Updating a valentine 1
At the conclusion of the test, just before the mode indicator appears in the Bogey Counter, you will see a sequence of "Po P" on V1s with POP coverage. Might sell your old one on Ebay and just buy new one? Havent yet d/l the app so unable to give a review on that option.
* A new warning: When the signal-identification system determines that a current warning is, in fact, a spurious signal transmitted by another detector, it notifies you with a "dee-dah-doo" sound and terminates the warning. Escort offers trade in options (V1 receives 0 when purchasing a Max 360 or Max 2 radar detector).
When running the serial # on these units, click on the upgrade report to see how much it would cost to upgrade the unit later on.
If the unit cost plus upgrade cost exceed 0, you can pass on the deal, unless you don’t plan to upgrade or buying the unit for someone else as a gift and have them pay for the upgrade later on.
As the radar signal intensifies (e.g., when closing the distance to the radar source), the LEDs gradually illuminate from left to right until all eight LEDs are lit, thus warning that the radar threat is in close proximity.
Bought my first Valentine 1 shortly after college graduation & bought my first 5L Mustang 25 years ago.
It's a tall unit, now sitting on my bookshelf at home. Buy new other radar detector (Escort, etc...) for similar or higher price Thoughts...?
Stolen units usually appear in very short ads on craigslist and have a ridicules low price (especially for version 1.8 units) that sounds too good to be true.
Price ranges for 1.8 units can range around 5-0, depending on how old is the unit, software version, its condition and if any other accessories are included with it like mount, power cord, manual, original box etc.
