    VR Having Vendor Problems

    I ordered my new car in SEP 2019. At the time, I was told I would likely receive it in July 2020. Now I’m looking at late OCT due to a UAW strike, two month Covid shutdown, as well as supplier issues. By the time it arrives, it will have been a 13 month wait!

    V1G2 quick heads up

    My V1G2 is an early example, delivered in March. Never had to press the POWER button. The V1G2 is wired to the rearview mirror and comes on when I power-on the vehicle (2014 Chevrolet Corvette).

    V1 Gen2 Concealed Display Arrived Today!

    I was driving to the beach with my GF last weekend, and I pointed to the Bluetooth indicator on my V1G2 and asked what she thought about it. Me: what do you think of that? Her: think of what? Me: the Bluetooth indicator on my radar detector, does it bother you? Her: I don’t think anything of...

    V1 Gen2 Concealed Display Arrived Today!

    I never owned a Concealed Display when I owned a V1G1 so I’m unfamiliar with the setup. I now own a V1G2 with a power connection through the rearview mirror. Because I’m getting power through the rearview mirror, does that mean the V1G2 Concealed Display won’t work with my current setup?

    Easy V1 Gen. 2 upgrade

    Mine is one of the earliest units (received March 8). I did the upgrade on the way to my GF’s house. She lives about 30 minutes from me. I’d say the upgrade took less than half the trip, probably about 10 minutes. Very easy, open the V1 Connection app, press the upgrade notification...

    Valentine Suspends Upgrades

    I suppose it depends on your POV. I sold my Gen1 on eBay and got $250 for it, about $220 after fees. Some people may not want to deal with the hassle of selling on eBay, shipping, and the possibility the buyer may want to do a return. Trading in to V1 is quicker and easier. I sold...
