Use to have a Uniden. But in NJ, you constantly get false triggers due to the high number of alarm systems to the side of the road from other businesses. So, I stopped using it. Want to get a Valentine One detector. They've been the best for years.
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 just checked their web site (www.valentine1.com). Pretty damn impressive detector! Kinda pricey though
Thanks for the info! I think it's indeed - the best!
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:
But my question is: "Were you doing it?"NetMatrix said:lol if u think thats price take a look at a recent ticket... i just got gunned at 53 in a 25 and have to pay like 220 + court fees and insurance will go up
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.
