Additional antennas are needed for 3-D localization. We need to know if LEO is shooting from above or below us. For example, radar directly overhead cannot clock you.

I emailed Valentine One sales:
I have an older V1 (software version 3.813) that I'd really like to upgrade given its age. Upon visiting your website, I see the upgrade program and new sales are unavailable. I am taking a long motorcycle road trip in early-mid October and would like to have a current model unit. Will the upgrade program return in time or should I purchase a new detector from another manufacturer?​
Their response:
We do not know when we will receive the parts from vendors so that we can resume production. We do understand if you are not able to wait.​
Customer Service​

But hey, they didn't say to just wait 2 weeks!

They did say "resume" so that is a proverbial wet blanket on the idea of an upgrade in the near future. This is the first time they seem believable in awhile.

You can not keep churning out the same product with slight tweaks. You may be happy with your current V1 and running an app but, the general consensus is VR needs to do some heavy lifting if they want to be an industry leader again. The launch is already a disaster so the product has to make up for lost time....
I don't see a consensus, just a lot of moaning from people who probably would not buy a V1 no matter what.

Resume production could mean production of anything, including *gasp* V2

Okay I’ve had enough of Waiting around on VR to upgrade my 3.863, time to pick up something else...another R3 possibly?

R7 if you want a Uniden and used to arrows. Works well.

Well sometimes shouldn't even sarcasm be tinted with a bit of mechanical and electronic realism? :cool:

My point with my semi-funny post was that at most only 3 antennas are needed. Two antennas for front, side, rear or three antennas for front, left side, right side, rear. :lolhit:
Someone suggested it will have 360 degree conformal antenna that also has built in solar cells. :witch::wookie:

What on Gods green Earth are you talking about???? I bet 50% of the this forum would buy an upgraded V1 including myself. I’d also bet 90% of this forum would buy an all new “V2” if it came out including myself. I would say 100% would buy an all new one but there’s that money thing.

Some of you guys are wayyyyyyyyyyyy too sensitive with this thing.

My thoughts to our Admins....

When official news is out and there is NO new V1 make sure we ban people that "make up stories".

Even if the phone stopped ringing, they still wouldn't provide updates. That's never been the Valentine way. Ever.

Too much common sense in this post.
Maybe the phone not ringing for the past few years got them to here

Says the person that has never heard of a Porsche 911! Porsche has been churning out 911s for decades while just simply improving and updating the product. Just as VR has with the Valentine One IE the 911 of Radar Detectors.
Perhaps the best analogy EVER regarding the V1.

Valentine's phone has been ringing like crazy. Valentine Research is worth millions.

I'm just throwing crap out there to keep this post going for 2 more weeks

Still waiting for parts from China and the U.S to arrive and will start to assemble there after. I asked if a month is a fair time frame for the detector to be available and was told that sounds reasonable. Tune in next week for Wheel of BS....

Somewhere in cyberspace.
It's too bad that no one has any "gravitas" in this area of journalism. Who can call the leading manufacturers and get a serious response because they are the recognized heavy weights in the industry and companies can't afford to just blow them off? The stupid phone industry has a huge online journalistic following, and the leading companies vie for favorable reviews.
