    Only getting K band pins

    I have been using V1 Driver for awhile & have never looked at the pins on the map. I have gotten a lot of Ka & a lot of K encounters & a few laser as well. However, when I look at the map I find only pins for K band encounters. Are the other encounters not being logged, or do I just not...

    Maiden Voyage

    Took my V1G2 on the road for the first time today. WOW! I've had a V1 from the early 80's & carried it thru two upgrades, even though it wasn't the highest upgrade it could be... I had gotten a bit disappointed at how noisy my V1G1 was with false alerts. I was continually muting it & it...

    Received G2 today, Getting GPS update messages from V1 Driver

    Pretty exciting for me. It's a Christmas present & birthday present combined. Took it to the car & configured it with V1 connect. Seemed to go well. Brought up V1 Driver & it seemed to connect OK, however I get messages that my GPS didn't update within 10-12 seconds. I'm using an iPhone 11...

    V1 Driver & Red Light Cameras

    I think I understand about V1 Driver & GPS lockouts, except for red light cameras. Will the V1 Driver lockout a red light camera the same as it would a door opener or speed sign? I will be using it with Waze & usually it will alert, but what about the V1/V1 Driver?

    Was able to access V1 Upgrade

    I visited the Valentine website & the upgrade link last night as I have since I received my upgrade email from VR back around march of 2020. Surprise, I was able to access the form for requesting an upgrade. I filled it in, printed it & shipped it today by UPS. (damned expensive) Hope it...

    VR Having Vendor Problems

    Just called to see if there was an imminent restart of the upgrades for V1 G2. Short answer is no. Seems they are having problems getting parts from one of their vendors & V1 G2 is on backorder. They said they expect it to be several more weeks. (Not what I was hoping for...)

    V1 Driver vs JBV1???

    Have not used either, but have a V1 G1 & am anxious to upgrade to V1 G2. I currently have an iPhone 11, so it looks like V1 Driver is my app, right? I plan on using it with Waze in foreground with audio alerts coming from my iPhone... I think. What does JBV1 do better than V1 Driver? Will...

    Sign in for V1 Update?

    I've been checking often to see if updates have resumed. I am anxious to upgrade... Usually, I get the notice of temporary suspension. Just now it was different. There is a notice on the home page of suspension of upgrades. If you enter your serial number and submit: Before: Displayed the notice...

    Custom Frequencies

    As soon as they resume upgrades I plan to upgrade my V1 G1 to a V1 G2. I am new to the world of custom frequencies and am a bit boggled by it. I understand that custom frequencies can be used to reduce false alerts. Makes sense. However, I have seen a seemingly wide range of frequencies for K...

    Should I turn off V1 Laser Detection?

    Does V1 laser detection warn the driver and make it possible to avoid a ticket? I've heard that once you get a laser alert, it just lets you know you are about to get a ticket. If that is so, why not just disable laser detection & reduce the noise?

    Is there still K band radar in Texas?

    I live in Georgetown, Tx. I travel to Austin, Round Rock, and Houston. Anyone know of a reason I shouldn't run my rd with just Ka enabled? I'm pretty certain I can turn off X band, but how about K band? Thanks for any wisdom. I appreciate the help...

    Waze Integration with V1 Driver

    Any chance V1 Driver and Waze will be integrated to share info on police radar? The possibilities boggle the mind.

    V1 Driver GPS Lockouts

    I have a V1 G1 and can't wait to get the V1 G2. I have already installed the V1 Driver app and started reading up on both. I know that one of the benefits of using the V1 G2 with V1 Driver is GPS lockouts. For example, if it locks out a stationary your-speed-is sign, then a cop sets up radar...

    NEWBIE struggling with GPS Accuracy always RED indicating INFINITY

    I am running V1 Driver on an iPhone 11 with the latest iOS update. I got the app to prepare for purchasing a V1 G2 upgrade to my V1 G1 Valentine One detector later this year. I figure that experimenting before driving is safer than experimenting while driving with a new rd and a new app. So, I...
