I think I'd call Valentine before I trashed a $400 detector to purchase an Escort. Not saying one is better than the other, just that you need to go beyond an internet forum for answers before you decide the sky is falling. I'm sure Valentine knows all about the blind spot monitoring systems. The unit in the WK2 comes from a major supplier and uses the same technology in use by a number of car makers so I'm sure this wouldn't be the first they are hearing of it.

I use a K-40 RL360. I allows me to turn certain bands off if the ACC or Blind Spot sets it off. I am able to use all bands.
I find that if I drive the speed limit I'm in most drivers way. I do tend to speed but I never tailgate, glog traffic by driving slow in the passing lane or speed in neighborhoods or school zones. It's nice to have a little heads up before driving into a speed trap.
The ACC is great. I think it's funny that people are upset about the technology. I hope those same people turn off their radios while they drive. It simply makes driving more pleasant. Enjoy life people!
