Valentine V1 - new competitor w/arrows

Well this could be interesting

https://www.escortradar.com/max360/

I love my V1 and saves me on a near daily basis - have tried the Max last year, and lack of arrows killed it for me - that and the brightness

Re: Valentine V1 - new competitor w/arrows

I can vouch for the Passport Max 2.. this new Max 360 should be a nice upgrade.
I've never had directional arrows so i don't really know how useful they could be but seem like a nice addition.

Could you explain how direction helps?

The arrows alert you at which direction you are be hit from "radar". If arrow is up it means radar ahead and so on. It has saved me a couple of times when a state trooper left his radar on and was coming up from behind "arrow down" I slowed down and a minute later he flew by.

Re: Valentine V1 - new competitor w/arrows

I guess that's a little added piece of mind. I'm just used to slowing my ass down when it goes off, depending on signal type... Direction could help I suppose

Re: Valentine V1 - new competitor w/arrows

Having had a V1 for more than 6 years I am trained like Pavlov's dog to act accordingly

Today for example was rocking home Ka went off arrows showed in front and then off and then in front and flashed side meaning he was somewhere nearby and close ahead ... Stopped at a light and then again ahead.. Took off almost ready to pass and an unmarked car was in the right lane in traffic so I was able to abort and let someone else pass to which the chase ensured...

I guess if you never had them would not miss them, but knowledge is power

I've never understood the need for arrows. Why would it matter where the signal was coming from? If my radar detector goes off, I check my speed and slow down if necessary.

I think of it just like any type of radar air, sea or land the more information the better on the location of the bogey shit I wish they had an app so I could put it up on my screen.

Re: Valentine V1 - new competitor w/arrows

I like knowing where the threat is. It also lets you know when you "pass" the speed trap. Other just keep on beeping. Love my V1. It's a little chatty in city driving but bear flawless otherwise.

Re: Valentine V1 - new competitor w/arrows

Do you have issues with blind spot detection causing false x ban alerts? Looking to get one but don't know if the radar would go nuts with this.

I used to get a Ka band false from the new GMC Yukon's... This has been almost eliminated with a recent update about 3 months ago.

Interesting my V1 is basically unusable due to the false positives. Looks like I will be sending it in to get reprogrammed.
