uses Cheetah's Radar Datalink and Laser Datalink to control alerts from
your own radar and laser systems if you choose to link them with the
Valentine 1 Identifies Two Different Cops From Over 2 Miles
Driving down alligator alley in South Florida, the V1 starts off beeping
the Ka band and showing 1 signal ahead of me. V1 starts beeping around 78
miles on my trip computer with me traveling at aprox. 70mph. As I'm
approaching the bogey the V1 signals a 2nd bogey has appeared. As the first
bogey drives past (at 80 miles on my trip computer, so giving me 2 miles of
notice while me and the cop were closing at 70mph towards each other) the
V1 indicates the cop driving past me, but continues to show another signal
still coming from ahead. Eventually the signal from the first cop weakens
and the forward arrow starts to flash showing that the bogey ahead is the
stronger signal. At 82 miles on my trip odometer (another 2 miles warning)
a state trooper drives by. Without the arrows I might have thought I was
still picking up that first cop and had a false 2 signal reading from the
signal bouncing off other vehicles or something like that. There is no
replacement for the arrows!
RADAR DETECTOR VS POLICE RADAR
Driving on I-94 in Michigan towards Indiana State Line.
What you hear on the video is me, reading the police radar frequency off my
Beltronics STI Display, Ka 34.7, MI State Troopers are using Stalker Radar.
Second clip I think the cop was using a handheld K-band Police Radar.
Extremely useful to use an RD that allows you to read the police radar
frequency, in this way you'll know right away which Ka-band alerts are real
and which are false. Only high-end RDs do have this feature built-in.
ALL Beltronics and Escort RDs are built in Mississauga (Toronto suburb),
And if you also have a CB Radio in your vehicle with a pretty good CB
Antenna, feel free to let everybody around know where the cop with radar is
Radar Detectors legal in 49 states out of 50. VA the only weird exception.
Illegal in all trucks and most of the commercial vehicles over a certain
If you ever decide to get AND use a Radar Detector, get a professional one,
V1 or Beltronics or Escort. Yes, not cheap but it's worth the investment.
Escort Redline vs Cobra ESD7570 radar detector
Testing the $38 Cobra ESD7570 detector against the top of the line Escort
Redline against a fixed 34.7 Ka band speed sign. The Redline alerts at 2
miles (with multiple obstructions) vs Cobra at .4 miles (unobstructed, line
of sight). In unobstructed areas, the Redline can pick up a signal at
around 10 miles.
The point of this video is to show the two extremes in radar detector
performance. A Cobra is better than nothing, if that is your budget. But
what you won't get with that is a cop shooting instant-on radar from a
hidden spot, shooting maybe every 30-60 seconds. With the Redline, you will
pick up his distant shots before you are in his kill zone. The Cobra in
that case will be too late to the party.
Great Save from the V1 Radar Detector
V1 one has an awesome save with two cops running instant-on Ka radar!!!!
Read the details here:
The video shows you my concealed display...The detector is mounted high
next to my rear view mirror.
Here are some link for people to teach them selves about radar detectors.
To those that think the V1 is too expensive your personal opinion but my V1
has paid itself off with in the first month I bought it. When I drove NY-CO
in 24hours it was the detector I used. Now Radar detectors won't save you
from laser guns but for laser guns I have a laser jammer on my car. My car
is built for long road trips on the interstate with all the gadgets I got
in it. When I get home for the summer I'll make a video of all the
different things i have.
If you are looking for a cheap radar detector that works well do NOT get a
cobra get BEL, or Whistler. The BEL v955 is a great detector for only $179,
It has got great performance.

Best Radar Detector Reviews 2015
What are the best radar detectors for 2015?
During this 4-minute video you’ll discover the three most important
things when selecting your radar detector such as:
Where do you live and drive – Where you live and drive is an important
consideration when selecting the best radar detector for you.
As an example if you live and/or frequently drive in Virginia or parts of
Canada you will need a detector that is stealth to the Spectre RDD, such as
the Escort REDLiNE.
If you don’t live or drive in these areas, then you have two other
considerations, do you drive mostly in the city or on the highway.
If you’re a city driver then you would want a detector that has internal
GPS to block out false alerts and have an photo enforcement database.
Either the Passport or Passport Max2 would be good choices.
If you’re a highway driver, then you would need to own a detector that
has extreme range, like the Passport Max2 or the Escort REDLiNE.
However, if you drive equal amounts on both highway and city, then you
would want to select a detector that has both long range and GPS filtering,
such as the Passport Max2.
Next you will need to determine the features that are important to you in
your selection of your radar detector.
If you live and/or drive in an area where photo radar or red light cameras
are used, you would want to select a detector that has an internal GPS
photo enforcement database, like the Passport Max2.
Escort Live is also a great feature to have, enabling your radar detector
to share real time alerts with other radar detector users in your area.
Both the Passport and the Passport Max2 have this feature already built in.
Then your budget, how much can you afford to invest into your radar
The most affordable entry model radar detector is the Passport, which
retails for $349. However if you can invest more, then the Passport Max2 is
the best investment.

Police Caught Me With A Radar Detector
Unfortunate situation when I got busted with a radar detector causing me 3
demerit points, $170, and paralegal fees. It's definitely not worth it.

KM/H. Come on, use some common sense. And I'm sorry I didn't include that
I'm from Canada, I didn't expect that ppl would be so ignorant as to what
country I'm from.
