I have a Valentine 1. It started its life in an original Tesla Roadster, but is now in the process of being moved to a Tesla Model X P100D.
I sold the wiring harness with the Roadster, so now I'm trying to figure out how to wire it in to the Model X.
I have the concealed display and the head itself, but nothing else.
Can anyone point me to a wiring diagram?
Do I need the "direct wire power adapter" - because that went with the car :-(

Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcome to the forum. @Jordan Thompson I would ask that question in the V1 section. You will get a lot more responses.

Normally you can hardwired it yourself but the $19 hardwire kit listed here: store.valentine1.com: Shop V1 Parts Department | Valentine One | Radar Detectors is really nice. If you're not going to use it with an app, I would go ahead and spring for the $29.95 Direct-wire Power Adapter with Memory Nice. Their customer service is often hit or miss but I'd still give them a call and get everything you need in one shipment.

Be sure to get the Bluetooth LE adapter while you’re ordering so you can use an app to tame falses, etc. It makes a world of difference. Also, check Valentine’s website for updates to your unit. The recent firmware helps a lot.

Welcome to the RDF!

If it were me, I would put my V1 serial number into the upgrade page to see if it has any available updates/upgrades while you don’t have it running in any vehicle.

If it needs the full upgrade, they return you a new unit with all the goodies that a new one comes with so you will get a free hardwire harness (so of). If that is the case, I would order the V1LE while you’re at it. After using the V1LE with an App like JBV1, you will wonder how you ever got along without it!

If you just need the $79 update, then order your hardwire kit and V1LE with the update.

Those would be my two options after checking the serial number.
