I have the Bel RX 65 hardwired into my car and love it. Alot of people seem to love the Valentine One.

NO ticket yet! This picks up the radio signals from Cops. Literaly!, If a cop is a block away, this thing goes off (most of the time)

Where/How did you mount it? Front/center/low in your windshield?

I mounted it on the left side of my rear view mirror. The tint keeps people from seeing it from the outside, unless you are really looking. The tint doesn't seem to effect the performance of the detector so it's a great spot.

Valentine One. Hardwired and w/ remote display.

The picture is sort of deceiving-- in reality, it doesn't block the DIC display at all. Still, with fast threat analysis / reaction
time being key, it's less than optimal. I'm thinking next I'm stick it under the RV mirror so that it's still in your peripheral vision.



This is serious ELINT. After you try the V1, you'll see that all others are just expensive noisemakers.

Once you use the arrows, you'll never know how you did without them.
