Car and Driver just recently did another radar comparison test. Once again, the Valentine One left the others in the dust. Pricey, yes; but worth it in my opinion. Maybe I can get one for Christmas....hmmmm.Pweb said:
I have a V1. You can plug it into the lighter if you want, you don't have to hardwire it. In fact, it comes with everything you need for either method.Pweb said:Yeah I think it worth the money... It makes sense to invest once and save yourself a headache and paying $$$ to insurance after getting a ticket!
One thing I didn't like is the installation! It would be much easier to just plug it in into a cigarette lighter :roll:
I've a Passport 8500 too. Where did you hardwire into DC power for the unit? I've got to figure a good way to do that, so your experience would be most useful!C230K said:Use a passport and have it hard wired and installed next to the rear view mirror, a little protection always helps.
