just the Valentine One Radar Locator (item 20015) at the regular price of $399.

Price: $449.00
Amount: $449.00

I hear you loud and clear! I bought the V1 then the very radar gun I'd been looking for came up for sale so I logically jumped on it. Less than two weeks later TMG is released. So many toys, so little money!!! At least this gives me the chance to wait for test results before deciding between TMG and ALP.

How much does Valentine charge for shipping on those units within the US? or is it free?

I'm not sure. I haven't bought from them, but maybe someone else here knows and can.

My last touring package order carried a $13.53 S&H charge.
