.... which one should I use? The coiled or the telephone cable?
I grabbed my case last weekend and jumped into a non-RD equipped car.
V1 gen 1
V1 visor mount
V1 coiled cord
V1 dual port power adapter
(My suction cup is BlendMounted in my car)
Setup in the vehicle was smooth...
2017 Ford Focus ST1. Here are the options:
I’m wondering if perhaps #87, the heated steering wheel, which as far as all the switches I’ve found, is something I don’t have.
Pardon the photo orientation. I did take them vertically so it’s the forum code .....
My first experience was as a passenger, the original Escort. I didn’t think much of it since it didn’t seem to do much lol.
Then my own first ownership was late, late 80s for me.
I don’t remember the model of my first but it falsed enough that I thought it was busted and exchanged it for...
Earlier this week, on a whim, I went into Valentine One's website to look at the V1g2V2.
Then on a secondary whim I looked at accessories.
Right now I have my V1 Blend Mount'd to my mirror but the coiled cord coming down and back into the armrest power port which has V1's cig lighter...
Waze tells me that there is a cop up ahead along my route.
This part of the route is surface streets.
The only thought that went through my head was "this is different". Cops don't normally show up in this part, as in hardly ever. I should have been paying attention to the overall situation...
It was mid-afternoon on Saturday in southeast Florida and I'm cruising along in the right lane of the express superslam at my normal highway speed of 72-75mph
(speed limit 70 though I've gone 72-75 on hwy since getting my license in the idiotic 55mph days).
I had my V1 mirror-tapped into my...
My previous Ford Fiesta SES had an autodimming mirror which made it easy to tap into the 12V there (using mirrortap) but the ST doesn't have an autodimming mirror lol.
Can I somehow tap into the overhead light circuit, fish a wire FROM the overhead light area forward and out the...
In slow moving traffic earlier the V1 laser alert lit off, continuous, from behind.
The only possible culprit seemed to be the S60 behind me.
He changed lanes and the alert stopped as he got next to me.
At the light I did a web search and results say the S60 has a brake-assist option that...
I had originally set up my V1 using V1Connection according to @Vortex 's youtube on this subject and his web page entry: www.vortexradar.com: How to Program Your Valentine One using V1connection tor the iPhone
I began planning a winter road trip from FL to NY and I came across the thread here...
lol. I wasn't sure if it would all fit in the title :D
When you buy a new V1 and a new V1CLE BT module you get everything you need to create a functional system, including being able to hide the cables and hard tap the wire for a power supply. The V1 comes with two mounts, a suction mount...
V1 arrows in my case.
I'm merging from 595W onto the 595W Express lanes.
The V1 catches a whiff of Ka .... from behind. Naturally my first thought had been that it was from ahead. After all, this is essentially the beginning of the Express westbound direction.
Now TWO signals from behind...
Went out last night to try and find some speed traps lol.
Didn't find any, not from driving, not from Waze.
I thought I would try and find some surface street traps, for example one of those idiotic 35-on-a-4-lane-across-road-that-should-be-50 type of thing.
I found something similar when a I...

I'm looking to order a factory V1.
What I would like to do in order of preference:
1. Use the app(s) in iOS.
2. Use the concealed display
3. Hardwire the whole system
3a. Be able to move the unit from vehicle to vehicle (buying double components is ok to me)
I'd like to mirror mount the...
Now that the west side Express lanes of SE FL are (FINALLY) opening up I've decided to get a radar detector.
I actually tried two, in the Before-Time (ie: the 80s). Two semi-economical units, one much better at dealing with falsing than the other, but ultimately I returned both as my secret...
