Does anyone have a Valentine One radar detector (or similar one of equal quality) for sale? I'm interested in purchasing one.

Got mine off of CL. You have to make sure the software is current and it is not stolen (call Valentine One). Make sure it has the unit, suction cups, visor clip, cigarette lighter adapter and power cord. There is also a hardwire plug that comes with the unit. Ours came with the box as well but I didn't keep it as it just gathers dust. Good Luck.

Valentine has a '30 day free trial"

Call them and speak to a salesperson- tell them you want to buy one of the 'returns'.

10% off. Best deal on a new V1 with warranty. Period. They are never, ever discounted (since only Valentine sells them)

They may put you on 'a list' but I suspect that even if a return doesnt come in, you will get one.

Got mine 10 years ago. :) When I bought my CPO E36 ///M3, BMW provided a $500 credit... but sent me $1000 instead. Go figure. So, I bought a V1... still have it and it will go in my soon to be acquired E39 M. Has saved me on several occasions... and nailed the other guy.

The V1 coupled with the Trapster app for iphone and android are a hell of a good combination.

Same here.... 8 years ago.

Got one for the wife after her last ticket 3 years ago.

Both hard wired. One of the best investments I've ever made.

a v1 will pay for it self when you have avoided 2 speeding tickets with it, not to mention the price hike in the insurance

I have one for sale with the original box, owners manual, power cord, mounting hardware, and also a hardwire kit that originally did not come with it. PM me if you are interested.

Thanks!

I have a V1 but I wonder if Escort with GPS capability (which reduces false alarms) is better.
Having both I prefer arrows telling me the direction of the cop.

How is that trapster app working out for you? I downloaded it but really havent used it much...

It's not perfect, but it's better than not having it at all. It's dependent on people reporting speed traps, but the ones around my neighborhood have been reported.

Now, I went to JFK last weekened and it was a friggin mine field with red light cameras and speed traps!

I found trapster too busy, it showed radar just about wall to wall, but I think there are a lot of red light cameras. If you frequent a neigborhood, you can pick out the red light cameras pretty quickly.

I rely on V1 and LI and some common sense (common sense being my only weak link!).

You can turn off the different warnings and set up a range from 1 to a quarter of a mile. For someone like me, who has no counter-measures such as a radar detector and/or laser jammer, this ap is handy to have.

Why no counter measures? Because I always find better mods on to which to spend my money :7:
